Another question for the experts. I have Ivory keys and all but the very highest have a super dulled appearance where the top C key is quite glossy. I believe the keys need to be polished but I am not sure the best way to go about doing this. I have a black and decker polisher...

So recently i im looking for an upgrade from my Casio PX-860 I had the chance to play on Roland GP607, and also in the Yamaha U1J. I would like to know what you guys think about each one. Certainly, i intend buying an acoustic piano, but the Roland is also a heck of instrument....

Is it right to say the Dampp Chaser mostly only works on the soundboard? Since the heating rods are placed under the piano and convection carries the warm air upward, I would imagine not every part of the piano is being dehumidified evenly. I got an ultrasonic humidifier with th...

If you were to find use shigerus they would most likely be the older type (Pre-2012, without the -L on the end) that has the millennium II action, and I believe are a bit shorter than their respective replacements. Having tried several shigerus I would say the owners of one would...

You guys didn't read my meaning. If you teach piano from say 3:30 pm to 9 pm, you will have very little time to see your children weekdays. That's when school-aged children need their parents. Then it's the same on Saturdays, and for some people, Sundays. But I guess you're assum...

Follow-up questions/thoughts; 1. Do these girls share a lesson? How long is it? How long have you worked with them? How old are they? 2. It's too bad you didn't take dad up on his offer to meet with you for 15 minutes. That would have been ample time to congratulate him on his i...

The Nord piano samples rock. Just have to find the right way to play them, e.g. Nord Piano 2, Nord Piano 3, Nord Stage 3 with a decent controller (current setup), or something else. As a Nord fan, I tend to view everything they do as bringing game. Biased, I know. But they ...

You might want to add "digital hybrid" to the comparison list. Real acoustic action, digital sounds. Most of the "feel" of a real acoustic grand, none of the hassle (like tuning!). Seriously, that's an issue these days. Where I live, none of the piano tune...

Chris, I think this would create buzzes and could damp the string so much as to kill the tone. It might work for the string rest between V-bar and tuning pins if the problem is there....

I agree why would someone take lessons and not practice. I take two 2-hour lessons a week, the teacher stays on track and I work the entire 2 hours. I practice every day, but it does not mean I can still play the lesson well. Some times you can practice but still "not ge...

Sincere thanks to Keith for sending me this article. It is very well written and the diagrams are very helpful. Voicing is something I've done a little of only when one or two notes stand out too far, but mostly I'm intimidated by it enough to leave it alone. However I have a few...
