Greg has already detailed some of the important issues. You may also find yourself teaching on a less-good piano than your own, in a noisier environment, and paid at a rate of maybe 50% of your present fee. Thirty miles is a long daily drive in which

Slow is good. So is fast. Whats going on in your mind is what matters. Sometimes if you speed the piece up in your head, it becomes easier to clearly see melodic and harmonic contrasts and forms. Slow it down and sometimes it's easier to see the inte

Wow. Thank you all so much for sharing your stories. I am guessing for every musician there is a personal reason for their enchantment with it. My story is pretty mundane. I was "forced" by my opera and classical music loving Mother to take

Hi Michael, A Dampp-Chaser humidifier/derumidifier system will help protect the piano and keep the tuning of your new upright or grand. It's even more important if you buy new - and in that case, don't worry too much about longevity since many new p

Hello all, My family and I are in the process of buying a piano, and have tried various uprights and grands under the $10 000 price mark. So far, these pianos have stood out to me: - Heintzman 132e upright, for $5000 with a trade-in of a yamaha cla

Grandpianoman, I'm curious if you cleared and remeasured ALL of the inharmonicity using the i436 mic (or started a brand-new file). I'm assuming that measuring inharmonicity might be the main strength and advantage of the mic. I use it for all new t

Yes Bob, I know what you are saying but putting in a new set of whippens in an already well rebuilt action is not that big a deal timewise. Two days downtime if scheduled right. Of course the cost is not minor as whippens are pricey.

It might interest you to know that my primary composition professor was a student of Hindemith's and a model of what a composition teacher should be. I don't think there's any constructive outcome to this discussion.

If the R is well preserved and dates from between WW2 and the time just prior to the accu-just hitch pins it can be quite wonderful. It is less muddy in the middle C area and if all is right the treble is strong and clear. The notes at the top of the

Markarian, I think I told you this before. But here in Seattle we really don't need the humidifier portion of the DC system. I think they cause more problems than they solve. Having that pan of water near the soundboard is not good in my opinion. And

Jump to new posts Re: Questioning the Wisdom of Heavy Actions by joflah @ Yesterday at 09:27 PM

I find that the VPC1's downweight is over 70g, and upweight is about 50g. That seems to be higher than what I've read is usual for grand pianos- maybe 45-50g and 20-25g. It's beginning to seem too much. I'm tempted to modify all the hammer weights...

Is the shop owner asking you to sign an agreement or contract of any kind? Or is this just a friendly thing between two professionals? A lot of conservatories and music schools require a written contract with the teacher. These usually include som
