Elements to Consider When Looking for a Piano

To find the right piano for you there are a few factors you need to consider. To effectively compare your options, keep in mind your skill level, intended use, and how much money you’re willing to spend. Ask yourself the following questions to narrow down your search and enjoy the benefits playing piano brings:


  • What is my budget?
  • What size piano do I need?
  • What are the best brands on the market?
  • What type of piano do I prefer?
  • How easy is it to use?

        How much does it cost to maintain?

You can spend as little as $100 for an electronic keyboard or as much as $10,000 for a grand piano. If you’re a beginner or enjoy playing piano as a hobby, there is no need to spend so much money on one. There are quality brands that offer pianos or keyboards at great prices.

Another element to consider is how much sound it makes. Electronic or digital pianos can be played wearing headphones and range from loud to silent. Upright pianos, for instance, offer a good amount of sound while a grand piano will give off the maximum sound.

As of maintaining your piano, grand and upright pianos require tuning services which normally ranges from $100-$200 a year. Digital and electronic keyboards don’t have any maintenance fees. If well maintained, you can significantly increase its lifespan.

Whether you are a first-time buyer or in search to upgrade your piano, these are all factors you need to consider making a good selection.
