looks like we have enough to start a thread !

many of us hear that we're destined to switch to acoustic at some point in future, when teachers require it, when our children require it, when they wish to get certification but it can only be done on acoustic (i believe ABRSM allows DP usage even at Grade 8 though in practice students don't really do it .. but diploma won't allow for DPs).

but until we reach that stage of evolution, we can proudly lurk in this thread just for us parents who for some reason can't/don't have an acoustic but still wish to give our children a good learning journey !

What's the highest ABRSM or other grade exam that u have heard that allows digital pianos to be used? In Singapore I heard of one music school that conducts exams on DPs, but their students may be low- to mid- level, not sure if they'll have a grade 8 exam on DP one day. But I believe theoretically ABRSM allows DP usage until grade 8, yes? That appears to be implied from the text of their exam syllabus online. And now with performance only recorded exams, DPs definitely can be used to grade 8 as well.
