I've noticed a lot of dealers, semi-dealers, wanabe dealers, etc... sell pianos out of their homes, garages, basements, etc... I've sold a few pianos myself, in the process of tinkering or upgrading, but not enough to consider myself any kind of dea

The time line of the piano playing learning experience goes from 0 to eternity. So even after several reincarnations (if that is possible) we still haven't "gotten there". By deduction, the only way to do it seems to be to enjoy it while it

Just an FYI to the OP and others toying with these things: Since the A to D is happening inside the mic with these USB mics, you have to be very careful of the levels. The Apex mic I think only has 105db of internal dynamic range (some other brands

Memorizing the scales is very easy and can be done in a day. That's not the main problem. IMHO, it's better to work on your scales in many different ways (articulation, dynamics, rhythm, etc) than to learn them in all keys. Frankly, do you play that
