I thought it very difficult to learn the melody since it was not familiar to me, but then realized I was leaning it while trying to get the notes. I just got like the first 16 notes or so. It was getting complex when notes were faster and stopped.

Concur with the Rickster on this. YCs don't make my heart go pitter patter but it might be an OK piano. For a bit more, you can snag a Baldwin R (three or four around here right now) or go slightly higher and get an L.

It is reasonable to expect the grand to benefit and perhaps need significant voicing in your space. When addressing one note or a couple of notes, its easiest if you can sit with the technician as they voice it down. Maybe you can arrange to come w
