I'm going to take the contrarian point-of-view and tell you that you can indeed find a nice grand piano for $3000, and even less. Not if you're going hunting in retail stores, of course, or expect a full-service shopping experience, but if you're wil

Financial interest is anathema to trust. Also what's a pittance? Are we talking a gift certificate to a restaurant or as I have heard in string instrument sales, ten percent of the sale price? Two problems with I have with these kickbacks for t

I'm a guitar player who wants to get good a piano too. But unlike guitar, since there's two hands involved, I'm not good enough to improvise with new melody while doing the bass and chords at the same time. Also... in songs, when a chord is held for

If you've gotten of the original solo version why not learn a completely different piece? It's hard to imagine how this piece could be improved by adding a second pianist or extra notes. It's hard to imagine the result of doing so would be anything o

This phrase "conflict of interest" keeps coming up. It's frankly distasteful. If there is a solid relationship BUILT on trust that is between teacher and student, and teacher and retailer, there is no conflict. There is only gain. For the

AJF, with a dealer you're in a commercial relationship, so bias is part and parcel of it. In this situation, there is both a teaching relationship and a commercial one-- and hence the conflict of interest. Here is what the OP said above: "We

I think the pitch of operas was chosen to suit the contraltos and the baritones' singing range. That way when the tenor and the soprano were inevitably killed off at the end no one would mind all that much 'cause they had been murdering the intervals

I can't imagine why anyone would want to bastardise a work that is pretty well near perfect as it is. Arpeggios? Cadenzas? Save us from such sins and misdemeanors!
