Yeah! True that! A lifetime is only as long as you live, after all. I'm hearing marriage vows these days that instead of finishing 'for as long as we both shall live' or 'til death us do part', are 'For as long as we are married' LOL!

The DGX650 is not light. Or small . . .but it has a built in stand which can easily be detached. If I was gigging, I'd go for something lighter. . . I used to gig with a Hammond. That wasn't light either! And i always got the heavy end. . .

I'm fairly sure that theoretically the D# to G# isn't meant to be arpeggiated, but many people (including me) do since it's such a large interval. I don't think the D# to F# is much different in that respect. You can definitely play this piece with

I sure wouldn't worry about it. There is a lot of discussion about recording anxiety (red dot syndrome) every three months when the online piano recital comes around. We pretty much all have it. One thing I have realized... it's not so much I mess up

You need to differentiate between the recording and the score. Create the score and THEN create a recording that's to your liking. You can't have both.

The sound and feel of a modern piano is pretty well established. Both upright and acoustic. Any modifications to the piano that cause the price to go up and only make a technician's job slightly easier without eliminating the need for a technician.

It's dominant because it always feels like it leads to a tonic. Anyway simply put it's chord V7. Perhaps you were playing the G7 chord built on a B in a particular piece and it was just that you were playing it in the first inversion. Certainly if

Imagine that you are required to continuously read written text - exactly pronouncing letter by letter as you were taught in first grade (similar to how I'm typing now in nonnative language) . I am sure that you would prefer to hear and recite the
