One of today's foremost (forte)pianists has interesting things to say about Mozart's keyboard style, ornamentation (and its implementation), the use of rubato.....and pianos. He also touches on Beethoven and Schumann. www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02316

I'm 34, and I've met some piano techs and salespeople around my age. I suspect my tech is probably younger than me - I haven't asked her. I don't know anyone who owns a piano though. I would expect more young people in the industry if demand were in

Yes, I've always found it bizarre that Roland doesn't even offer an *option* of a music rest for their stage pianos. The could do like Nord, drill two holes in the chassis (o.k, not quite, but pretty close! to slip in a music stand and then s

Pianos will never go out of style. But they are not as mainstream as they once were, that is true, and they probably won't be again. Piano tuning and technology is not the bright career it once was, so let's face it, less people are attracted to it.
