The idea is to get all the frequencies back in the primary reflection behind the piano instead of losing the bass through the wall. I hope this might just take care at least of what the player hears... But in the end the other walls can require some

The ability to sight-read well isn't just mandatory for accompanists/collaborative pianists, but also allows you to learn new repertoire much more quickly and efficiently, because you can spend more time on interpretative matters and practising the t

Regarding ear training and sight-reading, the exam is easier than the exercises at the end of the book. If you are able to nail the exercises at the end of the book first time through, you have nothing to worry about on exam day. I would caution tr

With mass you lower the frequency response of the wall. The way the panel will be fixed probably can influence a little the result. (I am certainly not an acoustics specialist so I stay with generalities there) Your method is easy to test, I have

Early pianos (fortepianos of Mozart and Beethoven's time, and the Pleyels and Érards of Chopin & early Liszt) have slightly narrower keys, so you could specialize in playing them . But by the early part of the 20th century, the keyboard size

Liszt told his students to sight-read every day, and he himself did it often, which is why he had such a large repertoire. He said it is helpful for seeing the pieces as a whole, and not just as a collection of small details.

Thanks for the pointers and the right distance from a solid wall. If that's 10 cm (that's what we had before... so apparently not just for space-saving reasons), my idea will be easy enough to try. Then it's just putting a 3/4" quality hardwood
