Encouraging a child in music is the very first and perhaps most important job for parents to do.
Let me congratulate for having done this - regardless of piano chosen.
In our B.C. Canada area, many new excellent piano teachers have moved in giving children the best they can, be they old established "well known" teachers - or *not*.
Last Saturday I attended a concert by Vancouver's Senior Youth Symphonic Orchestra, it was fabulous.[ Berlin,London, move over..]
While there were about 80 active participants, I knew only very few of the 'stars' and hardly any of names of the teachers involved.
Yet they all helped to create some of the very best there is.
Later I was told that over 80% of the participants were children of recent immigrants being tought by a very high percentage of recent immigrant teachers.
As mentioned, I hardly had ever heard the names of any of the teachers involved.
And nobody knew - or cared - any the brands names these kids were playing, be they for their cellos, violins, clarinettes or what have you.
But the kids were absolutely fabulous and awe inspriring.
Why is it only in the piano industry that we take ourselves so serious all the time trying to justify or 'explain' what brand of piano a young student should own.
Or how 'famous' and 'established' such company has to be?
Why then not all buy Sauter pianos or other makers who had their origin at least some 200 years ago?
Considering the enthusiasm and the high level on which these young kids were performing, the answer would almost seem irrevelant.
Making music is still quite independent from all of this and choosing an instrument which is both affordable and is good sounding, doesn't need a lot more explanation.
Wishing you the very best!
