The Chopin Foundation of the United States has set the top prize of its Tenth National Chopin Piano Competition to $100,000 for the 2020 event, making it the highest award offered by any piano competition in the country.

This change showcases the need to provide appropriate compensation to artists at the top of their field, just as professionals in other industries are compensated for devoting large amounts of time, years of intense training, and a true passion to their craft.

A Silent Piano is essentially still an acoustic piano, enpowered with the choice of muting the sounds that are produced when the hammer strikes the strings. Consequently, its main selling point would be that it offers the player a chance to have private silent practice, even in the wee hours like 2am.

Essex pianos are designed and engineered in New York by Steinway & Sons and made in China at the Pearl River factory. Steinway introduced its Essex line of pianos in early 2001 with a limited offering of models made by Young Chang, and the brand kept an unusually low profile in the piano market for a number of years. In 2006, a major relaunch of Essex included a new and very complete line comprising 35 grand and 31 vertical models and finishes.

Americans are still making music, just not as much on traditional pianos.

"As the technology for electronic instruments and keyboards has improved people have switched, because you don't have to tune an electronic keyboard. You can carry it with you, it's lightweight. It can make any sound you want."

The economic difficulties of piano dealers reflect the larger issues that faced America’s piano manufacturers. Like the U.S. auto industry, it was hit hard by imports from Asia, as well as by the growing popularity of electronic keyboards.

There were 160 piano makers in the U.S. a century ago. There are only four major producers today. Manufacturing has shifted largely to China, Korea and Japan.

The piano has been the staple of family homes for generations, but cultural shifts and the recession have seen sales plunge in the United States.

The owners of many piano stores are under pressure as the traditional acoustic piano falls out of favour. Children have been distracted by smart phones and iPads and sport.

Why learn the piano when you can make a phone sound like an instrument at the touch of a finger?
