There is no better time than the New Year to begin piano lessons. If you have been thinking of enrolling your child in piano lessons, don’t wait because piano lessons have valuable educational benefits for young children. Parents know this, but the most common excuse given is “we don’t have room in our home for a piano. ” This is an old fashioned excuse, because modern pianos come in all sizes. Just review the list of options below and make your decision today.
1. 76 key Portable Keyboard with Stand with Bench - Not a full size piano, but your beginner can practice on this for several years. It’s light weight, you can set it up anywhere, store it in the coat closet if you have to, and easily take it to grandma’s house. Get one with touch-sensitivity. I recommend a Yamaha because of the beautiful tone they have. Invest in a $20 portable bench also, because posture is especially important for beginners.
2. Full-size Portable Keyboard with Stand with Bench - This is an 88 key, full piano keyboard, but without the case. You just set it up on a stand anywhere, anytime. It is heavier, but still very portable and takes up a minimum amount of space. The Yamaha’s and Casio PX100 are great for beginners.
3. Acoustical Piano’s Now Come in All Sizes - Don’t be afraid to explore this possibility. You can find a size that is not much bigger than a full-size keyboard. It won’t be portable, but it also won't be the two-ton, back-breaking monster to move that your great grandmother had either. And it won't take up nearly the space. Acoustical pianos can also be rented to give you a chance to try it in your home first.
4. A Beautiful Grand Piano Can’t be Matched for Playing Enjoyment and Artistry - If you’re looking for a family heirloom your children can pass along to your grandkids make this investment. Grand pianos hold their value if you care for them and can even increase in value. Grand pianos also come in different sizes from 5 feet to 9 feet, as well as any wood tone, lacquered finish, and style to match your home décor.
Start your New Year by purchasing a piano that’s right for your home, and you and your children will enjoy the benefits for years to come.
