Paul Jackson

(Jun, 2002) - Paul Jackson lives in Geelong Australia. He is 30 years of age and works for Ford Motor Co. as a Training Facilitator. His hobbies are playing keyboard and golf (although he has been advised to stick to keyboard since he has an 18 handicap as a golfer). Paul likes going to the gym when time permits and is always a happy-go-lucky kind of guy.

Musical Background: My first keyboard was a very small Casio with 1/2 size keys that only had about six styles and just as many voices. I had that keyboard for about five years until my fingers were just too big to play it anymore. So I begged the golden oldies for a new one and upgraded to a Yamaha PSR something. I can't remember the model, but compared to the small Casio, it was like upgrading from a mini minor to a Ferrari. I had that keyboard for about four years, and then, after I joined the work force, I realised I could afford an even better keyboard. One day, when I happened to hear someone playing the Roland E-30, my heart skipped a beat -- I couldn't believe the sound quality that was coming from this keyboard. I had to have me one of these suckers. Then I saw the price tag and my heart skipped another beat: $2,500 Australian. But, I worked my butt off for two months and then went in and bought it. I didn't sleep for week; the only time I came out of my bedroom was to eat and go to work. The rest of the time I was making noise.

I've still got that keyboard. but it never gets used now. I bought a PSR GX76 in June, '01 and this June I bought the PSR-2000. I'm still learning my way around the 2000, but I am having heaps of fun with it. It's so flexible in what you can do with it; it gives you so many options. I've played one gig at a function with a friend of mine who was singing. We have a couple more gigs lined up around some of the clubs in the next month or so, but generally I just play at home for my own amusement. I use the PSR GX76 as the bottom keyboard and use it mainly as a piano since it has 76 keys. I use the PSR-2000 on the top for everything else. (Double Stack arrangement, that way it makes me look professional.hehe). I've never had lessons, and cannot read music, so I play all my songs by ear.
