Well, my mom seems to refuse to get the piano tuned, the hammers have a damp touch, the notes have horrible action, there are two *very important* notes that have hammers which have been somehow taken off track and thus hit either another note or the soundboard of the piano... and the piano just sounds and feels like crap... and is getting worse with time.
When I think about practicing, I am almost always discouraged now, and I must admit that I practice dramatically less than I used to, back when I could practice on a decent Clavinova quite often. Tonight as I tried to practice, I felt so angry with the music that was being made, it sounded awful and I decided to just stop completely... I hate it!
Therefore, I guess I am going to save up my money (for about 10 months to a year) to buy an okay digital piano so that I can forget about out of tune music and breaking hammers, etc. Plus, the piano we have now isn't even ours, someone let us borrow it out of pity. Our financial situation is also quite bad, so buying a newer (decent) piano is out of the question, as that would result in having no food for a while...
So I guess my ranting does have a point when I ask y'all for some advice and experiences. Have any of you practiced on these digital pianos? If so what is your opinion on them? I've used them before and the only drawback I can quickly see is that it is not a real piano and so you obviously get a different and less great experience, but I don't think anything could be as bad as what I'm using now.
Well, please share some advice or suggestions, because I'm feeling miserable right now, and the way it is going now, I may just quit piano or something, because my love for music is being replaced by a hatred for my piano!
