Re: Delicia Repair

Always received a prompt (2-3 working days) and fair response when communicating with Delicia; however I first called them and then we continued by email. Contact was Stanislava Koutna, she speaks english. That was a few years ago (2016), when their website was still in english and czech. Today thei...

Re: where do i go now?

I have been reading your posts over the past few months with much interest but even more incredulity. Me too ... Look here's a video about how to swim without water, I know it's not accordion related, but it may be something able to let us feel about the difference between "playing the notes" and "...

Re: Which Score writting programme ?

For years I've used FINALE NOTEPAD, the "lite" and free version of FINALE. Very good for me and my tunes. But it hasn't been updated since a while, and doesn't work anymore with my new MacBook (macOS Sierra). So then I've downloaded MUSESCORE, and started to use it, ... But at the same I've got Easy...

Re: The Black Keys.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transposing_piano ¨"Transposing pianos were never common, and few still exist. Irving Berlin had two such instruments. In 1972 he donated one piano (built in 1940 by Weser Bros. Company in New York City, NY) to the Smithsonian Institution. It is now on display in the Na...

Re: favourite practice technique

FirstLearnToPractice.png This is a good book to start with. Interesting book with solid advice, most stuff we already know but tend to forget too easily. “Just messing around" actually is not practicing, so this book confirms that "just messing around" is exactly "just messing around".
