Clavier Companion Magazine name change

Clavier Companion Magazine name change - 07/29/19 05:23 AM

I just finished attending the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy (NCKP), held in suburban Chicago over 4 days. It is put on by the Frances Clark Center for Keyboard Pedagogy, based in the hamlet of Kingston, New Jersey. Each of us 800 attendees received a copy of the current summer edition of Keyboard Companion Magazine - published by the Frances Clark Center - only suddenly the magazine has a new name: it is now called simply, The Piano Magazine.

One wonders whether this implies a new, broader focus to this teacherly magazine. Time will tell.

I was unaware of the change. Thanks for the heads up.

Perhaps it is a sign that we English speakers are moving away from our ancient and enduring love of alliteration.

How unimaginative.

I thought the same. There's a great restaurant not far from where I live, which used to have a rather quirky name - but at least it was memorable and everyone knew which place you were talking about. New owners changed the name to something bland and generic and now I can never remember it.
