About PTA

We strive to create the best courses with the best instructors, content and technology the industry has to offer! Our team is made up of world renowned technicians and educators who want to see this trade passed down the right way which is why the Piano Technician Academy is the most referred piano tuning school by piano technicians in the world. 

Our Instructors

Our instructors make up some of the most well-known technicians/instructors in the piano industry and have had years of experience teaching piano technology to students of all skill levels. We are all proud members of the Piano Technicians Guild and have a strong desire to see our trade passed on the “right way.” Our students enjoy constant communication with our instructors via email and phone and have full access to them even after they graduate.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide in-depth training on piano technology to studentsno matter where they are. Over the years,we’ve had students in over 50 countries, and we’ve helped people develop a trade they will keep with them for the rest of their lives. PTA was designed to help people achieve their goals of working a job they love.

ThePiano Technician Academy was created in 2009, and it’s the first online piano tuning school in the world.Our courses use modern-day teaching techniques, including graphics exercises, and over 80 high-def videos, allowing students to fully grasp the material. Having an e-learning specialist on staff has allowed us to develop a learning program that rivals those of most universities. Piano technology is a very difficult trade to teach over the Internet or through a correspondence program, but by using the latest in e-learning technology, we can walk our students through the material in a way that’s never been done before.


The Piano Technician Academy has graduates in over eleven countries and four continents. With an average of 350 students a year we have grown into a world redounded piano tuning training program. Our certified piano technicians (CPTs) are allowed to use our logo on their business cards, websites and marketing material showing that they completed a course in Piano Tuning and Repair at The Piano Technician Academy.


Because we are a completely online school we are able to cut our overhead by not having to pay for printed material and shipping costs. Our students take their quizzes online, which are instantly graded by the system. While most correspondence schools cost hundreds of dollars more and are not online at all, our course is less expensive and covers more material in a modern way.

Piano Technicians Guild

When designing the course we made a point to cover all the required info technicians are tested on when taking the Registered Piano Technician (RPT) exam given by the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG).  We at PTA believe all technicians should join their local chapter of the Piano Technicians Guild to develop a strong, local support system and continue their education as a professional piano technician.
