If you’re thinking of buying a piano, there’s a lot to consider apart from the price and how it sounds and looks. Although most people initially think of owning an acoustic piano, sales of digital pianos have been increasing steadily for years, and they now outsell their acoustic counterparts as they’re often more suitable for today’s lifestyle – the ability to use headphones, for example, means you can practise in silence any time of the day or night. You can also hook up a digital piano to free apps that can help you learn to play, or connect your smartphone and play along with your favourite music.
But, as it often the case with modern life, too much choice and information can make your head hurt. If this is the case, it’s worth taking a step back and focusing on the basics; after all, choosing a new piano should be fun.
