|If you feel that you may be playing a piece out of tune, try playing it very softly. It is often easier to tell if a note is in tune if it is played quietly, not blasting in your ear.
Also, remember that playing a note in tune matters in context with the surrounding notes. If you play a note perfectly in tune, but the notes all around it are are all a half-step sharp or flat, the note that is in tune will sound wrong, while the others will sound right!
