care of the piano falling down stairs

First, find a qualified piano technician and consult with them for any mechanical issues. Please ask me if you need a referral. I have several names that I could suggest.

Below are four key issues to consider. Avoid swings in temperature; keep piano away from windows; tune your piano twice a year; and evaluate the optimal location of the piano for student practice.

New pianos for beginners?

abstractI recently read that as the founder of the Talent Education Movement, Suzuki did believe that a parent should always buy the best instrument that he can possibly afford, with the belief that a quality instrument impacts a student’s enjoyment of his musical study.

At his piano lesson, the student is taught to listen carefully to his music and play with a beautiful sound. This is much of what makes it a rewarding and highly valued life experience. If he goes home, and the instrument makes it difficult to achieve these goals, he can become frustrated and discouraged in his practice, and at future lessons.

One of the best ways a parent can help is to ask the student to explain and demonstrate what is on the assignment sheet — not for the purpose of supervising or checking on whether or not the student is doing it correctly, but just to understand what is going on at the lesson. Avoid becoming a second teacher.

It is preferable for a student to focus on specific issues each week, rather than try to change everything all at once. This conversation is good for both the parent and the student.
