http://masonhamlin.com/crown-retention-system/ There's a 5' 8" M&H I'm looking at, that is supposedly about 100 years old. It's priced cheaply at $4,500 most likely due to the many cracks in it's soundboard. And it does have the tension

Hi Louis, I hope part of your harsh criticism is a result of the shoddy recording quality in my school's recital hall but I feel this is a piece you could spend a lifetime with, and unfortunately I only had 1.5 months to prepare it for this recital

I have a Kawai grand piano, and a Kawai ES7 (slab piano with speakers). They feel different, but I have no trouble at all playing good music on both of them. I gig a fair amount, so the easy portability and decent built-in speakers on the ES7 are a b

Yes, I'm sorry! I had meant to add that she used the Piano Adventures Series. She was pretty good but she could spend some more time at that level so I will take a look at the Level 4 books.

It says it has 10 channels. Some of those are grouped in stereo pairs (which is what you want for your stereo keyboard outs anyway). The channels with preamps are what you'd use for vocal or instrumental Mikes. The outputs to studio monitors and head

Let me amend my response. If the series is Piano Adventures, Level 5 includes the Burgmuller Ballade, and that's Level 4 in the Piano Repertoire series. You'll have to decide whether to further enhance her abilities at level 4 or shoot for level 5.

Gisele, I'm not familiar with the Faber series, so cannot comment as to which would be the correct piano rep level to switch to, but I'm guessing F&F has at least a few pieces which are also in the Piano Repertoire series. That could help you.
