Hey, Mario! I am fairly new to the metronome. So far, I prefer to avoid it during the early stages of learning a piece as I find it a distraction from the initial task of learning the notes. I have found it helpful later on, though, when I can move

Thank you for your kind words Phil-60. I've watched some videos by Giovanni Dettori (a.k.a artofcounterpoint) including his Lady Gaga fugue, and that is also where I learned about contrary motions of the melody and bass line. Here is another short p

That was really interesting. Thank you, PianogrlNW. I'm really curious about whether the very interesting analysis by Kapilow reflects the actual mental state of the composer, Arlen, at the time he was composing. Or, does it just reflect Kapilow's m

FWIW -- Yes, the F-20 will be good enough to learn on. If it has "Touch" settings (I think it does), and you want to build up your finger strength, set the "Touch" to "Hard" (or its maximum value). That will require y

Ok I understand, so Kawai wooden key actions are a best match for classical piano experience, and of course a better keys than Kawai RH2/RH3 plastic actions and much better than other plastic actions as Roland PHA4 keys (RD800) and Casio PX and Yamah

Hi, in my hunble opinion, the design philosophy of the next generation of MP should be aimed at improving touch to the successor to the MP11 and weight reduction in the successor to the MP7. Maybe a GF2 or better for MP12 and a triple AHA- IV sensor

Add F# and G to the basic E min chord then when it changes to Am add them to that. The F# and G don't really change the chord, just colour it. The F# turns Em into Em sus2. They add the sixth and flattened seventh to A minor.

Years ago, I purchased the the Haydn/Scarlatti CD Sheet Music disk, randomly happened on the last mvt. of Haydn's Sonata in G Major, Hob. XVI/37, thought it looked interesting, printed it, took it to the piano, and was able to play it like an old fri
