Both strip and completed unisons have their pros and both offer very clear information on how the board is moving. For example I start with the strip, use an A3 - A4 temperament, and then tune wide octaves from A4 - A5. Then retune (still just center

Akuden, congratulations, well done. Yes, you do do the scales HT (hands together) but not right away. Playing HT is something you build slowly. It is important though that you develop both hands equally, and that's exactly what you are doing it seems

How can you ask "how long"? Even after you got a diploma you are supposed to take lessons from professionals so they can teach you more. E.g. getting lessons from a Chopin expert so you'll play Chopin better.

I agree, since the MP7 I would like to see an update to ES7. But instead of replacing the ES7 with a successor, how about adding an ES11 to the product range?

Locally advertised is a Steinway Player piano sn#196852. Listed in fair condition. States the player does not work. Just curious if this is worth much value. Its listed pretty cheap but also probably needs a lot of work. thanks

I have a 1975 Yamaha U1, and based on 10 years of owning it, I'd say that no, a late 80s U1 is not too old, assuming it's in good all round condition. A good used U1 is imho a very good choice at their price point, and gets you a lot more piano for t
