The Collaborative Piano Blog Facebook Page Is Now an Open Forum for Members/Fans

One of the coolest things about writing the Collaborative Piano Blog over the last four and a half years is being able to connect with so many people in the musical world, hearing so many opinions, and having a lot of fun at the same time. I get lots of emails from people all over the world, many of them from people asking questions that I simply don't have answers to. Many of you still feel that there needs to be an open forum where people from the collaborative piano community can connect on a wide variety of matters. Therefore, as of now I would like to open up the Collaborative Piano Blog Facebook Page (which just broke the 600 fan mark!) to the community as a place where you can:
  • ask questions to the readership about a wide variety of CP-related subjects, such as the best places to study, recommended teachers, suggested audition rep, and best business practices either in a discussion group or on the wall
  • post information about upcoming events on the wall
  • post concert programs, videos and pictures
  • post links for programs
  • ask questions about degree programs and summer festivals
  • find a pianist in a given geographic area (after all, the membership is largely a who's who of capable pianists from around the globe)
I would like to keep the tone positive, so if you're looking to expose an unscrupulous employer, please use the People for the Ethical Treatment of Accompanists Group instead. For now, I would like to give fans a wide berth to talk about and post the things they feel are important.


I would like the discussion to remain on topic, so I'll check the content of the page regularly, and if anyone posts anything in the least bit spammy, I won't hesitate to remove the content.

So if you haven't already become a member of the Collaborative Piano Blog Facebook Page, I invite you to become a fan right away and join the conversation!
