For all work applications (Broadway shows) I use Macbooks with SSD. Over the past few years I've purchased and set up around 100 of them - very robust and reliable. We use RME interfaces because they're also quite reliable. But on these shows someone

A writer will tend to regard words as expressing what s/he means and that others will understand; a painter similarly through painting; a composer through music. What is (and I know some will disagree) clear - to me at any rate - is that one art form

This is a wonderful performance -- the turbulence and tenderness so characteristic of early Scriabin come shining through in your interpretation. I'm not sure why you think of this as a work in progress. Only a few false notes here and there; when

I think it's pretty dependent on the child and personality. I started lessons at age 5. My mother was a good pianist (she played Rach 3 when in her teens), so I had plenty of encouragement. My teacher at the time gave me a notebook to record my pr

I'm very excited to be learning a piece I have long wanted to play. It's the Chopin Prelude no 17 in A flat Major. I heard a recording of it. I mistakenly thought it sounded easy to play. Years ago, looked at it, and was totally overwhelmed. N

I feel like Pluto.tv does a good job of making it seem like youíre still watching TV - but itís internet content, and there's an app, and it's free. For some strange reason, I really like the concept of channels and shows, even if it is, ultimately,

Not to nit-pick but you said MAY. Regardless, my main issue is your assertion that being concerned about changing any part of the tone or harmonics makes you a purist. Perhaps we simply have a different definition of the word. No worries.

Not sure about the weight issue. Older pianos tended to be pretty heavy. My 1896 6'4" Hallet and Davis weighed nearly 1100 pounds. It was built like a lumber yard. The same with the larger Mason and Hamlin's. More modern pianos with better

I'm looking to find an Everett console to buy/refurbish. I have read that some older pianos have a unique action, sometimes referred to as an "X-type". Any idea when this was used? Is it a problem in terms of repair? If so, could I easily r
