traditionally speaking, piano technology is a highly acquired skills where every tuners and technician from different dealer, supplier or individual in malaysia, will keep all the knowledge which they know to themselves only, no one will willing to share out.
time is changing, the world is globalised where everyone can easily make connection to the other part of the world and information can be easily get. by working alone now, it is very difficult to achieve a certain level of standard and quality. building a network can be easy but sometime, on the contrary, can be tough if no one willing to stay together and improve together.
we ( piano tuners and technicians) are considered as ART PERFORMERs, where art is a very subjective thing to be rated and judged thus, in my opinion, no one is 100% perfect or the "best" in the field of art. however, it is important that by standing together, we share, we learn and we gather together to make improvement in order to provide a better quality of service to the entire piano music industry in malaysia.
tough roads ahead, but someone got to break the ice.
