Hello, Complete beginner and would appreciate some advice. Looking to purchase a keyboard that mimics an acoustic piano as much as possible. Would like the keyboard to be around $500. Not looking for a ton of special features, but would like some

Train your hand muscles! The interossei and the lumbricals, this will definately help your playing. If you need help with how to train them away from the piano, PM me, I have some exercises I can show you. Also, I'd recommed taking the WTC with you

We sell the HG-161 here in Austin. I can confirm that there was a period of time in 2013 where the Ebony sharps (genuine) had a rough finish. The dealer should have caught that during prep. However, it only takes less than 1 hour of tech labor to

Improv comes from doing something planned a lot, and you just remember that and apply it. That means you do have to play it enough in different situations to recognize that as a pattern that can be repeated and applied in different situations. It so

I thought I had seen someone on here indicate that they use a rollup keyboard when they travel. It wouldn't be as good as a keyboard but it might be worth a look. It might be smaller and easier to carry, though of course fake keys would be no fun to

I'm following the same struggle. I've been playing classical for a while and now trying to learn to play from a lead sheet. It is very hard for me to figure out what to play if it isn't written on the page. I can play the melody with the right han

Like everything, it starts with baby steps, and lots of them. Playing in other styles is actually rather easy and more ear-oriented than Bach. Bach is harder, for sure, but since you are not familiar with playing in other styles, Bach is more "c
