Pianos are amazing instruments with many interesting working parts. The instrument is truly a collaboration of genius ideas made into miracles of sound and beauty. The pedals on a piano have history, just like the piano itself.
Nothing intrigues the public like the secrets of the great and famous. Whether it is in 2017 or 1810, the mystique of secret loves and unknown origins captivate us all.
When the mystery involves Ludwig van Beethoven, a musician who stands historically at the pinnacle of greatness and fame, it ups the ante considerably! The romance of it all makes one almost swoon (as they might have said in 1810).

Sure, I can give you a name, (and he wasn’t Egyptian) but you can’t truly report on the inventor of the piano without looking back through the entire history of man for the nuanced answer.

They say it’s never too late to learn. But for an adult who is interested in learning piano and doesn’t get a start as a child, it may look like a daunting challenge. Where to begin? There is much to know about pianos and music, and one might be correct to think it’s difficult. A lot of the difficulty depends on the intentions and desires of the beginner. Any endeavor that requires dedication and focus, such as making music, brings its own rewards. We believe the entire process involved is a noble and humbling effort. The more passion one has for the process, the more successful one will be.
