Digital piano < 88 keys?

Have you ever seen a portable digital piano - not merely a controller - with graded hammer action but fewer than 88 keys? Some of the big music stores have told me that they don't know of any. (Counter-examples: The Studiologic VMK-161 Plus is a controller with 61-key hammer action, but it has no internal sounds. The Yamaha YPG-225/DGX-220 is a 76-key piano/synth but apparently doesn't have hammer action.) Thanks.

Where can I play piano in Brooklyn?

Does anyone know a place where I can play piano in Brooklyn? I am living in Cobble Hill until August, and am looking for a place to keep in practice. I was bumming out at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music for a while, but it's not too convenient to travel to and it's pricey ($15/hr.) I am not a classical player, so don't need a place for hours a day. In fact, I would be happy with two hours or so a week.

Orchestral/piano .pdf scores?

I’d like to look at a full-length piano arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty ballet (Op. 66 – La belle au bois dormant). I could buy one, or find a music library, but do you know whether any edition is freely accessible on-line? For future reference, are there any particular sites that you like as a source for pdf’d classical music scores?

sing us a song, you're the piano man

Many pianists I know know many of the popular songs -- moonlight sonata, chariots of fire, piano man, the "Peanuts" song, fur elise, etc. Is there a list of the most popular piano pieces out there, both contemporary and classical? Even better if there is a songbook with the sheet music? Even better if it's available online? I'm looking to learn a few dozen songs with my free time in the Fall.
