Question of the Month


I'm seriously considering starting piano lessons. I'm 63 years old and pretty much sold, so far, on the Kawai CE 220.

I'll be primarily self taught. (I hate to drive after having driven all over the U.S.A. several times. Now I find I'm just happy to stay at home unless I have to go out for groceries etc.)

So do you think the Kawai is a decent choice... due to weight and size restrictions..the piano; not me; all though my equatorial dimensions are increasing at a less than desirable rate.

Any opinions you might share concerning my choice of pianos and music lesson books would be be greatly appreciated.
