I use single vision glasses. Bifocals are fine for everything else but aren't made for music. And if I can't see the conductor, well, he probably doesn't watch me either. But before you try anything else, get a lamp and a 150 watt bulb (incandesc

Is this a normal ebonized Steinway with the ceramics added for the music desk, little plaques on the side, and bench(with additional changes on the bench)? If so, that's about 200K extra for those relatively few little changes!

1) Play it with the thumb. To make it less awkward, slide the other fingers up toward the top of the key (in between the black keys) so you're not twisting your wrist at an odd angle. 2) I wouldn't do that if it's not absolutely necessary. I think

I'm more than happy with any of the options. I think option #3 would be risky though for any volunteer without being able to call on you for advice, so agree with your assessment that it's not ideal.
