Have you always wondered how a piano works? Do you want to know more about piano maintenance and care? Are you interested in piano technology as a career?

Whether you are a performer or a music teacher looking to better understand your instrument, dip your toe into an exciting and unusual career with our one-week Introduction to Piano Technology class.

This hands-on course provides a glimpse into the various tasks that a piano technician might encounter. Topics include nomenclature, basics of tuning and regulation, and an overview of common repairs. You’ll work with music wire and try many of these tasks out for yourself. Answer your questions about the logistics and basics of a career path, or just learn how to better advocate for your instrument.
