Thank you, David, for taking the time to reply. However, I am buying a piano to have right now, while I can enjoy it, and have the budget for it. Later, we are considering full time RV'ing (at least for awhile) and I will not be able to have a piano.

After about 6-7 years of piano lessons as a kid (the usual classical), I switched to electric organ (with pedals) for quite a while, and the lessons were all about chords! It was a musical revelation to learn all these beautiful and interesting chord

I'd do what I did in a similar situation: Get another teacher. Really, if your teacher is just shrugging things off that your considering without a valid musical reason and is moving you towards a genre your not interested in, I'd definitely say it
