AMICA’S EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS
The music and the “music makers” of the player piano era are part of our musical heritage. The fox trot, one step, rags and the classical and popular music of composers such as Rachmaninoff, Debussy and Gershwin are forever captured on music rolls made for playing on automatic musical instruments in homes, entertainment establishments and concert halls.
AMICA, est. 1963, is dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of this magical era of music. To this end, the AUTOMATIC MUSICAL INSTRUMENT COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION conducts educational activities such as our Adopt-A-Piano project, through concerts, historical papers, demonstrations and technical writings to enhance the understanding and appreciation of automatic music to our musical heritage. Help us to preserve your musical heritage by supporting the educational activities of AMICA.
