Instructions - Install low-cost SoftWare concert grand piano
It needs a computer, an audio interface a decent keyboard and headphones or speakers. Because the MIDI controllers called keyboards do not create their own sound, which is also their great advantage. Even the most expensive keyboards can't really work with the digitized Sounds compete.

Stu Harrison - Compare Kawai ES-110 with Roland FP-30X

KAWAI ES-120 - Announced as successor to the ES-110 for August.
Those who want to do without the newly implemented Shigeru Kawai and USB, can make a great bargain by buying a - then considered obsolete - ES-110.


Not only do they look extremely similar visually, but the colors of the companies (shown here in the original) are very close to each other.
KAWAI builds the best sounding concert grand pianos !
Roland builds the best sounding digital piano !
Even renowned manufacturers like Korg, Kurzweil and Yamaha fall out of this quality segment, as Korg, Kurzweil and Yamaha fall out. CASIO can still keep up to some extent.
However, if you do not want to or can not spend so much money, but still want to enjoy an official sound, we recommend:

Admittedly, it looks a bit old-fashioned, as if it came straight out of the 1960s, but it has the latest technology.

Even if with most magazines in some form a sponsor is in it and/or behind it sponsor is in it and/or behind it, it is quite obvious with Amazona. offernsichtlich, managing director is Hans Thomann. With this, even if not badly made sales magazine remains naturally - an objective evaluation of the products - on the distance.

Chaun C. Chang - Fundamentals of Piano Practice
Meanwhile already a real FreeWare classic!
American researchers have found out the fastest way to learn to play the piano, by dividing the exercise into parts about 10 seconds long, then playing them and not playing them for 10 sec. not playing. In this 10 - 10 rhythm, play through all the individual parts of the piece. It is said that this way the learned material is consolidated faster and more intensively.
It seems to work, if only I wasn't so lazy....
