Jump to new posts Re: Why American sound is different from European & Asian sound by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ 04/25/15 10:30 AM

Most of the contemporary European and Asian scales have longer string lengths and thus higher tensions than Most American scales. Also, some of the Asian pianos use harder metal in the casting and this contributes to a brighter tone.

Yes, it's o.k. It's probably the least expensive digital piano that is actually usable. With that being said, the Casio privia PX-150 (or the new PX-160 when it becomes available) are significantly better pianos and they are not THAT much more expe

I will agree with that. Just, there are many variations of use of ear, sight reading and memorization. It is hard to fit the exact definition of the first two, yet we use all of it.

First time I heard a D. Is this what is called blooming base? Compared to another youtube performance by also another great pianist George Winston playing the same song, this piano seems to sound better to me. May be it is just the recording. T

I find it curious that Larry Fine states: "The tone of most Kawai pianos, in my opinion, is not as ideal for classical music as some more expensive instruments, but when expertly voiced, it is not far off, and in any case is quite versatile mu

Just another little but very important point: Casio make one good quality keyboard for all of their PX range and the console style Celvianos. I'm not sure if it's the same in their budget CDP pianos, though - and my impression was that the CDP pianos

Anybody with a performance degree that hasn't start teaching yesterday and is able to make a living out of it is going to be ok. Terrible teachers don't last too long on the market. I wouldn't focus on "competition teachers" because it's a

Bach teaches you patience. It's not virtuoso in terms of Liszt speed and jumps and huge chords and all that showoff technique, but it's incredibly hard for multiple reasons: 1) You are totally naked, one wrong note, sounds bad right away, two wrong n

Do you sit differently when you're at the home vs. during the lesson? Are the pianos and stools very different? Small changes in my sitting and posture can make a big difference in how comfortably I can play.

"Great" music has a depth of feeling and expression - of whatever sort - that means a pianist can spend hours, days, weeks, months, years, exploring quite how s/he wants to interpret it, possibly refining that interpretation over the years.
