    Piano tuning is a manual skill, not a musical one. Anyone with normal hearing and a desire to learn can master this trade using my easy-to-follow directions. No enrollment required, and none of the confusing, abstract acoustic theory of many piano tuning courses that can so often discourage beginners. My tuning course teaches an easy, effective and time proven step-by-step tuning method with the focus always on practical skills -- skills you can use to start earning income quickly.

  • The history of pianos.
  • How pianos are constructed.
  • The various styles of pianos.
  • How to maintain a piano.
  • Hearing the "Beat," the essence of piano tuning.
  • Tuning unison strings, octaves and intervals.
  • Building the scale (temperament, tuners call it).
  • Tuning the treble and bass notes.
  • Raising and lowering pitch.
  • Using electronic tuners and other tuning aids.
  • Regulating the piano action and pedals.
  • Common action, keyboard and bridge repairs.
  • Where to order parts and supplies wholesale.
  • How to get started in business.
  • Building a customer file.
  • Types of advertising that do and don't work.
  • Dealing with music stores, and more.
  • Me todayI am Peter Summers, an independent piano tuner who has tuned thousands of pianos for both amateur and professional performers over the past 32 years. For 10 years I was the official piano tuner for the annual Kansas City Jazz And Blues Festival which featured many big name bands and pianists. I also did in-store tunings for one of the Midwest's largest piano shops. Read more or call (816) 214-5356. If I'm not in, leave your number. I do return calls.

    Learn from my experience. When you buy my piano tuning course you're buying the experience and service of a real piano tuner who is accessible to answer your questions, anytime you need for as long as you need. There is no time limit to complete the course. Work on your own schedule and learn on any piano you have available, vertical or grand. There is no mystery to piano tuning. Regular practice is the key.

    Success as a piano tuner is not just learning - it's earning. Most piano tuners nowadays learn by mail order courses, according to Keyboard Magazine. But success is not just a matter of learning the skills to tune a piano. Courses that neglect practical business advice are only half complete. Just as important are the skills you need to find clients and begin earning income.tuning book My course includes two full sections on subjects crucial to building a freelance business, based on my 32 years of working experience -- tips that you won't find elsewhere -- PLUS a copy of the respected Willem Blees book "The Business Of Piano Tuning." Blees, a Registered Piano Technician, has built businesses in three cities and owned and sold a well-known rebuilding shop and store. He shares his 30+ years experience with insights on marketing, managing, promoting, buying and selling a piano service business.

    Setting the piano temperamentPrices (and tuning fees) can only go up. So why wait? Get started today training for a profitable and independent new career in piano tuning and repair and begin earning income for yourself and your family. It will never be easier or less expensive. DVD video examples, multiple tuning exercises and review questions will quickly develop your tuning skills. Complicated acoustic theory is consigned to the Appendix section so you can focus on what you need to do and how to do it. PLUS 26 top quality tools (the wholesale price of the tools alone accounts for much of the fee) and my personal support for as long as you need.
