Musical Instrument Repairers and Tuners
No matter what family of instruments interests you, you should
start preparing for this field by gaining a basic knowledge of
music. Take high school classes in music history, music theory, and
choir, chorus, or other singing classes. By learning to read music,
developing an ear for scales, and understanding tones and pitches,
you will be developing an excellent background for this work. Also,
explore your interest in instruments (besides your own voice) by
taking band or orchestra classes or private music lessons. By
learning how to play an instrument, you will also learn how a
properly tuned and maintained instrument should sound. If you find
yourself interested in instruments with metal parts, consider
taking art or shop classes that provide the opportunity to do metal
working. These classes will allow you to practice soldering and
work with appropriate tools. If you are interested in piano or
stringed instruments, consider taking art or shop classes that
offer woodworking. In these classes you will learn finishing
techniques and use tools that you may relate to the building and
maintaining of the bodies of these instruments.
