John, the CE220 already had a 'USB to Host' connector on the back of the instrument, so all you need is a $1 USB 'A' to 'B' cable to connect it to your computer. The Mac's built-in drivers will be installed automatically. Regarding the best softwar

I enjoyed watching that. The little boy is an expressive player and I was moved by his playing. And what a great teacher. I hate to ask, but what kind of pianos are those? I really like the sound of them, and I'm looking for a piano to buy.

Hi, Rich. Steve's been a close personal friend of ours for years and a terrific piano (and tuba) player. But the bad news is we just heard his day job may keep him home this time. Fingers crossed. In any event, here's a video I shot of him a while

Warm ups help the body but they help the head more, IMHO. Just a few moments of "getting in tune" with your body, no matter what activity you are performing, can really help. Of course there are physical reasons to warm up as well. Cold h

At that price, you should expect to be on your own for anything service related. Being the second owner of a discontinued, young brand means that you're getting a low price in exchange for a higher risk tolerance. Keep that in mind. I'm not a fan
