Jump to new posts Fully-Rebuilt Pianos Versus New Pianos by Paul678 @ Yesterday at 08:12 PM

If the fully rebuilt pianos only use the original frame and plate, and the rim material doesn't affect the tone that much: http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthrea...tml#Post2302409 Then why not just buy a new piano, and stick a Steinway sti

Faulty, by the way, I like that you have criticized Horowitz. It has given me something insightful to think about. He's one of my favorites, from whom I draw much inspiration. Your thoughts on him have not offended me in the slightest, because I k

I own both a Steinway O and a P95 Yamaha digital. I took the digital with me on vacation, (the Steinway wouldn't fit into the car),worked on my Liszt and thought it sounded pretty good. When I returned home, I was horrified by how much my music had r

Jump to new posts How do you identify the melody on a sheet of music? by Alex1 @ Yesterday at 07:38 PM

If I understand correctly, only the very top notes on the treble clef are the melody. So if you want to play the melody, you just play the top notes and leave the rest. Is this correct? I've attached a picture as an example.

The advice I was given was to set it at relatively high, and keep it consistently there. Ofc you have to adjust for what you need for ear phones vs. speakers.
