PianoStudent88 - as far as I can tell, and IMO, you can make those decisions yourself. I don't see hard and fast rules here - what I see is an idea to help spur us to play more pieces so that we're not stuck on 5 or 6 hard pieces in a year. A way f

I've seen way higher SSD failure rates than 1.5%. For a while, every one of our Linux servers used SSDs for the boot drive but half of those have died already on nearly no disk writes (e.g. boot-up only reads). Since then, we've gone back to using

The problem I have with tuning all the "A" notes by ear is that I can't do that without using other notes as a reference. In other words, when tuning by ear, the stretch develops as I tune the piano. Stretch is not pre conceived. Even roo
