Well, lead oxide isn't nice stuff - quite toxic for the body. But I think your ingestion while playing will be nil. I don't think it will aerosolize really. Oxidising of key leads is a problem mechanically in older pianos, but if it was a real health hazard, I think we would h...

Patrick, this is great news. I plan to come with Mr Casinitaly, and we are fine with either location. We've already been to Nuremburg (as you know! ) and loved it, we'd be happy to go back, no problem. On the other hand, the Rhine location looks absolutely spectuacular and we'...

So I played the CLP-685 yesterday and was very impressed. I currently have a 20 year old Yamaha CLP (I forget the model number) so I was impressed to hear the difference in quality. Especially in the keyboard action. But since I never use the external speakers I was wondering if ...

In my experience, those who memorize easily are usually the weakest readers. They use their memory to upload the notes as soon as possible, so they don't have to keep looking at the book. They are also the ones who stare at their hands the whole time, lest the keys will get up an...

The question is fair: these 2 chords, as written, drop out of style - sound more jazzy. The problem, however, is in wrong printed notes in melody; Clapton sings " Way-ting By Your Side " on G# -- E-E F#- E E-- . In other version: G#-- G- EE E-- BTW , in second mea...
