  1. Hi Anne, I found your blog though LinkedIn. I am a concert pianist and sommelier in the Catskills of New York. I am enjoying reading through your posts. If you have the change, you can learn about my current project, “HeLoved TheSoftPornOfTheCity” at It is a classical art rock opera based on our work with Danish composer Morten Skovgaard Danielsen. Have a great day! Kristen

  2. I have enjoyed reading about the Many Hands on One Piano post. I am interested in knowing how to get the arrangements to use within my studio, to help my students increase their experience of working as a group. Are the arrangements available somewhere for purchase?

    1. Thank you, Julie.

      I would suggest that you google the composers whose works you like from my post or click on the links if I’ve embedded them. Contact them about your interest and enquire how to get a copy of the score(s). kind regards, Anne
