When the key guide plates are replaced, just try the pedal and see how it works. It will need a little grease on it to work well and retard wear. If it feels too hard to the foot, replacing the spring with one that fits the keyframe may be the wisest

Seems that optical requirements change greatly as we progress through this maelstrom called "time"! As one who has 20/20 vidion (minus 20 that is) all i can add here is that every optician, sorry, optemitrist, gives me a different prescrip

I think you need to be kind, accommodating, and firm. The best thing you can do is treat the student like any other normal student, with whatever reasonable allowances are necessary for the joint custody situation. If it were my student I'd: - Make s

I love my BiLiPro USB plug-in pedal. It used to baffle me why people would use more expensive Bluetooth technology when you never need to have your pedal farther away than a USB cord allows. Now however the cost has come down on the bluetooth devices

The CP4 sells for $2299.99, definitely not in the same price range as the other keyboards your looking at. You should take a look at the Yamaha CP40 which currently retails at $1399.99. It competes price wise with the Roland RD300nx, although I

Glad you have it sorted. They always used to ask for diminished of key, then changed it for some years to dim starting on note. I hadn't caught up and maybe the technical workbook hasn't either!

Brian, Sorry if I wasn't clear. I'm not intersted in the adult version because it seems to be a dead end and I don't care for a lot of the music in the adult book 2. However, I am considering using the accelerated method. I'm just not sure if I shoul

No way of knowing without inspecting it. Odds are though that the action is in poor condition and replacement of many or all parts is likely needed.

I've almost learned the melody and block chords for mine, but Weds I'm going over to a singer-friend's house and we're going to do GASB stuff. So if it kind of works out maybe I'll do comp and she can sing on a recording! That would be a treat. But p

I should add a disclaimer for anyone who might have listened. Certain passages sound overpedaled, but that's the way that my professor and my accompanist were telling me to play. They insisted that in a large hall, lots and lots of pedal is needed.

I agree with Bennevis -- Pletnev is an amazing pianist, though some of his interpretations are idiosyncratic. I DO like the Pletnev Scarlatti set, and I also enjoy his Scriabin. I'm also a big fan of almost everything recorded by Ivan Moravec -- es

Hey Possum280 How did you perceive the acoustical playing noise of the keybed? I played the PX150 a while back, and found the action very nice, but a bit too thumpy up AND down. (I'm used to the Kawai ES100 which is very quiet overall) I was just

Maybe we should found a Piano Addicts Anonymous group. On the other hand, I am not sure 100% if it is really bad to be addicted to the piano. Or maybe I am just finding excuses to justify my behaviour...
