Thanks for the reply, James. And yes, I am definitely enjoying my new CS11. I was wondering why there was such minimal MIDI documentation in the manual, so thanks for that link and explanation. I just downloaded it. I also just checked my software

the first year is incredibly difficult or at least I found it to be. This feeling like there needs to be a fully described plan, or a quicker way forward by being given more exercises is something I can relate to. In reality, progress really needs to

You are missing the important point she is making, both in the quoted statement and more importantly in the video. She uses the words 'a little' when describing the motion. The motion is a 'natural' consequence of the forearm rotation if you are rela

Well, I speak German decently, and could probably figure out Dutch, but sadly I am in the US, but I want to give you praise for having such parties, as that sounds like a great idea, and a whole lot of fun and a chance to meet new people!

30 minute lessons aren't long enough for adults, even beginners. I don't know these books at all, so I can't say if they're any good or not. But often it's the teacher and not the method book used that makes the difference. What questions are you a

A key factor (and Ori pointed this out), is that dealers buy pianos at wholesale, so when considering buying a used pianos, they look at how much less is it than a new piano at wholesale. Consumers are looking at how the price of the used piano unde

I see. How old is this Casio? How many pixels? I remember the first digital I tried was from around 1999 and it was a terrible thing. I think it was about 0.5MP. I guess the Casios were better.
