I did JT through grade 5 and then moved on to regular repertoire. It's interesting that the accusation is that it is weak on theory because I found that, indeed, I was rather weak on theory when I finally got interested in it. I did not, however,

Hi all, haven't posted in a while and hoping for some buying advice. I'm looking to buy a digital piano (slab) for practice at night, and for gigging at venues without pianos. I'm mostly concerned with the feel, and don't really need a whole lot of

The Schimmel 174 was a solid piano. It is under 6', but had good tonal potential. I suggest you have the piano examined by an independent technician. Condition will determine if this is a fair deal for you or not. Cheers,

A 6'3" is a great size piano for the home. I personally like Schimmels. If you love the sound, and feel, and the price is right for you then thats your piano.

First thing I thought of was an extremely dissonant run in the Tarantella, but it's not really that strange.. just violent and jarring. Development section of the Third Sonata, first movement would have to be my real pick. It is all over the place.

I have played on a 7'Schimmel grand that was a couple of years old and was only $28k. And it was magnificent! The store had several, but one stood out from the rest in tone quality and touch. It never hurts to just play on different pianos until you

Use which ever one regulates properly. Replacing what was there originally is not always the wise choice.

It's lovely! Did you just sit down and do the improvisation off the top of your head or is it something you had prepared and practiced? It is wonderfully structured and full of invention. I'll be there on the 5th!
