Mark, Thanks very much for the recording. I'm unclear on one point: determining the beat speed of the octave, and especially recreating that same beat speed in the A3 unison. I find that both the octave and the A3 unison are so rich in partials tha

Expect them to memorize! I would say every student has to learn to memorize pieces. I just don't give them a choice. If the student plays the piece enough, it just happens. After the student has been working on a piece, turn the music over, and t

As a student, your best course would be to own a decent DP with headphones for home, and play acoustic pianos, Steinway and others, wherever you can get your hands on them. If your school doesn't provide decent practice pianos, maybe you're at the w

Wait, so you just bought a new piano and there's a 3-day gap between the first time you played it and the second? Well, that's your problem. You're not playing enough. Your fingers haven't built up any strength playing a digital, and yes, Kawai's

I would not recommend buying a Steinway. Where will you put it? People with Steinway grand pianos in big cities tend to have residences that cost seven figures on up. There is also tuning and maintenance. As a student you are almost sure to be moving

Wow, that's a great deal, especially in Europe where I figured there'd be all these taxes. I paid a little more for my RX5 here in the wild-west (US). Well, get the one you like better. I hope it would be apparent. I know which one I'd get

I have owned a Ritmuller GH170 -- its a wonderful piano for its size. But if you are getting an RX5 for the same price, definitely get the RX5. Unless you happen to like the Ritmuller better ...

It will wick into the felt some and will not gel and grab quickly. Clamping might be needed which would be problematic for damper felt. Hot is just so easy though. Why not get set up for that?

The Ritmuller is very impressive for its size. The Kawai RX5 offers about an extra foot in length which will probably deliver a richer and more powerful bass sound. The Kawai RX5 has probably been discounted as the RX range has been superseded by the
