THE ALL NEW PIANOSD.COM

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

With our ever increasing need for music education and enlightenment I realized several months ago that I had a gem in the PianoSD.com website.   I have the understanding and knowledge to make a difference .  I sat down and spoke with Max Morgan our Web Designer about the possibilities and what I wanted to create.  It has taken shape and we finally have a product started that I believe will increase the public’s awareness of the need for making  music in their homes, schools, churches, etc.

I have long been an advocate of the teaching community.  In our store in San Diego I spent most of my time working with students and teachers on ways to help make the community at large have a greater appreciation of music makers.  Whether its on a washtub or a concert grand, music does change people’s daily outlook.

That’s why PianoSD.com (short for Piano Social Directory) was created.  When you go to the website you will be asked to put in your information and “join” Piano Social Directory.  If you are a piano teacher or piano tuner, if you are a manufacturer you have the option of simply adding in your information into our data base so anyone who is looking for your service can easily find you.

If you are simply a fan or enthusiast you can also sign up to receive emails about events, products or happenings in and around your area.  Sign up but please do NOT choose one of the blocks if you don’t fit into that category.  We will capture your name and information and as we progress we will be keeping you up to date on the latest.

Finally we will be adding a couple of new spots for piano artists to join to promote your talents and get creative suggestions from us on how to increase your image and public awareness.

I am very excited about what’s going on and hope that you will feel free to join our site and participate in the many changes that are taking place at the all new Piano Social Directory at http://PianoSD.com

NAMM 2012 Highlights

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

NAMM 2012 is almost over.

I spent two days at NAMM in Anaheim.  It is the most exciting and exhilarating trade show that I have ever been a part of.  So here are some of my thoughts.

First Wednesday night Max from http://MaxMorganDesigns.com started the completion of www.pianosd.com. I spoke with him last at 1:00 a.m. Wednesday night.  Then 6:00 a.m. he was still working. BUT its almost completed.  If you go to www.pianosd.com you will see the changes, I am VERY EXCITED.

I saw so many friends and people that I have known for many years and made several new friends.  It was very nice to renew old acquaintances.  The piano selection was down this year for various reasons HOWEVER, Brodmann’s latest AS 275 was incredible.  I mean, yes we do business with them but it was unbelievable how nice the piano sounded and the way it felt.

I had the opportunity to play on a Sauter Concert Grand too.  As many of you know Sauter is one of my favorites and I was not disappointed  at all. The sound was absolutely incredible and the look and feel of the piano as well as the incredible.

There were some amazing piano teaching programs along with education materials, etc.  There was every music instrument that you could think of  and then some.  As we begin to make our changes and improvements we will be doing some new things.  I cant wait to show you some new things.

I attended the Yamaha Breakfast on Friday morning and was completely blown away by the new product lines they have and some very cool programs for the dealers, sellers and customers at http://yamaha.com

I will give you more as we move around some.

What’s Happening with www.PianoSD.com?

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Over the past year most of you know that we have been undergoing some major changes.  Those changes are starting to become evident as you log into the website you will see whats happening.

We are embarking on a new program that we are hoping will help bring music appreciation and music education to the forefront.  Every day we have been making changes behind the scene and Max (some of you may remember from the Live@PianoSD broadcasts) has been very patient with me while I have changed my mind several times a day for the past few months.

We finally arrived with the finished product and we will be rolling out those changes in the next few weeks.  Thank you very much for your patience and hopefully as we grow you will be happy with the final results.  The new changes are very VERY exciting and help expose my passion for music as we go along.

Thank you very much for your patience and stay tuned to a VERY exciting future in the Piano business.
