Looking into getting a piano. I would like to learn to play and I want my children to learn as well. From what I have been looking at it looks like to get a decent piano we have to start at least in the 2,000 dollar range. Ouch, but I do want a piano that will last us many years. Any piano teachers out there that can give me advice on what brands & what age pianos I should look into to get our first piano?Answer Question
Here's a good article with a lot of details:
I personally have only had experience with Baldwins and Yamahas, both of which are well-known for their quality. A good piano store in your area should have a knowledgeable salesperson to help guide you in the right direction. I'd visit a few different places if possible.
One other note--pianos do require maintenance in the form of tuning by a professional. Even the best piano will not perform to a certain standard if it's not cared for according to the manufacturers specifications.
