If you already own an acoustic grand or upright piano, but you have your eye on a shiny new one, there may be opportunities for you to use your existing piano to purchase the piano of your dreams.
Just like most things, becoming a great pianist takes lots and lots of practice.
Making daily practice a part of your routine can help you achieve your musical goals.
Many people these days seem to be interested in the industries heavily promoted “hybrid pianos" as an alternative to acoustic models.
