About Emil Fries Piano Hospital and Training Center

The Emil Fries Piano and Hospital Training Center, now known as the School of Piano Technology for the Blind, is a nonprofit institution in Vancouver, Washington, that offers training in piano technology for both the blind and visually impaired.

The school is sympathetic to the career goals of the blind and visually impaired. Emil Fries believes that it is possible to overcome these physical obstacles to enjoy a successful career.

The academics at the school feature exclusive training in all aspects of piano technology. From tuning to regulation to performing repairs on both upright and grand pianos, students will become experienced as piano technicians.

Graduates go on to gain entry-level positions as tuner technicians in businesses like music shops, recording studios and even in concert auditoriums.
