Jump to new posts Teaching Advanced Students by Piano Playground @ Today at 02:25 AM

I studied Piano Pedagogy in college and have been teaching for many years but have mostly taught beginning - late intermediate students. I would like to feel confident teaching advanced students. I know it would be very rewarding. I'm wondering ho

I use a product called Goof Off to remove tar and chewing gum and whatever other crap people stick to the floor and the seats in my theatre. It works better than Goo Gone, but note that one of things that Goof Off will remove is latex paint. It sme

Clipping at -1dB and even 0dB seems weird. Normally, 0dB should be the limit value and clipping only occurs with positive values (+XdB). Are this clipping shown (red marks) in the Audacity view ? Reducing the volume should only help if clipping occu

No, don't record at a lower level. Typically, if you render out of Audacity, just turn the fader up of the piano channel to raise its level closer to zero. I hope audacity has a simple fader. All audio editors allow the level of the file to be raise

My dad bought a new M&H model A in 1974; it was the piano I learned to play on, and I still play it often. It has been voiced a few times over the years, but only had the action regulated once, about 4 years ago. It has held up well and is still

Jump to new posts Re: DIY pitch raise by a semitone - good idea? by Steven Bolstridge @ Yesterday at 10:53 PM

Get a professional to do this. You will be adding roughly two tons of stress to this piano, and the 100 year old cast iron plate may have weak spots. It will likely do fine with the pitch raise, but it has to be done correctly.

Just want to note that piano prices vary greatly according to the regional market. Around here I don't think anybody should expect to find a decently playable grand piano of any kind for under $5000.

Jump to new posts Re: Why is Alkan so underrated? by pianoloverus @ Yesterday at 08:38 PM

I am curious about which particular pieces you find deep and meaningful. I think the biggest problem with Alkan is that many of his pieces are about one third too long. Another big problem is the extreme technical demands his music often makes.
