Happy Helen, You pretty much already know how to play the piano. Now you are just getting back on track. Many people here (myself included) are in the same situation. I started playing again 4 years ago after 25+ years of break. I found a great te

NormB - you must be quite right in terms of how action works, however as for the resulting sound only the final speed matters, not the acceleration path. So it's quite ok to measure it. How to improve the action is the whole different matter I guess.

Well gosh. I hope if anyone is driven to gastric distress by piano practice that they will tell me! To your brother, I'm glad he found a teacher who was a good fit and ultimately a satisfying life in music! As for noodling on one's own, I'm about to

BDB, I have tone-regulated/rebuilt about 5,000 grand actions in my career. Is that insufficient evidence to support what I report finding as regards hammer weight?

Henle and the orange Wiener urtext are both good. I like Christa Landon's very informative introduction to the Wiener Urtext, and she has good suggested elaborations of fermatas and other useful editorial comments, all as footnotes so they don't inte

There is a lot of buzz that goes on in the piano world, which few people bother to examine with any degree of accuracy. It would be easy to measure old hammers and compare them to new hammers, but I have never heard of anyone doing it. It could be th

I agree with Sam S and the others who commend the journey. What is your yardstick in asking "how far"? Were you thinking Carnegie Hall, or some lesser instantiation of mastery? All human endeavors are limited, by time if by nothing else. So

No offense taken, I am not very advanced. I don't yet know if my teacher has a plan per se, but I guess we will see as we develop our teacher-student relationship. Right now she simply wants me to memorize and perfect a recital piece and is having me

Be careful that 'How Far Can I Go' does not lead to 'I'm Not Getting There' or 'I'm Not Getting There Fast Enough': these last two are killers of motivation and lead many to quit. As adults we have a lot going for us, but the negatives are self-crit

Audio people choose microphones for the way they make things sound, which means that microphones change the waveform of a musical note. Once you change the waveform, you change the Fourier transform, which is the approximation of the waveform by the

One other thought, in speaker testing you typically aim the mic at the source but for room measurement the typical positioning is vertical (perpendicular to source). The best measurement mics have calibration files for 0, 45 and 90 degrees but the c
