Piano and grand piano service
Malmö Academy of Music has 61 acoustic grand pianos and 78 pianos which are tuned and maintained by an employed piano technician. There are also a couple of freelance piano technicians who come and tune instruments when needed.
All instruments are tuned according to a timetable, ranging from twice per year to once a week, or daily check-ups during hectic periods. In addition to the tuning, scheduled mechanical service, intonation and replacement of mechanical parts are also done.
Your role as a student
You are welcome to practise the piano in designated practice rooms and certain teaching rooms if you have access via your LU card. Please respect the regulations in each room.
If you discover that something is broken, or does not work properly, please report it via Helpdesk as soon as possible. Select ticket type: AV & Instruments > Piano service and tuning. Students and staff have a joint responsibility to take care of the school's equipment and premises.
Prepared grand piano
Prepared grand pianos are not permitted and can only be carried out after an agreement with the piano technician on a specially designated instrument. You must not put foreign objects between strings or touch them with your hands or fingers.
You will find the piano workshop in B316.
