Rothwell, you're asking about a year's worth of work if you really want to know how to do it well. You can learn the fundamentals in a one-term course and then move in a second course to stuff that builds on the first course. My suggestion is find

I don't care for the rubato in the Chopin waltz either. But, I grew up listening to my dad play the waltzes, and his model, when he was learning them as a teenager, was Rubenstein's recording, which is notable for its minimal use of rubato. Recent re

That's great, Lee Ann, so glad you have many different brands to try! I almost purchased a Kawai RX-1 but the dealer wouldn't budge on the price, which was just a bit too high. The RX series are lovely pianos. I like the KGs, as well. Hope you find

Is there a matching triple pedal for the FP-30? Roland suggests the single pedal DP-10 as accessory. Roland does make the RPU-3 triple pedal. But it has R/C/L cables, 3 in total. And the FP-30 does not have input for this. You have to go up to

Keep a few items as personal treasures. As for the rest, you'll find that piano teachers are often asked to take stuff like this, yet typically have little use for it. That's in N. America,at least. You could speak to your local chapter of a piano t

My suggestion is to give it to a piano teacher. Over time, she can gradually sell some of them for $4 each. I think you will have a very hard time getting buyers.

Seriously, Nathan, everyone on this thread is right. Davdoc has made a very good point about spending the money on a good teacher and having your Kimball serviced. You need a teacher who knows about tone production, and knows how to teach you to prod
