Protective film is safe. It's used on all kinds of expensive delicate surfaces from a wide range of products - electronics , furniture, soft painted metals, autos , planes etc... But like others said you probably don't need it anyway.

A famous pianist said that playing is--of course--subjective, but that it doesn't take long to hear when someone is doing it all wrong. 😀 What's disappointing to me is the condescension and crassness of YouTube comments in general and, to a lesser

Hello Goldie123, thank you for the update. I'm glad to hear that there was no problem with your ES100 after all. Regarding the ES100 vs the ES110, the ES110 features the same piano sounds, improved speakers, improved keyboard action, line out conne

In my humid neck of the woods, Kawai pianos (uprights and grands) need easing of the key balance rail hole to reduce friction in the key. Some benefit from alcohol and water solution to reduce friction on tight hammer shank flanges (grands, mostly)

I have everyone polish every piece, and then review old pieces periodically so they have an active repertoire of things they can really play, but I distinguish between repertoire and reading exercises. The repertoire pieces can take anywhere from a c

A former Roland employee said there are four different models. http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/2493213/56.html#Post2555601 That doesn't preclude JoBert's answer from being correct.

I've played this. Not as well as I'd like though The first example seems pretty straightforward, just one note in LH, and 15 for the RH octave. Maybe 12 or 21 on the repeated note if that helps with speed. (It's such a short excerpt that I honestly

Having the conversation with your teacher sounds like a great idea. Her response could provide you a nice framework for learning--or conversely her response might make it clear that she hasn't got a clue. It should be fairly easy for you to discrim

That's not atypical of Brahms' writing; hemiolas and off-beat stresses or accents are frequent, in my experience. I hear it the way you do, but without too much emphasis, and I simply shift my feel of the rhythmic pattern when it begins to coincide

Nice. Looks like Roland had everyone drop the price of the RD-800 recently to make room for the RD-2000, because the RD-800 used to cost $2499 in the US up until very recently.
