I'm about at this level:

I know what transposition is, key signature, order of sharps and flats,
"Every girl bites dead fish", etc. I even used to be able to sight-read
both clefs. But I'm not a keyboard player. This is for playing around.

Kind of leaning towards an Akai - gets good reviews. I'll look around on
Craigslist a bit too.
