AZ PIANO REVIEWS!: About Us - Tim & Erik Praskins - Digital Piano Reviews

About Us - Tim & Erik Praskins

Tim Praskins
Hello...my name is Tim Praskins. I am an experienced Piano, Keyboard, Organ and Guitar Teacher for over 40 years, as well as pro musician, arranger, & composer, and an expert digital piano consultant to the PUBLIC. I am based out of Arizona, USA (where the Grand Canyon is!).

*My son Erik & I have put many hours, months, and years of effort into this digital piano blog and we don't do it because we need to make money by linking you to an Amazon retail digital piano site or other retail site like so many other so-called "reviewers" do, just so they can make affiliate commission money. Directing you to retail consumer sites like Amazon means that those kind of "digital piano review sites" cannot be neutral or even helpful about their so-called advice because they are wanting you to buy something on Amazon (regardless of actual quality) so they can make money. I do not need to link to a site like Amazon or eBay (which are not necessarily the best prices out there). However, we can and will help you get lower prices on new digital pianos (UP TO 45% OFF) once you finally decide on what is best for you...and we can help you get there. Be careful of reviewers who are affiliate linked to Amazon, eBay, or others because what you read on most of those sites is probably done by people who have never played any of the pianos they talk about. They can steal content from me or consumer reviews on Amazon and then regurgitate that content to make it seem like they know what they are talking about...but they normally do not know...and even consumer/owner reviews come from people who normally have little experience with pianos.

After being in the music industry for over 40 years and having taught private and group lessons for thousands of music students on many instruments, I have worked with nearly every type and brand of acoustic & digital piano (and guitar) and talk about piano stuff you may find interesting. I blog about piano lessons, piano industry news, music technology, new and used pianos, and do in-depth reviews of many different digital pianos, and far more than anyone else. Check out my latest post on the homepage or use the search bar on the upper right side of my blog to find previous digital piano reviews, because there are lots of them! Just enter the brand and/or model number of the digital piano you're searching for, and if you don''t see it, I continue to add new reviews all the time.

I am a person who loves to play piano (grands, uprights, digitals), pro synth's and keyboards, organ (B3 jazz, church, pop), guitar (acoustic, electric, bass), and likes many styles of music. I really like to share my product knowledge, experiences and my joy of playing music instruments with others. I've passed on my love of music to my four children who all play piano as well as other instruments. In fact, two of my daughters are piano teachers and one of them is also a top pianist here in Arizona and accompanies large orchestra's and choirs and does music for weddings with her husband who is an accomplished guitarist and violinist. My wife is a vocalist as well as experienced in playing woodwinds and reed instruments, so there's plenty of music in my family, to say the least.

Erik Praskins
My son, Erik, is also quite experienced with playing piano and has a great wealth of information when it comes to digital pianos and understands them so he can also help you when it comes to many of your piano questions. Erik works with me in his own local music studio and is happy to help you when you call for advice and information. Erik has been married quite awhile to his high school sweetheart Michelle and they have two young children. In fact one of them, named Dylan, was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia when he was an infant and given a 15% chance to live until his next birthday. But through many miraculous events he is CANCER FREE and he is seven years old now,. However, many developmental struggles are effecting him having been caused from the extreme chemo & radiation treatments he originally received, and it will be a long & difficult road with speech problems (the lack of being able to think & converse normally), bad eyesight with eye problems, and overall physical and mental growth issues. Read more about Dylan and see a short video about him HERE on this link.

Music is my passion! I also compose, arrange and record music using digital recording hardware and software and recording a song can be very enjoyable. It's not difficult to do anymore using some of the latest "easy to use" recording features on a variety of the newest digital pianos as well as inexpensive external recording gear. Playing music is very relaxing and for some people is like a virtual time machine because when you play a favorite piece of music, you can remember when you first heard or played it and it takes you back to that time instantly...at least it does for me:).  So I play music often and I recommend it to everyone I meet, no matter what age they are. I've helped thousands of kids and adults up to 90+ yrs old get into music so playing music is an adventure few people ever regret. Don't miss your chance and be sure to do it with a quality instrument.

** Please Note: All my reviews are independent of any others on the internet and are done with great research, time, energy, and personal experience with each instrument and I have played and listened to them. I can tell you if you are getting the lowest price to make a purchase should you decide you want a new digital piano. I can also order many new pianos direct from some of the best brands for less money, free shipping, and no sales tax if that would help you. No one pays me for my reviews including manufacturers, distributors, resellers, etc. I am independent of any digital piano manufacturer and do not work for them. All my reviews are my opinions are done by myself for the public at large. Also, I reserve and exercise the right to update my reviews as new information comes my way through further examination of these pianos or new information is brought to my attention from the manufacturers or users. My desire and goal is to refer you to any brand and model of new piano, digital or acoustic, if that brand and model meets your musical goals, budget, and overall needs. My advice is FREE.

Thank you!
