I'll be getting my first (and quite likely last) Grand this year (probably February), so I'm hyped up for the year. My goals for the year in random order: To learn at least one piece that's graded 7 ABRMS Learn a whole lot of easier ones (anything from 4-6) currently in my rang...

Hi All, I just came back to the forums to sign up for MOYD for 2018. Last year's effort was successful, so I will hopefully duplicate it again this year. I haven't had a lot of time to read the forum; so much so, that I missed my annual piano anniversary post by several weeks; i...

I've used some of the books, not extensively, and I find them quite interesting. It's a structured way of approaching improvising and I think helpful to introduce students to it who have no background. They were recommended to me in the non-classical subforum on Pianoworld, so y...

My Amazon review from 2007: Chang's book has a few good points, but for the most part I find it poorly written. Its like he handed his rough notes to the publisher and they printed it. Its seems unorganized and disjointed. I find it hard to follow. I'm not even sure he's a playe...

Following on from a couple of recent threads I'm wondering if there is a ratio relationship between the let-off butt gap and the dimension of the aftertouch measured at the key using a slip gauge? Is the ratio the same as the key to hammer ratio? Ian...

@Terry Michael, you are of a very nice heart! You know? In our country, the sort of music performed with these instruments is so rare. To find a good instrument is not easy. Pianos, keyboards, guitars are more popular here. However, a lot of people have pianos in their living roo...

Peter, On my piano the jack does return after lifting the key 1/3 way up, but only if I do this quickly as when playing a trill. I had thought that with correct back check positioning the jack would always have clearance without sliding along the "tail" leather of th...

Hello Zac, If you're using a Mac, latency should be less of an issue. I expect the output connector on the laptop will be a stereo 1/8" output, while the AvantGrand probably uses separate L/R 1/4" Line In connectors, so you will need a cable with the correct connector...

The situation is a bit more complicated: . . . Even if you start with a good condenser microphone, its analog output signal is going to be . . . digitized, so that Skype can transmit it. Skype won't use a high-resolution / high-sample-rate signal from an "audio interface&...
