What a fantastic experience, Blackjack! Witnessing live music played by the pros is always a treat. The lecture before the performance is a great idea--no one is forced to attend, but for those who do, it's definitely a bonus.

Peter, that's normal. From G6 upwards an acoustic piano does not have dampers and therefore the strings are free to vibrate. Digital pianos try to recreate the same experience.

Quick technical question, if anyone can explain. In bar 25, in the LH, why is the first note a B and not a G? It sounds discordant to me, compared with playing a G and doesnt match the pattern of the next three bars (i.e. Octave/3notes/3notes/Octave

Good choice for a digital! Garf is correct about the highest notes not being dampened. My Kawai MP6 is the same way. What will really drive you nuts is the fact Kawai also sampled the mechanical noises made when you press the the pedal down, along

How much would the technician be likely to charge? If it is $150 or more wouldn't it be worth taking a gamble on it as is?

It sounds like your son is doing very well moving to level 2A in 9 months! My son is in level 3 but he's 9 and has been taking lessons for a little over 2 years. Do you have the space for a grand piano? Our first real piano was an acoustic upright

Vintage D: 1. press the damper fully, play a key and release it, then release slightly the pedal, say 50%. The note sustain should become faster. This didn't work when I used Vintage D few years ago. 2. Press the damper fully, play a key, release th

On a piano, the highest notes have no damper, so they won't mute if you release the key. So yes, the instrument was likely fine, and the behavior is expected for something that correctly models an acoustic piano.
