How did you all go about earning the money to get your piano. How long did it take you to save to feel comfortable buying one? I think within the next year or two, I should be able to have enough to buy at least a decent one. But, I was curious if there was a method to the madness, and maybe how to make it come faster. I have about 3 jobs this fall, however, they are considered self-employed. Monica- your Larry Fine book looks interesting. I have read just a little bit of it. Thanks for suggesting it. Anyway, I thought this might spur on an interesting topic of conversation. Happy music making.
