I finally have a microphone and I want to start recording my practices. I have Audacity and was looking at their Wiki about how much space certain settings use per minute. Using it at the default settings they say it takes 20mb/minute and then chan

It seems I have a problem. I've had an elbow pain for a couple of months now, it comes and goes. What I just realized is that it comes from practicing this Schumann piece which is a real challenge for my right hand. I spend about an hour on it yester

I started out four months ago and would practice hands separately (usually RH first then LH) then work on bringing them together. Until recently, probably about two months ago I started with HT and have been doing that since. So it does take some t

When I think about it I often feel burned out about piano playing. Interestingly I hardly ever feel like that about my job even when it's really bad. I don't really feel much joy about just playing because it's always such a struggle to get through

Well, there is a couple of mental shifts that occur as you improve. You go from 10 fingers and controling each independently to two hands to one hand with 10 fingers working together. Sometimes a piece is complex enough that the final shift takes a L

If you're only considering purely the action, the DP may possibly be the equal of a low-price acoustic. However, when you consider the whole, I, and I would suspect all pianists would far prefer playing an acoustic. There are many more aspects to a

That's a good question.. Some say the piano is meant to go out of tune, and the ability of strings on pins to give, along with the crown of the soundboard is supposed to maintain downbearing in the system over time. As far as putting worm drives on
