The thing is, i do feel that i need it. The PX150 IMO is good enough for a hobby but not good enough to express the piano pieces. But i do like the functions of a digital piano ( ie. able to adjust volume, silent, able to practice anytime, no need fo

Thanks for the tips! I read music well, so trying to do something without sheet music is difficult. I'll try some of the suggestions here. My reacher is working with me on this, too. She was a little reluctant since she much prefers teaching class

I returned to the piano after many years because it was a way to be creative without making "stuff" that has to be stored somewhere. I always enjoyed crafts, amd I am good at that stuff, but tired of all the paraphernalia around the house.

Learning to ignore fingerings is not a useful skill. Modifying a fingering with pencil to match your needs is. If you learn to ignore fingerings you're likely to ignore the useful ones (or even your own written fingerings) as well.
