Hi DameMyra, I teach 4-year-olds often. I agree with all of pavanne's suggestions above. I would say further: Reading should wait until the child can read short sentences in English, whenever that happens. 2-hand playing should wait until the child

Frankly, you might get more mileage out of *not* having a diploma, Yadie. It makes you look like someone operating at the "street" level, and less of an idealist. Keep on with your pitch, and your idea!

I have Asio4all installed with 0 in/out compensation and with ~500 samples, force 44.1k OFF, allow pull ON. I use Kontakt with The Grandeur piano. The setup is for playing at home. When it works correctly, sound is awesome. LatencyMon is all green.

Whenever you memorize, it's always a good idea to follow the score some of the time when practicing a memorized piece, because invariably there are details (dynamics, articulations, ritards etc.) that get forgotten.

Place you hand on the keys, in the position of the chord, but don't play it. Make sure that each finger is touching the key it should play, but not pressing it down. Your hand is now in the right position to play the chord. Don't actually play the c

^ Correct Bruce, an academic teaching job is something you really would need a degree for. Quote:As an experienced player with a work history but no degree, the only thing I can't do is apply for academic teaching jobs.

It's very disappointing that Kawai are still releasing instruments with firmware bugs in them, especially ones so obvious that users (like OP) can find them within a day or two of first playing the instrument. Many people haven't a clue what a firmw

Good advice so far. If the actions on the two instruments are the same, then it's the sound/volume that is the problem. Be sure your volume is turned up reasonably loud - definitely more than halfway if not 75% volume. There should be a touch setting
