I have a yamaha upright piano E121T and its keys are rather light.
My teacher stated that i will not be able to built my muscles practising on this piano.
Is there a way i could make my keys heavier without having to buy a new piano?
The piano might not be ideal, but the idea of practice is NOT to BUILD muscles, but to create neurological pathways and condition the hand into performing certain actions.
Above that, it is about developing awareness so that you can have a mental concept of a work before you play it.
Muscles should be built in the gym if you feel so inclined. Don't mean to sound unkind, but it is the truth. (Hey, my teacher was taught by a pupil of Schnabel, Schnabel by Leschetizky, Leschetizky by Czerny and Czerny by Beethoven so I have a little bit of an idea, not that I could claim to play like any of them )
The simplistic none invasive way is go to you local fishing shop see what little weights they have use some bluetak to stick them on the back of the keys as close to the action as you can
Has your teacher got a grand ?
