Why Do You Play the Piano?

Show Us Your Piano Room!
There is a long running thread on our piano forums where members have been posting pictures of their piano rooms. Piano room is all encompassing, so if you have a digital piano, keyboards, acoustic piano(s), anything like that qualifies.

The thread is 37 pages long right now. Feel free to add your own, but PLEASE be sure to upload your picture(s) to our servers. Too many times we find other services drop the pictures leaving a blank place where the were.

Piano World is Free, But It Isn't Free

It seems a lot of people assume because we don't charge anything to access Piano World or our piano forums that it's just my hobby, or maybe it's magically supported. It's neither.

Piano World is the primary source I rely on to support myself and my family, it is what I do for a living.   It's how I pay my part timer, and my suppliers (for our online store). It's how I pay my bills.

While it's true that our advertisers are a help, many of them have been cutting back, and this being summer sales in our online store ( are very slow. If you enjoy Piano World and/or the Piano Forums, please consider showing your support.
