Why Aren’t Manufacturers or Dealers Doing What You Do For Their Pianos?
There are two simple answers to that question. The first is economics. The kind of time it takes to do what I do is not practical for a manufacturer or dealer to put into an individual instrument, especially when they are trying to manufacture or sell hundreds or thousands of instruments a year. Such advanced work would severely cut into the profit margin and require the piano to sell for MUCH more money than it typically does. Additionally, the manufacturers and dealers do not feel that most players know, or care about, the difference between a poor playing instrument and an optimized one. If you doubt this is true, consider the following. Steinway, the world’s most famous piano manufacturer, has a separate division devoted ONLY to prepping their pianos for concert pianists or other very high level players. In this division, they employ a high level technician that does nothing but this work. He does not touch any of the other instruments going out the door. As a player myself, I find this very concerning. If you have a child, or adult, that is learning to play, and you put them on a piano that fights them at every turn…….whether that be with an unresponsive, hard to control keyboard or a twangy, dissonant sounding tone and volume level, I believe that you are putting them at a distinct disadvantage right from the start. That student will have less motivation to practice and spend the required time necessary to improve on that instrument because they are not associating a pleasant experience with their practice time. Remember, the whole idea of playing music is to have a non-verbal means of expressing both your own emotions and those of the composer. It is EXTREMELY difficult to do that on an uncooperative instrument. This is why EVERYONE can benefit from my “PIANO OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM”. Lastly, even if these manufacturers and dealers had the will to do it, they don’t have the formula that I have spent years creating. I have done extensive work over the years for players of ALL skill levels and economic means, from Concert Pianists, music teachers and students to just plain music lovers who play for their own enjoyment. The instruments I have improved range from $200,000.00 Bosendorfer concert grands to grandma’s treasured instrument. Simply put, if you care about having a wonderful musical experience EVERY time you sit down at your piano, you will benefit from the “PIANO OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM”
