is for the few who decide to try to learn to tune a piano closer to a professional
level. If you follow these instructions, and if you practice on many pianos,
you will be able to tune a piano professionally with time. You will need an experienced
tuner to mentor you along the way. It is very helpful to find such a gentleman
if you can. But, if all the tuners in your area refuse to help you, then
just follow the instructions, and keep at it until you have the skill mastered.
probably get a fair tuning by tuning your piano with a Korg A-120 Tuning
Meter, or you can use a chromatic set of tuning forks. Both can be
ordered from the Parts Catalog. The forks are
hard to use though unless you have a third arm :-)
you go on to try to learn this art form, that is, if you are not really interested
in piano tuning as a trade, please consider using Robert Scott's TuneLab
97--3.07 tuning shareware. It is only $34 to register, and you get
the full program here in order to try out. I have used it, and I find it
a fantastic program for the price. Other programs like it are going for
$700. It is very easy to use TuneLab 97 to do a touch up or even
a rather serious tuning. You will need a laptop PC though, or a computer
placed near your piano.

CREE FISCHER-- Piano Tuning Instruction
Book on this CD
Be careful not to get bogged down in the
minutia of this book. It was written long ago in the format of Victorian picky
detail. But, Fischer has been highly respected over the years.
Musselwhite has one of the most useful sites I have seen yet. He is a technician
with Robert Lowery's Piano Experts,
but his personal site is extremely helpful to a piano owner, and he also includes
information and sells a book set that will help the beginning piano technician.
