Greetings, You want a piano that you don't have to worry about breaking, because you will. It would be good to get a piano that is of high enough quality so that you can sell it when you have learned what you can from it, but at least, get a piano

Many years ago, I played a newly rebuilt Steinway in a recital. I thought it sounded muffled. It turned out that it did not sound muffled at all to the audience. There must be something about how the sound projects. Opening the lid helps the pian

This being Holy Week is a very appropriate time to let us know about these! I don't think my church is doing a Seven Last Words service this year, so listening to these sonatas may be my replacement. Thanks for sharing.

Voicing will not necessarily make the piano softer, but it can make it easier to play more softly. It also can remove some of the harshness of the tone.

After a while I can see where you bring Young's law. The closer you hit w.r.t. a hinge point the less the string will deflect if the same force is applied hitting the string center will produce a larger deflection (bending of a beam, related to the e

I would also add - I don't think any of these computer-based exercises really develop musicianship. I would never advise an aspiring guitarist to rely 100% on Rocksmith, because they're just learning chords and exercises, but not how to make music. I

I'm already reading music and taking lessons with a teacher. The reason I asked about programs like Rocksmith has to do with "gamification," or turning drudgerous work into a game. Most piano students (myself included) think that doing te

Based on the pricing discussion above--and given other recent pricing discussions--the pricing strategies of these imports do seem a little odd. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of supply and demand would certainly question the notion of dras

A piano can get very loud and easily pass the 100dB. Practicing several hours a day can be damaging for the hearing, and I learned it the hard way. Has anybody tried reducing the down bearing on the bridges and getting a lower volume longer sustain
