I have this ear worm which I can't remember who wrote! For solo piano, and there may or may not be an orchestra accompanying. I initially thought it sounded like Rach, but now I've no idea. Here's a midi that's probably incorrect and out of the corre

Thank you very much. I saw a concert pianist somewhere on this site say that your forearms should be inclined slightly to the keyboard. Since I am a newbie I don't know where that was but it generated my question above about this. I am six feet

Hey, do you have any links to your music if you have managed to make any recordings? Understandable if you don't have them. If you ever make it up to Seattle, you're welcome to use my studio, if you like. I have played on digital pianos all my life

wrt the cn24 vs cn34 it depends on what you want to do. if mostly just piano the cn24 will be fine. the cn 25/35 is coming soon so that will impact pricing.

Will, I added a clarifying sentence to my previous post. I have used the three softest felts Ronsen offers and all work. I do use the silver maple moldings. They are the best. I also have Ray make the treble hammers narrower than the rest.

First before I address this question, please do not be discouraged! Sometimes in a studio you wax and wane. You go through changes where you refine your teaching style and the kind of studio you wish you have, and this results in those that don't fit

I have lost 10 students in the last several months. This is more than I've lost in years. All of those students (with one exception) were never prepared for lessons, forgot or lost their music, routinely missed lessons, and barely practiced, if at

To be successful serving pianists, technicians must learn what pianists feel when they play. I don't find a tremendous divergence in what pianists like. They like pianos that perform well and which make them feel comfortable playing. Some adjust fas

I think the key with arpeggios and scales, too, is that at first, don't try to do them quickly. Just do them well at whatever tempo that is for you. Accuracy and complete confidence in where each note sits is of greater importance than speed. If you
