PSR-S970 / PSR-2100

My Musical Journey

(Dec, 2017) My name is Toril V. Susegg, I come from Norway and I was born in 1960. We had a farm, but when I was 4 years old, we moved to the town of Trondheim, where I have lived ever since. I have always loved music, and my mother used to sing a lot. No one in my close family played an instrument, but my mother purchased a guitar when I was seven, hoping I would learn to play it. I never did, and my niece got it. But the year after, I heard a boy playing accordion at a school concert, and I was awestruck! I felt something in my heart that is hard to describe, and from that moment I only wanted one thing, an accordion! At Christmas my mother and father made that wish come true, and I can still remember how happy I was! I have played accordion ever since.

I love to make melodies, and call myself an amateur musician and melody maker. I learned songs by listening to them. Except for maybe 10 hours with an accordion teacher I have had no musical education.

In 1990, I purchased my first keyboard, a PSR-47! I made many melodies on that funny little machine, and eventually started to play at birthday and Christmas parties, senior centers, hospitals and such. When I perform, I always play a mix of self made songs and well known songs, and I also read poems and essays that I have written myself.

In September 2003, I purchased my PSR 2100, and this was a huge step upwards for me! With this keyboard I started to play even more for different societies, and it inspired me to make a lot of new tunes! But I only used internal styles. I have extremely low vision, and the screen of the 2100 was difficult for me to see.

In the spring of 2017, I finally decided it was time to look for a new keyboard. While searching on the internet for new Yamaha models, I stumbled upon PSR Tutorial, and was so impressed with all the great and useful features this site can offer that I hurried to become a member. Got my forum profile in May, and have learned more these last months than all previous years on my own. In September 2017, I purchased an audio interface, installed audacity on my computer and started posting songs on the forum. I have no other friends who play keyboard, so it was so exciting to find a lot of people on the forum that I could discuss all things keyboard with! I have received so much help here, and listened to so much outstanding music. Knowing that I had a lot of forum friends that I could turn to, I purchased my new keyboard, an S970 in September 2017, and I want to thank all keyboard enthusiasts in PSR Tutorial for a wonderful community!

Note: in December 2018, a damaged S970 was replaced with a new S975 and Toril also purchased a used Tyros5.
