"O piano da Yamaha é o mais perfeito para tudo, ele tem um range de trabalho muito grande, é ótimo para tocar desde música clássica até rock and roll. Para o meu tipo de trabalho é excelente. Não é todo lugar aqui no Brasil que você encontra um piano legal, quanto mais um piano da categoria de um Yamaha, por isso, toda vez que venho ao Brasil, não abro mão de reencontrar o meu amigo C2".
