No! It's hard work. Having said that, our course is rather easy to follow. It's somewhat like learning to play the piano. You can take piano lessons, but unless you practice, you're journey to playing the piano might not go as you would like.. You learn to play the piano - by playing the piano. You learn to tune pianos - by tuning pianos. Why choose the Butler School?
Piano Technology is a good profession for those who like to work independently. Piano technicians report a high level of job satisfaction, a low stress level, and a serious commitment to continued personal and professional growth.
