Had a great time at the joint UT Valley/SL Valley PTG meeting tonight at Baldassin’s Piano. Guest speaker Dan McElrath presented on the future of piano technology. It was exciting in many ways, especially hearing him say that in spite of all the contributions technology plays, and will continue to play, in the piano world there will always be a need for concert level technicians. That’s my goal and my direction.
He’s also a performer as well as a technician, which combination I find to be very cool.
Me and Dan:
And of course me and Carl!
Fun night with the techs!
I’m gonna take the CTE test (to become a Certified Tuner Examiner). Made that determination tonight as well.
