Hi
What method you choose depends on your own personal goals:

Want to play a limited number of pieces and be reliant on blinking lights, play on a piano that has you follow the lights. It is quick to copy but you are limiting what you will learn

Want to be able to play a large number of pieces, even music you haven’t seen previously, on any piano? Take the longer route of learning what the notes on the printed score actually mean. It does take time, but there is a lot of personal satisfaction to see what you can learn to play., as d watching your skills progress.

Most here will not vote for the quick and easy immediate gratification. They will vote for learning

I’m guessing we’re replying to a spam bot here. See their other two posts…

You'd think it could be programmed to spell 'whether' correctly.

Well, I guess you can't blame them for trying. That is what spammers and scammers do. And, if the product is piano related, this is likely a good "target market" source. At least until the Moderators find out... smile

Oh, and on a related subject, now that I'm retired, and at home most of the time, I can't believe the number of telemarketing calls I get on my home phone; several a day, and sometimes more. Yea, I'm an old guy, old fashioned, and have old ways; I do still have a land line phone, along with my cell phone.

Over the years I've called the local Sheriff's department a few times, the Governor's office of consumer affairs, and the Federal Trade Commission to complain about the telemarketing/scammer calls. I did get to talk to an investigator with the Federal Trade Commission once. He was very professional, took my info, and said they'd investigate and gave me a case number. He also said that the telemarketers and scammers were very smart, and by the time they (FTC) figured out where they were located, and went there to bust them, they (telemarketers) had already packed up and gone. He said it was even more difficult if they were located in another country, which many are.

So, the spammers, scammers and telemarketers aren't going anywhere anytime soon...

When it comes to telemarketers:

They are like a praying mantis
looking for prey, day after day
We have to be smarter, harder,
and don't buy into their charter

You can usually recognize who they are
by what they say
A total stranger, who calls out of the blue
and has the audacity to ask how do you do

Plus, when and if you answer the phone
there is a slight hesitation before they come on
And, you can hear other voices in the background
which is surely a clue other telemarketers are around

I hate to say it, but I'll have to say
spammers, scammers and telemarketers are here to stay
They come across as nice and cheerfully
Just be on your guard, beware and be carful

Sorry, I couldn't resist... I'm on my second cup of coffee this morning and feeling a little feisty. smile
