I have a good piano at home, but there was (and there will be again) a time where I had to play a piano that is terrible in mnay aspects.
It is a baby grand piano that is only really used for choir, and simple music is played on it that doesn't matter as much as the choir. Besides choir, it is used for an annual concert with many instruments, but the piano is used by me, playing a solo.
They say it gets tuned in the beginning of the year, but I guess it's so old that it gets out of tune in less than a year.
Here are some of the problems:
It sounds like it always has the damper pedal pushed down a little more than half way. What if I don't want that?
When you push the keys down, it's a bit hard at first, but when it goes down, it comes out as mezzo Forte or Forte because of the initial force of just trying to get the key to go down.
The piano is the opposite of a bright piano. It is hard to hear the different notes being played, and although my songs may sound impressive to non-pianists, I still want it to sound good. Since the piano isn't bright, it's hard to hear some of the dynamics and such.
When I play very complex tunes, you can't hear everything going on because of all the previous mentioned issues. Simply put, it sounds like a jumble of notes.
Besides other tiny issues, is there a way to get rid of or deal with the issues I showed?
