    Playing piano is a cultured skill... it requires someone who is refine and able to appreciate the beauty of sound and peace of mind. The same goes for all other music instruments players. Music promotes peace and calms the mind and soul.

    Not suitable for somebody who is always scheming and harbouring evil thoughts.

    ME ME ME ME!!!!!!!!

    Music is my passion and profession. I would rather die if someone chopped my hands off or I couldn't play the piano anymore

    www.asiapiano.com.sg/company.htm

    Look for "Amery Reuben" .. thats me...

    Take note that this website belongs to a close friend's piano shop...it is not my shop. I just have confidence in his pianos as I usually go to Japan to help them select 2nd hand Yamaha and Kawai pianos when I do my other business there. Fun lah...you realise that not even two Yamahas sound the same..hehe

    sorry la..shameless advertisement...but i'm looking for students as well....gotta buy my 70-200 2.8L soon.....

    In case you don't know what I have been playing all along... I've been using a Professional upright grand U3H for the pass 22yrs. And my sifu is Patrick Foo. Many ppl in the keyboard/guitar/piano industry knows who is Patrick Foo.

    That's why I say you can't be serious.

    Haiz... an amateur and a naive reply.

    Whose pianist's piano here is not over 10yrs - 20yrs? A good piano can last at least a 100yrs. For most grands and professional piano reach its peak sound performance when it is in its 20s/30s.

    You mean you owned a piano and you don't know about this???

    Doubtful... very doubtful...

    I was thinking about 1 piano 4 hand as it is easier to be able to rehearse and harder to find 2 pianos. Oh thats a nice piece you are working on. Are you currently learning under any teacher?

    I love Rachmaninoff's music and play some of them too. Do you play any of his other pieces? Well i would say there are many Rachmaninoff's lovers and also many who dislike his music. You either love or hate him.

    his works all big big mah...except for a precious few...

    I don't really fancy 1 piano 4 hands....abit too cluttered for my liking...2 pianos not hard to find...for one, my house lah...but I live in JB (I work/teach in Singapore though..haha)

    I'm a full time pianist lah..teaching is my main source of income, and hence I reiterate....WHO WANTS TO LEARN???? www.asiapiano.com.sg/company.htm --> scroll down to "Amery Reuben" thats me..and if u ever want to rehearse on more than one piano, can always pig out at this aforementioned piano shop, which belongs to a close friend of mine.

    I think the most ingenious and so called "satisfying" to play...when you play the piece you just feel the "ooomph"...is Rachmaninoff's Violin Sonata no.3 from JS Bach..the transcription. Not for big hands either...and very nice and light.

    I think I do not follow the trend of "Avant Garde" in Singapore lah..I still can't grasp why the general concert crowd classifies Beethoven/Bach/Busoni/Chopin and so on as "old". I still prefer to play music that has a melodic line running through it, be it in the bass or somewhere in the middle. Don't you agree?

    Haha, i wont term Beethoven, Bach, Busoni or Chopin as old, as i play and love much of their works, but well for example Chopin's Ballades, they are all very nice, but who would want to go listen to them again unless we are talking about Pletnev, Zimerman etc etc. Thats the mentality over here, thus the pianists are more adventurous in avant garde and contemporary pieces...

    Interesting idea... 1 piano, 4 hands. But not many emsemble pieces I know of that really allow that. A little restraint.

    One suggestion is maybe can book the piano practice room at Esplanade library. They have a acoustic piano and a roland digital piano there in the same room. Acoustic and Digital combination although gives a somewhat unique combination, but it does sounds great as it adds a refreshing tinkle to classicals.

    haha yeah you need 2 pianos to play stuff like the concertos 2 piano reductions. But there are still many interesting pieces written for 1 piano 4 hands still. Not long ago i went to this concert at NUS conservatory played by Albert Tiu and Thomas Hecht. They played some interesting repertoire that includes a very "sexy" Astor Piazolla's Oblivion that Albert Tiu writes himself. Recently, i come across this Schubert's Fantasie that is simply beautiful. Anyone interested in taking a look at the score?
