Rafael, we obviously misunderstand each other. I have been teaching for 10 years and I've taught over 200 students. I have already run through your hypothesis of teaching tuning that you write about and applied it in practice, and found its defects.

It's pretty much impossible to know if the piano is stolen unless the police keep an inventory of stolen piano serial numbers for you to cross check, which isn't likely. Paul, sometimes you can buy the piano on Hire Purchase, or sometimes the store
