I considered myself as no longer a beginner once I started playing original piano/keyboard pieces (i.e. from Denes Agay's Easy Classics to Moderns) - about two months into lessons and once out of beginners' method books. But I didn't think I was 'in

Thanks for all your replies. Coming from an exam-heavy piano education background, there was always an elitist segregation between those who were advanced players and those who were not, and no matter how far you seemed to have progressed in studying

I've looked up piano tuning in my area, and from what I can see most places offer tuning for around the price of £60-90, so tuning a piano once a year shouldn't be too much of a problem. I've read up that most places recommend tuning a piano every 6

I've picked up a line conditioner from Amazon ($60, ouch) and I'm hoping that resolves it. The noise has continued for three days and is unaffected by the volume of the instrument.

Here in the US, a basic tuning would run the equivalent of 75-105 pounds, depending on where you live (major metros, or concert service specialists can run even higher). Other work is often (regulation, voicing, repairs) billed hourly or per job.

Thanks, will do. This is the first one I tuned. I watched a load of videos on YouTube and used the Entropy Piano Tuning app on my phone. I'll do another tuning soon. I had more difficulty with the very low notes. They aren't sounding all that good.

Yup. That info is here: http://www.pianobuyer.com/current-issue/acoustic-prices-essex.html With a current SMP of $7,420, you might expect to see a discount of 10% or more off that amount (Steinway dealers tend not to discount as aggressively as oth

If you had time, I'd run through the tuning one more time, especially since you had to correct the pitch pretty significantly when you did it the first time. Also, I'd have the machine remeasure the piano completely from scratch before you tuned it

Sounds good, PT. I believe I'd go over the tuning one more time, do a little hammer shaping/filing, hammer-to-string-mating, and some hammer voicing/needling, and you'll have a very nice sounding freebie piano!! All the best, Rick

I hadn't thought much about the tuning aspect of buying an acoustic piano. I don't think it would be too expensive to tune it once a year or so, but I'll take it into account.
