Hello PianoDad, When you write that the piano's function would be as a "professional piano" does that imply you are scouting around for an instrument for an institution you are associated with (school, church, etc)? The focus on brand na

Interesting. To my knowledge, the MIDI files with the method books only use one MIDI channel for the piano (both hands), so this feature must be something that they've added. My only guess is that they take all the notes below Middle C and make them

Lots of things to consider, and I still have the year to figure it all out. Definitely if I teach at home I will have to rearrange some things, though, to make it more private feeling.

I think that Steinway has managed to remain a supply of parts for their pianos from so many eras has been one of the assets of the brand.

Thanks for your reply James. I think all their models. On the Yamahas the CLP and the CVPs and even PSR keyboards all have this option (some hard and some soft buttons). On Roland's (HP and other models) actually have hard buttons that allow you

So sorry for being late to this party. I want to say that it is absolutely untrue that Steinway inflates the cost of its parts. We buy lots of them. If we are restoring a Steinway and choose parts from another supplier it is never because an alte

On the subject of the awesomeness of Liszt, here is a lovely piece of his which is not particularly well-known to my knowledge. And here is something else, although this is partly Chopin's doing:

All depends on how it plays--a grand piano that plays really well for under $10,000 is a bargain IMO. When I was looking a couple of years ago, grands offered for under $5000 were not good, whatever their brand. I haven't had great experiences with
