The other day my daughter had to purchase books for college. My dad bought them for her (thanks dad), and the price for 4 books was a whopping $450. Thank God we got most of them used so it ended up being around $200. Anyway I told my dad your lucky she didn't take piano. She would of went to the book store and they would of said "Oh you need a piano for your homework....$8000." Moral of the story: Learn to play piano when your a kid.
