The high end uprights such as Schimmel are better in touch than a cheap grand piano. Better in tone as well. That's why a high end vertical is a better purchase than a low end grand. I've seen artists use uprights in all states of disrepair and

01. wouter79 - Alla Turca, Rondeau from sonata no.11 K331 (1783) Very good performance! This sonata movement is technically difficult and even more challenging when comes to making music out of it. It is obvious to me that you have spent a lot of

My teach did not use any book for my first two years of lessons. She wrote only one line of melody, at first with only 5 tones limiting it to one position. The left and right hand move in unison, but the left and right hand begin at different times.

I constantly read that a grand piano should be the instrument of choice over an upright. Aspects such as string length, dynamics, repetition, key length, una corda, sostenuto, volume, room placement and appearance are stated as reasons. Additionally

With all due respect mischeli, if you are a Yamaha fan boy, why you prefer Roland RD800 over Yamaha CP4?... Please share with us your impressions about key actions in MP7, RD800 and CP4. Thanks.

Why not ask the person organizing the recital? He/she should know what other performers have been wearing. My chorus just switched from "concert dress" (tuxedo / formal shirt / formal pants) to "black shirt, no tie, black pants"

With the pedal rod disconnected and the action in situ, slide you hand down to the damper lift arm and check there is a little movement slack before the dampers start to lift. If there is slack and all the dampers start to lift more or less at the sa

Another vote for "slow down, until you can play it correctly! And then speed up _gradually_." And one more technique: Take two small bowls, and put them on (or next to) the piano. Put 5 beans (for amateurs) or 10 beans (for professional

It's nothing to do with dampers themselves .... it's merely that the hammer return springs are attached to the damper slap rail for convenience.
