We get to stay at the historic Cliff House!
The atmosphere evokes an opulence of Victorian romance
that dates back nearly 150 years.

Our convention has been carefully planned to provide outstanding tuning/repair classes for us, as well as equally entertaining activities for our significant others during class times.

We’ll all be able to come together for shared experiences with
our friends and family members outside of instruction time.
(Pikes Peak via Cog Railway followed by the melodrama.)

Registration deadline is June 29th.


Piano classes we will attend have a wide range of practical topics,
led by top technicians including:

Rick Vökt – Repairing chipped and missing ivory keys
Richard Barber – False Beats
John Parham – Things all things piano technicians should know
(This will be done via teleconference, class also demonstrates using realtime video/audio to have instructors teach at your location without the cost of travel)
Kevin Stock – 1 person piano moving
Jim Fariss – What to do with loose tuning pins
Even more to be announced!!!
