Vid, Heather, and Cheeto, thank you very much for your tips! I genuinely appreciate the effort Do you find that sometimes you have to "drill in" the phrasing of a passage, or do you expect yourself to do it spontaneously/naturally during

My personal preference is to avoid overly simplified arrangements. I'm not bothered that my daughter is learning a simple version of Fur Elise, but for myself, I would rather search out pieces written more simply in the first place. There are so many

Well, the song seems to be already a real piano classic ;-) But although there exist some piano covers, I don't wanna hide my version of Let It Go. Hope you enjoy it, too :-)

Well said Jim. Personally I use the bending with trad lever to set pitch in one motion (slow pull) if I can. Very fast. I.e. I don't want to eliminate the bending. I know you can bend with the c lever but you need two separate motions to do so. Wit

You know, I started out playing a simplified version of Fur Elise, but it didn't satisfy me, so I ended up learning the original For Moonlight Sonata you should learn the original 1st movement, no reason why not.

Estonias are uncommon, but fortunately not mythical. I have a client with one. It tunes beautifully, and the bass is remarkable for the size of the piano. Wish she'd have it tuned more than once a year; apparently it holds extremely well, at least

Hello everyone I am 30 years old and have been playing piano since about age 8 or 10 I think. But VERY intermitently. This puts me in a bit of a weird place. With so much playing time and music reading under my belt I can pretty much play anythin

- although I know this isn't your decision, it's the colleges. Don't let it be a deciding factor on whether or not you study here. Let the quality of teaching and opportunity be your deciding factor.

Rich, it's interesting you say that Steinways are quite finicky - you're not the first person I've heard say that. I've heard guys over here say that they are 'labour hungry', and that they are notoriously difficult to tune in comparison to say, a BĂ

It is helpful to list what pieces you are working on at the bottom of your post. This gives us a general idea of your learning level, but the only way to assess your skill level is for you to post a recording in Member's Recordings.

As others have suggested, but I wish to reiterate: -You are not playing slow enough if one hand has to wait for the other. When you play hands together slowly, the tempo must be such that everything remains in proportion to one another: half notes t

I have seen one of these pianos carried around the streets with church groups for accompanying hymns on street corners. If it were solely for that purpose, it's quite conceivable that dampers were found unnecessary for outdoor use. I note that the
