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.

An adjustable music rack and adjustable bench really come in handy for growing kids and mature players who have to keep adjusting bifocals or readers.

Here's a good starter. Don't know if you had a chance to read it. wink

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.

Samick WFG-185 with Before/After Pictures! Jack Moody 14 minutes ago
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.

Re: Sensitivities on a new piano (GX-3) j&j 15 minutes ago
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.

You don’t need to listen to other interpretations: listen to a few waltzes and note the flow and feel. Apply what you hear.

I 'think' I get it, but I'm not 100% sure. I'll know better come tomorrow I suppose smile

Been practicing the Waltz alongside brushing up on Fur Elise and Czerny etudes. Nothing too terribly exciting but that's how it often is on the eve of a piano lesson.

"Back to Sorrento" from the level 5 performance book

Oh my! That’s gorgeous!!! No mistakes there that I could tell!

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?

They said the storage was humidity and temperature controlled. That's what I know at this point.

Here is the link to their web site explaining it

Re: "Touch" - what does it do? dmd 51 minutes ago
As far as I know …. MIDI only sends which key was pressed and with what velocity. Nothing else.

Changing the "touch" setting will affect the velocity value that is sent.

P.S. It probably sends other messages like …. pedal presses ….

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?

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 .

Re: Yamaha YUS5 vs bechstein k116 vs Schimmel k122 Lady Bird 1 hour ago
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 )

Knabe WMV-245 studio piano reviews? pianomom8 1 hour ago
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!

Re: KAWAI es110 half pedal problem. beginer 1 hour ago
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 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. smile
