I only have a digital piano, and to my shame I've never realized how different real pianos can sound like until I was messing around with a program that was emulating a bright, medium and mellow grand piano. I'm not familiar with the language used t

Jump to new posts Technical difficulty - some thoughts by Ganddalf @ Today at 12:59 PM

Many of the PW threads discuss technical difficulty of pieces in some way or other. Hardest etude, most difficult ballade or similar... Of course I see that gradings of pieces may be relevant when selecting a new composition for study. But my experie

Great to know that you allow your student to compete as long as they want to. My teacher only send the good ones out. She didn't even bother to send the not so good ones even if they want to. In my opinion, if won't be too much pressure for students,

If you watch concert pianists, they will always have the music desk down or taken off completely when they perform. This is so they can better hear what they're playing. The music desk gets in the way and blocks the sound partially. Whereas from the

Shishkin's 10.1 and 10.2 etudes are good. And I was disappointed when he did not advance at Tchaikovsky. But his 10.3 was a total disappointment. Soulless, syncopated, dry. I am not sure whether he will advance. Maybe just for the sake of his techn

It's funny, when I look at that picture, the key is in its depressed state, but the hammer is in contact with its felt stopper rather than settling back down a little. That would be equivalent to the hammer getting stuck on the string if it were a re
