Association of Blind Piano Tuners

Organisation name
Association of Blind Piano Tuners
Description
The Association of Blind Piano Tuners (ABPT) exists to serve the professional and particular needs of its members and other blind and partially sighted piano tuners throughout the world. There are three categories of membership: member; associate member; student member. Only full members may add the letters (MABPT) to their name.

Membership of the Association is at the discretion of the council of ABPT, and commensurate upon passing the diploma in piano tuning and repair of the Association for the Education and Welfare of the Visually Handicapped. (AEWVH)

The Association seek to encourage all tuners to gain and maintain the highest professional standards and to exhibit ethical and professional integrity at all times.

They endeavour to offer ongoing training to those who wish to gain these levels of ability, even though they are not members of the Association, yet.

This they strive to do by running subsidised seminar's for fully sighted and visually impaired tuners in close collaboration with the Royal National College for the Blind, piano tuning department, at Hereford in England.

They maintain close links with all of the professional bodies of the music industry, and in particular with piano tuning organisations worldwide.
