WORRYING ABOUT WHAT IS OUT OF YOUR CONTROL. NEVER EVER HELPS ANYONE There will be difficult times and tough situations in your life. Everyone has there share of worry but worrying about something that is out of your control does not solve or accomplish anything. You cannot control decisions that others make or forecast an unlucky life event that happens to you. All you can do is decide what to do next and react to uncontrollable events. Although it is a big challenge to clear the mind of these thoughts, accepting what happens out of your control will free up your mind for positive and efficient energy. However, if there are things still within your control you need to be pro-active which can many times avert reaching a point where the control is taken from you and all that is left is to react.

Ask for Tim Paul or Jason BrunoThe Baldwin B252 Vertical Piano If you’re looking for the voice of a concert grand in a smaller body then look no further than Baldwin’s classic B252. The B252 is modeled after Baldwin’s largest vertical piano, and provides as much total soundboard area as Baldwin celebrated R1 grand piano. This piano features a special design that supports longer bass strings, which are more common in taller uprights and produce a rich and very resonant tone normally associated with a grand piano.Décor that fits anywhere The B252 is housed in a beautiful, classically-styled wooden enclosure that fits beautifully in any décor – from traditional to contemporary to school to rehearsal hall. The soundboard and rib material are constructed of spruce, while the precision-notched bridge material is made from hard rock maple. The carefully designed geometry of its Full Blow™ Direct Stealth Action delivers an exceptionally responsive touch. The European-style keys are made from genuine European spruce, and all corners of the keys are rounded and polished for an elegant, sophisticated look. The keys are also covered with a special coating that resists stains and chipping.The Baldwin B252 is available in Satin Ebony. aldwin

two trade shows in January starting with the NAMMSHOW which is the largest music convention in the world held every January in Anaheim California right next door to Disneyland. This year Piano Trends owner Tim Paul worked the show as an industry consultant for piano dealers looking to improve their social media and online presence. It was a meeting place to renew contacts and see new products for the coming year. There will be a few new Baldwin and Breitenbach and Casio Pianos in our 2017 future. A week after NAMM Piano Trends set up shop at IMEC or ILMEA depending on whom you speak. The Trends booth wa active in conversation with band and choir directors both from our immediate area and schools outside our districts in the market for musical equipment including pianos and digital labs. Phil was with us doing emergency band instrument repair for performing students. Possibly one of the major highlights was the live Facebook stream of Tim learning to play Trombone from Piano Trends and District 300 music teach Adam Brown. You can check it out by scrolling down Tim's Piano Trends Facebook page to Friday January 28th. If you were at either show comment or post a story of your experience.
