Hi, I came across the forum. I have been doing a ocupel of piano projects and was thinking it might be of interest here. In this work we set up a piano in a bus station witha pianist and then got them to play Beethoven moonlight Sonata, only we got passers-bye to join in with him, many of whom were non players. I would really like to know what people think.

Nice idea Smiley

I think new innovations are really needed if we want to get people interested in the piano in this era of effortless entertainment.

When I was a child probably one in 5 of my peers played an instrument (piano being the most common) at least in the middle class families. Nowdays most of my friends have children but very few of them play anything Sad They do sports and computer stuff on their free time.

This spring's plans: A couple of Scarlatti Sonatas, late Scriabin preludes and something by Shosty. Maybe a Chopin waltz and just started poking at the Berceuse.
