Pianos For Beginners
Any questions? – Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Go for a digital piano for anyone of any age that wants to learn.
I advise spending between £500 and £700 if your children are just starting out. Spending less than £500 will get you a piano that looks great, but performs badly – so it won’t feel close enough to a real piano and could (probably will) cause your child to learn with a bad technique.
Here’s a list of all digital pianos in the £500 – £700 price bracket I recommend, that are good enough for learning on.

Now, if £500 is more than you want to spend. I completely understand…
So, here’s some alternatives for you:
Pay between £35 and £60 per month for a piano. If you buy within a certain period (usually 6 months) then all rental payments are deducted from the purchase price. You just pay the balance. This is my favourite, because you can spread the first few payments interest-free, then pay it off at the 6 month point.
You also have the option of returning the piano, or continuing to rent
2) Interest-Free Payment Plan
There is the Arts Council-backed scheme offering any digital piano, no matter the price, to families with children or young adults learning to play. To qualify, the person learning has to be under the age of 25
3) Buy something cheap to start out
Now, this isn’t something I’d shout from the roof tops about, but if you don’t want to splash the cash so early on, then it’s OK. I suppose. But only for a maximum of 6 months!.. Then you’d need to upgrade to a piano from the list above if your children take to it. 6 months is a good gauge, because it’s enough time to see if they’re still showing an interest and really progressing with it…
Now this bit is nice… Some companies will sell you a cheaper piano or keyboard with an option to upgrade it to a better one later, using 100% of the price as an upgrade. Good deal, eh?
