Had some friends come out to visit me from Atlanta recently. they started out on multi-lane interstate highways, then a 4 lane parkway, the two lane pavement, then a single lane gravel road. Their city car couldn't handle the last 1/2 mile, so they parked and walked. Only to find a note on my door - "Sorry we missed you, gone camping for the weekend to get away from it all!"

FInally got my print version, so expressmag delivered. Issue 107. What I discovered? Reinecke arranged Corelli for piano - there is a Sarabande in the sheet music section. A search at imslp revealed the entire Corelli/Reinecke album of 24 pieces.

Having been a subscriber ever since I started playing, I find that the scores in some issues don't do much for me, while other issues are chock-full of pieces that I really want to play (many of which I have played). So far issue 107 hasn't caught my fancy, but issue 103 was solid gold.

No sign yet of No. 106, the issue promised when I subscribed via ExpressMag waaay back in January, but I'm happy to hold the magazine in my hands.

I had almost abandoned all hope of getting the magazine but saw it had made it to the PNW and lo and behold it was sitting in my mailbox when I got home. Just issue 107. Express mags had said the two issues were mailed seperately so hoping 106 arrives soon. First time subscribing-looks like a great mag.

So happy for the new PNW subscribers. Happy reading and playing.
I always try to use the beginner pieces as sight reading, and chose one intermediate as part of my 1 of 2 pieces, the advance piece I just use it to listen and follow the score!

Perhaps it was alphabetical: the Washingtons came near the end of the queue.

😬 so happy to hear this..it was my feeling when I first found the magazine. I still get excited when a new edition is out. So great to see new readers, I am glad I shared.

I got 106, in addition to 107, even though I ordered the magazine from ExpressMag only 6 weeks ago.

I ordered the app version from pocketmags and have printed out several of the beginner level pieces to learn. I love how it is interactive with included audio that you can just press and play. I determine which pieces I’d like to learn after listening to the recordings which I find very helpful and enjoyable, although I found an inconsistency with one piece compared with the recording. It wasn’t a big deal though. I also like how they tell you what to watch out for and give you tips on how to play certain parts. And they give a little background on the composer and the song. Only gripe is that they’re not a monthly!

The magazine gets me to play songs I wouldn’t have chosen for myself and therefore broadens my repertoire, which is great. All in all, a great publication and well worth the money, especially when they have sales, it’s a no brainer. Thumbs up and highly recommend.

🤣 I have 2 wishes: monthly and pre 55 issues are digitized- I love many of the modern pieces.

Ok, if we’re talking about wishes, then I have another one. I’d like them to publish a “Play Beginner” special edition, in the tradition of their “Play Intermediate” special edition. grin

...because I can’t handle the intermediate pieces yet lol.

Pianist magazine recently joined this thread, so I hope they will make your second wish come true soon.

Won’t be long before you can tackle the intermediate. Some of the intermediates aren’t too hard.
