I’m getting Paid Back

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I have been teasing all of my friends on the East Coast about the lousy weather they are having and I was just laughing about the fact they are calling me now to find out if we are being washed away.  They say pay-back is tough.  It is.

Last night’s broadcast was terrific.  Ken Ard did a great job talking and playing the piano.  His discussion on teaching piano here in San Diego was very enlightening and I was very glad that he was here.  In particular were the live audience.  It is really nice to see them and to know they are having a great time.

Next week we are having Cindi Soriano and the group from Desi’s Music.  It should be very fun.  Cindi is going to have several of her students with her and it should be a great evening.

We attended the NAMM show last week and it was amazing.  NAMM is always a lot of fun.  you get to see all of the new product and chat with old friends while making new ones.  I decided while I was there to take two new lines and I will be telling you more about that shortly.  I am very excited about 2010.  It should be an incredible year.

Stop by and say hello sometime, we would love to meet you.

Tonight’s Show

Monday, January 11th, 2010

I am so excited to have Rosemary Bailey with us tonight.  She is going to be demonstrating and playing on the Roland RG-3, HPi6S and the Atelier.  Rosemary’s talent is incredible and her passion for the music and instrument shows in every performance.  Not only is she a great talent but also a very close friend.

Tonight is going to be another milestone for us because we are welcoming a live audience tonight.  Everyone who is in our area tonight and would like to see the show live may do so.  We request that you be here by 6:30 so we can seat you and fill you in on the way we work during the show.  The seating is free and the concert will be great.

This week is the week that many people in the musical instrument business look forward to all year.  The NAMM show is held in Anaheim, Ca.  this week.  We will have the opportunity to see most all of the manufacturers both foreign and domestic in every genre of the industry you can think of.

We will have many friends visiting this week that we havent seen since last year and I am excited about seeing them.

Tonight is our welcome to our friends from Japan with Roland and several other manufacturers and people that will visiting us for the first time.  We are glad that they are our partners in business and friends in life.  To our visitors we say “welcome” .

Happy New Year

Friday, January 1st, 2010

I was talking to a customer today that told me she would be very happy to see 2009 go.  I understand why she felt that way but, 2009 has been a decent year for us.

I met some great people.  Had lots of fun teaching.  The students have all been a lot of fun.  Sold some pianos to very satisfied customers.  Learned that I could make it in the face of some undeniably difficult times.  Found the strength, energy and will to walk in the door every morning with a smile on my face and expecting great things.

Precision Piano Moving has had a great year, Accutone Piano Tuning has had a great year, the Roland Learning Center has had a great year and in each one of these categories they have had a better year than last.  PianoSD has been affected to the extent that while 2008 saw more sales than 2009 by a very slim margin, the other departments were able to contribute and has given us a year that ,while not increasing in sales, has not plummeted like so many others.

God has blessed us and shown us that we are able to make it and by His grace we will continue.

What about 2010 ?

We are planning great things for 2010.  I can’t make all the announcements yet, but, be prepared to see some eyebrows lifted.  I can’t wait.

In the meantime, stop by and say hello.  I would love to meet you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY and remember to watch our TV show on Monday at 7.  Just log into www.pianosd.com and click on “watch our latest videos”.
