No piano can sound its best without the blend of craftsmanship and artistry required of a piano technician. 

Restoration and maintenance of high-quality pianos—like the 240 Steinway grands at Oberlin—is the job of our Piano Technology Department.

And it can be your job too.

Since 2014, Oberlin has offered an exclusive Artist Diploma in Piano Technology. Presented in conjunction with Steinway & Sons, this ADip in Piano Tech is a two-year, hands-on degree program that prepares students for coveted careers throughout the world.

And it’s not just for pianists: While a love of music is certainly an asset, piano technicians can come from a variety of backgrounds—and graduates in science fields often find themselves especially at home in piano technology.

New sessions begin in fall 2020, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Learn more at

HAVE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF: On November 15, we’re throwing open the doors of Oberlin’s Piano Tech Department, in the lower level of Bibbins Hall (via the east stairwell). Drop in on piano tech classes and talk with the students and faculty. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
