I sincerely believe a cheap, horribly conditioned acoustic piano is so much more devastating than a digital in terms of learning. Acoustics take so much servicing, and that is so expensive.... I recommend digital until $10k, then a Japanese grand, a

If that piano is really 'like new' and it passes a tech inspection, it would be an excellent choice. A Steinway in perfect condition, used or rebuilt, will start at USA $40,000. New, for the smallest S&S grand you are at +$50K! If you want to

VPC1 is always a viable option, even for those on a budget. A small correction still, the original poster has a Yamaha PF85, not P85. At first I thought it was a typing error, and I'm sure James knows about this instrument a lot more than I do, given

So, Larry. Are you any clearer now on temperament, from the point of view that pure or just intervals and playable keys in all 12 signatures is not possible, never minding different types of temperament for now?

Congratulations on your ascension. After five years it must feel wonderful and deserved to have made it this far. I am sure the road may not always have been easy but I guess that is what keeps us going.

Possible for various reasons, when inconvenient to use acoustic piano, choosing a digital piano is a good decision. This is my story: I have a SK3 Shigeru Kawai grand piano, it is keen to touch and exquisite sound has become my essential. But I have

Upon reflection, A443, what you wrote caused a flashback to an incident about 5 years ago which I associated with it, and has shed new light on it - so a somewhat serendipitous coincident.

Well, in measure 11 you missed some F notes which are on the first space of the treble clef. You also missed some C notes between the clefs in measure 11.
