"From Paper Rolls to MIDI"
Hi All, I'm not sure if Allison Wallace is in high school or college.
She might even be in junior high school, but she wrote a 10-page report
and created a web site that endeavors to trace the history and
development of the player piano "from paper rolls to MIDI".
The website is located at: http://clix.to/missallison (It's one of
those "free sites", so expect lots of unsolicited new windows to open
as you go through the site.)
The reason I'm bring this site to your attention is to let you see for
yourself what facts seem to stick out to young people. I must say I was
surprised to read some of the information she presents as 'facts'. And
I think her report shows a real need for 'setting the record straight'
about player pianos. I mean, if we can't even come to an agreement
about the history of player pianos, how is anyone outside of the
industry ever going to figure it out?

[ requirement for a class in MIDI technology I took this summer.
[ It was based on a 10-page paper I wrote about the player piano."
