Questions and Answers.

Mrs. H. D. F. asks if it is advisable to have a pedal-piano for organ-practice when one cannot practice at the church on account of the cold weather. A pedal-piano (if a good one) is a useful adjunct to any organist. Of course, some compositions are impossible on one keyboard, and the absence of sustained tones causes bad habits in playing; nevertheless, one can, with a reasonable amount of application, accomplish a great deal at a pedal-piano.

One can have pedals attached to almost any upright piano, though it is far better to exchange the piano for a genuine pedal-piano. The Miller Pedal-Piano has been in use for years, wears well, and, as the pedals shut up underneath the keyboard when not in use, is very convenient.
