    It is going to be fun. I took lessons many years ago and just got back into just this week. I am even able to play songs alreadywith just a couple of refresher course lessons online. This will help me get better at knowing where the notes are

    It has always been a dream of mine to play the piano. After my 45th bday last week, I decided that now was the time to make this dream a reality. Dont know how many years I have left before the fingers cramp up! haha

    Hi Willie. In June 2012 I bought a lovely yacht piano from the 1930s, fully refurbished and tuned. It has five octaves instead of the usual eight. It’s been sitting very pretty in the corner, until now. Ive just completed my first lesson. I found 6 Cs and 4 F notes.
    Thank you!
