Slipperykeys, Having used the nord music rest, I'm in disagreement with you. Because i've seen that they can be extremely well made, and they are incredibly useful and convenient when they are. I think having the option of a music rest that f

I guess it is no mistake that Mendelssohn wrote "songs without words". I really find most of his piano music looks back to Bach (the preludes and fugues) rather than to the romantic composers. So I'm a bit surprised by the description of

Your viewpoint is not new, and it makes sense only if you haven't really studied much music history. First of all, it is not only today that "academic" has been a derogatory term. Look at the things that Bernard Shaw was writing about Cha

If you are heading to medical school, there is a good chance that the university has a music department. You might find a good teacher that way. When I was an undergraduate, the music department had a teaching requirement for all of the graduate st

Gabriellaa, If your hands are getting really tired very quickly, you're probably playing with a lot of unnecessary tension. Do you have a teacher? A good teacher should be able to show you how to play so that you keep your hands relaxed. Als

Not to nit-pick but you said MAY. Regardless, my main issue is your assertion that being concerned about changing any part of the tone or harmonics makes you a purist. Perhaps we simply have a different definition of the word. No worries.

A viennese style unison, BTW, is not really "mode locking"--I think it would be what Olek calls a "smiley unison;" one string is slightly sharp, and quickly gets pulled-in. I call this a "sustain unison." A viennese unis

If anybody uses music stands like I do, stacking one book on top of the other until it is all unmanageable, some feeble clips on the back would actually be useless. I agree it seems wrong for Roland not to include them, although I still bought the th

Very true. In the brief search for a practice piano, I have come across some nice models in the under $5K price range from Kawai and Essex to name a few. Lots of good choices in this price range I think...

Not sure about the weight issue. Older pianos tended to be pretty heavy. My 1896 6'4" Hallet and Davis weighed nearly 1100 pounds. It was built like a lumber yard. The same with the larger Mason and Hamlin's. More modern pianos with better

The action spread (i.e., the spacing of the hammer and whip pen rails), dictates where the knuckle must be in relation to the whippen/jack. Knuckle size, will also have an effect, but this has more to do with the starting angle of the hammer shank at

I think we need to separate the physics from the psychoacoustics. Remember, it is what we hear that's important. All of the physics is to help up get to a good sound from a very imperfect system.

There's pricing information available here: http://www.pianobuyer.com/spring14/205.html I would suggest reading the introduction before skipping straight to the Yamaha pricing page. Also, I believe the Yamaha factory warranty is 10 years, and you

This sure sounds like the discussion that went around a couple months back when the PX-5S came out without a music rest.

When we tune unisons, there is a "mode locking" that occurs when the pitch gets close since the strings are closely coupled. I think Oleg has a discussion of Viennese style tuning which illustrated this effect.

Read my post again. I think it's clear that I said it WOULD effect the sound (although it subtle ways) And that would have A LOT to do with being a purist according to my definition of the word.
