Piano Technology – Enrol now

The opportunity to train formally as a piano technician has been made available again through the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2009.

The skills necessary for tuning and servicing the piano are notoriously difficult to teach and there have been no formal courses in piano technology in Australia since 1993 when courses ran at the Conservatorium in Sydney and in Melbourne. Fortunately the opportunity to train formally as a piano technician has been made available again when the Sydney Conservatorium of Music will have an intake of students in 2009.

The Licenciate in Piano Technology is an intense 52-week course taught at the Conservatorium and is followed by a 12-week internship to help apply the knowledge learned during the year.

There is a growing need for qualified piano technicians around Australia, so if you are thinking of a career change, piano technology holds plenty of great career prospects including the chance to run your own business. Qualities needed in becoming a technician include tenacity, stamina, good people skills and fine motor-skills. You don’t even need to be musically inclined to become a great piano technician (although it might help).
