If you suddenly came into a large sum of money, would you buy a different piano, or invest it for your retirement? Are you currently satisfied? Buy cars, high tech stuff, maybe have a player device installed on your current piano?

If I came into a lot of money ... I'd be rich.

I'd still keep my N3 though would place it in a bigger house.

First, I'd pay off all by debt... which I almost have enough money to do now, but then I'd be broke. smile

Next, I'd build a bigger house/music room and fill it with acoustic pianos of various makes. grin

How much is a "large sum of money?"

Are we talking thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions? $50 is a large sum of money to my 9 year old son. Not so to most people here.

If we are talking thousands or hundreds of thousands, I imagine it would be invested for the future and for my son's education. I have no debt to worry about other than a small mortgage that is less than 1/3 the value of my home.

Were we speaking of millions . . . well, that would be something else entirely. In that case a small amount would be "blown" on frivolous purchases, some would be donated, and some would be invested. I might consider a slightly larger home with a dedicated library/music room as well. There to enjoy my two favorite inanimate objects, a piano and books . . . many, many books.

Now, to answer your question: we'd all stay home and practice the piano 8 hours/day!

Now that would be great. Assuming that "a lot of money" is like heaps and heaps of it, something like a "Personal Trainer" who came to the house daily and stayed with you while you practised for say 2 hours each day. Daily masterclasses.

After a quite unplanned visit to Allegro Piano last Saturday morning (NYC piano row), I'd have to say, without hesitation, that no piano on the floor, and there were/are MANY superb Bosendorfers, Bluthners and vintage Steinways, could compare to the Steingraebers. They truly are wonderful instruments.

With MY sudden windfall, I'd have to have a BIG, new Steingraeber.

I don't know what we'd do - pay off the mortgage, do some remodeling, some travel, and I'd definitely do something pianowise (have mine totally rebuilt or buy new).

I'd sure like the chance to find out. C'mon Publisher's Clearing House! wink

This. In order for it to be piano related, I'd have to "come into" a lot of money. I live in a trailer, so it'd have to be enough to purchase house and piano both.
Assuming that, I'd purchase a home that met our needs and left me plenty of room for a large music room. I play guitar, bass and piano.
I'd set up a music room with a brand new, very powerful computer designed for music recording, along with the appropriate digital interface/mixer and mics and other necessary studio equipment(including room treatment), guitar/bass amps(got all the guitars I'll ever need. I build them). The centerpiece would be a 6 ft grand. Probably a nice Yamaha or Kawai.

If I come into a large sum of money any time soon I'll finally be able get the piano tuned. Things have gotten a little lean lately.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

Well, maybe if I suddenly came into a lot of money I would not have to worry about retirement.

CNN says that in today's dollars I need $750K.

That does not even touch all the house maintenance/repair issues, the reliable transportation needs, etc. that have been delayed and will be ongoing.

So I guess I'll be playing my K3 for a long time!

Honestly I don't know how people with kids, mortgages, and car payments make do.

...I'd have a lot of people killed. If I had any left over, I'd buy a piano. Cheers!

-- No seriously, I wouldn't contemplate killing anybody. Well, maybe breaking a few legs... But then, definitely, a piano.

I'd build a recording/playing studio separate from my house with all the bells and whistles and upgrade my Estonia L190 to something much better.

But since my youngest son has designs on medical school it probably wont happen...

I'm very satisfied with my current piano. I can even afford to keep it tuned and maintained. I can and will retire sometime in the near future, but for now I still got a day job so I'm doing alright. As a professional musician I would starve.

Since I always find a beautiful piano to fall in love with, I'm sure I would use some of the "heaps of money" to add on a music room and buy another 2 or 3 pianos. I would have to put my piano teacher on retainer for years.

I'm incredibly lucky to have a loving family, great dog, comfortable house, great piano, and a job that keeps me too busy, but it pays the bills. Now, if I only had more time to practice.

One last post here from the original poster, I appreciate all the responses, and to be frivolous, I would purchase an Allen 4 manual theater organ just to enjoy and to annoy my neighbors. I could buy a better piano, but I feel that I don't deserve the one I own currently. I would love to learn to read proficiently, however I had seven weeks off this Summer, and all I did was swim and ride the motorcycle, and watch old TV shows. I need to keep moving or else I will dwindle to atrophy.

Seriously, I think he piano I have is all I could ever want, and I just moved into a house I love, I have a great wife, wonderful kids, and fantastic grandchildren, so if I had a ton of money, I would make sure all my grandkids could go to the college of their choice, I'd give each of my four daughters a lot of money so they wouldn't have to work so hard, and I would put the rest in trust for the grandkids.

it's highly unlikely I'll come into a lot of money, but I suppose a Bosendorfer 290 is not out of the question. Just not a new one.

and btw - my husband thinks we are 'dreadfully poor' - it drives me bats that he doesn't focus on our assets.

and yes, i'd hire a daily piano teacher.. it would be fun to have a different one for every day of the week.

.. also a full time housekeeper. All this laundry, cooking and cleaning is wearing me out.


accompanist/organist.. a non-MTNA teacher to a few

love and peace, Õun (apple in Estonian)

I think in order to show progress at each lesson, 5 to 8 hours of practice is minimum. A lesson everyday would require 40 hours of practice a week. Lots of people have done it, I know, including my own teacher, but I'm not sure I want to make that effort.

Instead of increasing lesson frequency, I would like to improve lesson quality and convenience. What I would do is probably buy two Bösendorfers with CEUS system that allows for remote playing through the Internet, so when I play on my piano, my teacher could hear and see it playing on hers live and vice versa. I would also need two 60" screens with HD Cisco Telepresence video conference systems. They actually have that in the fancy music schools where they are able to bring famous pianists from around the world virtually to their students.
