Teaching on digital pianos.
Today I was teaching a student about the technique called "Anschluss" in german.
That is "connection" between two notes or more. Actually about the problem to play
(or should I say "fake") a legato on a percussion instrument like piano.
On an acoustic instrument you show the student how to adapt the attack on the second tone
in a legato phrase. You simply connect the new attack to the level of the previous notes DECAY.
Then you can find a way to play some kind af legato. IMPOSSIBLE TO DO ON A DIGITAL INSTRUMENT SINCE THE PRODUCER DECIDED AN EQUAL DECAY FOR EVERY TONE YOU PLAY.
My student has been practicing on a digital piano. Its a disaster. And it would have been a bigger disaster if I was teaching on a digital piano. Then I couldn't show the student how to do it.
To all you followers: Thank you for your support. I've been a bit ill some time but now I'm back on stage again!!!
I will soon open up a new page here with piano compositions for anyone to use! i work a lot with
argentinskan Tango Nuevo (Piazzolla, Horatio Salgan and Sàul Cosentino are my idols)
