We hope everyone was able to view "American Grand," the documentary aired by public television, which features several of our local talented technicians.
In November we will have a multi-chapter meeting at Pierre's Fine Pianos. Our guest speaker will be Isaac Sadigursky. He will begin with a mini-technical on dealing with broken screws, but knowing Isaac, we'll learn so much more. Then he will launch into his program on Perfect Pitch, which he last presented to Southern California chapters about 20 years ago.
Perfect pitch is both a mystery and a misery. But what is it? Tuning pianos in the field every day, our clients are fascinated and mesmerized by what we do and very often they ask if we have "perfect" or "absolute" pitch. Isaac will demonstrate advantages and disadvantages of possessing this "god's gift," tell a few stories and share both historical and “hysterical” facts about famous composers and musicians. He will show you a way to improve your hearing skills and little tricks on how to deal with some difficult customers who may think they have "perfect pitch."
