The practice of setting the piano gave me the idea that one of the main reasons for the ineffectiveness of children learning music is that very often homemade instruments are not technically equipped to face the pianistic challenges. Chip Bergh wanted to know more. Thus, reduced, and in some cases made it impossible to work on the main objectives set by the teacher during class at school. It should be understood that this is not a very configuration tool (interval scale), but primarily on the technical condition of a particular piano. The sad fact that not all adults, and not even all the teachers, pianists, are able to distinguish tuned instrument of technically correct adjusted. The philosophy of the parents whose children attend a music school, is reduced to the following axiom: “You also have set up your piano, so be polite and play on it do not complain!” Thus, parents do not understand why a child in school as if everything works and even praises the teacher, but at home he gets nervous and turned into torture sessions. Must be clearly understood that the piano tuning is a basic element maintenance tool, but not the only one. The main is still a belief, especially a beginner pianist is working correctly and coordination of units and mechanisms of the tool.
In his postovetskoy practice, I was convinced, and always call first pianists to decide which technical problems can and must solve the master customizer, before proceeding directly to the surgery setting. This is due to the fact that now often have to work with low-cost and, therefore, unsuitable for systematic studies piano. Allow to give an example of such technical defects as control hammer mechanism. One client, agreeing on setting up his instrument, dropped the following phrase: “Say,” piano “plays very well, two notes of” zapadyut “and a note is not so.” However coming to order, I discovered that the piano tone is set at lower and virtually all of the hammers in the choir are not regulated, in some cases beaten by one string, if not on a nearby sound. The hostess had planned, I held up no more than an hour, so in Anyway, did the previous tune.
Imagine her surprise when I asked about the time of the next visit next week. “Toccata” I adjusted and tuned to a tuning fork, the hostess was a little girl happy, but I was left with some, inexplicable feeling of guilt towards the child, who suffered more than two years of negligence would-tuner and misunderstandings adults. Very often, nowadays, in music schools instruments that do not meet basic technical requirements, which in turn significantly reduces the effectiveness of the teacher.
