Can someone explain to us why pretty female musicians both on the piano, like Yuja Wang, and Alexandra Whittignhamm on guitar, like many others appear in dresses as if they were in an - albeit - albeit upscale but still - semi-seedy nightclub?
That's about like Lang Lang performing in String Tangier.
We expressly apologize to Mr. Lang for the comparison, which was not seriously meant.

Meanwhile already a real FreeWare classic!
:
American researchers have found out the fastest way to learn to play the piano, by dividing the exercise into parts about 10 seconds long, then playing them and not playing them for 10 sec. not playing. In this 10 - 10 rhythm, play through all the individual parts of the piece. It is said that this way the learned material is consolidated faster and more intensively.
It seems to work, if only I wasn't so lazy....
