    Me todayI am Peter Summers, an independent piano tuner who has tuned thousands of pianos for amateur and professional performers over the past 40 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.

    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. My course includes two full sections on subjects crucial to building a freelance business, based on my 40 years of working experience -- tips that you won't find elsewhere.

    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.
