Overview

While production and accumulation of a piano have been increasing, there has been
little, if any, effort made to provide tuners to look after the needs of this
ever-increasing number of instruments, no provision for the thorough instruction
of the learner of Piano Tuning, outside the walls of the factories, and of the few
musical colleges where the art is taught.

Doubtless there are many persons who are by nature well adapted to this
agreeable and profitable occupation—persons who would make earnest effort to
acquire the necessary skill and its honest application if they had a favorable
opportunity. Musical colleges in which tuning is taught are few and far between; piano factories
are built for the purpose of producing pianos and not tuners, for mechanics
and laborers and not for teachers and pupils; furthermore, very little fine tuning is done in the factory; rough tuning is the bulk of the work there, and a long
apprenticeship in the factory, with its meager advantages, is rarely sufficient to
meet the demands of the would-be-thorough tuner.
This may account, in part, for the fact that many who are incompetent are
following this profession, and that there is an increasing demand for tuners of skill.
