AndresD, I'm in a kind of dual position, having been a student and still being a student, but also heavily into looking at the teaching side and I'm not alone in either of these roles. I'm pretty confident that I know what I'm talking about in what

Sviatoslav Richter is the only great pianist I know of who never played them complete in concert, but he does play them in groups, following Chopin's key sequence - which makes sense for quite a few of the Préludes, because they are preludes to the o

ks, I agree with what you wrote but your math might be off. If the student has studied for 7 years AND had a teacher for 1 year, then he self taught for 6 years. If he can play those 50 pieces fluently he may have made some progress. But 7 years

In a sense, every piano is really three pianos. The wound strings on the bass bridge make piano one, the tenor strings upto the capo bar make piano two, and the strings under the capo bar make piano three. They all sound different. The trick is to

I've considered swapping my Mac Pro for a Mini. The small footprint of the Mac Mini is very appealing. You can mount it on a wall behind the piano (out of sight), for instance. In terms of processing power, a quad core @2.6 (Max), 8 Gigs of Ram, and
