The Australasian Piano Tuners and Technicians Association, APTTA, was formed in 1984 and has branch associations in WA, SA, Vic, NSW, Qld, and New Zealand. Over 300 professional piano technicians are members of the APTTA. Conventions are held every two years, with the most recent in Brisbane in September 2009. The 2009 convention was hosted by the Queensland branch and held in conjunction with the meeting of the International Association of Piano Builders and Technicians, IAPBT.
These conventions give our widely dispersed piano technicians an opportunity to gather and exchange information, develop and refine their piano tuning and piano technology skills and to set upon new goals and directions for the association. Many tuners are sole practitioners and the association’s conventions and chat group APTTA_Technician@yahoogroups.com provide pleasant and valuable technical forums.
The APTTA’s overarching goal is to raise standards of piano tuning and service for the benefit and enjoyment of pianists and all those who enjoy piano music.
