Deanna's been taking piano lessons for a couple of years now. She started with a piano teacher in our neighbourhood, who then moved to Petawawa! A bit too far too commute, so piano lessons were put on hold for a while. This year, she started again with a student from our church who is studying for a music degree at Western University.
We picked up an electric keyboard off Kijiji when she first started lessons, which was okay for beginner stuff and learning notes... and the little girls loved the autoplay feature. They would put on some music and dance around the house.
However, it is not the same as playing a "real" piano, and it did not have 88 keys like a piano. As Deanna is progressing, she was really outgrowing it.
I'd been watching Kijiji for a while for a good deal on a decent piano. Last week I found it:
Art and some good (strong!) guys picked it up last night. Deanna is very happy:
It sounds lovely, and I'm sure it will be put to good use making beautiful music for a long time!
