Doing a research project.. Help please.
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:51:31 AM »
Hi guys,

Just doing a small research project - if you can, could you help me by answering a couple of questions? Thanks heaps.

1. As a pianist, what would you say is the most painful thing you encounter related to your music?
2. Do you meet up with other pianists regularly? If so, where?

Again, thanks a lot for your help.

String players.

Classical pianists are generally at each other's throats in my experience. A constant game of who can play the more difficult repertoire.

String players.....
Oh no.  Elderly sopranos and tenors with a wide vibrato...
