You could use a 12v car battery and a power inverter, though you'd have to lug the battery back upstairs and charge it periodically.

Frank, I must agree with my peers here about haggling over the price for lessons. Either the teacher is worth it, or they're not. If they are, then it's insulting to have a relatively ignorant person like yourself tell them they shouldn't get the m

Is there any such thing as a portable power supply, battery outlet or something to make my digital piano more portable? Like if I wanted to bring mine down to the basement to practice where there is no AC outlet. I would imagine they would have som

Jump to new posts on revisiting Chopin Etudes by Lingyis @ Yesterday at 11:45 PM

Not having been to a conservatory, I never seriously worked on them. I played through a few of them when I was younger, some as a kid (e.g. 10/2-5, 12), some in high school (e.g. 10/8, 25/11-12), some in college (several op25s), but lately I'm revis

I tried to solve the quiz, but I quited. I've answered only 6 questions. If I was your student I would also quit your lessons! I'm being honest. It's boring and tedious and tricky and mislideaing. Pure intervals are pure. Wide intervals are wide. N

The HP 21 inch slate looks like an interesting possibility too. But android has pretty limited functionality for music related apps, apparently. So it's pretty expensive just as a sheet music reader. Also, these extra large tablets are comparativ
