Re: P95 Delivery delayed

Well, it arrived today and it was HUGE. The box is seriously big and heavy. Because I paid on a card, they could only deliver to my billing address, 46 miles away from my University room. So I rushed back to Manchester and waited for delivery. If the box wasn't too heavy, I was going to take it on t...

Re: P95 Delivery delayed

Hi folks May I, firstly, say 'hello'. This is my first post here. I have recently started piano lessons again, 50yrs on from having got to Grade 3 as a child, so a lot of re-learning to do, having only a little (5 octave, very light touch) Casio keyboard at the moment! May I ask Paddy what he liked...

Re: P95 Delivery delayed

Seriously, this weekend has turned into a nightmare for digital pianos. Had arranged for P95 to be delivered Tuesday, turns out it is a display model, so not having that. After MUCH toing and foing, I'm 90% settled on a Yamaha YDP161, which has the better feel apparently. I'll update you all when/if...

Re: P95 Delivery delayed

Sorry, should have said! It's a Yamaha P95 digital piano.
I've managed to find a local Yamaha dealer who can deliver one on Tuesday, so I'm back to being happy again. :D

P95 Delivery delayed

I've just been sent an email from the shop I bought my P95 from, they have none in stock (although this was not what their website said) and they'll be getting a delivery of them in 'around the end of April'. I can't wait that long! But, it does seem standard practice as almost every site I go to ha...

I'm pretty good with hitting my own targets. The way I've structured my week is as follows: Half hour ...

Re: The best time to learn piano

Personally I think that when you've wanted to play for a few years, and you start to hear the piano in every song you listen to, you have more of an appreciation of it, especially as you get a little older.
I'm 20 and just restarting again, I feel that now I am better suited to tackle it.

Re: When did you start learning?

I started playing at 17, then my only keyboard died + college so stopped. I'm now 20 at University and have just ordered a P95 keyboard, got my piano teacher sorted. My target is to hit grade 2 by December this year, and be able to play Christmas songs for my family. So technically, I start playing ...

Beginner with P95

Hello Everyone, I'm a nearly a beginner with pianos. A few years ago I had around 6 months of lessons, until my keyboard died (£80 christmas present) and as a school student, couldn't afford a replacement. I've always loved the sound of the piano, it is by far my favourite instrument and I'm relativ...
