It was noticed that increased compression in MP3s led to a change in the “emotional characteristics” of various instruments. The research showed that motions considered neutral and negative (mysterious, shy, scary and sad) tended to be heightened, whilst more positive emotions (including happy and romantic) appeared to be diminished.

Is your child learning just three piano exam pieces, and practicing the same scales and arpeggios day in and out every grading year so that he can take the piano exam?

Sounds too familiar? Most importantly, is there anything bad with this approach at all, and is there even any good? Should you, as a parent, be concerned?

Kathy’s replies shocked me! She requested that the payments be made monthly instead of quarterly, so that they would be easier to track. She would not honour 4 lessons out of the total of 24 conducted since the last payment, as she suspected I wasn't here for these lessons. The last reply really hit me straight in the face: "I didn't check the earlier months. I trusted you, you know. Now I check this month, and it's like this!"

Among female pianists, a common question that comes up in their minds is: Can I play the piano with long nails? For all their interest and skills in playing the piano, having long fingernails may present quite a fair bit of problems when playing the piano.

One of Australia's last remaining piano-maker has just created an instrument the likes of which the world has never seen.

Most grand pianos have 88 keys but Wayne Stuart's family-run business in Tumut, southern New South Wales, has built the first known piano with an impressive 108 keys.

This means it boasts a nine octave range, unheard of on the piano until now.

This stylish upright model utilises the same Millennium III keyboard action as that of Kawai’s highly-regarded ‘K’ series professional upright pianos, with high-precision optical sensors detecting the movement of each hybrid hammer. As with the first Novus instrument, the NV5 includes a real acoustic piano damper mechanism, preserving the important physical connection between the keyboard and pedals to ensure the most authentic playing experience possible.

Jet Chong - Philippines, Piano

“I started playing the piano when I was five years old. My older brother was actually the one who wanted to learn to play the piano, but my mom noticed my signs of interest and brought me along to piano lessons too. Later on, my brother moved to other hobbies while I stayed on, gradually appreciating and loving classical music.

Before YST, I studied in Chiang Kai Shek College in the Philippines, and then transferred to the Philippine High School for the Arts, a specialised public school, as I wanted to focus on piano. I transferred back to Chiang Kai Shek College for grades 11 and 12 as I had doubts whether or not I wanted to pursue music as a career. At the end of high school, my love for music only grew stronger and so I finally decided to pursue further studies here at YST.

Here, we get generous financial support, state-of-the-art facilities, amazing faculty, a multi-cultural and nurturing community, and countless opportunities - these are reasons why YST was my first choice for further studies. It is just too good to miss!

Coming up, I look forward to performing with my Piano peers on 11 October 2019 at the ACM (Asian Civilisations Museum)! It will be my first public performance as a YST student and I’ll get to see my peers in action. Getting to play in the beautiful museum and enter it for free is a bonus!”

"Minuet in G" is found in a notebook Bach gifted to his second wife, Anna Magdalena. Originally thought to be an original composition by Bach, it has, since 1970, been discovered to be the work of Christian Petzold.

However, the defence pointed out that his client, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, had been assessed to be suitable for probation. Jail would "destroy" the young man, who had been exempted from National Service, said the lawyer.

The earworm is a catchy piece of music that rings through a person’s mind long after he or she has heard it. This piece of music seems to be lodged in the person’s mind and replays itself. Studies has shown that women are affected more, and it also tends to last longer for women. How do you de-worm yourself?
