Zsuzsanna Foldi has been deaf all her life. Still, with her hands placed on the double bass, sitting among musicians in Budapest's Danubia orchestra, she can enjoy and literally feel Beethoven's famous Fifth Symphony.

"When I sat next to the musician who played the bass today, I started crying," she said.

Zsuzsanna Foldi has been deaf all her life. Still, with her hands placed on the double bass, sitting among musicians in Budapest's Danubia orchestra, she can enjoy and literally feel Beethoven's famous Fifth Symphony.

"When I sat next to the musician who played the bass today, I started crying," she said.

Mate Hamori, the conductor of the orchestra that is holding a series of concerts this spring for people with a hearing loss, said their aim was to bring music to people who otherwise have no chance to enjoy it, and to call attention to hearing difficulties that are often ignored.

"So the idea was to somehow lure those who are the most capable of sympathising with Beethoven and his own suffering into the world of music," Hamori said.

For the Canadian pianist Stewart Goodyear, Beethoven has been a lifelong project. Aged three, he listened to an entire 12-LP set of Beethoven’s piano sonatas in a day. At five he set to work on the symphonies.

Would this deep obsession give his Complete Beethoven Piano Concertos, with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Andrew Constantine, edge or distinction in a crowded market? Yes. The results are fleet-fingered, insightful and imaginative, capturing an essential sense of... See More

For the Canadian pianist Stewart Goodyear, Beethoven has been a lifelong project. Aged three, he listened to an entire 12-LP set of Beethoven’s piano sonatas in a day. At five he set to work on the symphonies.

Would this deep obsession give his Complete Beethoven Piano Concertos, with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Andrew Constantine, edge or distinction in a crowded market? Yes. The results are fleet-fingered, insightful and imaginative, capturing an essential sense of improvisation in the cadenzas (Goodyear is also a composer).

Miles sang and played the piano at home in the northeast of England, while the others performed their own sections elsewhere in Europe, following a click track of sound cues to keep time. The tracks were combined in a studio.

When 7-year-old Sophia Cheung hears a truck park outside her home in Hong Kong, she grabs her sheet music and runs out the door.

In the truck, instructor Evan Kam, holding a sanitizer bottle and wearing a face mask, greets her by a piano.

With schools shut since late January because of the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed four of Hong Kong's 890 cases, students have been asked to take classes online.

But that won't work very well for piano lessons.

But that won't work very well for piano lessons.

Ming’s Piano, a music school with 12 teachers and about 200 students, has hired three trucks to deliver lessons at students' doorsteps and save its business.

In this piano tutorial I'm going to go over 5 exercises I indulge in from time to time to keep me in shape. They're great for building finger independence and strength, simple enough to be picked up by a beginner but complicated enough to challenge veterans if played sufficiently fast.

Remember to always practice slowly and with a metronome at first until you feel confident in your playing and can play each note evenly. Then slowly pick up the speed. If you're starting out, think... See More

In this piano tutorial I'm going to go over 5 exercises I indulge in from time to time to keep me in shape. They're great for building finger independence and strength, simple enough to be picked up by a beginner but complicated enough to challenge veterans if played sufficiently fast.

Remember to always practice slowly and with a metronome at first until you feel confident in your playing and can play each note evenly. Then slowly pick up the speed. If you're starting out, think long-term: it takes many months to build up technique on these, so don't rush! Remember, if you can't play it slowly, you sure can't play it fast.

While at a Paris train station to make her way to her next concert venue in the Netherlands, she met some fans and decided to give them a very special treat.

She dropped her bags and sang them a song, which she recorded and posted on Instagram on Wednesday (Mar 4). And as luck would have it, there was a piano at the station, which she played as well.

These are geared towards beginners, but they can be used by any level as a great way to 'wake up' the fingers and develop muscle memory.
