That was pretty obvious ;).

The only fear I have is that it put a lot higher demands on availability and administration. It is also possible that a lot more pianists would be interested and put some more load on us (positive problem of course). At the start, we must limit the number of pianist in the partner program so that it matches the income.

Robert you are right. But I don't know howmuch your costs now are at the moment. Is it so high that you need to ask people for money? The bandwith is huge on pianosociety :shock:

There are more outcomes than incomes for sure and I fill the gap from my own pocket. But that is not the point here. It is the possibility for pianists to make money out of their efforts. Other choices are a) CD contract, b) Concert playing, c) teaching and a perhaps a couple of other.

We all know how narrow the path for the striving pianists is and perhaps this develop to an alternate method. Such an attempt shortcuts the monopolitic Music Industry which has developed to giants with a huge administration cost. PianoSociety is a threat/possibility to them and they know it (I have been contacted). Internet and the cheap recording technique is the driving factors.

Cool....
I suggest you change the link in your footer accordingly. It still does not work.

Well, I think we got it started in 2004 already and I have probably spent like 1000 hours on Piano Society so far (1 hour per day in 2 1/2 year in avarage). Adding Chris, Erik and Joff's time and we probably reach 2000 hours. The entire site is built on pure enthusiasm and I am willing to discuss this and similar Piano Society issues and ideas on this forum.

With over 1000 recordings, I think we got it pretty right from the beginning.

There is a good chance for the Society to get advertised at Texas Christian University.
My teacher,Tamas Ungar,requested the links and said he would send them to the director of the school of music for announcement
