Need a vacation for FREE? Join us online for a Virtual Vacation Cruise to Europe, August 28th thru September 12th, 2005.

Yep, I'm going as a TOURIST, but I'll have the unbelievable opportunity to meet many of my online students face-to-face for the very first time! It's going to be an exciting trip for ME, and as I'm able I will be posting daily updates, pics and video clips...right here...for my family, PMMO members and musical friends around the world to experience and enjoy!

The certain highlight of this trip will occur in LONDON, September 11th, 2005, when PMMO Members in United Kingdom converge upon the Belsize Music Rooms for an all day 'PMMO Meet-n-Greet-n-Play Day!'

We have some very talented PMMO members from the U.K. and I can barely contain myself for patiently waiting to see and hear them play in person! It's going to be a FUN experience for ALL of us!!

If you are a visitor to PianoMagic.com, but have not yet become a member of our happy piano gang, be sure to bookmark this page, to at least join us online for a much needed vacation...a PIANO MAGIC VIRTUAL CRUISE VACATION to EUROPE!

If you take a notion to learn how to unleash the performer hiding within your own soul, become a member of Piano Magic and join us inside! It's far too much FUN to miss out...so don't do it!

All following VIDEO is downloadable for ALL users, and is purposely optimized for minimum acceptable quality to make a fast download, yet retain acceptable viewing quality.

I hope you enjoy the trip. If not, too bad for you! I'll be having a GREAT time with or without you! sticking tongue out

 

Instructions for Viewing Video:

Dial-Up Users must...MUST download:

  • All video files are optimized to be as small as possible, yet still retain acceptable viewing quality. By virtue of a slower Dial-Up connection, files automatically take longer to download. You can still share in the fun by scheduling your downloads to occur when you will be away from your PC for 30 to 60 minutes. Begin the download, then take a break, play your piano, watch a movie, take yourself out to dinner, or just go to bed and view it in the morning!

    Depending on your connection speed, 1 MB of data over a Dial-Up connection will download in 4 to 8 minutes. 4 MB of data will take 4 times as long.

  • To download video to your PC, Right Click the photo and select "SAVE TARGET AS". I suggest creating a folder on your desk top called "Virtual Vacation", and save all video files into that folder. That way, you'll be able to easily find them for viewing, and delete them when you're done.

 

High-Speed DSL or Cable Users:

  • DSL or Cable Modem Users can Left Click directly on the photos below for instant video playback.

    To download video to your PC, follow directions for Dial-Up Users (above).

September 11, 2005 - Belsize Music Rooms in London, England - Meeting PMMO Members from United Kingdom face-to-face for the very first time, and hearing what they have to say to me, my friends and other PMMO Members!

(To hear them play, continue to the EXTRA INFO box, below.)

EXTRA INFO:

After the video above, the Following Videos are highlights of my visit
with Piano Magic Members from United Kingdom,
as it occurred September 11, 2005.

As with all above videos, Dial-Up users must DOWNLOAD (right click and 'Save Target As')

Remember, none of us had EVER met each other face-to-face before this day! ALL our interaction prior to 9/11/2005 has occurred through the PMMO Member Forums. Each person is probably quite nervous about meeting ME for the first time...then imagine how they probably feel with ME looking over their shoulder as they play...and RECORDING IT ON VIDEO!! YIKES!!! Under those challenging conditions, they ALL did GREAT!! I am extremely PROUD of the accomplishments of my students in United Kingdom, and look forward to see what else they will be able to incorporate musically in the coming months.

Just to call attention for the folks who are bound to overlook it...there is an EXTREME ABSENCE OF WRITTEN MUSIC from the piano! What's more, your music played 'by ear' is more interesting than most of the written arrangements that shackle 'music readers'! For less than TWO YEARS maximum playing experience, you're ALL doing GREAT...exactly as I expected you would!!

VERY GOOD JOB, FOLKS!! THANK YOU!!
