It's a bad habit. Discuss.

Yes a bad habit and my teacher keep picking on me for doing so. An enormous waste of energy and if you could control it to just hold down the keys with a minimum of effort, you would increase your stamina a lot for the remaining playing where it really is needed.

As a good example, the first octaves of Rach's C-sharp minor prelude. Do you release all power once the keys are hit or not?

Oh, that's good. I bet you're right about wasting effort and stamina here. I know I've spent way too much time playing with tension and this is just one more example where one can concentrate on relaxing your hands, arms, shoulders as you sit on long notes.

(techneut, isn't that uncomfortable? :wink: )

Oh, how can look someone that concentrated and sounds well but has such unbelievable stiff wrists and straight fingers? I almost get stiff fingers through looking at that! That's really a bad habit.

Keybedding seems not to be a major problem in my case, I suffer more from other problems (like learning so terrible slow).

I saw the video and all, and I still don't know what keybedding is.

Can someone please explain?

Thanks,

Claudio

Keybedding is when you press a key and then hold it down with power (which is of course useless)..
