Unfortunately, a lot of piano and music store staff aren't aware of the existence of digital pianos.

Tuning the piano
To keep the piano in concert pitch, it is important to tune it on a regular basis. Tuning is the process of adjusting the vibration rate of each string to match it with a standard frequency (such as 440 times per second). On average, 230 strings in a typical full piano and they are under immense pressure.
Piano tuning requires concentration and a willingness to be able to hear the relationship between two strings played together. Therefore, pianos must be kept in a quiet area far from television and loud conversations as well as vacuuming.
Start with the middle C4-C5. Locate a key and find the corresponding note on the keyboard (usually located by counting 13 white and black keys). Find that note on your electronic tuner, and identify its tuning pin, then slowly remove each mute one at a while, listening to the strings for a slight shift in frequency. If you notice that a slight variation you can tune the pin by using your tuning lever.
