A couple of suggestions without using drugs: - Look at Head Space, a web-based relaxation program. There is a free version that is fine. _ Build up small successes in easier environments. I volunteered to play the church piano preludes, with mus

Thanks for your response MC. The problem with the Yamaha one is that I don't have any background information about the piano. Even the dealer doesn't know much about them... I don't have this issue with the Kawai one. I also read that Yamaha piano'

For substantial bound scores I use an ordinary bookshelf. But for all the flimsy stuff I really like a 2-drawer cabinet with hanging files, which I got a couple of years ago. It's attractive wood and wasn't very expensive--got it from Home Decorators

Serial no 0112358 would have been more appropriate for a Fibonacci themed piano! The incorporation of the legs and pedals in a single large spiral is cleverly done. We don't see any linkages to the pedals so I imagine that these must go up inside th

I'm not a teacher and I also would be puzzled if the teacher would recommend less practice. I love working at the piano and restricting it to 10 minutes per day would not enjoy me. I did 2 hours per day ever since I started playing piano.

For me, Yamaha uprights are some of the best upright pianos I've tried. Kawai aren't bad, but I just love the sound and feel of Yamaha. Never tried Liedermann pianos so can't comment on them Perhaps someone else here can help you in terms of resale
