I can see why somebody such as George C Parker did what he did. He made a living out of it! This, to me, is just stupid. Nobody could accuse me of lacking a sense of humour but simply messing people around in this way lacks any wit.

BTW, the "Viennese" type is a DOA to me, with all tone immediately and shortened sustain. But the attack is clearly manageable that way, in its "thickness" (meaning duration)

For a while, even though I was following the syllabus published by RCM, I was on the fence about taking the exams, then one day, I decided to go for it. It was only then while preparing a few months before the deadline, when I realize the difference

Out of curiosity, what type of music do you play, Chuck? I think I tuned DOA (straight slant from very immediate attack to the end of the tone) and that was much appreciated, for years. It was difficult to me to listen differently so to deal w

I also thought about that. For the two younger students I don't think it matters as much because they haven't been taking particularly long. However, for my older student I am concerned about her because she really liked her previous teacher and has

Hey Kees, Can you identify wide or narrow? Did you see my numbers from Audacity? Can we calculate beat speeds at the partial from check interval beat speeds? What do you think about a Steinway B mid range octave tuning out as a narrow 4:2 and a wi

These exams always seem so daunting, being tested and marked accordingly must take some of the fun away from the learning process. However there must also be a great benefit in having your hard work recognised. Perhaps one day I might sit an exam but

Angela, welcome. You're on the right track, I'd say, and John is generally our sage on this board. If you put a new piece up on the music rack, have your student try to read a phrase of it - or sing a phrase of it - one clef alone, without writing in

Charles, I suspect Yamaha wanted to design the N3 in a self contained very short (4'11') grand piano cabinet, and decided that a 10" sub wouldn't fit without displacing some other amps/speakers. I think most customers that buy this don't want to

After having claimed the 4:2+ octave is optimal, then hearing people talk about tuning 4:2-, which I didn't understand, then listening closer to the octaves I tune, I've been finding many instances of different size octaves. I still believe that the
