There are several options that you have to choose from in your price range: Morodiene's suggestion of using a software piano might definitely be worth considering if you want the best possible sound. Software pianos use your computer (and its speak

However, as entire Chopin pieces are concerned (which I realize is off-topic strictly), the Fourth Scherzo is decidedly weird (unless put alongside, say, Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique 1st movement) But it least it works in its own bizarre way, leavin

Angie's List can go to piano heck (every grand is out of tune and owned by a rich family that doesn't play). Don't pay to use a service where businesses can pay a monthly fee to have their reviews rank higher on the list. Just my personal opinion.

I don't call it a free lesson, because I don't teach anything. I do, however, assess where the student is at and talk about their goals. I give out my policy and info, discuss scheduling, things like that. I don't charge and I don't think I ever woul

Many in my generation, myself included, also started with JT. That it was one of the few methods available back in the dark ages hardly means that significantly better pedagogical materials haven't been developed in the 60+ years since. A huge leap

Maybe half or some other percentage the SMP. Of course, there are other factors so any percent would be an average cost. The list price is utterly irrelevant in terms of what the dealer pays and should be irrelevant in terms of what a buyer pays. T

I, too, would be concerned with getting mugged with something like that. Especially with a Nord - that would really suck to lose one of those! Might be better if you have a regular gig to see if you can just leave it there (in a locked closet) along

Climax of the Barcarolle, nothing near comparable harmonically speaking by any composer at that date IMO.

If Yamaha shipped it to Yamaha US to distribute, it can't be "grey market". For any product to be grey market it has to come through non-standard channels. I suspect the piano is B stock, a piano returned to yamaha with a problem, per

If you want something closest to the feel of a grand piano, forget about looking in the sub-$1k price range. Certainly if that is all you can afford, then you can find something decent there, but it will be miles away from the feel you can get for so

I'd never much thought of this passage this way before, because it's such a familiar piece and passage that it doesn't seem "weird" -- it's more like it-is-what-it-is, which is how it often is when something is familiar. But stepping back f
