It's not so much the cost of shipping that discourages me from looking closer at used east coast pianos. It's the cost of flying out to evaluate the piano, which might be wasted if I decide the piano's not in great condition.

Hi Yeva, It sounds to me like you have a teacher who prefers to play from a lead sheet, rather than two-staff sheet music that is entirely written out. A lead sheet is what you get when you combine a written-out melody line with chord symbols for t
