The Voice of the Piano – a technician’s guide to voicing” by Andre Oorebeek has been called the Bible of piano voicing. This book is packed with information on hammer felt and how to consistently bring out the best tone from an instrument. Includes chapters on tools, hammer felt “anatomy”, shaping and filing, needling and much more. The book comes with a 45 minute companion DVD/Digital download which shows in detail all the steps needed to take a set of hammers from raw to the finished state.

Not a “print-on-demand” product, The Voice of the Piano is ink printed on quality gloss paper (60% post-consumer waste) with lavish color photos and a hard cover binding.  More on the book’s website

Oorebeek leads the reader through the voicing process in detail. It is not just the hammers that are the focus of a skilled voicer; the strings, soundboard, the regulation, the whole instrument as well as the acoustic space and the owner’s preferences and idiosyncrasies must all be taken into account. Indeed, this is the holistic approach to voicing.

Of special note is the included DVD (or digital download): 45 minutes of real voicing instruction, not just supporting the information in the book but also showing many tricks and skills that cannot readily be described accurately. One can literally watch as the piano tone develops from a raw sound to a dignified blend of “power and silk”, as the author calls it.

The author holds back no secrets. Everything is spelled out very clearly in this engaging book.

All book and DVD sales are final – no returns.
