I also suggest giving a look at the piano schools at artistworks.com. The Popular Piano School with Hugh Sung leans -- no surprise -- more towards popular music, with songs like "Memory," "The Rose," and "Linus and Lucy"

Sorry if this has already been posted before, but I'm going to start learning some pieces from the WTC for college auditions, recitals, etc, and I'd like an accurate, reliable edition. Right now I have the Dover edition. It's not the best edition tho

It may be they don't carry digital pianos. I've never been there, I just know when I tried looking up a Kawai dealer that was the closest one to me. I know when I went into one of the local piano stores where I live and asked about digital pianos t

A piano tech actually recommended I get a tuning hammer when one or two strings in my old upright broke. The replacement strings continue stretching a lot when they're new, to the point where you can neither live with the note that out of tune nor ca

I don't think there are any ES8s in the US yet. They may already be released in Europe, as Kawai James noted that the ES7 is very popular there and Kawai may get a boost by selling there first. As you all note, we need to try one out for ourselve

Hard to say when exactly. I collected my first fee from a customer when I was 14, so it had to be some time before that. I used to go with my father sometimes when I wasn't in school and he'd sit me beside him on the bench when he was tuning and I'

Chopin... "Heroic" Polonaise, Fantasy Impromptu, Berceuse. UNLESS played by someone the likes of Zimmerman. So often done in a half baked manner.

I'd say choir. Handbells are all about hitting your right notes at the right time, you have way fewer notes than in piano, and the repertoire for handbells is comparatively speaking not that great (except for arrangements). Choir, provided it's a goo

Ah, it's not even a stretch to know what the ES8 sounds and feels like. It's all trickle down from Kawai's pricier boards. Incremental update, and a good one. The rest is same as ES7 which was pretty good to begin with.

This may sound stupid but if you are going to play with headphones you should try the pianos with headphones. The piano may sound a bit different depending on whether you use the speakers or the headphones. I have a Yamaha YDP162 and the speaker does
