Satisfied Piano Tuning School Students and Graduates

The American School of Piano Tuning has been training piano tuners and enabling graduates to start a successful businesses for many years. Here are some articles and comments of statisfied customers.


"The course was very friendly and fluid, leading me through the lessons step by step, each lesson building upon the previous lessons. The fantastic aspects of the whole process were the knowledge and tips provided from the frist few lessons. They allowed me to begin tuning pianos and receiving payments for my efforts ... which allowed me to more easily afford the remainder of the courses! I've been able to tune and care for numerous pianos over the duration of this class; it has more than paid for itself. I love what I'm doing!" - P. Malcolm Jarrell

"I tuned and repaired pianos for the next 22 years, averaging about 4 pianos a week. By the year 2002, I had tuned over 4,000 pianos, working just 6 hours per week! Over the years, I ended up turning the $1,000 that I spent on learning the skill of piano tuning, into over $300,000. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have learned a skill that opened up a great career. The job has been stress-free, pleasant work for very high pay." - Gabrielle Borgnino

"I removed rust, reset pins, replaced key tops, flanges, springs, felts and punchings, hammer butts, shanks and hammer heads, voiced hammers, shored the bottom so the pedals would work, and tuned it up. I got the poor old piano into working order and even managed to coax a little music out of it." - Diana West

"The correspondence course was easy to understand and affordable. I could make progress at my own rate. I graduated from the School on the date of February 19th, 1969. By choice I decided to let Piano Tuning be a supplement to my teaching." - Joseph Kurz

"You probably like getting letters from students years after graduation from your course. I took your course in 1984 with intentions of being able to keep my piano tuned.

Piano tuning and technology connects one to a very pleasant circle of people. Thank You!" - Desdemona Bregante

"Your lessons are logical and efficient. They were easier to understand than the Chinese piano technical books, even though I did have abit of a language problem. The tools were very high quality. I also liked the promotional materials that will help me advertise and run a business in the future. My 10 exam papers were mailed to you this afternoon. Thank you, Yimin Wang!"

"I have been in the piano tuning and repair business for about 8 years. While people have told me all my life that I have a "really good ear" and that I should consider tuning pianos as a career, I never really seriously considered it. Then one day my sone, who was looking for self employment opportunities, got a mailer for The American School of Piano Tuning. My son wasn't interested, but I was. I ordered the sample lesson, and was immediately hooked. I went through the course over a few months time, got my certificate, and started tuning pianos." - Arlin Hall Piano Tuning

Hi AMSPT/G. Borgnino, I received my tuning certificate from your school a few years ago (2008) and it has been a wonderful experience for me as a piano technician. Thank you! The reason I am contacting you is because I recently launched a piano directory website for professionals in the piano industry to advertise their services for free. I wanted to see if you would be interested in adding my website to your list of "links" and also help get the word out to your new piano technicians that they can get their name listed in their service city for free. My website is www.pianotunersbystate.com. I am very passionate about the piano and I hope my website will come in handy for your associates. Please share your thoughts. Thank you. -Brandon Buchholzer.
I got your course several months ago and took my time learning and studying. I have been SO busy tuning and repairing that I am making more money now than I was in my last job. I was teaching public school and this job took over! There were only three people tuning in my area and two have retired. One of those two gave me his accounts and the other one is referring them to me. I am So busy. Thank you for making a difference in my life that I can help people and be their hero for about six months or so. My tunings HOLD thanks to you. Every time I have called the school you have helped me very patiently I might add. If anyone doubts that this course can help them please have them visit my website that is dedicated to tuning and repairing pianos. I also bought a Peterson ST-490 tuner. Really helped me even though I learned without it FIRST. Thanks again, David C. Anderson www.tunethatpiano.com
I am a 2001 graduate of the American School of Piano Tuning. Although my first several pianos tuned were a nerve-wracking affair, I've since "come-into-my-own" and now tune without after-thought. The ASPT course was exceptional and as a reference has been invaluable, and when I have a question not found in the course manual, a phone call is all it takes for one-on-one help from ASPT. They're so very helpful and friendly. Living in a rural area, being one of three tuners in a 100 mile radius, provides me with as much work as I desire. I teach full-time, and find tuning/repairing a wonderful side business. I'm looking forward to teaching my two children the craft - they'll use it as a part-time job during their college days. Thanks American School of Piano Tuning, you've provided a wonderful addition to our livelihood. Yours truly, Thomas L. Isaacson

"Hi I would like to thank you so much. I received my diploma from your school in 1981 and have had a successful and profitable business ever since. I now work for 3 music stores and 2 school systems.

I was very happy with it and he told me he knew of churches that could use my services. I guess I'm on my way. Thank you very much."
