How long does it take to learn piano technology?

The speed at which you learn will be dependent on many different factors, such as your own motivation and proclivity for the necessary skills; which avenue of education you choose to pursue; your available resources for practice, and how often you will be able to practice. You may progress very quickly through certain skillsets, but struggle with others. It's also important to note that even after years of practice and education, there will still always be more for you to learn. So perhaps it is more useful to start by setting clear perimeters for what you would like to achieve with your learning. For instance, do you just want to be able to tune your own piano or do you want to become a full-time technician capable of confidently servicing client pianos as your main source of income?

Depending on all of these factors, it can take anywhere from 3 months to 2 years to cover the basics. If you'd like a more personalized estimate for how quickly you could learn about piano technology, talk to a professional technician about your current position and how you would want to progress.
