    Because of its ongoing success and popularity, PSU students and alums who participated in the festival as youngsters have returned to the event as counselors, supplementing the expertise of Piano Monster founder and Director Carleen Graff, a PSU Music Professor and current President of the New Hampshire Music Teacher Association.
