Comparing a new upright with a new grand from the same vendor, I would not say that grands have heavier action. They have a more precise action, that's for sure. Yes, inside the action is very different and that's partly why the action of a grand is

Jump to new posts Re: Where to get not published ABRSM exam pieces? by chopin_r_us @ Today at 02:16 AM

Any edits done by ABRSM are optional. You really want to get at first editions and study those. Printouts are fine from IMSLP as long as they are out of copyright in your country.

One of my daughters has been using Leila Fletcher method with her piano teacher. She progressed very well the first 2-3 years but I'm afraid the last 1-2 years have been slow to make a lot of progress. The books take forever to finish. I don't see F

The whole sonata or just the first movement? If you can play the third movement you're pretty advanced. Anyway, if you like that kind of music check out Ludovico Einaudi as well.
