Okay, thanks for the input! I will have to learn patience. (bSharp, I found the last two pieces in book one challenging, too.)

I have the course, and I've worked through a good chunk of it. I'm not a beginner but I got the course to learn arranging and improvising. I've learned a lot from it already. It's a lot of work but it's really fun too. I've posted in other thread

Just one more thing: what about the keybed of the FP-30 vs the Kawai ES100? Big differences except the 3 vs 2 sensors?

Hi Valencia, I had to listen several times to figure out what was happening with the rhythm. The first half of each measure is too short so the end of the measure always sounds early and syncopated. I think you are not dotting your dotted eighths in

Heather my dear, It is an unspoken belief among many people who have not been properly trained, that playing by ear is superior to more seemingly traditional training. And that it avoids many of the seeming pitfalls of music education, encourages s

Hi bananasushi, Ok, op. 9 no. 1, now I know what you're talking about This one is more beautiful than op 9 no 2 anyway! I think it's best to try to find a fingering where both voices can be played legato. That will help keep the integrity of the top

Inkwolf, I too found Book 2 to be a lot more difficult. I got about 15 or so pieces into it a few years ago, and hit a wall and gave up. I started it again in January, and am only up to "Theme from "Solace". I found "Down in th

Yamaha once made speakers in the shape of an ear and published this absurd advertisement. "Either we're right about the shape of our speakers, or you're wearing the wrong kind of ears." http://s1102.photobucket.com/user/frommerstop/media/

Fur Elise. I guess it's an easier version but I would rank it above, or at, most of the pieces towards the back of Alfred book 1. My teacher feels that this piece is good for practicing LH and RH independence and "pass offs" between them,

I've always wondered whether sometimes a piano can't decide between two buyers. And maybe sometimes a piano hesitates in making up its mind about a buyer, and another piano comes along and snaps the buyer up. Food for thought ..... Larry.
