Not sure why you think you need to defend Roland here. Looks like I need to clarify: I think it is not a good product at 600. I wouldn't buy it at 600, nor would I recommend it at this price point. I named a few alternatives for either a roughly comp

I have had the YDP162 for one month and I did some research on many DPs before buying. I went for this one because I really like its sound, specially with headphones, and also because it's cheaper than other models that have lots of sounds, voices, r

I can just add that when tuning a piano with no sostenuto pedal we can just use a screwdriver or a paps mute to lift the A4 damper off the strings in order to be able to retune the A4 string with one hand while holding the tuning fork with the other

Thank you all for your comments. Answering some of your questions: My DP has three levels of touch sensitivity. The default is medium, and changing it to soft/low I see that the sound becomes louder with the same amount of physical effort so I can

There's a huge difference between playing a piece "right" (that is, "no mistakes") and playing it "well" (with proper expression, so the listener enjoys it). An examiner doesn't expect perfection in execution. He wants

6 years is not necessarily a lot of time, it depends on the actual time spent practicing and the quality of your learning/teaching. If you're only doing half an hour a day or you practice just a few days a week it can take a lot of time to progress.

The RCM book is Preparatory but pre 2015 so there is no book A or book B. It is the Celebration Series Perspectives from the 2008 curriculum. When I started the book I only played each song maybe 5-10 times then move on to the next one. I didn't spe

Fryderyk, the Yamaha "GH" keys have a peculiarly high initial resistance but basically the same resistance overall through the key travel as most new acoustics. I did not notice any changes over time with them.

No no no, don't quit. My recommendation would be to take a look at Czerny's 101 exercises, Op. 261. They're short (sometimes REALLY short) and generally simple, but each one has a very specific and valuable technical purpose. I started learning th

If the music director wants to hear Bach's music with the appropriate tuning he should take the time to read Fred Sturm's scholarly article on the subject. http://my.ptg.org/blogs/fred-sturm/2014/10/24/lehman-bach-tuning-refuted
