Tonight I had my first piano class.

My instructor is starting all of us with the same book, and then modifying it from there depending upon our ability level (we are being taught individually, which is nice). We got half-way through the beginner book today, and he asked me to buy the intermediate book this week because we will undoubtedly get to it next session. I used to have a keyboard when I was young, and would screw around on it figuring out how to play things by ear (I could read music, but didn't have any for piano, and transposing it from clarinet--which is B flat-- is kind of a pain in the ass). Right at the end of class, before we shut off the electronic pianos, I started playing bits of Fur Elise that I could remember. My professor stopped, looked at me, and then raised an eyebrow (we hadn't gotten into anything nearly that complex during our lesson. It was all very basic). He said, "That will be your final exam."

I was like, "Seriously? I'm just a beginner!"

He nodded, "You'll get there."

Does anyone happen to have an electric piano they're looking to part with on the cheap?
