I have just watched piano lesson #24: Battle of the Boards. I have a Yamaha PSR-290 (a synth) and am using it to learn how to play the piano. I understand technique (scales, sight reading, etc. etc.) can transfer easily regardless of what type of piano one is using, but what about muscle memory and the like? While my keyboard has touch sensitivity, it does not have weighted keys. I guess my concern is this: Will I cripple myself by strictly playing on a keyboard. While I'm at college I have access to a piano (though it's out of tune, it's free), but while at home I only have my keyboard. Any thoughts?

Well, you need to build stringht in your fingers to play piano at a higher level. And the keys ar a little bigger, but thats somthing youll get use to within an hour. I used a couple of days adjusting, and the tuch, ppp vs fff is still tricky at times! Well maby nt ppp vs fff, But f vs p or ppp vs pp is tricky still!!! Smile

After I saw that lesson, I bought a Piano WinkWink hehe

Yeah, I wish I could afford a real piano too. Unfortunately I fall under the "college student with no money" department. :p

well i have keyboard too, i practice on it,it sounds good, but i m still fascinated by the piano sound... In time, when my playing will improove i ll have a dillema in buying either a digital piano , or a ...piano-lol-. Think i ll go for the first cause i don t know much in tuning and according the piano...digital is easyer to mantain. But all in due time.
Good luck with practicing. bom
