As a starting point, you could use the depreciation schedule in the Piano Buyer(see free link in left column)for a 10-year-old piano. Start with the current selling price for a new Steinway A in rosewood and multiply by the factor in the depreciation

Maybe the teachers here can advise but have you tried simply letting your hand fall? Don't try to press down. Just let it fall and hold the key down with your index. You don't need to put any strength into it. You're also doing the tiger grip thing w

I'd be cautious about doing exams without a teacher. You need to know the curriculum and the requirements, i.e. what will pass and what will fail, as well as know when you're ready. If you consider Alfred's as sight-reading material then it's not wo

I play the ornament as a turn, DCBC, using a triplet and putting the principal note on the third semiq. I use 'threepenny bit' but you can try 'Strawberry jam' and put the accent on STRAW not on jam. That'll help tie it to the beat.

Why do you lower your whole right hand and arm, as an afterthought each time? You don't do it with your left hand...look at the video. Initially, it looks almost right anyway. Try playing shorter notes and add something else with other fingers, to b
