    Join us TONIGHT for a fantastic Seminar!  As SERVP, my focus, "promoting quality service for the world's pianos," is to provide all technicians the means to learn, achieve, and provide quality service. No one ever knows everything about our profession, yet together we have amazing expertise.  We all benefit when we discover better ways of accomplishing tasks of the trade. This discovery is the purpose of Southeast Seminars.  All technicians will benefit from this presentation and should plan to participate.  It is my privilege to host Southeast Seminars,  bringing these educational opportunities to you, a core function of PTG.

    FYI: Attendance is limited and based on who signs in first, not on registration. Instructors may or may not wish to have their presentation recorded, and I respect their wishes.

    Thursday, October 22nd  - 7 pm Eastern Time

    Voicing Hard Pressed Hammers -  Don Mannino

    Register HERE


    In this seminar, Don demonstrates the techniques needed to get good tone from the really hard hammers that we see in a variety of new pianos today. These hammers are not ideal for creating an expressive tone, but they are not hopeless, either!  Don will discuss various methods of getting the hammers more resilient and musical, using bulk techniques as well as detailed needling techniques to extract the best sound possible from the most stubborn hammers.


     This will be a 3 hour session with a short break.  The session will start at 7 pm Eastern Time. 



     "Good, better, best; never let it rest, 'til the good is better and better best!"

    "Providing quality service for the world's pianos"  As soon as I can get out of the house!

    Hi, George. I just registered, tried the link, they demanded a meeting password.

    How do I get that?


    I know it's early, I thought I'd try the link.
