A lady has contacted Remap for help to make the action of her piano easier. Is this something anyone has experience of? She has already consulted a piano tuner who advised it cannot be adjusted. I quote from her email:
“I am a pianist and have been diagnosed with focal dystonia in my right hand. My piano has a very stiff key action, which is greatly exacerbating the problem because I can barely hit the keys with the fingers on my right hand. The hand surgeon who diagnosed the disability suggested a different piano with softer key action that I can actually play. I cannot afford to buy a new piano as I am not currently working, but wondered if there was any way Remap may be able to help find a solution. Music is my life and it is very distressing battling this condition with an instrument that it so difficult for me to play.”
Any advice you can give would be appreciated.
