Rick Baldassin’s book On Pitch has been described as “essential,” “groundbreaking,” “a modern classic in the field of piano technology” that “belongs in the library of every serious piano technician.” It has been called “the best, most concise, and most thorough explanation of the relationships of intervals and partial interactions in our field.” Now, its accompanying DVDs have been acclaimed as “an unprecedented tool to propel the next generation of fine tuners.”
Join us in this new all-day course that will cover it all, from how to tune octaves, to when to stretch those octaves, how much to stretch them, and what makes that stretch necessary. This class will present a combination of academic theory and practical application with new and exciting insights from the On Pitch DVDs, featuring live demonstrations together with video supplements that include audio filters to guarantee that you hear the beats!
Whether you tune by ear, with an electronic aid, or a combination of the two, this class will expand your knowledge of aural and electronic tuning and enrich your understanding of your craft. Class participants will also be the first to receive the soon-to-be-released On Pitch Companionship DVD Volume V: The Baldassin-Sanderson Temperament free with their registration for the course.
