Keyboard Magazine Takes Home Four Awards at 2005 San Francisco Honorary Publication Awards

Music Player Network, the world''s leading music instrument publishing company, is proud to announce that Keyboard Magazine, one of the company’s premier titles, took home four awards at this week’s 2005 San Francisco Honorary Publication Awards. Keyboard won awards for Best How-To Feature, Best Opening Spread, Best Table of Contents, and Best Use of Single Photograph, beating out big-budget magazines such as Wired, Surface, and Desert Living.

To celebrate its 30 year anniversary as the only magazine in America dedicated to music technology for the recording and performing keyboard player, Keyboard unveiled a refreshing new design this past February at the Winter NAMM Show. Keyboard’s cover has been graced in recent months by the hottest artists on the planet such as Keane, Gavin DeGraw, John Legend, Muse, and Tori Amos. The newly designed magazine also includes new features and editorial content to appeal to a wider range of reader – from hobbyist to professional.

"These awards affirm that we've achieved what we set out to do with our recent re-launch," says Ernie Rideout, Editor in Chief of Keyboard Magazine. "Our goal was to make Keyboard as appealing on the newsstand as the most popular magazines, yet still deliver content that helps our readers make better music."
