A keyboard to practice on


   Jay L. brought us over a 61 key eMedia keyboard for us to practice on.  We at first set it up to play outside on the porch when it is nice out.  With much effort, we made a place for it to live inside our small place.(Picture)

   I have been practicing on the keyboard Jay brought over, playing both the right treble hand of "Christian Dedication" and going through a Beginner Video Lessons course I found on YouTube.  So far I have not purchased any of the .PDF materials, I will see how I progress before I invest much into the piano hobby.  I have the guitar lessons to keep up with too.  Here are my goals and successes so far, I will update occasionally.

I am still practicing and even got some Piano time

I am still practicing on "The three little birds". We are visiting our Mother in law so am getting opportunity to play with her piano. I have played with a Keyboard and an Organ before but never a real piano.  So I took the opportunity the practice "Christian Dedication". I practiced a couple dozen times​ and recorded  a run.  I practiced a second session the second day here and plan to practice again this evening.
