The Advanced Piano Technology at the North Bennet Street School is a nine-month program devoted to comprehensive piano care. The first part of every week day is a discussion forum where we study a variety of topics including advanced tuning and regulation practices, resolution of service problems that occur in the field, assessments/appraisals, estimates, voicing, and business practice to name a few. The latter half of the day is allocated to piano rebuilding. We work in groups of two. Each group is assigned a grand piano to restore over the course of the program. In my case, Brian Turano, my classmate, and I restored a Steinway B from 1886. We took extensive measurements, studied the design of the instrument, and executed an accurate rebuild. The following is a sample of the process.
