Our Story

The Piano Bench Magazine was started by Karen Gibson as a passion project for piano teachers back in October 2013.

Every month, Karen put together a magazine based around a topic and featuring a feature interview with a prominent piano teacher plus articles from teachers around the world. She even added piano teacher recipes!

It now has 67 issues in its back catalogue. The Piano Bench Mag presents articles with ideas and resources for piano teachers.

Whether it is a review of an app, a list of websites with solutions to problems common to piano teachers everywhere or a resource to help improve lessons The Piano Bench Mag is the place to find information in one convenient spot.

In 2019, the Piano Bench Magazine found a new home at Top Music Co where Tim and his team are now working on a new look and feel that will compliment the fantastic work started by Karen.

The Piano Bench Mag is THE resource for piano teachers looking to upgrade their teaching, grow their studios, deliver more creative lessons and have a bigger impact on the world.
