Another thing about practice is doing excercises, scales or studies that might not sound too good because they become maddening to the listener.

I sound really bad on the piano the first few times I play a new song too! I don't play any scales or anything but I know they do get annoying!

You should look into getting a Yamaha keyboard. I got one at Costco for about $130. I can practice with headphones and nobody else can hear. Plus the keys are "touch sensitive".

I will look into it, once I have the money for it. That would be awesome! Plus, my family might like me more if I get one.
