Ask A Question


PLEASE DO NOT ASK REGARDING PIANO APPRAISALS, EVALUATIONS, BUYING, SELLING etc. I HAVE VERY LITTLE KNOWLEDGE IN THIS MATTER. Sorry, but I WILL N-O-T ANSWER A-N-Y EVALUATION QUESTIONS, so PLEASE do not send these. However - I would LOVE TO ANSWER any questions regarding piano lessons, learning to play the piano, online piano courses, local piano tutors etc.

Experience in the area

I've been playing the piano for the last 30 years. Piano tutor and avid collector of so called "online" piano courses


BSc Aeronautics, MSc Computers, MBA Marketing - none related to piano teaching, I'm afraid. Though non-accredited, I've been teaching piano for 17 years.

Hi,  Nothing gets me writing quicker than talk about Hammonds...    The reverb should definitely make a difference in sound. I have it on a B3 too, a friend on her 22H, 122, and Trek Bass. We both love
