There are several things loose! The piano has two pedals, and it doesnt have a practice pedal. Instead, you switch to practice (quiet) mode manually by lowering a piece of cloth to reach the level between the hammers and the strings. This mechanism i

Frankly, I do not believe that one can learn from books meaningful improvisation ; just to improvise exercises - scales, arpeggios etc. This is not music! Smart teacher can pull out of you the real, albeit simple, improvisation already at the first

Hello everyone! A little about myself before I get to my question. I started playing when I was 5, but dropped it around 10/11 cause I hated it. About 3-4 years ago I picked it up again and am self-taught. Until recently I only played new age, moder

I find it's harder to play well on Pianoteq which may be better for learners but not so good for performances. Built-in DP sound engines are very forgiving on dynamics -- I can miss-hit a key (either too soft or too hard) and it'll still sound OK.

This will all resolve itself in two months maximum. Here's what I bet will happen: 1) You'll bend over backwards doing the best job you possibly can, spending nervous energy, pondering how to teach chords best. 2) The guy will practice very little,

I'm sure Tchaikovsky knew the repertoire quite well, and knew what he was 'borrowing' from. But in all seriousness, Tchaikovsky tightened it up a little. I think his version of the idea is better.

12. J Soo - Intermezzo (from Faschingsschwank aus Wien, op. 26) Awesome, absolutely awesome. I don't remember hearing this before, but I loved it. With all that intensity and constant arpeggiating, it reminded me of Chopin 10/1. Great playing. 13.
