I think what you are noting is that on some pianos, the mass produced ones, the sharps are glued on before the keys are cut apart, so they are cut or trimmed to, or into, the edge of the sharp. On the other pianos, the keys are cut, and then the shar

Hello Halford, It strikes me that you voiced concern with cheating. I have seen other posters/threads voice similar concern, not necessarily due only to metronome use but various reasons/tips related to learning and practicing how to play piano; an

A few quick thoughts: 1. Mastery of 4 bars? With 3 notes? I'm not sure that there's anything worth mastering and I find that it's much better to give them some "meat and bones" to work on their posture, hand position, wrist position, finge

One could place veneer on the keystick below the sharp to fill out the edge. There would be much careful sanding to be done to get keystick side flush with the sharp edge. And then stain would need to be applied to blacken the wood.

Oh an upright. If there is a spring that holds the bottom board in it could have been slightly askew and when the bottom board moved a very little the spring "squeaked/groaned" on the polyester.

I think they need filing and voicing. The outer felt, which is usually uneven, needs to be removed. It sounds like some of the hammers are not hitting all the strings evenly.

Argerich with Abbado and the Berlin Phil. Her sense for phrasing and singing those long lines is so natural and beautiful, and the orchestral solos are done really well. Balance between piano and orchestra is really good, too.

Michelangeli/Precis, or Francois/Cluytens. They are older recordings, but I remember the sound quality of the former being especially good.

I agree with Carey. We don't all work well under excessive pressure; while some rise to the challenge, others can cave under it. A teacher who teaches only his/her way without regard for the students learning style or strengths is not necessarily
