We have had tons of things going on in our world.

First, I am happy to report that we are finally working out a deal with an international piano manufacturer to handle all of their social media and electronic marketing for them. I am hoping to see that happen in the next few days.  I will keep you informed as that happens.

I opened a way to be a silent billboard for music and lessons and your favorite things about music.  If you go to www.pianosd.spreadshirt.com you will see the site where you can purchase a t-shirt or make one with your own design.  You can say anything you want, order it right there and it will be shipped directly to you or to a friend.  Stop by and check it out at the address above.

As we are building our social media for piano dealers, teachers, artists and others I hope to be able to bring you more things that will be fun and interesting.

Going into the next few weeks we are going to be discussing Social media and how it can change your life.  I noticed on the news tonight that Facebook and Twitter were the spark that started a rampage in Egypt.  With the power of that media I am hoping to send the word to as many people as I can get to read,  MUSIC IS FUN.

Trying to imagine our life without music is almost impossible.  I can’t imagine even one day of my life without music.  If you think about it neither can you.  On every hand and everywhere there is the sound of some type of music.  What a great world we live in.

I will be sending you more information about all of the above as soon as it all becomes available.

STOP DREAMING AND START PLAYING

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

When I first had the idea of PianoSD.com (along with some others) I really wanted to underscore the fact that music should be fun and exciting.  All of my life music has been an extension of my mood and personality.  Sometimes quiet and blue other times very emotional and most of the time very up tempo and exciting.  I had not thought of helping others feel what I had felt most of my life.

Last year we began the PianoSD.com School of Music.  It immediately grew to an acceptable number and we have been working as status quo for about a year now.  Last month for some reason I had more people than usual question me about our lesson program and how it works.  I answered the questions and it was not until someone expressed to me that their life long dream was to be able to play the piano that I realized status quo was no longer enough.

This brings me to the present.  Marko Paul has done a fantastic job teaching people to play the piano.  I have even taught a few classes myself and had an absolute blast doing it but, now I see that “enough is simply NOT enough”.  Many people are wanting to learn to play the piano and understand music so, we are giving music and music lessons an all out push.

Play Piano in a Flash is one of the classes that we are teaching in a group setting.  It is written by Scott Houston “The Piano Guy” on KPBS.  He plays the piano and teaches the piano in a televised class that he has won four emmys for.  We are his exclusive franchise in San Diego County and have been working with him for over a year now.  I am so excited about this because i get to teach this “easy to learn” class of adults.  We just began a new class last night and it is going great.

Marko is teaching mostly private classes and one on ones with younger and older students and his classes are really growing.  We are considering now a young man to add to the teacher line up and after talking with him last night I cant wait until we are all on board together.

As we are learning and teaching I will add more workshops such as the history of music, the origins of musical instruments and perhaps “how a piano works” class that I get to teach.  I love this class because it is about my real passion.

If you are considering taking piano lessons……..NOW is the time.  In Scott Houston’s words:

STOP DREAMING AND START PLAYING.

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