Hello All:

Having bought the above noted CVP two years ago when I began piano lessons (I'm an adult student), I'm now starting to feel a significant difference between the Steinway grand I play in my weekly lessons and the Clavinova. I have briefly tried the N1 at a dealer and it feels quite different from the clavinova. My question is whether moving to the N1 is going to give me more control and allow me to become a better player as I continue to advance in my lessons or whether it would be an insignificant difference and thus not worth the money involved.

It will. But is an acoustic piano out of the question?

Lucky you to have weekly lessons on a Steinway grand.

The touch is where the subtlety comes from. So depending on what kind of music you are playing, if you are doing classical or jazz, the touch gives you a new world of learning and appreciation.

Thanks EssBrace and SIG77; all I play is classical and jazz, so your messages are encouraging in regard to the N1. An acoustic is not out of the question, but I have room only for an upright piano.
