It happened to me! Exactly the same! Except that the tilter didn't touch me and iron plate was removed earlier off the piano. I had have tilted the piano several times with the old casters with no problems so I was confident nothig would happen, then

Everyone here is so knowledgeable. I'm trying to decide what to do. I have played since I was 11. I took lessons as a child and just loved every minute of it. I was encouraged to major in music, but I was more interested in science as a career.

Sorry about your bump. (But it would have gone viral if it could have been posted on YouTube!) There's another approach. . . Just tip the piano on its side (so it looks like a giant accordion). It's pretty easy to do since you aren't changing the

Mike, I like Rachel Jimenez's Fundamental Keys. It's inexpensive, and it makes a great supplement to the alfred's method (though it can be used stand-alone too, that's what it is designed for). It starts out with very simple pieces, but with r

Frank, you are looking for a musical relationship more than a piano teacher in the traditional sense. And that is OK as long as you put that up front, and you are doing that. Some piano teachers are amiable to that arrangement, while others are not
