Hey guys, I just started focusing on jazz piano... I played jazz sax for many years so I have a decent understanding of theory as was comfortable improvising on the sax. I had worked through a good portion of the Jazz Theory book, did some transcri

I like Roland. I really do. But their piano sound... it sounds good ! It does. It can sound amazing. But it.. it doesn't sound as good to me as a VST, Kawai, or Yamaha does.. THAT IS JUST ME. Just my ears. It may sound stupid, but that is just how I

Hi Sam, The Yamaha GB1K is made in Indonesia, and I think the GC1 and GC2 are as well. The Kawai GE and GM are also Indonesian. They're made in factories owned by Yamaha and Kawai respectively. They're not necessarily 'low quality' pianos, it's ju

Just don't! It is not so unusual that, in contemporary houses, in order for a piano to have a suitable place, something else has to go. For me, at first it was the big couch; now, it's the bookcases so there's room for the surround speakers. But, I

The overwhelming bulk of the piano industry still caters to the middle class. However, I acknowledge that the interior decorators of billionaire's apartments need props for flower vases, and for that a Steinway will do just fine.

Frito, it may depend upon at what approximate level you are playing, as well as your intentions - if playing the piano is a casual hobby involving 30 minutes practice four times a week then there may be no point in pushing the matter of scales, but f
