Tips For Getting Started Your piano tuner has just advised you that major work needs to be done to your grand piano to restore it to its original performance level. You are now faced with the questions so many people ask . . .how much works needs to be done, where do I go for this kind of work, who do I trust, who has the skill level to do the work properly? Because there is limited information available to consumers, here are some tips to help you with those questions: 1) Look for a rebuilding shop with experience and technicians who are RPTs (registered piano tuners have met the standards set by the piano guild). Ask other piano technicians their opinion of the technical work done by the shop you are considering. 2) Have your piano evaluated and have them provide you with an estimate of the work needed. Ask questions and learn what work is needed to bring your piano to its full potential. 3) Determine if the shop is known for their cabinet refinishing, superior technical restoration or both. Which aspect is important to you? 4) Review their references, there should be a significant list. 5) If Universities are listed, know that they have researched thoroughly! They are a demanding clientele with high expectations as they have to answer for the tax dollars they are spending. 6) Play several pianos rebuilt by the shop so you can assess their performance level. 7) Visit the restoration shop for a better understanding of how they operate.
