Throughout the month of June we will be partnering with the School of Piano Technology for the Blind through our Referral Rewards Program. For 67 years, this non-profit organization has provided training and education in piano technology to blind and visually impaired individuals throughout the United States and around the world. They are proud to have the status of the only school of their kind in the world and having an average graduate employment rate 48% higher than the current national employment rate for blind and visually impaired adults ages 18-45.
The training and certification provided by the School of Piano Technology for the Blind is a hands on and highly individualized curriculum. They strive to provide a vulnerable population the opportunity to pursue challenging and rewarding futures in the field of piano technology, along with the ability to enjoy a rewarding career and financially support a household.
This non-profit enjoys sharing their passion for music throughout the city of Vancouver through their Piano Adoption Program—placing gently-used pianos in homes, churches, community centers, and other nonprofit sites. Along with their training and certification curriculum, the fondly call themselves the “Piano Hospital,” serving Clark County and north Portland. Their certified Piano Technician is available Tuesday-Saturday, 8AM- 5PM by appointment.
We are thankful for the opportunity to support the School of Piano Technology and their service here in Vancouver, WA and throughout the world!
