comment Teaching young kids (7-9) basic piano and music fundemetals.
Do you have any pedagogy training at all? Formal music training? You say that the nine-year-old is your first-ever student. Not passing judgment one way or the other, but it may help make any answer more useful to know the background from which you ask the question.

comment How should I inspect a used piano prior to purchase?
@CarlWitthoft Let's say I have no such friends. After all, I'm a classical saxophonist who has to pay pianists to hang out with him. Also, I can play piano somewhat. I would hope to be able to do a bit more investigation myself before calling in the pros.

comment How to start making musique concrète?
In short, I'm not about to ask a moderator to reopen this question; rather, @oberdada, do you think we can find two more non-moderators to vote to reopen? Maybe, maybe not, but I'd like to try.

comment How to start making musique concrète?
@DrMayhem, the question may superficially appear to invite discussion, but it is almost certainly answerable with one or more real answers. If you doubt this assertion, see the answers to the question I linked above. I think oberdada understood this point. I don't think the definition of musique concrète is more debatable than the definition of any other genre, and that wasn't what the poster asked anyway (I supplied the term, then the poster edited the question to use it).

This is kind of an answer and a question. If you have an actual question, ask one as a new question.
