General


Oberlin Conservatory’s Artist Diploma in Piano Technology, designed in association with Steinway & Sons, capitalizes on the conservatory’s long relationship with the piano maker, access to incredible performers, and over 230 Steinway grand pianos of all vintages. The Oberlin Conservatory is the oldest continuous client of Steinway and Sons, and has been an All-Steinway School since 1877.  The Conservatory is also the only off-site factory training facility for the C.F. Theodore Steinway Technical Academy. Featuring mentorship by concert technicians and rebuilders John Cavanaugh, Robert Murphy and Ken Sloane, the program emphasizes the collaborative relationship between the concert artist and piano technician. Study includes advanced techniques on both New York and Hamburg built models in the shop and on stage, as well as harpsichord and fortepiano maintenance and tuning.
