However, there's a great range of keyboards and second hand pianos that can make getting a piano way less expensive. Your piano teacher will be happy to answer any questions you have, simply find a piano teacher you like and send them a message! We've got a few tips for choosing a piano too - something ideally you'll have in place before taking piano lessons in Durham.....
There are multiple things to take into consideration when purchasing a piano – should I buy an acoustic or digital piano? Upright or grand piano? How much do I need to spend? Here are some things our expert piano teachers recommend you take into account when choosing your piano. Your piano lessons in Durham will be so much more meaningful if you have the right piano to practice and perform on.
In modern piano stores, the instruments are seldom more than 10 years old – and therefore in good shape. How much a piano wears over times varies greatly. There are some makers who are known for their quality e.g. Steinway, Bösendorfer and Fazioli. These are worth considering. If you are buying a second-hand piano it is more likely to be an older instrument and you should be aware that the price is likely to match the condition of the piano. It is still possible, if looked after, to learn to play piano on an instrument 50 or even 100 years old. The key thing is understanding the maintenance and tuning history of the piano as best as you can. Your piano tutor will be able to advise on the tone and general condition of the piano you're looking at in your piano lessons in Durham and many of our piano tutors will be happy to spend some time assessing the quality of the instrument you have chosen to learn to play the piano on. Ask your piano teacher for specific advice when you need it.
Here's an idea of some different price brackets to consider...
Price Range 1: Digital piano. Price range: £200-£1000 Digital pianos are great for beginners, for players who are looking to play keyboards rather than piano, and for anyone who doesn't have room in their house for an acoustic piano. It's possible to have piano lessons on an instrument in this price range as well. If it has weighted keys, you rpiano teacher will be happy!
Price Range 2: Acoustic piano. Price range: £500-£5000 Acoustic pianos are great for beginners to advanced players. Your piano teacher can give advice on how to proceed.
Price Range 3: Grand piano. Price range: £5000-£50.000 Grand pianos are wonderful instruments if you have the space in your home. Here you get a whole extra range of tone and volume, by adjusting the lid. Our piano teachers love giving piano lessons in Durham on these instruments but they are by no means essential for piano lessons to take place.
