I know someone who started from scratch at 38 and passed grade 8 in 5 years. I think commitment is necessary but not sufficient, you need a certain amount of talent to ever play at grade 8 standard as an adult. Maybe something like the top 10% of adults, in terms of "piano a...

Like pianists, perhaps to a lesser extent, violinists are blessed with lots of music written for the instrument. You also get to play music written more exclusive for violinists like Paganini, Wieniawski, Sarasate, Kreisler etc. For a start, have a look at the AMEB exams syllab...

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Yesterday at 07:55 PM
Thanks for all the replies - good to know it's a simple, single midi cord setup. Gombessa, going full VST for the VPC is certainly a nice option - I just figured I could use the MP7's wide array of sounds (at least initially), then as DonZon mentioned, add a VST if/when more soun...

QuoteIf you can only get 5/6 bars a week up to speed this would still support Bruce's comment. And isn't it incredibly boring to practice such a small amount of music over and over for a week? It could well be that I am not skilled enough to finish it properly yet but I will try...

A staccato low note or octave, followed by a leap across a rest and caught in the pedal, is a certain kind of "ringy" accent or articulation, at least as far as I'm concerned. Hard to explain. Mostly, however, it gives permission to "pick up and move" with th...

This is a piece I wrote and performed in my 3rd year of University, the title means Ornithology but I thought Fuglafræði is bit a bit nicer and less confusing as there is already a jazz song of the same name. (It's an Icelandic word as I am Half Icelandic) The piece tries to r...
