I feel most.
« on: March 13, 2019, 03:48:07 PM »
Some people in this forum GET tons of responses for their inquiry and I feel ignored completely when I submit a problem.Surely there is someone from somewhere in Canada on this forum I could talk to on the phone for help with my PSR s975, it seems I always ask nicely plus I'm nearly 70 and have no one around me to help,I paid $40.00 to be a member.And please don't tell me to go to the store where I bought it because I buy Every thing online I'm handicapped. Every time I submit my inquiry in writing it seems people don't understand what the problem really is.It would be so easy if I could talk live to someone who would be generous enough to give me a few minutes of their time.I can call any where in this very big country.
Thank you
ROBFIND Bob Findlay Trois-Rivieres, Quebec

Sorry you feel this way. I am not sure what your problem is though because I went back and looked at your posts and responses seemed about normal to me.
You seem to want personal help through direct contact. That would be much less normal. This is a forum, and the people are widely scattered across the world. If you ask specific questions you will a always get answers.
If the keyboard seems very intimidating, you might try calling the store where you bought it and asking if they or someone they know provides lessons. I know there are several places near me that do this, although not sure if they would do it at your home.
If you are in a senior living facility, do you have entertainers visit? Maybe they can help.
There are also excellent lesson documents on the forum. It is best to work through these. If you get stuck understanding a particular item, post a specific question.
To access lessons select the PSR Tutorial at top right.

Robfind. Mikf. has given you good advice reply. Generally forum member are always very helpful when they possibly can.
One of the main benefits of buying from a local dealer is the availability of them giving product advice.
Learning keyboards is a life time of learning, I have been playing keyboard for 40 years but we all lean something new everyday. provide a number of video tutorials to help leaning the s975...Search s975 video tutorials...just one Example.

I should have added that even if you bought on line there are many local music stores or music teaching academies that offer lessons and you should look these up on line. There may also be individuals offering keyboard lessons you can find on line.
Donít expect too much sympathy on the basis of age - you might be on the younger end of our forum demographics :D

A quick search showed a number of music schools in your town.
This one is a Yamaha dealer. Although they may not sell PSRs they might sell CVPs which are essentially the same technology, so should have the expertise you need. Certainly they should give you a starting point for helpful contacts.

I paid $40.00 to be a member

This has me puzzled.

I think he means he made a $40 contribution to become a supporting member. There is no fee to join the forums, but contributions to help pay for the site are always welcome, and I believe purchasing a style collection also counts as a contribution.

Hi Bob,
You can always ask if a member will talk to you via Skype.

Hi Bob --

I just wanted to offer encouragement. (And thanks for being a supporter!)

These computer-based instruments can be confusing. I did web support for our software product (before retiring). It's quite difficult to communicate both problem and solution when dealing with software and user interfaces! Sometimes it takes several iterations between question and answer to get to the heart of a problem. There are a few folks on the Forum who are amazingly patient and helpful. Hopefully, you'll give things a chance.

All the best -- pj
