I agree with wimpiano on both counts - post this in the correct section for more answers. You are looking at used, entry-level, very small grand pianos. Speaking as a teacher, I would not perceive of much of a benefit in the actions of these over a

Agree with learning more rep. It's on my list to buy the standard Schirmer Aria books. I've learned many of those arias on the wolf trap lists, but many of those I learned a couple years ago. If I were to read one of those again now, the first/sec

Pianos like these are like the classic car that you find in a barn. You spend a fortune restoring them, and then they still do not work as well as a new car, or piano. If you want one to compare with a new piano, there is never a guarantee that they

They absolutely can co-exist. I've played in pit orchestras and often the keyboard part will switch from a specific, traditional notation part to a section with chord changes. I do think you're using a different part of your brain, because I often fe

I agree with both posts above. If the Yamaha owner won't budge on the price, demand that the piano be tuned prior to sale so you can properly evaluate the tone of it. Because, you can't evaluate the tone of a piano that was delivered new and never

It's definitely an interesting approach. Are you good at relative pitch? If so, you only really need to know one of those notes. Personally I don't like learning notes or intervals attached to a song because it implies tonality. If you wanted to deve

Bennevis, I agree with you about the desirability of learning from first principles; that's one reason I'm chary of these chord-based wonder methods. My teacher is not teaching me any theory. We just go from piece to piece. Sometimes she'll mentio
