More important than my height, is how
pure is my character?


The truest insights into a person's
character are two things:
1. How he treats people who cannot help him.
2. How he treats those who cannot
fight back.

I can take 11 keys and Im not sure how tall I am


Once during a concert at Carnegie Hall, the violinist Rachmaninoff was playing with lost his place in the music and whispered to Rachmaninoff, "Where are we?" Rachmaninoff replied, in all seriousness, "Carnegie Hall".

WOW!Rach.... just wow!
Well I'm guessing you A) are pretty tall and have normally proportioned hands (B) have huge hands compared to your short body (kinda like that dude in that episode of the simpsons who has a whole speech on his hand)
or (C) can dislocate a finger on demand

I can do C-E (octave+M3rd), but can't do Bb-D (octave+M3rd). What gives?

I have some music I'd like to write that includes things like C(-1)-C0-G2-E3 (octave+double_octave_5th+M6th) in the left hand and C5-E5-G5-G7-C8-E8-G8-G9 (Cmaj_chord,another 2 octaves higher,octave) in the right hand. Any suggestions?

Taller people are more likely to have big hands, long fingers, long arms which give them some advantage in playing piano.

I think for the US size, you just add 1. So you would be 13.5 (i think)

I can play a 9th comfortably, and stretch an eleventh. My hands are small for my size, I am told.

USA--do the long fingers offer you a wider span? Usually this has something to do with the width of the palm-I find larger hand pianists complain to me that they have more difficulty negotiating the little figures in Bach, Mozart and double notes. Octaves, no problem.

I am just beginning to play the piano, so I hope I can get an extra key after a lot of practice. The sad situation at the moment, however, is that I can barely reach C-D :-( How to play piano like that???

True, but I do not believe that recording stuck around the catalogue very long. As far as I know, it has never been reissued, and it never pops up on anyone's short (or long for that matter) list of great Rach 3's.

So Bryan, have you had any trouble with the descending octave glissando in the last mvt of Beethoven's Waldstein or near the end of Balakirev's Islamey ascending octave glissando in octaves? I actually play the Waldstein octave glissando as regular octaves--lightly and legato--as long as the action isn't terribly heavy.

I'm 5'9".

My hands are rather square - some people might even say my fingers appear short.

However I can easily span a 10th (as long as both notes are either white keys or black keys).

I actually play the Waldstein octave glissando as regular octaves--lightly and legato--as long as the action isn't terribly heavy.
Although I know about the technique you refer to, I am not advanced enough to have confronted it in the above works or any others. Although I've been making daily progress, I am sure it will be a couple more years before I will encounter that particular problem.

When I improvise, I have much fun, however, with octave and tenth glissandi. It's an easy fit, assuming there aren't too many accidentals.

To be honest, I just don't understand how one can play glissandi so lightly. I'm a bit of a banger. (the one idiom where this is bad LOL)

I would think you should play lots of Rachmaninoff--the monster chords should fit like a glove--compared to the hands of Alicia deLarrocha, who played the Rach 3! I would enjoy watching you play the Chopin Octave Etude and the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody no. 6--and definitely the octave varioation in the Brahms/Paganini Book 1!

6'9" and I should mention I can play a 12th in a song and reach a 13th.

My problem is that my fingers are wide enough that I have a hard time playing in between the black keys. Any pointers on that?

About 6', and can reach an augmented 11th, with a little bit of effort, but I'm still growing.

Pianonoob--yikes--playing 12s in pieces? So learn Rach 3rd Concerto! (I better be careful--I'm only 5'11"--shouldn't get started up with a 6'9" pianist!)

6'1-and-a-half. I can play a 10th easily, 11th with a very light stretch and just just just a 12th if i stretch a lot, Which is more than my piano teacher, who is 6'7"

But I'm 15 and still growing!
