I find differentiating 2 time vs 4 time difficult as well. I use two aural trainers - e-musicmaestro.com and an iPad app called Aural book for practice. Of the two, I like e-musicmaestro.com the best. In two time, a couple of things can help wit

As mentioned by Backto Study Piano, Sauter's RR action is designed to accelerate action response using an extra spring. It's available on several 122 cm and 130 cm models, and I've heard from a couple of sources that it's actually installed in models

Has the piano ever had any service besides tuning? A piano that is played regularly needs to be regulated and voiced occasionally. But if this technician was not responsive to your request, that's a sign that you should try to find another who is a

You might post your query on the piano teacher board, instead of here. Are you just getting together for a first meeting, or is it an actual lesson? If the former, I'd say two pieces are plenty. If the latter, and your lesson is an hour, I'd say thre

Hello Jason, There's not a great deal more I can add beyond Steve's reply. The CA93 is a couple of generations old (CA93-->CA95-->CA97), but features more expressive piano sounds, a more advanced wooden key action, and a superior speaker syst

Behind the beat is a common expression. I've heard late backbeat as well. It's a form of rubato where the backbeat is held back just a tad without influencing the overall tempo. It comes mostly from the blues tradition and therefore runs through

Ya. I've actually come to the conclusion that I'm better off selling it and getting a piano with the type of action I'm looking for. Admittedly I bought this kawai upright as my first purchase as a beginner. So I had no idea what to compare it to.

In that case, a Zoom H4 would be a good idea. Tascam and others also make similar devices, and if you don't need microphones, you could get something like this: http://www.thomann.de/gb/tascam_dp_006.htm Zoom recorders seem to be very well reviewed

I don't think they are worlds apart, I wouldn't categorize any of them as light actions. I think they are close enough that your preference may fall to other things rather than which may feel marginally heavier than the other. Of course, it's been
