Have you found anything that helps you practice or play more/better?
Yes, a teacher. The applies friction by yelling in my ear to slow down.

Rather than start another irreverent Friday thread, I thought I'd just add this here:

I have some lingering allergies (welcome, late Spring!) and have been sneezing a bit. Is it "normal" for the piano to "respond" to a sneeze? I mean, it doesn't talk, but I can hear (and feel) the soundboard/strings/something reverberate and resonate if I sneeze while sitting at the bench. Suffice it to say, the digital doesn't do that laugh

Mind if I add?

The hinge on the music stand gets tighter and looser sometimes. It’s a wood hinge I believe?

I’m talking about the stand for the music desk not the hinge that moves the whole music desk back and forth. (Music desk prop maybe?)

I think it’s humidity? It’s summer so getting dryer! Looser since I first got the piano.

Anyone else?

I've experienced this too. I try not to sneeze into the piano though.

Man, we just spent 5 days in New Orleans, and the "foreign" (to me) vegetation was in full bloom. Hay fever really wore me out.

Ja, it's also the same key that you are sneezing in, the same key responds. I noticed that since the action is not in the piano. So now I'm singing in a certain key and then I'm guessing which string it is smile

Oh me too, I always turn away and sneeze into my elbow. But I still feel the piano kind of rumble (and when it does, I feel it in my chest).

It must be 15 years or so since I last suffered from hay fever. But this year in central London I have once or twice found myself developing a paroxysm of coughing, due to some sort of pollen - probably, I think, from the plane trees. Anyway, I have discovered a marvellous cure, and I thought I would report it here, so that other hay fever sufferers might benefit. The answer is simple - I put on my FFP2 face mask, and the coughing stopped straight away!

If my uprights the top lid is open and I speak loudly facing the piano I can hear some sort of echoe or reverberation not from the strings but the soundboard.😆 (at least I do not think it's the strings.)I need to try it again sometime again.
