What is Well Temperament?
Well Temperament is a type of tuning that all the major composers from Bach to Rachmaninoff composed upon. During the last century this tuning has been all but lost to us until just recently. 

Well Temperament gives music more emotion, color and depth, because each major and minor key has its own unique flavor. What Well Temperament does is make the music come alive in a way that is really unbelievable. The major keys sound happier, more pure and the minor keys sound sadder, more tragic, more melancholy. And each key is different and unique unto itself. The music sounds the way the composers meant, and when one hears it that way, one is astounded at the brilliance of some of the composers usage of this tuning in their compositions.

Tuners and pianists the world over are gradually realizing that changing to Well Temperament is like hearing in black & white your whole life and suddenly changing to color. Well Temperament may open up an exciting new door to the enjoyment of music that you never before knew existed.
