Rapid Voicer Online Course

NEW ONLINE COURSE! 

This voicing method was designed by my mentor Dr. Jack P. Hamilton. The Rapid Voicer System will revolutionize the way you approach voicing. This amazing new system makes service voicing attainable for all technicians. It is the only voicing method ever developed which contains precise and controlled elements for voicing a piano up or down quickly.

Are you willing to try it?

I have received the tools with many thanks. I have already voiced my piano at home a 25 years old Korean Piano who’s hammer heads became hard like a rock with an extremely bright sound. Refacing in the past did not help much. The result : Pure Magic! The tone of the piano came back with only one incision. And the most important it is so easy to do with the rapid tools.

A note from Jack:

I have collected this information over the past 30 years and have used it at our piano store to voice thousands of pianos. At our store, these techniques have successfully assisted in the sale of millions of dollars of pianos from coast to coast. I personally know other great technicians who have tested the Rapid Voicer tools and I have received wonderful testimonials from them about their success. They report that it is the quickest way they have ever been able to perform voicing and produce exactly what they want every time. This system provides you with the tools and methods to perform extremely accurate voicing in a fraction of the time required by other methods and it works wonderfully on any type or brand of piano. Once you learn, test, and embrace this method you will have an immediate advantage in the field of piano technology and voicing.

What Technicians say about the RAPID VOICER

…I placed the keyframe back in the piano, took a deep breath, and began to play. I found myself saying, “Oh, my.., oh my…” The sweetness had returned to my piano, without loss of power!

Dear Eric,

I received the Rapid Voicer kit yesterday and was anxious to try it out on my 6’1” grand. After about 13 years of regular playing, it had become very bright. As a result, I found myself playing less often! I watched your excellent video and read over the text that you provided.  The instructions were very clearly presented and reassuring, as I have always approached the strike point with extreme caution.

After completing the initial voicing of the entire piano, I placed the keyframe back in the piano, took a deep breath, and began to play. I found myself saying, “Oh, my.., oh my…” The sweetness had returned to my piano, without loss of power (just as you promised). After a few touch-ups with the pick tool, I gave it a complete test of just about every type of music I could. Bach was clean and mellow, without any loss of clarity. Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude”, with all of the repeated notes, was a joy to play. (In fact, it was the piece which frustrated me enough to seek out new voicing methods). I played pieces with lots of inner voices to see if they would still project appropriately – they did!! I majored in piano and know what the instrument should be able to do – I was ecstatic, to say the least!

Eric, I don’t mean to go on so long, but I am so thankful that I stumbled upon your tools and technique. It is, indeed, a fast and precise way to effect voicing without dealing with traditional voicing needles. I have often been frustrated with them and found it very time consuming and somewhat of a gamble to get things just right and not go too far in any of the voicing areas.

I have read some skeptical reviews of your technique on various piano bulletin boards online. All I can say is, they need to try it before they attempt to make criticisms! Every new idea is met with resistance from the “old guard” and this is no different. Where would piano technology be if we never innovated? (I also noted that none of the critics had actually tried your method, interesting…..

In my 30 years of piano work, I’m excited to have found such a “quickly and dirty” (to quote the skeptics on the Piano World website) method to address voicing. (They should refer to it as “quick and sweet”!) I wish you all the best in promoting your concept with technicians. Do not let them dissuade you, but rather challenge them to try it !! What do they have to lose, really? They can always go back to what they have been doing if they don’t like it…chopping away at hammers with needles like a lumberjack.

My next purchase will be your new tuning hammer. I think I will put it on my Christmas list! Keep innovating, Eric, and Godspeed, my friend.

Piano Tuning Course The Apex Way

NEW!  Exciting Online course with essays, videos, downloads, whiteboard theory lessons, and the roadmap to becoming a really good piano tuner!  Learn to tune a piano with an Electronic Tuning Device (ETD) Exactly the way professional piano tuners do it every day all over the world.  The majority of this course is taught on the Sanderson Accutuner.  You can also use the less expensive TuneLab app.  

THIS IS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE COURSE AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR LEARNING TO TUNE WITH AN ETD AND LEARNING THE TIPS AND TRICKS TO BECOME A COMPETENT PIANO TUNER.  To put it bluntly, there is no easier and faster way to become a competent piano tuner. 

Your enrollment comes with a 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. 

Demonstrations on GRAND and UPRIGHT pianos throughout the course.  All techniques can also be used to tune spinet pianos. 

Do you want to learn to tune pianos? Do you want the road map to piano tuning success.  Do you need to shave years off the learning process and start making money as a piano tuner in a few months?  Yes!  I can help you do that.  I am going to teach you for day one how to tune a piano using an ETD (electronic tuning device).  I am going to show you the way… behind the curtain, the secrets, the fundamentals that will set you on a path to becoming the best piano tuner and technician in your city.  Many people start learning with other systems and give up before they have success.  They do that because it’s hard and they have the wrong road map.  It can become somewhat impossible to become great tuner/technician if you learn the wrong way or waste years on the wrong approach.  I started making money tuning after just 6 months of studying part time with my 2 piano tuning mentors.  In this course, I will show you everything I learned and help you get started fast.  I’ve watched many people start leaning piano tuning and quit because they were being guided down a silly path full of theory and outdated techniques.  I’m going to show you how the best and most successful modern piano tuners work and tune and thrive in this industry.  You will be able to tune a whole piano with confidence when you complete this course and the exercises I provide.

  1. What you will accomplish – YOU WILL LEARN TO TUNE AND MASTER TENSION AND TUNING OF THE PIANO
  2. How long will it take – 1 Month-6 Months – You should get though the theory and the video material in less than a month and after 3-6 months of consistent practice, you should feel very confident. 
  3. How to practice – learn single string light stopping, then learn to tune and clean unisons , then tune a whole piano multiple times practicing all of the techniques over and over!
  4. How many pianos should you tune before you start making money?  50, 100, 300, 1,000?  I can tell you my students can start within a month of real serious dedicated practice.  The key is the jump in… you won’t learn it all on a single piano in your home.  You need to encounter a lot of pianos and a lot of scenarios.  This is where you will get really good fast.  I show you how to get the confidence you need to start tuning for pay fast!
  5. Partner with a technician… someone you trust to help you.  If you can’t find someone in your city, I can be your mentor through the Apex Patreon. 
  6. The APTN offers resources to help you start your business and grow as a piano technician.  This is the starting point and soon, you can become a Certified Piano Technician right here with the APTN! 

Once you enroll: 

It is critical that you start with the hands on sections as soon as possible.  Learning the physical aspect of tuning will take the most time.  The theory and head knowledge will sink in over time as you learn.  Watch the videos on theory several times until you begin to really understand what I am talking about.  No part of this course if fluff.  Every part is critical and I will say it in the least words possible and in a way you can soak it in.  The concepts I will teach you will lay the foundation for your success.  After you have tuned 1,000 pianos, you will still go back to these core concepts to guide your decisions in the field.  These concepts will separate you from other piano tuners and give you the edge you need to thrive in any situation. 
When you start the hands on part of this course follow this order. 

  1. Learn to tune single strings and stop the lights on the tuning device.
  2. Train your ear to tune unisons, getting familiar with the feel of the tuning hammer.  Learn to hear and clean unisions until you get really comfortable. 
  3. Start with your ETD and tune a whole piano from A0 – A88 and then clean it up.  Repeat this over and over until your pianos start sounding really good.
