In older music you can find da capo al fine or al fin. I don't know why but in my old Italian books I found both. The notation on the op screen doesn't look right to me. There is no double point for the repetition and the double "s" doesn't

The downside is that as a chapter group, we logged 2 sessions where everyone (about 10 members) was working for 2 hours. Add to that the time I spent by myself, and the afternoon that a good friend of mine and his wife came up to put the finishing

I jumped from the GHS to a casio tri-sensor and it was very worthwhile. Heavier, yes, but that just demands some practice for adjustment. Better responsiveness makes for better trills, one of the first things I noticed. That said, I had the same p

If I don't clean things up with a metronome, there's still a phase in my learning process where I'm slower on hard parts than on the easy ones. That ain't rubato, that's just a mess. I do prefer a metronome that indicates the first beat, and find i

Acrosonics used two different drop actions, and then they started making some consoles. I have also seen one old piano labeled Acrosonic which was a Hamilton on the inside and a fancy case on the outside, before Baldwin made Hamiltons with fancy case

An interesting aside. The GHS is the successor to a previous Yamaha action, AE or "Action Effect" (other definitions have been mentioned) which was deliberately light for younger fingers whilst having the general feel of a piano set up; th

I wonder if this is from someone who's been using one of those music notation programs for the computer. It looks like the instructions overlaid on the sheet (the S sign and the FIN) aren't quite complete. These instructions are customarily in Italia

Noonie Dru is right, go real slow. The hand coordination will come. I had a hard time with Beautiful Brown Eyes and finally got it together. Now struggling with Little Brown Jug. I found the video on slow practice really helped me to understand.

Oh, I don't try to play the whole piece to the metronome, wouter. Einaudi uses too much rubato for that to work. But I had thought I was playing at the proper tempo, when obviously I wasn't. I'll play along with the metronome enough times to inter

The idea for the modifications which were made to this piano was to insure that all 88 notes would work come rain or shine. No cover needs to be provided - it can and will sit through cloudbursts and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it. Also
