I just saw this thread. I started October 2013. I am a very slow learner but have a couple of very good teachers who don't mind my slow progress. I have a piano here, where I work and live, and another couple at my house in Europe. So I have no excus

The difference between two octaves and four is that the inner hand will be more awkward once it's passed the body centre line and synchronisation will be more difficult. This won't be as hard if the hands are already used to scales - er - on a smalle

Mark, Regarding your often-posted comment on "no hearing loss", this may be true for the standard audiograms, such as those you posted on your website. But they typically only test up to 8 kHz (i.e. frequency range required for speech reco

Don't let your students' test results intimidate you. I used to be super uptight, 9 years ago. There are too many factors-- Kids don't care. Parents are too pushy. The kids have a bad day on testing day. The test is skewed. The examiner is bias

I don't use, nor am I likely to use, a page turner and this isn't going to happen, but back in the 18th century, "pedals" were knee levers attached to the underside of the instrument. A knee lever could activate a page turn even whilst usi

It is a good article. Thank you. There is only one thing that the writer did not mention: He keeps writing about "mistakes" and how the top three pianists handled mistakes. It might be better to think of how they handled difficult passa
