Taping everything would be awkward if you have different note values in the same measure; e.g 3 quarter notes, then 2 sixteenths and an eighth. I usually just tap the beat note but it depends on the music. Sometimes I only tap the strong beat instead

Also change slightly where you strike the keys on the tremolos - move the hand in and out a bit. For the RH tremolos with two notes on top, I think I also had to switch from 5 to 4 while playing to get a better legato sound on the chord changes.

I use Finale 2012 and I love it. I connect it to my midi keyboard and I use hyperscribe to input the notes. You have to be sure to set your note value input at eight notes, sixteenth notes are too unpredictable. Then you can set the click value and p

Key dip is around 10mm and sharps height around 12.5 because that is well for the hand of the pianist. Then the moment the white keys are level influence the touch sensation. And there are limits due to interactions between parts. One thing I not

To the OP, it sounds like you'll be able to play the lower G with your LH, so the original problem is solved. But I just wanted to comment on the thinking behind leaving out notes. The advice to leave out an octave note is good *in general* but it a

It's not ignorance if you don't know what "level" your kids are at. Those exam levels are arbitrary, anyway, and passing a level on any given day does NOT mean the student is truly "at" that level. And not all kids want to show
