It’s been a rough year on many levels so I decided I needed a present to congratulate myself for getting this far. After searching through quite a few pianos and seeing what they had to offer, I settled on the Yamaha DGX 650. It sounds and plays close to a real wooden Yamaha Grand (my mother has one that I love to play. But mine won’t need to be tuned.
I have quite a few recordings online of improvised piano music, but this instrument will allow me to record 6 tracks. 540 voices. I’m excited! My current piano, a Techics P30 is more than 15 years old and it’s starting to go. Technics went out of business and you can’t get parts for it. There is still life left in it, though, even though corrosion is starting on the motherboard, so I’m giving it to one of my students. A 17 year old boy I’ve taught for the last 1 1/2 years. He’s saving for a new keyboard and only has a crappy old 61 key Casio that was probably purchased at Kmart a long time ago. This one has 88 kkeys.He’s happy!
Soooo. . . Be on the lookout for new music!
