Nahum -- Thank you! I never thought of jazz on the Melodica. . Charles PS -- last night, I was playing bass-guitar lines for a Hebrew chant group, using a microKorg synthesizer. It worked very well.

It is sad to see how a beautiful piano was crudely "restored" some time ago. Its original turned legs have been replaced by squared legs which look completely out of place on an instrument of this period. As far as I know, Bechstein did not

You now have three votes for getting the Larry Fine book. First, determine the family budget because that narrows down the choices immediately. If $15,000 is the limit of their budget, then that certainly opens up a lot more choices compared to a $

I would worry only if you often leave the balcony door close. The wood is affected by humidity with time. Also metal parts might rust. But only in long term. Many many years. Since generally people use dryers 1 or 2 hours a day, might not be a big d

I don't understand why the emphasis on just the octave size. If one chooses an octave size and all the intervals do not fit, then what - compromise the intervals to fit the octave or compromise the octave and start over? An octave by itself has meani

I'm very comfortable with parents sitting in, especially parents of females. Solves lots of potential problems, if you catch my drift. However, I do record lessons and send them home on a DVD. You might ask about this. Having a video recorder run

Can you get a local tech to look at these pianos? There's really not much we can tell you. We can't see the instrument. We can't hear it. We can't try the action and kick the castors. It really would be better if you paid a local tech for his experti
