I think I have recently got closer to my musical home...While I like many kinds of piano music (not all kinds though) I have rarely felt so connected with the music I study than I do just now. For the last 2 months I have jumped into less tonal music

Play as many pianos as possible. Decide on what you like about the action, tone and touch. The Yamaha C3 tends to be bright in tone fairly quickly, and the action is studious judging from the eight or so that I played over the past two weeks. If you

Funky. I must confess I've never heard of Onkyo or that there was even a market for $1,000 mp3 players. Looks like fun.

Jump to new posts 15ma = 2 octaves?! by MacMorrighan @ 05/25/16 11:14 PM

Okay, sooooo.....I have a question. Now, I *may* be misremembering, but I could have sworn that when I was working on a recital piece and was directed to play a passage two octaves higher, rather than one, is said "16va", which made sense

You have to deal with leaning over. I wonder if maybe your general body position when playing is stiffer than it needs to be and ought to be -- like, sort of straight-up and immobile. The reason I wonder is that otherwise I wouldn't think this woul

Hello all! I play the piano and I've come across a problem. When playing Beethoven's Pathetique 1st movement around measure 163, the notes go far down (to the left) on the keyboard. I find I have to lean heavily to the left to reach the keys and its

It's hard to get the vibe of the speaker system without having been in the room. But I tell you what I don't hear, here in my phones, is that phony boomy low-mid sound that a lot of digital pianos produce. And your camera has picked up the highs re

Panolof, what do I honestly think? Your "works" seem more random than improvisation - as such, both of your videos were very difficult for me to listen to. This, coupled with your mannerisms, such as the exaggerated hand movements, closed e

Cheers Steve, Yep, there are a handful of videos of the CS-X1 presentation on YouTube. This is probably the best one (in terms of sound), although it was shot on the 3rd/4th day of the show, so I look even more tired and have a nice croaky voice:

I'm surprised Beethoven is this uncomfortable for you. He composed on a much shorter piano than we use today. I have felt the discomfort you are talking about on later composers like Rachmaninoff and Ravel. You just have to use your body more to ease

Jump to new posts Re: Is Mozart or Beethoven the better composer? by WhoDwaldi @ 05/25/16 10:34 PM

Playing Mozart has more of a laxative effect than Beethoven--not so good for uninterrupted practice sessions. It should flow like oil. *cue the Tom Hulce Mozart laugh*

In my experience it is possible for a keyboard to be assembled with a less than perfect component. The instrument passes all the factory test and the manufacturer boxes it up and ships to a distributor. The person who purchases the keyboard may enjoy

Ok, now I understand. I may well do that to string #12 when I go back to pull the new string to pitch. I'll have to practice first on another instrument though. By the way this is on a Samick I'm guessing from the late 90's. The design may be similar

Hello Gers76, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the two instruments. I'm inclined to agree with kapelli in that you should trust your gut feeling and purchase the piano you enjoy the most. With regards to your query: Originally Posted By
