+1 on: Find a teacher, get a proper keyboard... and honestly I'd get a proper upright piano before any digital piano ( I do own a digital piano and a "traditional" one ).

I agree with Jean. The standard range for an 85 note piano is A0 to A7. One of Cristofori's pianos, the latest surviving, had a 4 octave compass from C2 to C6 in modern numbering.

Actually 85 was quite common by the mid-19th century. The range was C1 through C8. The change to 88 added A0, Bb0, and B0. Circa 1870's - 1880's IIRC. Keyboards are mostly a little over four feet wide, like 48 3/8" to 48 1/2". It seems
