Hi, dear teacher Chris,
Haha, that is a good one
I could not teach you anything even if I was qualified for that.
But an amateur musician (which I assume you are) can hardly ever hope to compare with a professional who has devoted his/her life to making music. In that sense you never may be 'ready'. And Piano Society would be boring if everybody felt they needed to stand up to the pros. So do not let that stop you. There are many people here who are less 'ready' than you are.
BTW- Are you the same person who filed a patent for an improved speaker structure in 1993 ? Just curious.
