Some things are intrinsically hard to read, and this is one of them. Reading and memorization aren't separate things, they're the ends of a continuous scale. So, for those things that are too hard to read in real time, slide towards memorization, a

For the same reason why you don't want an N3 might be the same reason why you might find a used or store demo N3 for a savings. I got a pretty good deal on a floor demo. Everyone feels better when they can get a deal. I've owned mine since 11/2011 a

At this point, I won't speculate until I've heard both the 605 and LX-7 side by side. if I've learned anything over the years, it's not to judge an instrument on it's specifications. i would rather judge it on the overall package. Especially as i

Hi. What you say makes a lot of sense, but I should clarify my posts. Hugh Sung doesn't recommend Pischna in place of Hanon. The Pischna exercises are brought in as possible exercises to help with mastering particularly difficult passages in a pie
