A Piano in Every Room

Place: Hancock Library, Hancock, NH (About 22 miles from Keene)

Price: Free
Ages: Older crowd

Rosamond van der Linde co-founded a music school unlike any other, blending love of music, love of people and a passionate commitment to education, and community service. “A Piano In Every Room” tells the astonishing tale of a family living in 42-room house with 34 pianos. The story includes Rosamond’s victory over childhood polio, while her husband, Rein van der Linde, survived the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. Their sheer courage created their destiny. Later, raising a remarkable musical family of seven pianists the parents shaped their own children’s lives, embraced their community, and grew into a cultural treasure for America, and friends around the world.

For close to forty years the entire family has been involved in teaching piano, building the music school, summer and adult camps all of which have been written up in books, magazines, The New York Times, Forbes Magazine, and profiled on PBS, New England Channel News, and CNN News. This has generated hundreds of questions as to how it all came about and how the van der Lindes did it. This book provides the answers by the founder herself. The story is about a dynamic family that created a music enterprise and thrived within it. The tale reveals a passion for piano, a delightful family story, and a unique learning experience.

Rosamond will make available for those who attend her readings to have an opportunity to participate in a free drawing for one of her new books “A Piano In Every Room”.
