Back to the audience again...... Is he shy? I'd much rather have watched his face and hands. It's a brilliant concert regardless.

The floor to keytop distance is usually in the range of 28 to 29 inches. It is sometimes a bit higher on uprights. Not sure how much the distance varies from under the keybed to the floor.

There's a local eBay-like marketplace for the university where I work. One of the flags for a scam is, did they upload a picture of the actual item, especially if it's a big-ticket item? Not that it's any guarantee, but for instance: A MacBook for sa

Well, my teacher "pushes" me... but usually I get a pass before I reach the required tempo which is often too fast for me. I stick to the written fingerings, I usually don't change a thing unless I find something quite uncomfortable or if

Having heard you play in the ABF recitals, my advice is...stop worrying. You are a very competent pianist! Before you begin playing, remind yourself that everyone in the audience wants you to enjoy performing for them, as much as they want to enjoy

Jump to new posts Standard keyboard (kneehole) and pedal heights? by Withindale @ 04/26/16 09:46 AM

What are the standard ranges of keyboard (underside, kneehole) and pedal (top, front) heights on upright and grand pianos? I am wondering if the Ibach is a bit low at just over 60 cm (24 inches) with its post WWII replacement legs and castors - and a

I agree with you both, it's a challenge, to be sure! My last teacher many years ago dropped the method book I was using but as we went forward, I learned almost no theory. I really had no idea of what I was playing and it became mostly memorization.

I've had a couple of tries at Schumann's Wild Rider. It's a fun piece. I got the first section down but then kind of lost intertia. The speed was the hurdle I couldn't get over. I'm working on Chopin Prelude Op28 No 6. Hands separate only so far,

Devil's advocate comment: "If some guy prefers his second hand $200 Casio to a Steinway grand, or a $200,000 simulated Steinway grand, so be it. There's no right or wrong in this business. It's all a matter of personal taste."
