I use Noteworthy Composer, which is free (though I paid for the full version as I use it so much). I'm pretty sure you can set staff to invisible. I'll try tonight and let you know.

The last one - the Casio - is OK. The PX range is even better value - try the PX 350. As for the others, they look a bit too good to be true at that price. I expect the appearance is a great deal more enticing than the feel, sound and fine details o

I plan to do the repeats, but not make any difference between first and second time like some pianists do. I have heard some excellent performances where the pianist added lots of embelishments second time, but I don't feel qualified to do this mysel

I bought my 1976 Yamaha U3H for 4400 dollars. It was in mint condition and keeps its tuning for a long time. It is an excellent piano with a mellow sound (although I wish it had that little umph in the bass). If this 1973 U3H you are looking at is in

I flew halfway across the country to pick my piano out. It's certainly not unheard of, especially when you're forking over that kind of dough. To me, it was another external cost to be considered with the piano, like regulation, transport, etc.

I hope that girl who is playing passes it down to her great-grand daughter and so on. And the musical talent may skip a generation or two. The mahogany Model O my Great Grandpa bought for my aunts and grandpa in 1937 is now sitting in my cousin's hou

This is interesting because I never thought about it until recently with the recitals. In my mind, my non-playing hand simply vanishes from thought. When needed again it re-appears. It wasn't until I recorded myself for the recital that I watched
