Too many variables for a clear "best answer" . . . If you haven't played with the Sound Designer / Virtual Technician, do that first (and prove that "tweaking" won't fix the problem). A pair of LSR308's should be a substantial

That is a cool piece my friend. I am a Dr. John fan and grew up in Mississippi so I can relate with the Nawlins' vibe! Have you practiced it with the tempo at say around 105 bpm? This will allow you to nail the changes and flow. Then speed it up and

Let's see if I'm getting this right...on the list: - a DP. More is better obviously, and technically I could get away with just a DP, if I'm only playing the DP and it has enough tracks/polyphony/etc to get me by. But obviously this would be very b

Thought it would interesting to post some pics. The mechanism seems to work, but the original connection to the pedal was made of some material that has since worn away. Not sure it's worth the cost to restore this functionality, but its interesting

Andrea, That looks like a great alternative considering there is an actual teacher involved. Are you comfortable with the "video exchange" format? Do you actually get access to Christy?

Necessary for what exactly? Is it necessary for pianist to be able to make a suave pasta sauce? No, but it's not an altogether unappreciated skill. Is it necessary for pianists to have read Virginia Woolf? No, but I wish more would have. And so on.

My first stop in Seattle was Classical Grands, where I was met by Steve. It's a part-time business (by appointment only) and I got the feeling that they may not continue after selling their remaining pianos. They had two 7-year old (new) August For

Some teachers don't take beginners at all (of any age). This is not that unusual for teachers who have very, very good training, or well-established performing careers. I'm with Forrest, let's just say congratulations on finding two enthusiastic pos
