When looking to buy a piano there are many factors that ‘weigh in’ to the decision. Understanding a piano’s ‘action’ contributes to the development of good piano playing technique.
What is a piano ‘action’?
The piano ‘action’ is the mechanism that’s made up of over 30 parts that transfer the movement from the piano keys to the hammers. Its job is to translate the energy from the player’s hands to the strings.
What is a piano playing technique?
Technique is the ability of a player to translate their creativity through their hands to the piano keys. It takes years of practice to develop strength and muscle memory in our hands to deliver an expressive and virtuosic performance.
You can assess your piano technique in a variety of ways:
Put simply, the more responsive the action the better the piano will respond to a player’s commands. The more tone, speed and articulation a player can get out of their piano, the more they can gauge, adjust and therefore develop their technique. A smooth, responsive, evenly-weighted and balanced action will cater better to the development of good piano playing technique.
How do we know if a piano has a good ‘action’?
Over time and with use a piano action begins to tire leaving the keys feeling jolty or wobbly and less responsive. A service called a regulation may be required to bring the action back to as-new performance. Obviously the action on a new quality piano is at its peak. Quality brands like Yamaha have strict quality control procedures that ensure the action on their new pianos perform at the highest possible standard.
When looking at purchasing a used piano it’s helpful to ask either a piano technician or an experienced piano player to check the piano’s action. If neither are available it’s worth spending some time in a shop pressing the keys of a new piano and then a second-hand piano to compare. Our Piano staff at Music Junction Blackburn are all experienced piano players and teachers and are more than happy to assist in this process.
在购买钢琴时，许多因素会影响您的决定。理解钢琴的“击弦器”有助于发挥良好的钢琴演奏技巧。 什么是钢琴“击弦器”？ 钢琴“击弦器”是钢琴的心脏，就像汽车引擎一样重要。它由30多个部件、8000多个零件组成，它的工作是将演奏者指尖的能量转化为美妙的弦乐。
1.触感：注意你的手在演奏时的感受 – 应该没有痛苦或紧张;
随着时间的推移和使用，钢琴击弦器开始变得疲惫不堪，使得琴键感到晃动或摇晃，反应迟钝。可能需要一项称为“监管”的服务，以使该击弦器恢复新的生命力。显然，新品质钢琴的击弦器正处于巅峰状态。雅马哈等优质品牌拥有严格的质量控制程序，确保新钢琴的击弦器能够达到最高标准。 在购买二手钢琴时，要求钢琴技师或经验丰富的钢琴演奏者检查钢琴的击弦器是有帮助的。如果两者都不可用，那么值得花一些时间在琴行弹奏新琴，然后与二手钢琴进行比较。Music Junction Blackburn的钢琴工作人员都是经验丰富的钢琴演奏家和老师，非常乐意为您提供协助。
