An intensive three-day skills-based course, Grand Action Regulation in 37 Steps will help you polish your skills in grand regulation and ensure that your clients' grand pianos are performing at full potential. Based on curriculum from Yamaha's "The Little Red Schoolhouse," participants will benefit from personal pianos, small group instruction and individual feedback. You will learn how to increase action control, even movement, maximize the dynamic range and achieve the fastest speed of repetition available. The course includes detailed demonstration and explanation of the 37 steps method of regulating a grand piano alternating with guided practice on each step. Successful participants will pass a final regulation skills assessment at the end of class.
