I am very sorry to say that A. Bruce Milne, 73, died Wednesday (Feb. 10, 2010) at his home. More info...

Bruce Milne(Jun, 2002) Bruce lives with his wife Christine in Fairfield Harbour, a gated waterfront community just outside of New Bern, North Carolina. They have lived there for about a year, moving to New Bern from the Finger Lakes area of New York State. Bruce is a 72-year-old retired school librarian and history teacher who plays mostly for his own "amazement".

Musical Background: Back in the late 1950's, I went into town to buy a harmonica and came home with a small Baldwin spinet organ. Took some lessons from a great teacher who was a theatre organ aficionado, and had a 3-manual Wurlitzer theatre organ in his studio, along with a Hammond B-3.

From 1981 to 1991 I never touched a keyboard, then was visiting a mall one day and saw a Technics keyboard on display. Have been trying to "relearn" what little I knew prior to 1981 ever since. I use fake books, and all my recordings are done live. Haven't mastered laying down tracks yet. I used a computer program called Noteworthy Composer to enter notation, and leave a space at the bottom of the printed page for notes about the PSR-2000 setup for each song.

Before purchasing the PSR-2000, I had a Technics, Casio and Yamaha PSR-730. I play with the full fingered mode, as I like to experiment with counter melodies, etc. Listening to all the other great keyboardists that have submitted their work to this project, I place myself pretty much at the bottom of the talent pool, but think it's great that we can learn so much from each other, regardless of our skill level.

Note: in fall of 2004, Bruce purchased the new PSR-3000. His 3rd volume was recorded on the PSR-3000. In November, 2008, Bruce has now moved up to a Tyros3.
