How did this become about general education? Apples and Oranges. There is a huge difference between 'forcing' a kid to go to school (home or otherwise), and play the piano. You need (some degree of) schooling to survive in this world (try getting a j

Rönisch pianos are still made to this day in Leipzig. Actually, the company is now owned by Blüthner, and at least until last summer, they were selling them at Blüthner in London. I see that they are no longer listed on the Blüthner UK website, so ma

Perhaps you are making this more difficult than it really needs to be. On this particular piece really all you need to "feel" are the steady 3 beats per measure. The "ands" should take take care of themselves if you play the 8th

I do understand the problem with USB, but I think using SCSI or a serial link (with a specific driver) would be worse. I do have a CLP150 and its "file utility" intended to exchange file between the PC and the piano.... The software is only

Fizikisto, your experiences seem more supportive of keystring's point about forcing children than your own. Perhaps the children who have been forced through conventional schooling are trained into ignorance and laziness, and the children who have b
