Guys, y'all have to remember that a perfect pitch only comes in childhood. So not at all, a good digital it's not bad, and it's even better than a cr***y acoustic out of tune. Ok, and about technique, with a good teacher, the kid will develop a goo

Regarding the key noise: maybe I could have positioned the camera better, BUT, when listening to myself playing, I can't help but noticing the key noises that come out, which sadly stops me from practicing late at night, like I intended to when I pur

I guess I'm really concerned about the key noises because I use this piano mostly to practice at night in order to avoid disturbing other people, so my volume is usually turned pretty low. I agree that when the volume is turned up, the key noise dimi

For what it is worth, I have a 22 year old Roland JV1000 workstation synth. About 10 years ago it suddenly started switching itself off and resetting without warning. I could no longer use it as a gigging keyboard because it became so randomly unre

http://youtu.be/U37SB4i54JU Here, the melody is the top line, and needs to be played with a singing tone, just like a singer would sing it (Mozart's music is very operatic in nature - even his piano music), and nicely phrased and 'breathed', with eb

The piano was owned by the teacher from new since 1982. My daughter is a beginner and just started 2 years ago. The main concern for me is that my daughter gets what she needs in these 3-5 years and we could easily sell it after that since we are mov

Clearing up the earlier confusion. This morning when Polyphonist asked if I wanted to take the first one, it was sort of informal and not formatted in a table, so I didn't know it was the "claims" version. I was going to go at it in the ne

Hi SwissMS, yes my teacher and I both have the Teacher's Handbook, and we do follow it now. We didn't follow it in the beginning, but around grade level 4, I began to really hit the wall in my progress, and became a bit discouraged and frustrated.

Klonk, can you list 4 or 5 songs/tunes that you have in mind. I'll try playing around with just about anything and see what happens. Are you simply talking about McCoy Tyner's style. Amazing but I'm not familiar with his stuff. But do you have some

I own one and like it very much. I haven't played enough gigs to say love. I think about in these terms. Two powered monitors sound great to you as the player but the sweet spot fades. The allure of the SS, to me, is a combination of only having to b

Just because you overpaid for a Yamaha Boesendorfer, doesn't mean the Steinway dealer will compensate you for the entire price. Just be glad that you can get a great piano with an awesome trade-in deal!
