Vendor Change Means Paywall Dropped To Access

December 8, 2019


A note from the Publisher:

A change in vendors means no paywall in the immediate future for

We were just advised that the vendor that handles the subscriptions and payments for will no longer service accounts of our size. Seems we were more trouble than it was worth for them to handle and they want to focus on larger accounts. Therefore we are turning off our paywall right away as opposed to waiting until the end of the month. I have instructed them to refund recent subscriptions that have processed within the last 30 days and cancel any recurring subscriptions.

As you know we rely on both reader subscriptions and advertisers to pay to produce For now there will be no paywall while I research other vendors and determine our options. For those who purchased lifetime subscriptions, your free access will remain once the paywall has been restored. For those who had a year-long subscription your access will be extended to the end of the term of your original commitment.

For those who would like an immediate refund of your subscription I am happy to oblige that while I work through this process. Please send me an email to with your name and the email address under your subscription. Also the day your subscription started and if it was for one year or lifetime and I will personally process your refund. The month-to month subscriptions under Tiny Pass – Piano have been cancelled as of today.

I appreciate the support of our readers and apologize for this sudden shift. Kinda caught me by surprise but we will move forward. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly via email at or by phone at 425-280-7620.
