About Me


You are likely visiting this site because you are in the market for a piano. Perhaps you are just starting out, perhaps you have been playing for years and interested in the latest offerings, or perhaps you are just thinking about starting piano lessons and wonder what the instrument investment is.


I am a piano instructor, and one topic parents or students always want to know, “what piano should I buy?” I realize they are not asking “what’s the best piano” but “what makes most sense for me?” With this in mind, I have created this website to help my students as well as you make a sound decision.

I am a pianist who performs as accompanist, chamber musician and freelancer, and with that I have played numerous instruments over the years, and so I am here to share what instruments I believe to be worth a look.


People often fall into camps of this brand verses that brand, but then they follow-up and say, you really need to play each piano because every piano is different, and what prefer is a matter of personal taste. So what gives? This makes it very confusing when in the market for a new piano.

Many who are searching for an instrument have decided they are looking for a keyboard, either because they assume it will make better financial sense, or because it is more compact than an acoustic piano. I agree, keyboards cannot exactly replicate the sound and feel of an acoustic piano, one can get the benefits of a piano with a proper keyboard.

One of the first things I look for in a keyboard is what’s known as “weighted keys”. You want a piano to give feedback relative to how hard or soft you press the keys- this is one thing I always ask parents to look for, as this is the feature that is going to get you closest to an authentic piano feel. I say this not just for those at the student level, but as a professional, I would be fine playing a gig on an inexpensive keyboard so long as it has weighted keys that I felt give me some room to be musical.

So with that, do you have to spend a lot of money for a keyboard with weighted keys? No.


The purpose of this is site then is to have a central place where you can compare brands and models of keyboards against each other in your price point.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
