Regular Piano Tunings
Continues the Love of Playing
Remember the thrill you felt when you
first got your piano? How it sounded as good as you imagined it should. When
every part was clean, in tune and properly regulated. Well, like your car, a
piano that has routine tunings and maintenance will continue to perform as
was originally intended. A fine piano is expected to last a
lifetime, unlike most of
the items people buy, and if it
is serviced properly, by a competent piano tuner-technician, it could last
for several generations.
In addition to tuning your piano,
I will perform routine maintenance such as tightening frame and bench
screws, adjusting pedals, and inspecting the general condition of action and
case parts. We can discuss repairs to any worn or broken parts and you can decide what
actions to take.
The days of
learning piano service through years of study with a master at a factory are
long past, and there are only three residence schools in North America where
a student can go full time. Most students learn through correspondence.
The Randy Potter
School is different than other schools, which is why I selected it for my
study. It is written like a college course, and in fact several colleges and
licensed apprentice training programs have used it. Written course material
is integrated with many auxiliary textbooks, manufacturers’ technical
training manuals and Training DVD’s teaching in depth aspects of tuning,
repairing and regulating pianos. The course material will take a dedicated
student about a year to complete. The available hands-on seminars help
technicians put what’s in their head into practice.
