Verify the age. Ask the seller to show you the invoice or sales receipt. Look for the serial number on the piano and you might find the manufacture date.

I have the PX5S and use it with headphones and small Presonus studio speakers - I love it. I started with a Yamaha P105 and liked it but I really wanted to use a DAW. The PX5S is an amazing tool IMHO. Yes it is a bit more complex than other instrumen

Man you sound exactly like I did when I first started playing! It really is subjective like you said. I'm self taught (hence the name) and I never read sheet music. I would recommend learning some basics about technique for a while first. Afterwards,

I would check all the keys and make sure that none of them stick and that there are no weird dynamic variations (like one key much louder or softer than the others). Check all the panel buttons to make sure they function appropriately. And if ther

In the most basic sense, playing by ear would be going to the piano and trying to figure out "Happy Birthday" or something simple with no help. On a more advanced level, it would be for example, getting a request to play a song you've never

If the rest of your program is quite virtuosic, then I don't think your encore has to be virtuosic. Especially if your final piece on the regular program is highly virtuosic. There are thousands of possibilities. Are there any composers you particula
