Welcome to For Love of Piano! Some of you follow my family blog Drops From My Cup where I do a "Musical Monday" post every Monday. Judging from my stats, those posts have the highest number of hits from people in all different parts of the world. Also, I have had some requests to cover certain topics more in depth, so I have decided to make a separate blog for my musical "expositions." I'm not yet sure if I will continue the Musical Monday posts over there, but this blog is intended to be "all things musical for the pianist and the piano teacher." I am looking forward to sharing some of what I have learned and am still learning as I strive to become a better pianist and teacher. I am passionate about music theory and music history, and I look forward to communicating some of that passion to you. I also plan to share some tips for playing piano duets. Being married to a pianist, I have constant practice in that area. :) I have (hopeful) aspirations for many special things I'd like to do on this site, and I hope you'll enjoy being a part of it!
This will not be a blog where I simply post links to other sites. I want to inspire you to be the best musician you can be, using my own (limited) knowledge and experience, and drawing from the experience of others (both living and deceased) who have risen the bar of music to that wonderful plane of excellence.
"The aim and final end of music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul." ~Johann Sebastian Bach
