I’m not too focused on the scores, they’re a nice bonus to me. Looks like I’ll mostly read PM for advice, technique etc and IP for news on who’s who, and more importantly, who’s playing what and where.

*clears throat* But I’m totally open for donations of fangirl-worthy past articles on certain personages!

I'm a long-time subscriber to both. They are quite different. Pianist Magazine is more of a "hands-on", with instructional articles, scores and a CD (for all levels). They also have articles about artists, etc. I have an (almost) complete collection since issue 1.
International Piano is more focused on articles about artists, competitions, CD reviews, etc., although they do usually include a few scores, but nothing like Pianist Magazine.
As a piano student, if you were to subscribe to only one, I would definitely recommend Pianist Magazine over International Piano. Both are excellent, just a different focus. I love them both.
Both are available as digital editions at considerable savings.
Too bad Piano Today and Sheet Music Magazine were unable to continue publication for financial reasons. They were real gems. Not to mention Jazz Player magazine and Jazz Improv magazine, both of which were excellent but went by the wayside, also for financial reasons (i.e. not enough subscribers!) Piano magazines need our support! Get them while you can. As a former journalist, I can tell you that print journalism is getting more challenging all the time.

I've seen back issues of Piano Today on eBay. Do you know anything about it? Does it contain enough learning material for a piano student that it might be worthwhile picking up some back issues?

Depends on your interest - Piano Today had a lot of scores and articles about composers, performers, etc. Of course on ebay, it's caveat emptor, always.
Sheet Music Magazine was amazing - I was very sad to see them go, but I was able to pick up some collections on ebay. It's almost all sheet music, mostly piano-vocal-guitar type, and a lot of music you probably won't find anywhere else - show tunes, original collections of the great songwriters, etc.
I have a couple hundred of them - I use them for sight reading and never get bored.

Interesting. Did Piano Today have articles on technique and learning piano, as Pianist magazine has?

Yes, they would have a few instructional articles each issue. A friend of mine used to write for them and do jazz-oriented instruction.
However, they were gone before the real explosion of online access that is available today with Pianist Magazine. If that's your interest, I'd say your money (and time) would be better spent picking up digital back-issues of Pianist Magazine. (Of course, dependent on what you can find in the used market. Piano Today had a lot of interesting material that you probably won't find anywhere else).
Anybody remember Keyboard Magazine? Back in the day, it was a good magazine, before print magazines became geared to people who couldn't read more than two paragraphs at a time!

Pianist magazine is great. I'll pick one up from the newsstand every time I see a new issue. The pieces they feature every month is a good way to discover new repertoire to try out, and comes with a CD so you know how its supposed to sound. It helps me to decide if this piece is something I want to work on or now. I didn't get the digital subscription because I don't like practicing from an iPad.

Email ad that was sent to me. But it should be listed as 99 cents when searching for it. Try this link.

That is a good deal for 0.99$.

On that site, you can also try a free sample. Signup takes 30 seconds and simply required email and password.

The zoom +/- feature at the bottom right of the screen is useful.

Haha, I am loving the conversation here...#support these mags. Anyone who needs help contact pocketmags, as they are the publishers. I use the app on my iPad as part of my learning tools. I also have the international mag for pure reading, as commented by many above.

Sometimes pocketmags has the discount, and they will attach it to your app/account. Just remember to cancel the iPad app’s renewal though. I just paid a lovely low renewal price for both magazines. Their tech support was brilliant.

I am really hoping they will upload the earlier magazines, purely for the learning material and the scores/embedded music.

I don’t have any affiliation, but what to spread the joy as an adult learner.

I guess most of you aren't old enough to remember "Etude Magazine":

The Etude Magazine: 1883-1957

Etude Magazine was published by Theodore Presser Company between 1883 and 1957. It was a staple for music teachers throughout the country, providing articles related to music history, new developments in music, and practical teaching techniques, as well as musical scores from the classics and new pieces for beginning to advanced students. Begun as an aid for piano teachers, the magazine grew to include information and literature for vocal and instrumental enthusiasts as well. Not only is the series important to the musician, but it provides an insight into the culture itself, including the impact of the development of the car, radio, and television, and expands to world music and the influence of world wars on that culture.
