All the well-known classical violinists have their own personal, identifiable tone. There are people that sound similar because of how they were trained, but everyone has different techniques, fingers, hands, arms, and brains - even if they played on the exact same instrument and with the same...
Playing the piano involves using the fingers - even children soon realise that fists (or, occasionally, the feet) are not the most efficient way of depressing piano keys to make music. Fingers sit on the two hands in a particular order, and each finger behaves differently, for example, the thumb...

Time passes. The onset of the personal computer and mobile technology enables us to exchange information faster than ever before. Many, therefore, would assume that quills, dip...
