Basically get it tuned as often as you can afford. There's no need to get it done say, every week or every month, but you want to try and avoid it starting to howl. I have my piano tuned every 2 to 4 months, and the variance in whether it's 2 mont

I had a tuner who was working on my Steinway offer me to re-glue two missing ivory key tops on another piano I own. Even though I had some reservations about his ability in restoration work, I foolishly agreed. He used wood glue, and when it dried ou

Yeah that's true - European pianos really need to be mellower (generalisation I know), otherwise they can sound unbearable (another generalisation, but it's largely my experience). American pianos seem to be able to cope with being bright and sound

Sounds like the Kabalevsky Toccatina might be way too easy for her, but I really like teaching it as it sure does give students a healthy dose of inverted triads, and also a chance to learn how to express a nifty left hand melody, while keeping the R

As terrible and suckie as Hannon is, there are actually some interesting jazz versions out there. I'm too lazy to go through my totally disorganized music library and search out the title of one really good edition.

Unfortunately that's what it means. It means that the piece is built on the A minor scale. So what are the ramifications of that. Consider the C-major scale (the relative major scale of A minor). It has the same keys (all white notes) yet pi

Thanks, everyone! Yeah, the bedroom is not the traditional room for a piano. For sure I won't be getting up and playing in the middle of the night if I have insomnia. But it was a space large enough for the piano and a space that required the lea

Maybe the hammers one starts off with are important in terms of the sound being "American" or "European"? I'm not a piano technician, to my ears though there is a distinct difference in sound between the Steinway D and the D-274

I thought you did. But then, you also know that there is a lot of skepticism about whether the current Baldwins are using the U.S. scale designs, or if they are something different. Similarly, there is some debate about whether the Samick Prambergers

I don't buy the claim that the escapement is an "undesirable" artifact that we just can't get out of grand piano actions, for at least two reasons. First (and most importantly), it's a reference point. It's like the little bump on the F a

I'm not offended. When you are looking for free stuff you must remember that you'll get what you pay for. This goes for advice as well as for sheet music. You could try looking at your local library or on imslp.com.

I'm starting on "Got Those Blues". It doesn't seem particularly difficult but this is the first time I am really feeling the limitations of my unweighted keyboard. You just can't vary the volume while you're playing with one of those.
