    I have tried to contact Steinway regarding their Factory Seminars, but my communications seem to be going into deaf ears.
    I have realized New York has cancelled a lot of their training seminars over the past couple years, but it would seem to me that there should be a backlog of techs who still want to make that training a priority now that society is back to normal.  Maybe Steinway & New York are NOT open... I don't know.  But it would be nice to communicate that.
    I have tried multiple people at Steinway, but I can't seem to get any responses back.  This attempt at communicating as been 18 months long.  Nothing.
    My last attempt was 3 weeks ago.

    Who's your contact at Steinway that will know the answer?

    Thanks for the responses.

    I emailed Kent last year in April for 2021 classes.
    He said nothing is planned.

    I emailed him again in Dec 2021 about 2022 classes.
    He hasn't replied.

    Just in case, I just emailed again today.

    Dave,
    In the past, being referred by a local Steinway dealership has been the way technicians have attended classes. You might try affiliating with your local dealer.

    My suggestion is to have the PTG home office contact Steinway on behalf of all PTG members and request information concerning when or if Steinway will be conducting training seminars. I would further suggest the office inquire if Steinway would be interested in conducting training at the PTG home office.
