Piano tuning is a skill that is both vital and rare in the field of musical performance. Students enrolled in the Music Performance degree program who want to add a profitable skill to their arsenal should look no further. This program will teach you the ins and outs of the piano and prepare you for a career in piano tuning and maintenance. Not only will students learn tuning and maintenance in a hands-on way in the classroom, but they will also have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and work with professionals at piano stores and local concert halls, learning how to tune and maintain instruments of various qualities and ages. Students will work with both upright and grand pianos and will eventually complete certification with the Piano Technician’s Guild. Students must already be enrolled in the Music Performance degree program to enroll in this certificate program.
