Default Re: Piano Tips

Please, learn to count properly. Pianists are notorious for not counting correctly. This is mainly a result of the ability to be lax in counting and still play solo with errors mostly unnoticed or at least listenable. Many pianists fall on the unfortunate crutch of simply looking at how the notes line up between the two hands without calculating the exact duration of the notes. This becomes a real problem when playing in a group, accompanying a soloist, playing a concerto with an orchestra, or even playing a solo piece incorrectly that listeners are familiar with. Rise above the crowd!
