You can learn to tune your own piano, even if you have no tuning experience or musical ability! All you need is the desire and this booklet and its tuning tool kit.

Piano tuning is not rocket science and it is NOT a musical skill. It is a mechanical skill based on an easy scientific principle anyone can learn. It does not require a perfect ear or a college degree or years of study. What is needed is normal hearing, time to practice and this entertaining and easy to follow illustrated booklet, complete with tuning tools and CD with sound examples and tuning charts!

As a professional piano tuner for the past 35 years, I know how quickly even the best pianos can go out of tune -- I've counted on that phenomena to earn my living. I also know how expensive professional piano service can be. That's why I've written this fully illustrated tuning manual that reveals the secrets piano tuners don't want you to know -- a practical manual that takes the mystery out of piano tuning and shows you step-by-step how to maintain your piano in top tuning condition.  No confusing and unnecessary theory.

  • Why pianos keep losing their tuning, sometimes within just a few days or weeks.
  • How to hear the "Beat" -- the sound piano tuners use to guide them in creating perfect resonance.
  • How to easily correct "twanging" notes that can ruin your piano practice.

  • How to correct sour octaves anywhere on the keyboard.
  • Easy method of Tuning tempered fifths and other intervals by ear.
