Piano Requirements and Financials

Piano Requirements

An acoustic piano is ideal but not always practical for city living. All students need a minimum of a full size, 88-key, weighted digital piano with music rack, damper pedal, and adjustable bench. The Yamaha P-115 is ideal for the beginning student or those who have space/noise issues with their apartment. If you already own an acoustic piano, please maintain it with twice annual tunings. If you want to buy a piano, I am more than happy to help!
