In my recent search, I was looking at both a Schimmel SP182 and a C2X. The 182 was larger, and I think objectively a nicer piano, but there was something about it (I don't know what) that made me pass on it. The C2X grabbed me immediately and is what

I don't think you'll find a midi. One of the main reasons people use the book is to learn to read sheet music. There's plenty of examples of youtube if you want to hear what any song is meant to sound like.

Here's my attempt to narrow down the list of pianos I tried: - new Shigeru Kawai SK-3 or 5 - used Bosendorfer 225 (if the treble issues are fixable) - Grotrian (not sure because not enough time on it, and is also the most expensive) - new Estonia 190

Can't speak about a Schimmel, as I've never seen one, much less played one. We do however own a Yamaha C2X, and for the money, the combination of tone, action feel, and fit and finish is unbeatable. I think these pianos are in a different class, so

I'm from Southern California, but my teacher is from the former Soviet Union. I don't mind that she uses the Solfege notation (Do Re Mi), I actually find it easier. My issue about that was she went back and forth between the two for the same chord.
