fortepiano maintenance workshop

July 29 - July 31

This three day long class, taught by R J Regier, will offer practical, hands-on introduction the the care and maintenance of the wood-framed Viennese fortepiano. Subjects will include how to handle the seemingly delicate parts of a Viennese Prellmechanik without trepidation or damage; how to regulate and repair the action, keyboard, and dampers for best performance; and to practice tuning an instrument much more lightly strung than today’s piano.  Many steps are familiar, however, a few are unique to the Prellmechanic with no counterpart in the modern piano. 5-octave and 6 1/2-octave fortepianos will be available for the class.

This class is intended for the fortepiano technician (or fortepiano owner) who wants to develop their skills.
