How “good" of a piano should I buy is a question probably asked since Bartolomeo Cristofori made his second piano. It is actually a pretty easy question to answer with the standard "buy the best one you can afford" retort, but that seems a smug answer to the uniformed. In most cases the "uninformed" is the non-playing spouse of a player, and the non-playing parents of a student. And what is a "good" piano anyhow? For most individuals it IS the best piano you can afford. Let me explain in simple terms, the first rule is that you can only play as well as the piano you must practice on performs. If a beginner is forced to play on an instrument that will not hold a tune, a couple of notes do not work or are sluggish, and does not respond well (bad action), their learning process will be severely stunted, and they will probably quit. A good piano for them would be a particularly good sounding instrument with a smooth well-regulated action that would encourage a student to play it. These pianos tend to cost a more than the "entry level " piano shaped objects out there. For intermediate to pro level players a good piano for them is one that meets and even may surpass their skill level. These pianos go up in price as the tone and touch quality rises, but you will play better on a better piano without a doubt. So, the bottom line? Get the best piano you can afford; it will be money well spent.
