Love Pianist

There is a wide variety of entertainment in each issue. I learn tips from letters to the editor, techniques from the staff, personalities from the featured interviews.

However, even without all of that each issue would still be worth the price of the publication if all I got out of it were the 40 pages of scores. The range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced, make these perfect for my sight reading practice, and they have become even better once the editors realized that popular song music is every bit as much music as the classical stuff and started to include popular pieces in the scores.

My only criticism is that when they publish something they call a review of pianos, it is a collection of manufacturer's advertising material, hardly a review in the usual sense of the word, and typically only of makes and models that are out of the reach of the average individual. You can read the same material in each manufacturer's website, and believe it or not.

If you are a good enough pianist to warrant the purchase of a piano costing north of six figures, you won't do it based on manufacturer propaganda. If you are wealthy enough for the six figure piano but don't play, who cares what the reviews say; it's only a status symbol at that point.

Goldmine of knowledge

I have enjoyed this digital magazine for several years and have found it to be a valuable resource. There is still material beyond my skill level, but it will thus continue to provide me material to use as I progress. Thanks to all the people who make this magazine possible!

Great idea; bad software

I was so looking forward to this publication — only to find that the app isn’t ready for prime time (in the U.S. anyway). Only two (out of approximately two dozen) attempts at reading from an issue have succeeded, because the pages won’t load properly: they’re variously . . . cut off in the middle, stretched out and unreadable, unscrollable, or simply blacked out. And there’s no help/support easily available even at the magazine’s website (nary a support mention). So I’ve asked for a full refund from Apple. Quite frustrating.
