  1. Our 'In house' composer Keri Degg attended a musical weekend some time ago and was fortunate enough to have access whilst there to a stunning Steinway grand piano. So astonishingly beautiful was its action that she went on it around 10.30pm and when she looked at her watch again it was almost 2am!

    Ever since then, she's yearned for one of these and has started stalking.. ('ahem...FOLLOWING) Steinway on twitter. Here's the latest attempt to woo a piano....

    A Sonnet to Steinway

    There once was a maiden named Keri

    Who ought've been awfully merry

    but the piano she played had left her dismayed

    and was really only fit for to bury.

     

    Her practice routine quite secure,

    with scales with two hands and far more,

    diminished, pentatonic, whole tone, chromatic,

    she played until fingers were sore.

     

    So one day on twitter, she started to witter

    to Steinway and sons and their wares

    She grovelled and pleaded and told of her woe

    in the hope that a piano they'd share.

     

    Having played on a Steinway before

    at a musical weekend near 't' shore

    She fell hook line and sinker for that feeling to tinker

    and longed for that feeling once more.

     

    So please Mr Steinway don't tease

    I promise to practice and please

    I'll tell of your name and great exploits you'll see

    if you'll just send a Steinway to me!

  2. After listening carefully to feedback from our customers (thank you for your lovely feedback regarding our pieces, you are truly a lovely bunch!) it seems that many customers like the option of PDF email delivery. This is particularly useful of course to our overseas customers, or indeed for musicians wanting their music in a hurry......not to mention the benefit of highly reduced price for the DIY approach!

    Therefore we are (as we write!) adding the PDF edition option to our existing catalogue. He have recently upgraded our sysytems and can now produce a high quality PDF image. These will be emailed to you (after you have gone through the checkout) as PDF files and as MP3 tracks if the piece is supplied with demonstration / backing tracks.

    Look out for new sheet music coming very soon..................
