Before earning the title of registered piano technician, one must study the craft for years and pass a rigorous series of exams. At Piano Tuners Montreal, a seasoned registered technician keeps instruments playing with perfect pitch and tone. By a series of careful adjustments on strings, the technician assuages the effects of harsh changes in weather or wear and tear, adjusting keys with a tuning fork and a well-trained ear.

In 2006, it dawned on Terry Moshenberg and Topher Stott that there was a lack of creative outlets for musical adults. Those hoping to hone their skills or simply jam out often had a hard time finding likeminded people. A year later, Terry and Topher sought out to solve this problem by starting League of Rock, which has since revealed what they refer to as the "hidden musical population." During workshops and team-building exercises held at corporations and various venues, professional musicians invite grownups to unleash their inner rock star by helping them master their chosen instrument, assigning them band mates, and getting them up on stage with a professional rock band. In corporate music leagues, clients use LOR as a resource to put on shows for recruiting purposes and raising money for charity.
Starting at age 2, children at Kanata Music Centre pick up music through immersion in a joyful world of rhythm, games, melody, and movement. Classes based on the Yamaha Music Education System begin with rhythm instruments and exercises that cultivate the powers of attention that students will need to develop an accurate ear and sound practice habits. As soon as preschoolers' motor skills have caught up with their inborn appreciation of Mozart, they'll be introduced to keyboard instruments and begin to make music with others. By the time they're in early elementary school, students are ready to progress to ensemble playing, music theory, and the composition skills needed to persuasively serenade college admissions boards.
The changing of the seasons are harsh on a piano. The shifting heat and humidity subtly warp the wood and piles of falling leaves muffle the strings. To combat nature's adjustments, Piano Tuners Ottawa travels to homes and venues, returning pianos to playing shape. The technicians, registered with the Piano Technicians Guild, know the instrument both from the angles of a mechanic and a performer. They make fine adjustments to the strings with an electric tuning device or just a tuning fork and their ear, returning the instruments to harmony. The shop also offers repair services, refining the piano’s sound, restoring neglected models, and putting them back together after dropping them on cartoon characters.
