We're glad to see that you're
interested in learning the trade, and think that it's a
great idea to ask first. -I'll do my best to give a good
overview of our profession.
We are a third-generation family company, specializing in
custom restoration of rare and antique pianos. We also have
nationwide and local piano moving services, and a local
client base of over 15,000 rsidential and commercial
clients, including the Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room,
Pierre Hotels, Liconln Center Opera, and many more esteemed
The art of piano restoration is not the easiest to learn,
but it's always been fascinating to me and never gets
boring. Each piano brings something new to the table,
especially when we restore antique pianos, with various
tricks in design and construction.
There is very little formal education in this field, and the
few official places that promise training in the field are
limiting, and by nature can not offer a complete course of
training, and most of the time leave the student with little
more than a good overview of the field.
We believe that in order to be a good piano tuner, you must
also be a good technician, have very good knowledge of the
structure and design of a piano, and be able to diagnose
problems with the piano, not to mention be able to
communicate with musicians, and custom-tailor the sound and
tuning of the piano to the performer's preferences. Piano
tuning is learned as the last part of the process.
-Most people who call us for a piano tuning, don't fully
understand the meaning of tuning, assuming that tuning will
fix the sticking keys, the buzzing note and perhaps the
scratch or chip in the body as well. Customers are almost
always surprised to learn that tuning is pulling strings
into their proper pitch, and has nothing to do with any
mechanical adjustments, and certainly no cosmetic or
It's important to note that some working piano tuners don't
make a decent living, but it's not because there's no work,
it's because their training only gave them a narrow
specialization and piano tuners only tune pianos and don't
do repair work, cannot diagnose a problem with the sound,
and will many times tune a piano that is not supposed to be
tuned in the first place. Pedal repair specialists only fix
pedals, soundboard restorers only fix soundboards - they
don't even play the piano and will not be able to function
outside their realm. -that is the problem with the average
Most antique piano manufacturers are no longer in business,
and new pianos are made of worse materials and craftsmanship
each year. It's surprising and sad to see the degradation.
Pianos are made with plywood soundboards that don't carry a
good tone, plastic parts in the mechanism which make it
disposable in a decade, and fiberglass and press-wood
instead of hardwood on the body. All these factors weaken
the piano and at the same time drive up the value and demand
of antique pianos. Since old manufacturers are not around,
parts are not available. We replicate mechanism parts and
piano body parts as well to exact specifications. Our
trained technicians are able to do the same, and it's rather
If learned the right way, you should have a working concept
of what factors affect the longevity of the instrument, how
a piano is transported, the order of how to take apart a
piano, how the sound is made, the structure, the principle
of the piano action, regulation and adjustment parameters,
restoration of the piano finish, and field experience,
leaving no mysteries. A good specialist should be able to
sit down at the piano, play a tune, and tell the customer
exactly what's wrong with the piano, and then show and
explain the problem to the customer.
We have a piano restoration training program with
apprentices in training, you can speak with some if you
like. They work on real projects with real deadlines and
gain experience in all parts of piano restoration and field
experience. After the completion of our program, our
technicians are certified, and we also provide all necessary
tools for repair, regulation and tuning, as well as
employment in the geographical area they choose. We are a
nationwide company, restoring antique pianos from all over
the country, and we have customers anywhere they would like
to live. -Most important of all, we're building a qualified,
independent workforce whom we can trust with priceless
heirloom pianos and our good name.
Please give us a call at (800)33-TUNER at any time for a
consultation or to schedule an appointment at our
restoration facility for a tour.
Thank you again for your inquiry. We hope you decide to join
our trade, which badly needs the addition of more skilled
professionals and is overwhelmed by amateurs.
