• Could I become famous?

    I've been playing piano my whole life (I am 17). I practice everyday for hours. I play very advanced pieces (my piano teacher struggles playing them).

    I've been playing piano my whole life (I am 17). I practice everyday for hours. I play very advanced pieces (my piano teacher struggles playing them). I've been to numerous concerts of famous pianists including those who have performed at Carnegie Hall. I am able to play their pieces. (I play Classical, btw). I was just wondering if my piano playing could get me anywhere. Seeing all of these famous pianists play songs that I can play just makes me wonder.

  • Does Piano ever get any easier?

    Okay, so I started playing piano not too long ago. I already know both the clefs because of other reasons. The problem is transferring the notes and trying to play with two hands both doing different things is exhausting. Like mentally and physically exhausting.

    Okay, so I started playing piano not too long ago. I already know both the clefs because of other reasons. The problem is transferring the notes and trying to play with two hands both doing different things is exhausting. Like mentally and physically exhausting. After practicing piano for a while I have to go take a nap, or read an easy book because it just puts so much strain on my brain to play piano. Does this ever get any easier? I mean I know any musical instrument is hard to learn (which I know how to play a couple), but this is on a completely different scale. I have to divide my attention to the piano and nothing else while practicing it. I don't have anything in the room that could even possibly distract me. Anyway I'm getting off track for anyone whos been playing piano for a while does this ever get easier? Like is there a point where your hands just adjust to doing two separate things at the same time? Do you ever get faster at reading both clefs simultaneously?

  • I am in love with the violin. I have been playing the piano for 7 years. Should I switch?

    Best answer: There is nothing wrong with playing two instruments. Whether you actually enjoy the violin or not, after you take it up, you will be glad you tried. I can play more than one but never had access to learning the violin. I still want to learn. Try it, and you'll either enjoy it, or get the desire out of your... show more

  • Who is the 'Antonio Stradivari' in Guitar making?

    Best answer: Hi Olivia. I think I understand what you're asking. Stradivari (or rather, Stradivarius) is a household name. So is Steinway.

    Best answer: Hi Olivia. I think I understand what you're asking. Stradivari (or rather, Stradivarius) is a household name. So is Steinway. Mention those names to anyone and they'll know you're talking about violins and pianos, even if they have never touched either instrument in their lives. I don't think there is a guitar maker from history that makes that claim. If you were to mention the name of a famous Spanish or Portuguese luthier it's likely that only a few experts and scholars would prick up their ears.

    I think it's also fair to say that the guitar is still in development. While there have been changes to the violin since Stradivari's time, they are not so drastic as the changes made in guitar design since its beginning. Indeed, Stradivari did build guitars. There are five extant and a neck from an unfinished sixth, but the design he used was abandoned long ago and never achieved the status of his violin design. Most people don't know that Stradivari made anything but violins.

    In researching the history of the guitar I'm sure you'll need to look toward Spain and Portugal rather than Italy. You will probably find the great names in early guitar making there. But they would only be history. They wouldn't be 'living' names the way that Stradivarius is.
