‘Sounding Board’ has been created to provide a channel for everyone with an interest in the Harpsichord to share their experiences, their ideas, and their knowledge. It gives everyone an opportunity to ask questions on a variety of topics including technique and repertoire, as well as on technical matters. Please keep sending in your contributions, large or small, serious or frivolous, the seemingly ordinary as well as any of an unusual nature. All contributions and comments welcome, please send to or to .
