The way I use these forms of temperament is only to add some color to the tuning ( different keys). And WT and MT are in my opinion quite different, even when you use the weakest from of them. Just another way of saying it. My own piano is tuned in 1

It takes me longer to read notes on the bass clef than the treble clef. (I'm still at the stage of having to figure out what each note is individually on both clefs.) I think it's because I look at what's on the treble clef first and therefore seem

Coincidentally, I sometimes have the same problem with C and A on the treble staff. I don't think it has anything to do with the middle line but rather that our brain mixes up those notes with the position on the other staff (C3 and C5 are like mirro

The middle line on bass clef, I know is a D and when I sight read a note in that spot I have no problem nailing it. The C and E on either side of it are the problems. I don't know of its my eyes, but I am always screwing them up. Most of the time I w

I think more information is almost always better. If someone posts the price they paid, and it turns out to be a deal unlikely to be matched, I'll figure that out on my own soon enough. Meanwhile, I'm sure there would be plenty of posters on the fo

Even if you can't afford (or your parents can't/won't pay for) lessons, just play! There are so many online resources. Just search them out. You can record your stuff for peer review/feedback...there's always a way.

I would think anyone with really hypermobile finger joints knows why one must develope muscles to gain "strength". Strength refers to stability here, not "finger power". The muscles may not actually be in the fingers, but they are

If you think you don't need strength/endurance (another form of strength really) to play, you should try Chopin op.10 no.2, or anything with a lot of fast octaves. Your technique can be perfect but if your muscles are weak you'll cramp up.
