The best tip I recently learned of is a post mentioning the Taubman technique. I watched a few videos because I wondered if my piano playing was aggravating on old impact injury to my right hand pinky (5). After a weekend of extend practice time, the pinky joint would remain inflamed and made typing on the computer keyboard or using the mouse at work a struggle. So much so that I had began to wear a finger splint at work.

I'm seeing much improvement now. I didn't need the finger splint this week. I'm taking a break from a 2 hour practice this morning and the resulting inflammation is about 50% less than what it might have been 2 weeks ago.

Many thanks to the sharing & thoughtful community here at Piano World! 😀

I have learned so much on Piano world including, technique suggestions, pieces I have now studied because I like them so much, but more than anything else the following post from "twocats," turned out absolutely amazing after my technician raised the pitch on my piano from A440 to A443. Not only do I love how it sounds, but it seems to hold it's tune better than before. My technician was here today and was amazed how close to pitch it stayed even though the seasonal change to summer.

Thank you again Twocats!

P.S. If you don't use an umlaut above the o, the correct spelling would be Boesendorfer.

I had mentioned trying out a higher pitch in the thread about my piano. It's been 8 months now, and changing the tuning to A443 has made an enormous difference. Now every time I sit down I'm amazed at how sweet my piano sounds smile

I wanted to share in case other owners of European pianos want to try the higher tuning. You'll risk of decreasing the tuning stability if you want it set back later, but I told my tech that I'm staying at A443!

Lot's of fantastic info here but for this New-bie 'get a teacher' adds such a fabulous dimension.

As a guitarist for 60 years switching to piano at age 72 , I believe it is all of you who play piano that enjoy a greater sense of peace and humility than many of my guitar friends. No one on this forum seems to want to be worshipped or adored.Not so in the guitar world. There are a few that understand,but most guitar people are very competitive and do not get the 3 rings of musicians:
People who play an instrument, instrument players, and instrumentalists. There is a difference.
At my age I would be very happy to play a piano. On guitar, I am a guitar player. Unfortunately guitarists, pianists,the masters,etc.rarely become rich and famous. Kudos to those masters that have done it all. Soooo, the most I get from the forums is a “feel” that it’s ok to extract your joy from music and especially piano.
