Thanks Dave! The only suggestion I have is changing the word use. "Bend" should be "flex". Bends are permanent deformation. Hammer strikes on piano wire rarely permanently deform the wire. Interesting implications regarding gener

Thank you for all the tips. It seems they answers are almost equally divided between exercises vs. no exercises. Bottom line, just start somewhere. I believe the exercises will help warm up my fingers, while training my brain to read music again.

Who determined that only cosmetic repairs were needed? Did you have the piano evaluated by a technician prior to purchase? Chances are there were more than just cosmetic repairs needed. Nothing major, probably, but as Ed Foote noted above, string l

Here's someone that has beautiful original work. To me, he is young and fresh. I learned about him in a tweet from David Nevue. Anyways, I've been listening to his piano music while at work. Just wanted to share, Zachary Bruno.

There's always these in a pinch. I actually bought a pair and use on occasion. My hammers have become awfully hard and I can't afford to replace them yet. Inexpensive, definitely not as good as musicians' earphones. [img:left]http://cdn1.bigcomm

After cleaning and polishing the brass surface spray a clear coat of acrylic lacquer on it. That will seal the surface and slow down the rate of formation of tarnish. For the last two decades Steinway NY has been coating the action frames with plate

I own a Casio PX-350. The PX-350 / PX-150 / PX-160 would be fine for any beginning piano student. They are "slab pianos" (portable), rather than "console pianos" (with full cabinet). You might find a used, or "new old-stoc

Hello, anybody willing to share? I cleaned and polished them but they get darker and duller after a while. Should I paint with some bronze powder stuff and then lacquer, or just lacquer? Thanks in advance for any advice!
