In any field of human endeavour there is always a learning curve. We have seen, however, that "when you've been an engineer for 30 plus years, minor repairs on pianos don't seem too difficult". I am sure that someone with over 30 years b

IMHO, it would be Casio PXA100 / PX150 vs Kawai ES100 for an 8-year old, assuming your son is beginner level. I will just save money in the future for high end models because by that time technology is better and I would let my son decide what he wa

Divide the beat into 12 equal parts and practice it super slow. It takes awhile, but believe me, the results are worth it. Same is true for other polyrhythms. Of course at some point, you can't use that many equal parts or it will be too fast to c
