Disaster Assistance

Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every person affected by recent disasters. 
There are many organizations, both national and local, which are providing food, water, shelter, and clothing for the survivors. We encourage you to support these efforts.
However, some of our members in the affected areas may need assistance beyond the basic necessities — this is where the Piano Technicians Guild Foundation comes in. If you, or another PTG member you know, has been affected by recent disasters, please contact the PTG Home Office at 913-432-9975 or contact@ptgf.org.

Demystifying the Tuning Exam = More RPTs

Paul Brown, RPT
PTG President

One of the major concerns from our membership is how to create more RPTs. There is a lot of misinformation out there with regard to the tuning exam being too difficult. Potential examinees should put aside comments made by others about the difficulty of the exam and decide for themselves. What is difficult for one person may be much easier for another. Perhaps my own experience will prove helpful.
