These recordings allowed me to evaluate my work from somewhere other than at the piano at the time of the tuning.

Each recording is 3 – 4 minutes long and may include some extraneous noises, noisy pedaling, flubbed notes, and a customer or two customers chiming in not knowing I was recording.   These recordings were made with an iPhone 5 on a plate strut or on top of the vertical piano.

I start with some chords, then a snippet of a Beethoven Sonata in various permutations – handy for listening to the treble tuning, and lastly a more contemporary sampling.

If you have a ceiling fan, make sure the fan is turned off!
