Some music lover has rightly said, "You can't overdose on music." And when the instrument is something as soothing and mellifluous as a piano, the more one plays, the merrier it is to the ears. No wonder, classical musical virtuosos like Beethoven, Bach and Chopin betted heavily on its sonorous keys to create everlasting compositions that continues to wow the music lovers to this day. That said, playing a piano is no cakewalk and it takes some serious skill and arduous practice to master the keys and chords. Now only if you thought that Europe was the haven for pianists, know that even America has produced some deft piano players whose musical repertoire and skill has got them a place among the greats. Nat King Cole, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans and Art Tatum are just a few examples of the great pianists who called America their home. Let us delve deeper into the oft-frequented world of pianists and explore the biographies, trivia, and facts about America’s famous pianists ever known to any man.
