Many parents wonder what piano to choose from a rich offer available on the market. When a child starts to learn how to play the piano, we are also afraid to buy an instrument at the beginning of their learning journey.

Not knowing if our child will get discouraged quickly, we postpone the purchase decision or we buy cheap organs, saying to ourselves “let him have anything”. From an economic point of view, this approach is justified, but from the point of view of learning and encouraging the child to start playing, not so much.

Perfect piano for a child

Dear parent, if you take piano lessons seriously, remember to choose a professional pianist as a piano teacher. A pianist will not only teach them how to play the piano, but above all sensitize them to the world of music.

The aim is to show that playing an instrument is also a lot of fun and a challenge. Therefore, the best solution is a professional pianist teaching your child with a live, acoustic piano. Consider buying or even renting a piano if the cost of buying a piano is too high at the moment. You can also regularly visit a music school or other cultural institution where your child will be able to rent a room for a piano practice.

If you think that playing the piano means just pressing your fingers on keys, you are wrong. Correct hand positioning, the shaping of the “playing apparatus” is a challenge for every student and teacher. A keyboard should not be considered if you are serious about your child’s education. It is a soulless machine with delicate keys, without any resistance to the playing or dynamics. An acoustic piano is a much better solution for professional education in your home.

If you decided to purchase a piano, remember that it has to be technically efficient and in tune. It does not have to be the most beautiful and immediately „top shelf”. Keep in mind that used pianos do not lose their value like cars. If you plan to sell it after some time, you are able to recover invested money.
