Has your child been studying piano for some time now? Have you noticed the difference between an electronic keyboard and a piano? You've probably heard me talk about it, and it may be in the back of your mind, but it is probably time now to go ahead and buy a piano.
For some, waffling on this is due to the issue of space (piano or dining room table?) and for some it is financing (can you really justify spending thousands of dollars on a piano for a five year old?). At Keys 4/4 Kids, all the pianos are donated and are sold at very reasonable rates. It is worth checking out (though they can't help you figure out where to put it).
See me to borrow a book on piano shopping, in case you feel uncertain or overwhelmed!
