,,,Would it be a bad idea to learn how to tune a piano on this platform? Or is that fine?
In my opinion, yes, it would be a bad idea to learn to tune on this piano. If you want to learn how to tune, get an old beater that you won't care about when (not if, when) you make your mistakes as you learn how to tune. Don't learn on your 'good' piano.
I think dogperson nailed it in the above post. What we should be concerned with, and should mean, when we discuss "teaching how to practice" is not the nitty-gritty, day-to-day stuff for a particular piece, but, rather, the idea of teachers imparting an "overall practice strategy" to their students. Below is from the link quoted above (bolding is mine):

Doing things like writing in fingering and sticking to it unless there's a good reason to change it, working in chunks, counting out loud, and all the other things listed in the post, are things that may seem obvious to people with some experience, but are not that obvious to beginners. These are all things that I think fall into a practice strategy that is independent of the the piece or level of experience.
Here is my recently acquired Samick WFG-185 World 6'1 Grand. I will also attach some Before/After photos of some finish repairs that I made. I'm in love with this piano. I would love to hear from others who have played a Samick World and have some thoughts or information about them.
Actually it was at least marked down an additional $2,000 on the “Special Sales” price. I got a pretty good deal on my C3 because they were premiering the new C3X and C7X. I could hear and feel a difference but certainly not a $12,000 difference. Heck for that much price difference I woulda just bought the C5.
I'm having a hard time getting recordings with no mistakes :-/ With this one, if I hadn't hesitated to debate starting over after my wrong note, it might not have been THAT noticeable. Maybe this is a good exercise in learning to try to cover mistakes and just keep going like my teacher always tells me This the best I got after several attempts:
Back home. I am not considering the CA98, polished ebony isnt available anymore, but instead the CA79 in PE. The CA99 is just above budget as is the kawai NV5. I have to draw a line (I thought), but the Yamaha NU1X now made me think twice. The new Casio 510 will be in the showroom in about 2 or 3 days. I will get a call from them when it is ready for a demo. What a big difference in keyboard touch between CA 98 / CLP 685 and the Yamaha NU1X. Even for me as a complete noob I noticed differences. I also tried to play a bit with headphones on. Is it normal to hear the knocking of the keys of the keyboard so load? Especially the higher tones? I thought that all three had the same thing. “Knock - knock” when playing the higher tones with headphones on.
Do you mean the real physical sound of playing the key, or the modelled key noise sound in the headphone output?
"Climate Controlled" has become a catch phrase. Does anyone ever ask what that means exactly? If you have a huge warehouse, it's kind of difficult to keep the heat even. And are they controlling the humidity or just Temperature? You need different machines for that. Are they insinuating that the tuning will stay close to what it was when picked up?
They said the storage was humidity and temperature controlled. That's what I know at this point.
I used to be able to make a link from one of my Gallery images and embed that link into a different forum post. Now when I use the same procedure using img and /img codes before and after the flash string the resulting post shows the string but not the embedded image. Others posting here appear to have the same problem whilst others get their images embedded. Has there been a change to the link process. Also I thought that Adobe Flash was deprecated and of course the Chrome browser will drop Flash this year? Ian
Beemer You once posted a picture of your piano under "My New Piano " (see pg 1 Bluthner grand ,Astropiano )Someone there describes very carefully how to post from the gallery ) Hope someone helps out .
Take the one you like ! I would rather take the Schimmel or the Bechstein, (sigh ) everyone here knew I would say that . The Schimmel being a little taller would have a bigger soundboard, longer strings so better resonance. (theoretically ) Saying that the shorter Bechstein has probably surprised you with its tonal qualities and its response. I have not tried the K series Schimmel, (only the classic) or the 116 Bechstein .(only the Elegance 122 (124?) and the K8 )
Hi all! I’m looking into purchasing an upright piano as my son recently starting taking piano lessons and is really enjoying it. I have done a bit of research, but do not have the amount of knowledge and expertise as many people on this forum I came across someone selling a reasonably priced 2012 Knabe WMV-245 45” upright studio piano, who purchased it new from a reputable piano store with 3 years left on the warranty. Kindly provide any thoughts, opinions and reviews on this piano. Thank you so much!
I tested my Kawai es110 (which name es118 in china) and "seem like" half pedal work. "Seem like" because My skill haven't reach half pedal level so I'm upload video about test method for everyone check again .To split between half and full pedal I'm using ipad to check pedal depth. Have 11 note -first 5 note is no pedal -mid 3 note is full pedal -last 3 note is half pedal I'm not live in china , I bought my DP from china and ship to my country because my county haven't sell it and I chosed kawai es110 instead of roland fp30 and casio px1000 .
I ran out of time to watch the full video, but I really get the impression all the useful information from the video could be provided in less than half the time of the current video, I was losing focus on the information being provided. That is mostly my problem with video content. Morodiene I think gets a better balance between filler & repetition taking up time balanced with new information. I know repetition is important but if you bore your audience they will struggle to maintain concentration.
I turned the playback speed to 1.5x and that helped.
