Re: where do I start:Grades, registration, location, progression

Hiya Saidi I agree with markymark - get yourself a teacher to help with scales, etc. The ABRSM publish their syllabus at http://www.abrsm.org/resources/pianoSyllabusComplete09.pdf so you can get a feel for what's required.

I've tried about 4 different acoustic pianos. They all felt different to each other, and they all f...

self repair

Hi Sureyfrog. If you're in the UK, then you're legally entitled to a replacement or a refund within the first three months of purchase. In the circumstances you describe, I'd insist that the keyboard isn't of satisfactory quality, get a refund and take your custom elsewhere. See Citizen's Advice for...
