What Should I Do?

Me questioning_clipped_rev_1

Can you help me decide?

As an entrepreneur, there is a new strategy for producing products and services for customers. It is a customer driven approach that solves your customer’s problems.

I will be teaching two classes at the Piano Technicians Guild national convention in July and I will have a table set up in the exhibits area. I hope to be able to provide products and services of interest to piano technicians and piano technology students.

But I do not have much time left. That’s where you come in. I need to know what piano tuning and repair products and services you find valuable.

Please fill out this form and click the send button at the bottom. Your help will greatly help me to help others learn more about piano tuning and repair.

Thank you,

You would help me greatly by simply listening to these pair of octaves and selecting which one sounds the best in each pair.

Then simply click the submit button at the bottom.

Thank you for your help.

The Studio is Finished!

Getting into this type of business (online learning) I was so excited that I may have jumped the gun. I’m happy with my content, by my studio was…well let’s just say not the best.

I have not made much money teaching, so renovating was out of the question. Instead I just hung curtains. The black gives it a nice look and I can’t wait to start recording. Also I have a student coming tomorrow so that should be good.

Here are the before and after pics. I just added some bars and bought some cheap material and put grommets in them, hung them and cut them to size. I also strung some piano wire for the work bench curtains. Worked much better.

NEW COURSE STRUCTURE

I have changed my course structure because of the improved efficiency of offering more free content online.

Now you are able to learn to tune pianos in less time for less money.

Also, these classes can be run as private classes for the same price.

Contact me today if you are ready to start learning.
