Why Do You Love The Piano?
Welcome to All About Pianos! I absolutely love playing and listening to the "88 keys," and since you’re at this site, I’m guessing there’s just something about it that you love, too. Whether you’re looking for some history, information about famous pianists, lessons, tips, sheet music, teaching resources, valuation help, accessories, or anything else related to the piano, you’ve come to the right place.
I have to admit that my motives for creating this site are a little selfish. I’m kind of ashamed to admit that even though I’ve been playing for over 35 years, and now play professionally, and although I’ve taught lessons, and own a wonderful upright myself, I realized there’s so much I still don’t know about this marvelous instrument. So I hope you’ll let my passion and curiosity be our guide, and that you’ll join me in learning all there is to know about the greatest instrument in the world.
This site may never be as complete as I want it to be – but I hope you’ll check back often, add my “feed” to your RSS reader (and if those words sound as crazy to you as they still do to me, just click the link at the left to learn about RSS feeds), check my site blog for updates, and subscribe to my upcoming newsletter, and I’ll do my best to be as concise, accurate, informative, and entertaining as possible. So, thanks for stopping by, and let’s raise the lid, shall we?
