    Thank you! Yes, I'm very blessed.

    I hope you'll be able to get a piano you like soon!

    Guess I got luck sooner than I thought. Hope you have a chance to see and hear the old/new piano. Of course some work will have to be done on it, but it's in very good shape for the age. Hope you are enjoying yours.

    So, Sarah, how is life with the new piano now that you've had it a while? :D

    Thanks for asking... the novelty of having something that's actually got a pianissimo hasn't quite worn off yet. :lol: Before the piano arrived I was excited about having an instrument that had guts that really worked, but I wasn't able to fully anticipate how wonderful a "musical" instrument would be. Something that actually had a tone, that could produce varied colors and shades... it's been fun exploring! My students have seemed to like that as well, even though they often can't put it into words.

    Hehe, I'm glad you are enjoying it. Actually, I'm not sure the novelty ever quite wears off. :lol:

    Re:

    I agree, and Jansen bench is a MUST! I got hooked when I started playing a Steinway B owned by a friend of mine, and he had a Jansen bench. I had the legs on mine custom made to match my piano, and a little bit shorter than standard because I don't like my knees to hit the bottom of the keybed. They are pricey, but worth it!!
