Upgrading to an acoustic from a digital piano? Why you should seriously consider keeping the digital

Posted on: July 12, 2012

Many people, when advised to get an acoustic piano, sell their digital piano. But, there are some reasons to keep the digital if you can afford to, both money and space wise.

First, a digital piano is useful for late night or early morning practicing, when others in the house, or the neighbours may not want to hear your playing.

Second, a digital piano is helpful if you have more than one student taking piano lessons in the home, especially as the students get older and there is a greater amount of practice time required per student.

Third, the digital piano is helpful in giving students the ability to play works that require two pianos.

Finally, a digital piano can be hooked up to a computer via a MIDI interface along with notation and/or sequencing programs to create compositions and arrangements by inputting the parts quickly from the piano keyboard, instead of mousing them in.
