One of my teachers informed me that every time I played his piano it would go out of tune, and I had broken more strings than any other student. Turns out I hit the keys way too hard when I was trying to. I think this might be a common problem for pe

Unless they can measure very correctly, you won't know the model until you get there. There was no Academy piano at that time so it is a C. Bechstein. They had aggraffes all the way up the treble. Make sure you look carefully for a cracked plate.

This is lovely! It feels happy and cheerful, fast moving with a macro melody. It is rich harmonywise, and I will try to analyse it. I'm also going to contemplate on a similar piece in minor, but again, only using the natural scale. Thank you!
