I've never actually met someone with fingers so thick they couldn't fit between the keys.. there must be some real gorilla paws out there for this to be so incredibly common.

I'm always fascinated to watch a pro tuner go to work. I've seen my parent's piano tuned by a tech with a tuning strobe, by an old school tech who only used tuning forks, and techs who used a combination thereof. However it's done, every time I see

I consider Wilh.Steinberg IQ as great pianos. By now I haven't got a chance to try one, but their sounds are very decent, magnificent, and forceful. They have similarities with other German makes, but also possess a distinctive character, which I'm q

I have to practice counting aloud off the piano. Otherwise, I sort of semi whisper. Once I'm confident in my counting, a stronger voice comes out. It seems to be a lack of confidence issue in my case. Maybe yours too?
