A Technique forum
« on: October 09, 2013, 07:16:49 AM »
A lot of thread topics about technique often fall into either the students' corner or the performance forum.  Wouldn't it be better if there was a separate forum specifically for technique so that threads would be appropriately placed?

This would add another forum, however, but I think consolidating other forums so that Piano Street would be tidier would be in the best interest of the site.

how can you separate technique from performance or musicality?
they're interrelated, unless you're a total noob who needs advice on scales and arpeggios.

Being rather vitriolic endless slanging matches between various schools of thought.

Wouldn't it be better if [those] technique .. threads would be appropriately placed?

Then how about moving technique threads into the performance forum so that it isn't in two different forums?

Also, even in the repertoire forum there are technique threads that would better be placed elsewhere.
