What we do.

PianoTrax was created to provide an affordable way for singers and performers to work with high quality piano accompaniments without the challenges of getting together in person with a pianist.

Founded by music director and professional pianist, Thomas Griep. Some of the artists he has worked with include: Carol Channing, Nathan Lane, Rita Moreno, Tommy Tune, Melissa Manchester, Loretta Devine, Olivia Newton-John, Lindsey Mendez, Kate Shindle, Leslie Odom, Jr. and Lea Salonga.

PianoTrax allows you to instantly download or stream thousands of Mp3s to your computer or mobile device instantly.

You can purchase individual Mp3s or stream the entire library with a subscription on Apple or Android mobile devices.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, the PianoTrax app will change key and tempo.

How it all began.

Back in the mid 1980s, singers like Cher, Jennifer Lopez and Paula Abdul would come over to the studio to rehearse and learn a song. As people got busier they’d fax me their sheet music and ask me to record a song for them. I’d messenger a cassette tape across town so they could try out their new material.

In 1986, I got a Macintosh Plus, no hard drive, just a single 3.5” floppy drive. Then came AOL dial-up and the internet and before long I could burn a CD or I could email a digital file across town or around the world in a few seconds.

In 2006 I built my first website with some Mac software called iWeb. That was the launch of AuditionTrax. In 2014 we expanded to become PianoTrax. The rest is history.

It’s still a small operation with some really smart people to keep all the songs licensed and the apps running and a lot of tracks on the website to help singers crush their audition. “Break a leg” - Tom Griep
