Pros and Cons of Acoustic and Electronic Pianos
So to answer the question “Which piano for you?,” take the time to consider each type and by all means play as many different types as you can. Even if you can't yet play a note, sit at the keyboard, press the keys, and make some sound. Have a friend or teacher make a recommendation or accompany you to a music store to demonstrate the different options available. Let your intuition play a role as well in choosing which model piano you prefer. The Table on the next page summarizes some of the important differences between the various acoustic and electronic keyboards. Only you can weigh each factor to determine which piano best suits your individual tastes, musical goals, and personality.
