The current slate of officers has agreed to continue serving for a one-year term: yours truly as President, Chris Storch as Vice President, Tony Malionek as Treasurer. Also, Tom Driscoll is returning as Technical Program Coordinator. There is still an opening for Secretary, so we are looking for someone to please volunteer....please contact me for details.

The Practical Road Warrior, Part II
Boaz Kirschenbaum, RPT and Fredrick Mudge, RPT
In this class, we will share our experiences as concert technicians, and provide practical tips to make you a more efficient field technician. We will demonstrate techniques for advanced tuning, how to finesse your octave stretch, tune & voice pianos quickly in a time crunch, and with time permitting, how to diagnose, repair & regulate pedals quickly.
Boaz Kirschenbaum has been a piano tuner for 18 years. After graduating from NBSS he worked for Steinway C&A in NY and also trained at Steinway Hamburg. He now works full-time for Fred Mudge.
Fred Mudge has been a concert technician for over 25 years. He initially learned to tune at the Berklee College of Music. He later continued his technical training at Yamaha and at Steinway NY. Whether it’s on the concert stage or on a cruise ship, Fred continues to operate a busy practice providing complete piano technical service.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
