Union of European Piano Tuners and Technicians Associations
Europiano is a union of 17 independent national piano tuner associations. The main purpose is to be a forum for the craftsmen in the field of piano technology, to support their professional and commercial interests.
A technical Congress is held every three years and is run by a different host Association every time. The Congress contributes towards preserving the cultural value of keyboard instruments and music. The Congress plays an extremely important role within Europiano.
Europiano also runs and awards it’s own technical degree, as not every Member country has their own certification process. Training is also undertaken by Europiano to prepare candidates for sitting the Europiano Degree.
The Board of Europiano is always interested to hear from Countries who would like to join the Europiano ‘family’. (Write to the board)
From 2016 onwards the “Europiano” magazine will no longer be published by PPV Medien, but will be issued by the Union of European Piano Maker Association's own publishing organization.
Association members members will continue to receive Europiano which is included in their membership. Non-members can, as before, also subscribe to the magazine.
