Sounds lovely to me. You don't need to watch the display spewing out data. Of course it'll all seem a little strange at the outset but judging by your sound I've no doubt you'll quickly get used to it. We'll all benefit by your feedback and though

I joined the ABF Recitals for two simple reasons. 1. I have an extreme anxiety in playing for anyone including my teacher or even my own children. I once told my teacher that "if there is a way for me to have lessons without playing for you,

Other than that, I have no idea what to do or how to fix big things or how to tweak the system to get a better sound. I tried to play around with the controls in Ivory, but I'm not sure what most of it really means so I largely left it all alone.

This could be from pressing down too hard when your hold down the keys you've played. There's a test for that, usually done by a teacher, but anyone else can do it for you. You need somebody who will unexpectedly reach under your wrist and try to
