Development of New Qualification in Piano Tuning

This New Zealand Certificate in Piano Tuning and Technology has been developed in partnership with the New Zealand Piano Tuners and Technicians Guild (NZPTTG) and addresses a critical shortage of piano tuners in New Zealand by providing a pathway for locally trained graduates who can operate at a recognised industry standard.

The qualification was listed in July 2023 and can be viewed here.

As the qualification has only just been developed, there will be a delay while an education provider puts together an appropriate programme/course of study for trainees to enrol in. Toi Mai and Te Pūkenga are currently exploring options to develop a programme ready for delivery sometime in 2024.

In the meantime, NZPTTG is keeping a waitlist for prospective trainees and intends to offer short workshops/work experience opportunities to provide a better understanding of what it is like to work as a piano tuner. To be added to this waitlist, please contact NZPTTG at [email protected]
