A stable release is preferable, if there is some waiting necessary for less hassles, that is OK for me.

In my area, Central and Southern Maine, I think we are in a buyers' market phase. I'm seeing more and more of these bargain pianos that really are bargains, and people who are trying to sell nice pianos are not finding buyers unless they drop their a

I tuned a clunker the other day a very nice family got for free. I had to leave it a semitone flat. They wondered if it was worth anything. I answered that it is worth $$$ now. (The price for tuning.) I wish I hadn't said that.

Think about how bored a house pianist must get playing the same repertoire over and over again. Especially so if he is playing it straight. So the pianist entertains himself by adding embellishments. Next thing you know he's playing a game of one-u
