The Chicago Chapter of the Piano Technicans Guild (PTG) offers a tremendous opportunity for Chicago Chapter members to learn about and practice valuable technical skills related to our trade. The First Tuesday Club meets on the 1st Tuesday evening of every month. Topics range from tuning and temperament to invaluable field repairs. Guest speakers often attend and the core group of visitors has grown steadily.
The PTG requires a rigid series of exams in order to achieve the Registered Piano Technician (RPT) credential. Attendees of First Tuesday are given practice jigs and models for stringing, common repairs and regulation procedures to help prepare for the PTG exams.
Jeff Cappelli currently serves as Program Chairman and as a Director of Education in the Chicago Chapter of the PTG. First Tuesday is a wonderful way to experience and enjoy friendships found in the Chapter. For more information call Jeff at 708-772-8282.
