For people looking to get started with an instrument, a piano is a great idea. There are a lot of documented benefits to learning how to play the piano. It is a known reliever of stress, it helps people learn to focus and concentrate, and it can help increase memory capacity and problem solving skills. As far as the instrument itself is concerned, the piano is one of the few instruments that can play multiple instruments at once, that is to say the piano is polyphonic and so can create melodies and harmonies without the need for supporting instruments. All in all it is a pretty great instrument to learn, and one instrument that you can keep learning for the rest of your life.
However, one problem a lot of people seem to face is that once they do decide to get a piano, they are unsure about which one to get for themselves. Well, ideally you do not want to work on keyboards, which do not have any weighted keys at all if you want a piano like experience. You will do well with digital pianos with weighted keys and acoustic pianos. Both of these will give you a great musical experience, and both can be used at multiple levels of experience.
The choice between the two comes down to a few things such as money, time, and convenience. While we understand why some people will want to look for the acoustic piano, you will find that a digital piano will be better suited to most people’s needs in the current world. The digital pianos are cheaper, require less space and maintenance and are also able to record the sounds you play to save for later. Nowadays you can get the same sound quality from both types of pianos as well.
