Hello Olek, Yes, the action is somewhat longer and the black keys a bit shorter on these older reproducing Duo-Art pianos. That's probably why they are not selling for the same price as the same non-player models. For some reason, the average consum

Cobra1365, I started with Alfred's as well and struggled as you are. For me, it's really important to have a strong foundation in the basics before moving on which is why I jump between books and then try to tackle some beginner pieces. I like to

Not suggesting you don't know your own business, but what do you plan to use the MIDI to USB cable for? I would have thought you could just use the USB output on the VPC1 and plug that into your computer.

Hey Mo, E is the IV chord in the Key of B, B7 is the V chord in the key of E, just like F is the IV chord in the key of C, and C is the V chord in the key of F. The basic major chords in any key are the I, IV, and V chords ... listen to them in any

I'm not familiar with Goodall's Story of Music. However, in general, I might suggest finding an image or pdf of the Circle of Fifths and looking at it closely, perhaps printing it out. It might be helpful. Also search on popular chord progressions.

I need a MIDI to USB cable for use with my soon-to-be-delivered Kawai VPC-1 and my local music store doesn't carry them. So, I'll need to look online. I've looked at Amazon and see that prices vary from $5 or $6 up to $35. I recall, years ago,

The differences have evolved over time. So comparing a 1970's Hamburg to a 1920's NY is not the same as comparing a 1950's Hamburg with a 2000 NY. Hamburg moved the knuckle position in the 1960's so as to reduce the leverage in the action. NY follo
