Mastering the Art of the Piano Action

Announcing the next Renner Academy

August 18th – 23rd with optional Bonus Day on August 24th

The Renner Academy is a full-week “Immersion Course” with the industry’s top instructors who provide detailed material and hands-on training in the art of replacing and regulating the grand piano action.

Envisioned by Renner USA founder, Lloyd Meyer, the Academy has been providing the finest training of its kind since 2014. The program is designed for intermediate and advanced-level piano technicians who want to expand and perfect their knowledge in all areas of grand piano action replacement, repair, regulation, advanced hammer selection, preparation, voicing, and back action replacement. Class size is limited to 24 students in order to provide personalized, hands-on, experience with each student able to work with their own piano action.

The program was recently expanded and enhanced last year, and is now even better than ever, thanks in part to the generous sponsorship of Ravenscroft Pianos. Part of the experience will now include hands-on work inside the new Build Studio where the Ravenscroft grand pianos are produced, and the voicing instruction will happen on stage in a state-of-the-art concert hall with amazing acoustics at The Ravenscroft, pictured here:

Also included is an optional VIP trip to the Musical Instrument Museum, where participants can see the Renner Exhibit, the famous “kitchen piano” at the Steinway exhibit, and enjoy a “behind the scenes” tour of special areas of the museum not available to the public.

Tuition is $3800 per student. If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Renner USA at 877-475-1700, Monday through Friday, between 8 am and 3 pm Mountain Time.
