Thanks for sharing your experience. I don't feel quite so isolated with this rubbish feeling now! Ideally, it'd be nice to have a social network for returning adult pianists like ourselves to support and share progress with each other. This forum

I hope this discussion has been useful... what I would suggest is that you keep in mind as you make your decision: the first measure in line 4 has the notes as staccato. The second measure has the notes as legato and a complete phrase. Ask yours

Do you guys have any comments on the following? When I was in the store recently, being able to try both eh Kawai CA67 and the Roland HP605 (amongst others), I discovered quite a difference in possible dynamic range between the two. When the Roland i

I started back at the piano in Feb 2015. I had lessons as a 6 year old for a couple of years. I'm now 34. I've been playing daily ever since. I love the music and it helps me to focus my mind on something other than OCD. I live alone so I rarely

I asked this question on other forum. I listen to a vast number of great pianists for enjoyment, study, reflection, etc., but I recently realized as great as they all are I always gravitate back to three. It could be pianists, organists, or anyone.

I use a manual Leitner box for scheduling practice items, it's a good way to make sure I go back to review stuff. Before the box, a lot of stuff fell through the cracks. It's actually exciting to schedule stuff a week or a month out knowing you're do

Nahum, your right hand is too hyperactive; more flexibility and calmness! It's all a matter of personal taste! You stick with your fingering, I'll stick with mine.

dire tonic, your left hand is too hyperactive; more flexibility and calmness! If the left hand is free and elastic, then - at normal sizes - fingering 5-4-3-2-1 contradict anatomy that any genre can't cancel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZ_DElQm
