You should use an adapter that allows you to also keep the wall charger plugged in, so you don't have to worry about the iPad running out of power while you're using it with your piano. Apple makes one: https://www.amazon.com/Apple-MK0W2AM-Lightning-Camera-Adapter/dp/B01F7KJDIM ...

It does take time, so play very slowly and be patient. Do not expect to be anywhere near where you were 35 years ago, even if you were quite good. You can do stretches for your fingers, hands, wrists, and forearms which may be helpful, but it's just not something you can rush thr...

Yes there is some sort of muscle memory or deep cellular memory that kicks in isn't there? I have picked up some easier Chopin pieces I played confidently in my twenties (like thirty years prior) and after going "Ye gods!" To myself looking at the score, after the first...

It can indeed be quicker and better to tune the piano twice (no matter what). If you concentrate and move fast, the first time through (not talking pitch raises here) will result in some errors (don't fret about them), but it will also result in some notes being right on the mo...

Away from the piano, plant your fingertips on a tabletop (or anything else solid like the fallboard). Keeping the fingertips in one position (as if they were pressing keys), try to move your wrist from side to side. Don't hurt yourself or do it to an extreme, but its a good way t...

Thank you all for your wisdom. I suppose that an ideal piano design would have an oveall back scale gradually increasing from trebble to bass as soundboard mobility increases from trebble to bass to match the strings frequencies. I cant figure why from high trebble to low tenor w...

Steinway rarely (if ever) does anything just for the fun of it, or to intentionally make life difficult. There is doubtlessly a good reason behind the design. However, it is possible I suppose that they had this thin material around for some years and didn't know what to do with ...

I would like to use some of my iPad's Piano Apps with my Roland FP-30 and was wondering whether anyone here has been successful with that? I'm figuring that this cable, connected to a regular printer USB cable might do the trick. - Any thoughts? (I know that connecting the iPa...

I've had several broken pedals welded over the years and never had a problem with them breaking again. I do this mostly because it is usually more work to replace the pedal, especially on an old piano that you can't get an exact replacement for. And if you replace one pedal on an...

Fareham: A couple of years ago, I rebuilt a 2004 Steinway D action using an all WNG action, at my customer's request. I have been using WNG parts in my grand rebuilds since about 2010 almost exclusively, so I have a lot of experience with them. While the WNG whippen can be se...

After a brief couple of searches, I decided to just pose the question: The Steinway O that I am currently working on has the old two-layer bushings in the guide rail. I think on the last one I did, I opted to just use a very thick single layer - probably a good woven under-stri...
