OK, as planned I didn't play piano on Saturday the 30th. But yesterday we arrived in FL and after we had unpacked both cars and the trailer, I went straight to the piano. I missed my baby!

While I would not say that MM=140 bpm is too fast, I certainly consider it slightly on the fast side of a desirable performance tempo, particularly when you write "at least", unless your technique can handle that tempo flawlessly. Even wh

Well, I wasn't sure if $800 per hour was an actual quote, or an exaggeration. I'd pay someone $100-$120/hour if they were awesome at teaching and performing, but I've certainly paid that and gotten much, much less for my money (big disappointment) an

My source, who happens to be an ex-Babayan student, says that he does NOT charge 800. He does charge a high sum still, but that is also due to the expensive rent of his NY studio - taking a lesson in Cleveland should be cheaper. And I might add that

Andy, I know exactly what you are talking about and have experienced it quite a few times. A443, you can come if you'd like, but you will have to go through a background check, just like Mr. Bremmer did.

My main concern about the Baldwin console is that it hasn't been tuned in eight years which means it hasn't had any professional attention in at least that length of time. If you are leaning towards it, I would suggest that you have a technician che

Ghost(non sounding)notes are a problem for many amateurs including me. What helps me most is a suggestion of the pedagogue W.Palmer. He says that many amateurs tend to play with less than firm fingers when trying to play very softly. This makes it ha

Hello every one. I'm since a few days the happy owner of a Kawai MP6. I know: why not MP7? Because, at first, I wanted to get the VPC1. But I hate working with soft synths... So, the MP7 was my next choice. The issue there is that I do not like the
