Instruction in Harpsichord Tuning and Maintenance

Maintaining your own instrument can save you the expense of calling me out to fix a single broken string or to adjust one leaking damper, for example, and as mentioned in the "Tuning" section, harpsichords go out of tune rapidly enough that it is wise to learn how to tune yourself. To help clients to learn these skills, I offer instruction in tuning and basic repairs. For any single skill, say tuning, I recommend scheduling 2 hours to start in order to give you ample time for practice and feedback. Depending on the task being taught, we might want to schedule additional lessons. Our ultimate goal is not necessarily a professional level of competence, but rather a level of confidence that makes basic maintenance of one's own instrument possible. Don't hesitate to contact me if you wish to better understand and perform tuning and repairs.
