Normally I'd agree with you about the quote, but given that Joe has tried to convince us for the last 2 pages that the third sensor was useless, I couldn't resist the temptation :)) Not too long ago (just when the piano was coming to be), there were

Jump to new posts Do you teach arpeggios in inversions? by Piano d'Amore @ 04/29/16 01:50 PM

I am wondering if any of you teach your students to play arpeggios in inversions. I notice that "The Complete Book of Scales, Chords, Arpeggios, and Cadences" from Alfred's Basic Piano Library includes arpeggios in inversions, but I do not

Open headphones - Philips Fidelio X1 or X2. Very comfortable for long listening, only 32-Ohm, pure sound. Personally I think about it for future.
