The Past Month

Monday, August 8th, 2011

The past month I have been out of touch for the blog.  We have been making many changes, one of which is going to be released by the end of the month.

I have long been concerned about the fact that shopping for pianos can be rather difficult when you are not sure what you are doing.  You’re not sure if there are questions that should be asked, if you are asking the wrong questions, the right questions, or if there is something thatis missing.

I have watched many customers that are not sure what to ask, get in a lot of trouble because they forgot the right questions or asked all together the wrong questions.  Searching for a piano can be exhausting to the person who knows nothing at all.

Searching for a teacher, tuner, technician, artist or any other thing in the piano business can be difficult at times.  In the age that we live in it is usually about electronic gadgets or cars that are all over blogs but, finding piano information can be challenging at very best.

Next month PianoSD is planning on a complete overhaul that will hopefully take the guess work out of buying a piano anywhere in the U.S.  finding a teacher in Los Angeles, or a tuner in San Francisco, perhaps you need to know more information about pianos in Sacramento I hope to help put the end of quess work for you.

As we move forward I would like to tell you how excited I am to now be handling all of the social media and internet marketing for Brodmann pianos in the U.S.  We have been talking about this for about 7 months and finally landed the contract in July.  As you know I am managing the Piano Outlet in Nipomo, Ca.  We are a part of a much larger branch in Oxnard.  i have been so happy with the area and what it has to offer. So if you are up in the San Luis Obis

Scott Houston at PianoSD.com

Ric Overton and Emmy Award winning Scott Houston at PianoSD.com in Mission Valley, San Diego Ca.

Yesterday was a blast with Scott Houston talking about the Play Piano in a Flash classes here at PianoSD.com in Mission Valley, San Diego, Ca.

Scott was in town yesterday having done a presentation for NAMM to the Piano Manufacturers Association he asked to come and visit and he and I decided to make an event out of his time here.  He greeted customers and talked to them about the Play Piano in a Flash program and how much fun people are having across the country learning to play.  He emphasized the fun of  learning to play and how simple it is to learn to play piano when you are given the right set of instructions.

As many of you know we also do a Streaming show called Live@PianoSD which you can access through our new website www.PianoSD.com and click on the icon Live@PianoSD .  Scott took the time yesterday to do this with me and it was great to have a small snipet about what he does on PBS every week.  Scott is a 4 time Emmy Award winner and is going into his 14th season with PBS teaching people all over the nation and internationally how to play the piano.

Scott’s love for our industry and his willingness to help manufacturers, retailers promote the music business is fantastic coupled with the drive he has to help average people discover thier dream of learning to play the piano is obvious in his exuberance.  I hope you get a chance to watch the show on Live@PianoSD as well as your local PBS station simply entitled, Scott Houston The Piano Guy or look for Play Piano In A Flash.

Drop by and see us sometime we would love to meet you.

Cool Concert

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Daniel Jackson, Marshall Hawkins and Chuck McPherson did an incredible job Saturday night.  We had around 40 fans here that were totally impressed with the concert.  These guys don’t work together every night but, with a simple wink, nod or smile they each knew exactly what the other one wanted and what they were thinking.  It is a pleasure to watch professionals do thier jobs.  Jazz should always sound this good and Daniel’s piano playing was perfect.

Saturday night was also a new adventure for us.  We have never broadcast a performance before and decided to give it a try.  Max from www.Maxisawesome.com was umable to be at the show so he walked me through the set up and it went perfectly.  Of course if you go to www.PianoSD.com and click on “watch us live”  it will take you to the broadcast.  We will be doing more so keep your eye on us.  We are located in Mission Valley in the heart of Sunny San Diego, Ca.

Drop by the store some time and say hello, we would love to meet you.

nate_chris_365x274Last night was an incredible night.  I could not believe how cool these two guys were and the talent they have.  To listen to these two guys perfection in sound was unbelievable.

Chris works with the San Diego Youth Symphony and Nate has his own teaching studio.  I met Chris last  year as we began our relationship with the Youth Symphony and it has been a really good relationship.  We supply pianos for thier performances in thier various venues.

Chris teaches as well as Nate and it really ties in very nicely to what PianoSD does.  Marko and I have been working very hard to fill our group classes as well as the private classes that Marko has.  The response has been overwhelming and I am actually quite surprises myself.  The new Play Piano in a Flash classes has three folks that have never played before and it is such a joy to watch them begin the process of learning.

If its time to start learning to play or you have a friend that might be interested in learning to play send them to us and we can help.  Including Organ or children with special needs.

To get to the show for last night click on the link and watch Chris and Nate.  You will enjoy this.

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