I've not been much for hosting parties, but I have a new Yamaha C2 and would like to host a piano party...at first with close friends, then maybe something more open. If there's already a posting on this, lead me there...I couldn't find one.

Could somone explain the logistics in implementing a successful, fun party for both the guests and the host? Should it be a free for all piano jam? Should there be scheduled concert-y time? Just scratching for ideas. Should we hire a performer for a small concert?

Thanks for any ideas!


Forget about the notes...play the music.

Hi Kreerk,

These posts should give you some idea of how forums parties come together.

The primary ingredients are:

~ People who share a love of piano music (regardless of their ability to play)
~ A piano (duh), hopefully in tune and good working condition
~ Some food and drink (with participants typically contributing by bringing some food and/or drink with them)
~ A relaxed, let's have fun atmosphere.
~ We usually encourage everyone to take a turn at playing, regardless of whether they just started learning, or just released their 5th concert CD
~ Pictures, lots of pictures. If a grand piano is involved, pictures should include a group shot, with as many people under/over/around the piano as possible.

Most of the parties are very informal, although some have included guest concert artists and printed programs. I think people are more likely to relax and enjoy themselves if it's low-key.

Here are some previous parties, and suggestions:
