Let’s say you really love the sound of an acoustic (real) piano and you don’t want anything else. This would limit you to Upright, Baby Grand and Grand Pianos however, if you have the budget and real estate to go for this option then why not?
Acoustic Pianos will obviously vary depending on builder and brand but will overall have 88 decently weighted keys and three pedals (soft pedal, sostenuto pedal, and damper pedal).
Electric/ Stage/ Digital Pianos:
Now you’ve got yourself a piano of an electric or acoustic style, you may be thinking “what else do I need to become the next Elton John/ Jordan Rudess/ Franz Liszt?”
Well here’s a couple of bits and bobs that can help give you that little edge on your first few steps of your Piano playing journey.
Once you get started playing piano you’re going to find that you’re spending a lot of time in front of sheet music. Why not impress all your friends with a super sleek music stand to place your sheet music on? Check out our range of stands here.
Whilst not necessary it is certainly encouraged for you to use a piano stool whilst practicing/ performing; the height adjustability is really important when trying to maintain good technique as well as pushing you into better posture whilst playing.
Every good Pianist has a large repertoire so why not start off by grabbing a few books of music? Whilst we stock all the exam books that you could possibly need, we also have plenty of collections of modern musical theatre and rock + pop for you to purchase and learn- you’ll be the life and soul of every party that has a piano!
