You Cannot Play
Fifteen Thousand Pieces
on the ordinary Piano. No one ever had command
of such a repertoire.
A life time of study and practice has enabled the
great artists to play at their best, less than 100 pieces.
The Inner-Player places at your command any com
position ever written.
You can play Opera, Sacred, Classical Music, or
rag-time-any kind, any piece at once, without study
or without practice, on the Inner-Player, and you can
play as well as the experienced Pianists who have
studied and worked for years to master a few pieces.
If you have a Piano we can take it in exchange.
Balance can be paid in monthly installments.
Everything known in Music.
