    Hi sintink, and welcome,

    No problem with your English. But please do use capital letters to start sentences, and refrain from using SMS language like 'u' for 'you' and '2' for 'too'.

    What you are asking about is 'tone production' (not 'tonality', that is the harmonic language of the music itself). The word 'tuts' must be the Indonesian variant of the Dutch word 'toets', which in English is 'key'.

    Many people can endlessly discuss the various ways to press/hit/strike a key. But I strongly believe that very few people can actually, at equal volume, hear the difference. A teacher should probably not bother a pupil with this kind of ultra-subtle detail. Just tell her that you do not hear the difference, and then she should leave it alone. Sound is important, but it is the music that comes first.

    Regarding how you press the keys, I learned the Leschititsky technique from an Austrian professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria which transformed how I pressed the keys. He taught me to first relax the entire body and then put all my weight from the arm into the fingers. One can vary the dynamics through how much weight is brought into the arm and fingers. After studying for more than 15 years, I finally found a technique that made me feel totally secure while playing. :wink:
