4. NEW BOOK

THE WONDERS OF THE PIANO
By CATHERINE C. BIELEFELDT

This is the best book I have seen on the piano as an instrument, how it is manufactured, and the history of the piano. Catherine Beilefeldt is deeply involved in a piano restoration company south of Chicago, and the Piano Technician's Guild maintains very close contact with her. This book is used by Guild members as a text book in training curricula. Catherine held three positions with Steinway in her earlier days, and Steinway made a great resource contribution to this book.

THE KURK COMBO
PIANO TUNING BOOK AND CD
FOR BEGINNERS --
By Dennis E. Kurk PTG



Dennis Kurk has many years of experience tuning pianos and restoring them.
He is a member of the Piano Technician's Guild of America also. His book,
Piano Tuning for Beginners, is 18 pages long, 8-1/2 by 11 inches. There are
several photographs.

Topics covered are:

Why Pianos Go Out of Tune
Preparing to Tune
Tuning a Unison
Tuning an Octave
Tuning the Notes Within an Octave
Designating Intervals Within the Octave
Setting the Temperament
Varieties of Tuning Methods
Problems of Piano Pitch
False Beats
Fine Tuning
Tuning Tips

THE CD OF PIANO TEMPERAMENT SOUND

We are not offering the book without the CD. This is because the CD is so essential to succeed
in learning to tune. Books on tuning lack one very important thing, and that is sound. This
CD by Dennis Kurk is copyrighted and is done by him to add the missing dimension, beats and
sounds as they actually occur during a tuning. The tape is keyed verbally to the book very well,
and the sound quality is exceptional. This combo teaching tool will also add greatly to the
tuning lessons on my CD.
