Composition in university is approached differently these days, than in the past. These days, in America, it is more about bashing and thrashing around without functional knowledge, and that is indeed in an attempt not duplicating the work of others.

Thanks for elucidating this point. The internal conflict in the Viennese unison fights with the mode lock, I think, giving more color to the sound. The unison locks and unlocks due to the tuning. I certainly agree with the comment on American styl

In general, though of COARSE a piano or keyboard should have a stand, whether for professional, teacher or student, concerts or practice. Nearly everyone is going to need a stand from time to time for notes, set lists, song schemes, sheet music or th

I think peterws has a DGX and gets on fine with the GHS action. Be careful though the GHS may be lighter in a traditional hammer sense, but I think it pushes back on the fingers with a spring like feel. Maybe not so good for you after all, so try one

The knuckle and the jack have an certain alignment, at rest, that they should be in. If one simply changes the knuckle location further out on the shank--and doesn't make the adjustment necessary to the hammer rail like they are supposed to--the jack

I guess it is no mistake that Mendelssohn wrote "songs without words". I really find most of his piano music looks back to Bach (the preludes and fugues) rather than to the romantic composers. So I'm a bit surprised by the description of

Your viewpoint is not new, and it makes sense only if you haven't really studied much music history. First of all, it is not only today that "academic" has been a derogatory term. Look at the things that Bernard Shaw was writing about Cha

Not to nit-pick but you said MAY. Regardless, my main issue is your assertion that being concerned about changing any part of the tone or harmonics makes you a purist. Perhaps we simply have a different definition of the word. No worries.
