Dave knows piano craftsmanship and the history each piano manufacturer
I purchased and fell in love with my polished ebony Ritmuller 6'2" which replaced my Kawaii baby grand. Okay, I've been married 44 years, but I never thought I would feel this way about a piano. After more than 2 yrs of searching for a touch and sound that resonated with me, I found my soulmate in this piano. It breathes with me, and my playing has dramatically improved in response. My concentration is entirely immersed in the experience, as there is no distraction in feedback that was hard on my ears. Every piece that I play is easier to execute. Sight reading is more successful. I feel a connection with not only the touch but wanting to keep my hands on the keys without lifting unnecessarily is easier with this piano. While it was out of our price range, once I heard it, my husband and I knew we had found the one. Dave knows piano craftsmanship and the history each piano manufacturer. Note: Each piano has a response to touch and sound. Dynamic range, brightness, etc. He listened to what I was expressing about frustration with my piano that my husband had surprised me with many years ago. I wish I had made this decision many years earlier. I've studied classical since I was 7, participating in years of Florida Music Teachers Association Student Days. The difference this piano has brought into my life is astounding and my husband asks me to play pieces for him in the evening. Where piano was a matter of dedicated practice and hard work, it is now a feeling of being able to fully express the dynamics of the composer, my speed and accuracy has increased dramatically and the connection I feel arose out literally someone (Dave) who listened and knew that his role wsa ultimately matchmaker.
