I wish they had a mini-grand cabinet version for around $8K MSRP. I'd be interested if the action is as good as said and it had a great speaker/amp system. I don't really care about the built-in sample quality since I wouldn't use them anyway. I like

Thanks Morodiene. Actually, the transition from 1-3 to 4-2 is not that bad. I can sort of do it. The biggest problem is the 3-5 to 4-2 transition especially in the last bar. For the first bar I practiced the 5 finger exercise suggested by bennevis an

Wherever you end up, keep up your violin skills, and do take a music education course, or piano pedagogy course, or string pedagogy course, or all three. Don't neglect music education as a major, combined with performance. Also, start playing the or

How about 1 and 2 for the LH trill? That's how I do them. I have toyed with crossing, and even doing the high F-sharps in the RH with the pinky (letting go of them quickly against doing the trill with 2 & 1, RH)--somewhat clumsy. Crossing might

A frequency spectrum should not display a double peak near the fundamental unless there is really and truly two near co-incident frequencies. One explanation: It is possible for ghost peaks to occur coming from the exact divisors of higher partials
