I'm a late intermediate, early advanced pianist and, with a teacher, it is taking me about 5-6 months to work up a main piece (a Chopin Nocturne, a Rachmaninoff Prelude, a Brahms Intermezzo) that is designed to challenge my current skill level. I'l

This one is beyond my level but I did manage to slowly limp my way through. I particularly enjoyed the secion around bar 21 and the ending is very satisfying.

In jazz charts it's typical to see #9 chords with an enharmonic spelling: E-Bb-Eb for C7#9. But in general for me personally, I'd prefer to see chords spelled correctly as I tend to think harmonically when sight reading. And C-Eb-Gb-A doesn't regi

You should probably look for a decent Audio Interface with USB connection for your MacbookPro. There are interfaces which use FireWire but you don't really need them. I can only speak of Focusrite because I've got one. E.g., Focuserite Scarlett line
