Pianist Corner - Non Classical

It is just necessary to clarify: I have written the very first step, which immediately turns the rhythmic and articulatory aspect of playing in the direction of jazz; but "swing eighths" - a whole complex of phenomena relating to historical development of jazz....

Not even slightly ready! I've switched to a new teacher, and to jazz, and the focus is not on pieces at the moment but on chords, chord progressions, etc. I'll see if I can brush up an old piece or something....

The best option for this forum is, as MusicaMusique wrote above, to not link to an image on another site, but to upload the image to the forum here, and then link to that uploaded image. That has the additional advantage that the post with the image will still work many years fro...

Thanks for the reminder, New pieces are going quite slow with my new teacher who puts the bar is a lot higher. So I will again submit a quite simple piece. I'm working on 2 other pieces that are a bit more interesting, but those will take quite some time before they are ready for...

My father tried a few piano lessons when I was starting out. But his fingers were too broad and I think that wrists would have been that flexible either. He soon gave up. If your pupil is keen enough and willing to experiment he may be able to achieve something....

Everyone's innate ability is different. As a child I could sight-read everything that was in my ability to play but didn't memorise anything. A cousin of mine at the age of 5 was the complete opposite. He had only to hear something and he could play it. But practice at anythi...

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

You speak of "rich MIDI data" coming from the keyboard (and pedal). Even though your notion is conjectural, you ought to give some thought to just what information can possibly come from the keyboard beyond the usual "which-key" and "how-fast/how-hard&qu...
