I can also sight-read songs easily, except atonal ones (we never sang any atonal songs when I was in the choir) - I find the intervals difficult to manage when there's no tonal base. But when sight-reading pieces on the piano, it doesn't matter whet

You are all wrong. A "Honky Tonk" is a dive bar where the food is served cold and the beer is served warm. The "Honky Tonk" sound happens when you try to play a piano that has been hanging out in one of these bars until very lat

There is a modulation in Emily from C to A (one found on the lead sheet, not one I did to adjust the key for my vocal) that uses a Bb7 chord. I play Bb in the bass, D in the melody and D Ab and F below it. This is a very smooth modulation because B

I'm not a pro, or even much of a tuner, but I use the ETD extensively on the upper-most treble. In fact, a lot of pianos I've played, except the best quality ones, don't even make much of a sound for those last few notes. My Yamaha C7 has the cleares
