Jump to new posts Question about accent marks by J Moore @ 01/28/15 05:09 PM

Hi, I'm working through Fabers Adult Piano Adventures. In the Russian Folk Song it starts out with four quarter notes with accent marks. The book says that the notes with accent marks are supposed to be louder then the notes around it. So how does t

Slippery I see your point, Slippery, but there is some room for manoevre. I have owned the Nord Stage 2 and the build is reasonable, it's a lot lighter. I notice that the 800NX is not so heavy too. The C2 is trivially light. However i do not thin

I think that people will talk and I try to choose repertoire carefully, to not draw to much attention. Still there is a purpose of being there, so I don't believe I should hide all the time, probably some Chopin Nocturnes and pieces by Debussy will

Well Done you! Recording really is the hard bit. I just got my hands on a film score wrote for piano. The music is part of a greater collection and costs a fortune. So I listened and wrote it down myself. It`s very simple, very evocative. Can`t

This will certainly be a challenge especially since you've been trained to play using a large dynamics range, and now your task is to play softly in the background without drawing attention to yourself. That's really the opposite of all your trainin

IMO, the drift due to the Weinreich effect is much smaller than the drift provoqued by a pitch raise. If we are able to compensate/correct the drift in a pitch raise then the Weinreich effect should be no problem neither. I'am not saying this drift

Again, I don't know which M-Audio controller you're looking at, but some are smaller than others. It sounds like you still want 49 keys, yes? Look at these... http://www.sweetwater.com/c1074--49_Key_Controllers The only way to get smaller than some

Sorry, my fault, it's actually $600. The pressure is simply to reserve, as there are more people viewing it a couple hours after me and another one the day after. And at this price I believe it. IF I like it I would reserve it and then get a technic

If your budget is under $1,000, you're probably better served with a digital. The action and tuning will never need maintenance and the touch and sound will probably better prepare you for when you upgrade to a nicer piano down the line.
