Titanic Piano Blog

In 2012 for the centennial of Titanic‘s tragic sinking, I conducted extensive research on the ship’s music venues and design, the Steinway pianos and the bands’ repertoire and wrote the Titanic Piano blog that is now archived and still available!

Consider this your invitation to stay connected!

P.S. The artwork throughout my blog is from a painting (shown above) by renowned Nova Scotian artist, Holly Carr, who paints on silk. She also painted the cover art for several of my piano collections.
