A homeless man with a scruffy beard and long scraggly hair looks like a lost soul. But he has magic fingers on the piano and his talent is breathtaking. He's playing the piano on a public sidewalk in Sarasota, Florida. No one expected to hear such...

"Graduating cohorts will be invited to return to school from 19 May for face-to-face consultations, lab sessions, and coursework.

This is something schools always do during the holidays, and we have decided to continue the practice this year."

Piano teachers probably have to adjust their lessons with these students accordingly.

In March we ran an article entitled COVID-19 and Consumer Piano Care. This detailed the advisory issued by the Piano Technicians Guild with respect to the current pandemic. Further advice on the subject has since been published by several authorities, so it seems apposite to highlight them here.

There is conflicting advice regarding the use of certain chemicals, so please be careful, especially if treating a piano that has ivory keys.

Amazing impromptu playing on a public piano by a builder. Thumbs up!
"Well he is a builder. Is it so hard to believe he constructed this masterpiece?"

This is a proposal for a new relationship between lifestyles and pianos based on the concept that the design encompasses not only the shape of the piano, but also the time spent with the instrument. We collaborated with a furniture manufacturer to create three prototypes.

The Sound of Silence, the original version by Simon and Garfunkel. There is a more modern cover by Disturbed which is in a different style, more heavy and dark, with the original more soulful.

The Disturbed one is also much more orchestral as well which fits the song and their amazing music video. I love how songs that were written years ago can still mean so much today.

The ladies really enjoyed it and were shocked that I was 12 - I ha a nice chat with them. Also, a little bit of people watching - the lady with the red beret walking by, and must have walked behind the lift and came round the other side to watch me!

During a recital at De Doelen in Rotterdam and something was not right with sustain pedal of the piano...

Lesson it contained for us to learn: rather than becoming upset, we see her the true demonstration of how an artist performs, when taking a situation that could have distributed the mood for everyone, and turning it into something lovely, funny... and teaching us to do the same in my life. Thank you for this absolutely stunning and meaningful video Elaine.
