There are three styles of grammar used by PianoWorld in its use of the phrase "Piano Teachers [sic] Forum". It's:

1. "Piano Teachers Forum" on the breadcrumbs above.
2. "Piano Teacher's Forum" on the forum title. This I think is incorrect. That means it's the forum owned by one piano teacher.
3. "For Piano Teacher's" it announces under the title. This is the most egregious. I think PW means "For Piano Teachers" in the same way that "apples are for eating" not "apple's are for eating".

I know, people hate this. But if I kid constantly played a C major scale sometimes using C flat, sometimes C natural, and sometimes C sharp, you would correct him or her. Just had to mention, it was killing me.

Really, I'm not trying to be a jerk. (It just comes naturally.) I just felt the need to point it out. Sorry.

It has been pointed out before. You are right. No need to apologise.

Your right, but as long as their are ten misteak's or less its ok.
