Download this folder and all of its contents onto your desktop and open the site from there. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e9ahyw9ddnhhcah/AAAbw_HXCXR2rriPCBHF1waNa?dl=0 (Open Viano.html for access to the home page). See the home page for the gist of why I made this site and how to go about using it. The intended audience is literally anyone who has any desire to pick up the piano or any instrument but doesn’t have access to one or the time to dedicate to all the theory behind it. Ideally, going through the pages in order, this site can teach you how to play a piano in 5 minutes or...

Don Foresta – Guest Speaker

Posted by on Nov 16, 2015 in NMD 100 Blog | 0 comments

In one form or another and on several occasions, I’ve heard the story of Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds radio drama as it played out to a fear-stricken America in the 1930s. I had never fully grasped its repercussions until that short documentary though; the testimonies from actual listeners made the difference. In the same regard, I’d never really given any thought to the possibility of such a panic happening today. We live in much the same high-tension, stress-ridden society today as Americans did in the early-mid 20th century. But does our technology allow for...
