Thank you both for your well written advice. CN-24 (with RHII) it is then, unless I find another brand that I like even better!

Tx- now that I have music in front of me it was bar 12 and was the change between the ACE and G# DE. After getting the chance to spend some time on it, I ironed it out. It was just remembering to play the G#. I find some songs easier than others. R

I work in a big library and this conversation made me curious to see what we had in our collections. I found a book called "Piano Tuning for Piano Players" by Warren E. Colbert (1985). It's really a type-written paper that's been bound. The

I have not seen this series at all, and I evaluate hundreds of piano students every year. Perhaps in Southern California this series has gone out of favor?

I really don't see the point of such heavy practice for someone who is still in her first method book. This is overkill. Alternatively, if it takes her an hour a day of grueling, focused practice IN ORDER TO play decently at each lesson, then I can

Hi, Setiawan! For my taste, just an excellent rendition of this Nocturne -- unfussy, beautifully voiced and shaped throughout. Just a matter of taste -- I prefer the "A" section to be a tad more "neurotic" and urgent, so that

When I turn the lever, I usually go slightly over and then lean back to the correct pitch. The amount to go over depends on how springy the string and pin is which I can judge by listening and feeling. When I think the pin is in the right position I

I agree with listen to what your fingers tell you. However, I can relate to wanting something that is close to "real". But there are some problems with that :-) - as was said above, the DPs all try to mimic a grand, not an upright. Example

Hi, Samuel -- Welcome to Piano World! I listened to all three of your submissions, but will comment here only because nobody else has. Briefly put, I find this performance to be the least successful of the three. I like the aspect that you are a p

I don't play that genre, but I did run into a web site called "Hear and Play" that's strongly into it. You could also google "Jermaine Griggs".

JohnSprung, I agree even though in my case the grand piano I played was quite good. The thing is the piano was closed most of the time and no one was allowed to touch it let alone play it. So when I saw some pianist actually playing it I took my chan

Isaac, thanks, and thanks for the unison tuning advice...will give this a try. If I understand you correctly, you're suggesting I mute the outer 2 strings, tune the center string with the ETD, then tune by ear either the left to the center or the rig
