How do you tune a violin with a piano?
Play an A on the piano (A above middle-C). Then tune the A string on the violin to match the piano. Then you just tune the violin as normal - ie double-stop the A/D strings and tune until you hear the harmonics, likewise for the D/G and A/E strings. I find it useful to de-tune the violin first (say, flat) so that I know I need to tune each string 'up' until I get the harmonics right.

Getting a Better Sound on Your Piano with Piano Tuning?
Do you own an old piano and it just sounds horrible? Do you own a baby grand piano, and every time a person plays the piano, it seems to screech out notes? Maybe you have simply wondered what is wrong with the piano. Some people even think they need to buy a new piano when the sound starts to worsen. The truth is the piano probably just needs a tune up. Pianos are instruments that require a lot of care. Only after a few months can the notes on a piano sound different than they originally sounded. This is because the piano is actually a stringed instrument. Many people do not realize a piano is a stringed instrument, and that the strings loosen due to the ordinary wear and tear of a piano. Because a piano is a stringed instrument, it requires regular maintenance from a person who is a professional at piano tuning. A person who tunes pianos can make any piano sound normal again. Piano tune ups are not expensive, and they are surely a lot cheaper than going out and paying thousands of dollars for a new piano! For the person who wants a piano to sound better at the lowest cost possible, getting a piano tune up is highly recommended. A piano tune up can actually save a piano too. If a piano is near its breaking point, such as it keeps losing keys or parts of it are chipped, a piano tune person can usually fix such parts of the piano. A piano tuner is usually well versed in the instrument of the piano and can fix any part of it that needs a bit of tender care. A piano tuner can also look at any problems one may notice on his or her piano and recommend a solution. If one needs a piano tune up and some problems fixed on a piano, then he or she should call up a piano tuner as soon as possible. Many music stores offer this great service at a very low price. Some piano tuners will even do the job for free, depending on where one bought the piano.
