2.05/2500 hours completed

I have a piano but it is really bad. Most of the keys don’t work and the instrument is not worth the repairs.

Before I trade this one in and buy a new one, I need to practice piano for a total of 2500 hours.

jeff coveyoutdated goal

I bought a piano over a year ago, but never closed this goal. I ended up buying a Casio PX-130 on the recommendation of a friend. I enjoyed it for a brief time before assorted crises hit and my piano lessons were over before they’d really begun. The piano stills sits in my living room, though, and waits for me to find a teacher again. 22 months ago

SingingDetectiveOK...

...I quit. I don’t have room in my home for a piano. I’m facing up to this! Maybe some day I’ll get it, but I’m taking this off my list of immediate goals. 2 years ago

jeff coveyTime to get something more serious

My new piano teacher wants me to get something to play at home that’s more piano-like than the electronic keyboard I have, which has an organ-like action and practically no dynamic contrast. I usually practice in the morning or at night, while Glenn’s asleep, so I’m thinking of two options:

  1. An acoustic upright piano at the opposite end of the house with a practice pedal to dampen the sound.
  2. An electronic piano which plays as much like the genuine article as possible.

Both have their up- and downsides. A real piano with the damper pedal on may still make too much racket, and it defeats the purpose somewhat to be trying to develop touch and dynamics while intentionally muting the instrument. An electric piano will never completely match the real playing experience, but can be played through headphones when Glenn’s in bed (or watching TV).

I’m checking Craigslist (wow, are there a lot of pianos there) and getting some ideas of what I want to do. My teacher mentioned a Korg electric which is quite good, I’ve asked her for the model number so I can check it out.

Advice and suggestions welcome! 2 years ago
