The 21st Century Piano Project
10/1/2005

PMAI is working in partnership with the piano community of teachers, retailers, technicians and publishers to survey their respective organizations. Current piano shoppers and recent piano purchasers within the last five years will also be surveyed. In addition to PMAI, this project is supported by NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), PTG (Piano Technicians Guild), and RPMDA (Retail Print Music Dealers Association).

The piano community has long relied on assumptions and anecdotes without concrete data to support them. The findings from the surveys will be used to help develop a strategic plan for the future based on accurate data. The 21st Century Piano Project is unique in that it involves every segment of the piano community, which is defined as those professionals and those organizations whose financial well-being is affected by AN INCREASE or DECREASE in the number of people who play the piano.

To complete the piano retailer survey, simply click on this URL or copy and paste it into your website browser to access the survey. The survey is now ready to complete and will remain on the site until October 31, 2005.

Thank you for taking time to complete this very important survey. The results will be reported early next year in industry trade magazines and association publications.
