Good to know. Thanks. It has good sound while it maybe helpful to see my posture while playing. Though, on second thought, maybe I don't want to know what I look like while playing.

Hi Ryan, Plenty of good advice here. A structured program always helps. When I'm trying to form a new habit, I set a goal to do the tiniest thing possible to form that habit (e.g., I will just sit down at the piano and play for 5 minutes). This c

I have often heard that the third is more pianistic and fits better in the hand then 2nd, and that makes me tempted to finally learn it. I have performed the 2nd and am comfortable with it, so when people say that I get excited. Until I open the sc
