The BB can be a great instrument, but as others have stated, the execution on the 1960's Masons were not the best. They are not stellar examples of the instrument. Have it checked out by a technician and expect to put some $$ into the piano. My 2

Bruce, thanks for your advice. I was also worried about too many minor key works. I think I will keep only the G-minor P&F which I've made good progress on and play some other things instead. I'm short-listing Liszt's Sonetto 123, Ravel's Pavane,

I pay the equivalent of about US$50 for a 60 minute lesson weekly. She's very flexible if I have to miss a slot (which is rare), and provided I give her a couple of days' notice, will fit me in at some other time that week.

When I bought my first electric piano (yes, that's what I called it then and still do now) it was a Roland RD300s. I could not try one, there were never any available for demonstration, they sold out too quickly. I ordered it in mid January 1990, 50

Piano Town is one of my favorites, and a go-to method book for me. I typically use the Lessons book, the technique book, and the performance book. Usually the Theory for Prep level and Maybe 1 only. Piano Town tends to move fairly fast, I agree.
