Welcome to my Piano Blog page.
I haven’t been writing a lot on here that often.

What is an RPT?

What is a Registered Piano Technician (RPT)?

The field of piano technology is an unregulated trade. Therefore the Piano Technicians Guild has set its own standards of quality for piano technicians. The Guild has two types of members: Registered Piano Technicians and Associates. Associate membership is open to all individuals 18 years of age and older with a professional or avocational interest in piano technology. On the other hand, the title of “Registered Piano Technician” must be earned by passing a series of examinations.

The piano is unique among musical instruments because it also serves as fine furniture for the home. In fact, the term “piano finish” has traditionally been used to describe the highest standards in wood finishing. Properly maintaining that fine finish will enhance your home’s decor and preserve the value of your piano.

Keeping your piano clean

Keeping your piano clean:
Many piano owners, especially women, like to polish their furniture, and keep it in good condition.
But what are the correct procedures to clean a piano?

The outside case of the piano is made out of wood. Different kinds of wood. And then layered over with various kinds of finishes.

Mostly it’s useful just to whipe with a damp, soft cloth, Emery, or any soft material you can find.

In some cases though, if it is very durty, it is necessary to use a mild soap-water mixture.
