Can you Do It Yourself?

I have been a professional piano tuner for decades, but I still remember well a time when I was a young piano player, knowing nothing at all about tuning. I only knew that to satisfy my ears my piano needed to be tuned about four times a year, with the change of the seasons, and that my parents could only afford to pay for one tuning a year. In a recent popular movie, a teenaged wizard reminds his friends that every skilled person, even the greatest, started out as a beginner. As long as you have no prohibitive physical limitations, you can learn, with time, study, and practice, to do anything yourself.

Beginners Piano Lessons

DO'S

A short check lists of Do's and Don'ts for Parents who students are beginning piano lessons. Make clear to your child at the outset of lessons, in an enthusiastic manner, that music training is a long term process, just like school, but with many high points of pleasure along the way. Your child has his own unique pace, so avoid comparing him to siblings or neighbors’ children who may appear to be playing better than he. Anticipate “ups and downs” in his attitude and progress, along with a number of “growing pain” periods. Seriously contemplate how to help your child. Knowing when to help, when to be supportive, and when to withdraw to encourage him to help himself, is a parental art in itself.

Buying Digital Pianos and Keyboards ?

Buying a digital piano could be a very delicate attempt, especially if you have no idea about pianos in the first place. This article is written to help you out how to choose the best digital piano. For starters, digital piano is different from an acoustic piano in many ways. A digital piano is a copy of what the acoustic or original piano is. However, instead of strings and hammers, it uses digitally sampled sounds, amplifiers and speakers. It was made to imitate the real sound of that of the original piano. Many people now prefer digital pianos. It is because of its portability, low-to-almost non-maintenance, volume adjuster and various voices.

Parents are often disappointed in the length of time their children spend at the piano practicing. Most parents think their children should be practicing longer, and theyre probably right. What parents don't usually get, however, is that for young beginners it takes practice to learn to how practice!

Should I Buy a Digital Piano or an Upright Piano ?

Digital pianos sound nothing like a real piano. Upright pianos take up too much room. There is a lot of conflicting advice floating around. I will give you the right piano buying advice so you can make your own decision on whether the digital piano or the upright piano is right for your needs. Digital pianos were invented about 20 years ago and when they where first introduced they were pretty terrible, the keys were much too light, spongy and nothing like a real piano. The sound was incredibly bright and the sampling was quite dreadful. You couldn't really say that it sounded much like a piano at all.

Digital Pianos

Many families are now purchasing digital pianos to learn on. And why not? They're relatively inexpensive, take up very little space, and produce high quality grand piano sound. But there are certain drawbacks to owning one. For example, it's a good idea to play an acoustic instrument before trying a digital one. Why? Because no matter how well the piano sound is sampled, it will never match the pure acoustic sound and richness of a "live" piano. This factor is very important to some because they want to experience that organic sensibility only a true acoustic can give them.
