New Year, New Piano
As we enter 2018, many of us have made our New Year’s resolutions. Without a shadow of a doubt, some of those resolutions will be music related! Every year there are those among us who vow that they are going to learn a new musical instrument, and actually try to stick it out for the whole year (and beyond)! I wonder, how many of you have vowed to learn to play the piano?
The best possible solution for beginning to learn the piano is to invest in a digital instrument. A digital piano or digital keyboard is a sound investment for a number of reasons, but here are the top three:
No need to tune a digital piano!
One of the biggest costs involved in owning and maintaining an acoustic keyboard instrument is having it tuned. A lot of people don’t realise it, but pianos need to be tuned annually (even more for an old instrument) and the cost of this can be up to £150 a time. Investing in a digital piano or digital keyboard ensures that you will never incur tuning costs.
Digital pianos are cheaper than acoustic pianos!
A good quality digital piano such as the brand new Kawai KDP-110 has everything you could possibly need in a piano, and comes at just a fraction of the price. A CDP-345 or similar Chase Direct digital piano has all of the features needed to see a learner through from grades one to eight and beyond!
There is an abundance of additional features on a digital piano!
Most digital pianos come with extra piano voices, a metronome, and a recording function. Of course, none of these features can be found on an acoustic piano so if you wanted to make sure your playing was in time with a metronome, you would incur an extra cost!
