Did you know that piano sales have increased this year!!

The New York Times reported a resurgence in ‘at home music making’ with sales of digital pianos increasing by 30% and acoustic pianos increasing in the used market! Which begs the question … should you buy digital or acoustic?

Here at Simply Music, we’re not too precious, when it comes to your choice of instrument, many teachers will insist on beginning on a good-quality acoustic piano in order to develop particular technical habits to prepare you for advanced playing.

If you’re in the market for a new instrument or just window shopping here is a series of blog posts we have done previously about choosing the best instrument for you.
