  • Hi, my name is Penni. Let me take a minute and outline what we do at Hear the Music Play. I’ve been obsessed with playing and teaching music since I was 10 years old, piano performance and pedagogy being my specialties (Utah State University 1983). I’ve had hundreds of students over the years (piano and organ) who have at some point asked for my advice on what to buy to support their learning. Hear the Music Play is run by myself and has added other specialists as we have grown, working to simply provide the best picks, regardless of affiliate or advertising potential. We don’t accept free product or compensation for specific product placement. For further information click here
