I started on the piano and picked up the violin a few years later. The year I sat for my 'O'-levels, I also took the ABRSM Grades 5 and 8 exams. Crazy time. I've recently returned to playing both instruments, and began with a community orchestra last

I'd agree with other's comments - check out other brands as well. A U3 would be fine. Plenty of people went through University with U3 pianos or equivalents (or lesser pianos) - here, most institutions have U3 YAMAHA or KAWAI equivalent practice ro

In general, Louis, I'm not entirely certain what causes you to speak to me in such a dismissive, belittling manner but I'd rather you didn't. You've done the same at other times when you have had occasion to speak to me directly. I am not a terribl

I'm not sure what the point of this post is. To trash the competition? To trash the 2012 winner? To question the integrity of the jury? I'm surprised the OP has not heard of the Honens since it's been around for over 20 years and is pretty well reg

Who said the piano was an historical instrument? I said the family had a nostalgic connection to it, and nowhere did I say it had any bearing on its external value. At best, it's worth exactly what any other Steinway of its vintage would be. Somew

Hi Gary, I don't understand why you feel at war with everybody else. If your method is really great, why not publish it complete with your exact teaching specifications? I think it's good to play a lot for your students. Do you sometimes let them pl

It's charming little piece. I just don't hear much lamentation. The dictionary.com definition of a lament (using the term as a noun) is: 5. an expression of grief or sorrow. 6. a formal expression of sorrow or mourning, especially in verse or song;

So glad to finally have a "new" piano... at least new to me. This is a 1986 5'7" Kawai Ge-2. Just moved in and needs another tuning for sure, but I love her. And the dog, too. This is your typical southern baptist, chord-heavy arr

MIDI sequence tracks on a keyboard eat into the polyphony just as if you were playing it with your hands. No you don't get 64 voices per track... though that would be most excellent. In this day and age it's easy enough to get a DAW and record the a

Forget about a midi. You need reasonably computer music productions skills and have produced a good recording. You need a clean publisher ready score. You need to network. It never hurts to join a group, even if it's just a community chorus. Voluntee

It's been a few months, but I thought I'd share a short video of the Kawai GE-2 in action. It was tuned a month after it was moved in and now, a month later, it definitely needs another tuning. It's taking some time getting adjusted to its surroundi
