I used to wash cars, as a teenager, to pay for my riding lessons. Then delivered newspapers. I wonder if the "Rotherham Record" still exists.

Hi guys, first it's a really nice Master Class about BEvans! Brilliant and better saying with a big awe! I am kind a beginner, though. Not so much in my head, but with my hands! Maybe someone could help me with finger tips for JazzHanon. I have just

You could look at method books such as the Alfred All In One Series or Fundamental Keys by Rachael Jimenez, both are well regarded in this forum. These are not expensive books and if a book can last you a year (four years in the case of Fundamental K

Hi Jamie, With all due respect to Mr. Reblitz, I do not feel that his method is very accurate or easy to learn. Search PW for "skeleton" method. It relies on listening to the piano to try and determine if 7, 8, and 9, is appropriate. For

>Wouter, the problem you have with this literature is that you think it should be Chopin. That's a problem! If you're going to play Schumann, you have to think like him and his textures, and not like what you grew up with. It certainly does not s
