Ralph - What a bummer to register for a class and then find out you're not in after all, and then a no-go on your second choice. Hopefully you'll find you like the teacher and small class you ended up with. The low price is a definite bonus, as is th

I know someone who mentions "knowing what the key sounds like." I think he has a pretty good idea what key something is in when he hears it. I try to guess now and then when I hear something new, but really, I haven't a clue.

It does take some knowledge and practice to learn how to set the pin properly, but as others mentioned in this post, it doesn't hurt to learn how to touch up unisons that go out quicker than the rest of the piano. You'll want to make sure you proper

Something else I've learned about tuning/setting the pin is to make quick jerky motions (think impact wrench) with the tuning hammer, rather than a slow, twisting motion. If the pin is tight, it will twist and distort rather than move in the block if
