Does anyone know any good piano/music pages? Maybe ones about schools, sheet music, general information, theory, composers, blah blah blah ect? Here are a couple of mine that I like to visit alot.

1.)Free Classical Music Links: http://www.freesheetmusicguide.com/classical.htm
2.)Piano Pedagogy Message Board: http://www.sunflower.org/~bhugh/messageboard.spm
3.)Brent Hugh's Piano Home page: http://griffon.mwsc.edu/~bhugh/index.html
4.)Royal Conservatory of Music/Glenn Gould school: http://www.rcmusic.ca/index.html
5.)The Chopin Files: http://www.chopinfiles.com/
6.) Greatest Free Sheet Music Archive I've ever seen: http://www.klassikdatenbank.de/en/werke.php
7.)Piano Education Page: http://www.unm.edu/~loritaf/pnoedmn.html

There are some more I know of, but I'll list more later on. Those were just some popular ones I know.

By the way, does anyone know anything about the Glenn Gould school and where it is? The site doesn't
seem to give too much information about it, but I would love to attend some day. I think it might be in
Canada.

Glenn Gould in regards to music:

The problem begins when one forgets the artificiality of it all, when one neglects to pay homage to those designations that to our minds-to our reflect senses, perhaps-make of music an analyzable commodity. The trouble begins when we start to become so impressed by the strategies of ours systematized thought that we forget that it does relate to an obverse, that it is hewn from negation, that it is but a very small security against the void of negation which surrounds it.

I'm pretty sure it's part of RCM's schools in Toronto. I think if you contacted RCM through the contact link on the site, they'll be able to tell you. The RCM has a national exam program here in Canada, and uses universities, colleges etc. to conduct exams, but I believe it physically houses itself in the Toronto, Ontario area. See the addresses in the website.

Zelda:

The Glenn Gould Professional School is a division of the Royal Conservatory of Music, located in Toronto, Ontario. I found that out by going to the link you gave us.

I had just found that link the morning. I guess I didn't really visit the other sections, just the Glenn Gould section. I should do some more looking around there because from what I've heard that school is extremely useful to a pianist. They set you right off on your career as a musician and make sure you get a job.

the glenn gould professional school is a division of the RCM...but it is a full time school...you can get a degree from the school and they offer post graduate programs in teaching and performance
it is designed for student who wish to persue a carreer in music...and by all accounts its a very demanding and excellent school

Another good one if all you want to do is just listen to classical music www.classicalarchives.com its a great site for finding almost any peice by any composer. A large, almost endless selection. I often go there to find out what the music I am going to try to play sounds like if I don't have the recording. Or, when I want to hear a peice once or twice to decide if I want to buy the recording. But remember: midi files are never as good as an actual recording!
