Thanks for your response. Well, I hadn't thought about that, and it's true that it spent the weekend in FedEx's Miami warehouse (which if not climate-controlled, was definitely hot and humid). Now it's in air conditioning and will remain so, but I've

Francisco, Articulation of fingers, wrist might be suitable for some music, like baroque, early classical etc. But for romantic music many consider the weight technique more appropriate. However, there is one thing that you must be cautious about.

The design of Kawai wooden and plastic actions differs considerably (see here vs. here ). If similar design would be possible with plastics is anyone's guess. I believe that the most important qualities of wood with regards to the Kawai wooden acti

I don't know how you mute strings. But for speeding up the coarse tuning I suggest you to strip mute the entire piano. Tune A4, tune A3 , then tune from the lowest note of the treble bridge up to C8. Then tune from the highest note of the bass bridge

I read you measured 88 notes. In fact Verituner only gathers iH info up to C7. You have not to measure from C#7 to C8. Also you can tune while the Verituner fills the I's, so in fact there is no measuring time. The only I's you have to fill complete

I found that a way to practice any rhythm that is n/ n+1 (3/4, 5/6, 10/11, etc) is to just do the following: Assume the RH plays 6, and the left hand plays 5 for example. Start by playing both hands together. The alternate between the hand with mo
