Helen Weston of Bristol grew up playing a variety of musical instruments, as did her five siblings, says the Addison County Independent. She majored in concert piano and music theory in college and taught music to children at Starksboro’s Robinson Elementary and Lincoln Community Schools. But there was something missing. Weston always had wanted to run her own business. Something during an encounter with a piano tuner at her parent’s house clicked and changed her career direction. She spent months of studying how to tune and repair pianos on her own, then enrolling in Boston’s North Bennet Street School which specializes in hands-on technical training. It took her two years to finish the course and now she’s one of fewer than 2,500 registered technicians with the Piano Technicians Guild. “If I can do it, anybody can. Take two years out of your life to learn something completely new because you want to,” she said. Now her life’s in tune.
