Yes, though the OP would run the risk of any new neighbors being more sensitive to sound than the prior tenants, and complaining.

It behooves someone who has found a place that accepts his or her piano playing to line up additional potential tenants who will be as tolerant in case of a vacancy.

I’ve been trying to imagine any sound worse than a keyboard student clunking away for hours at the ivories ... perhaps a pneumatic drill or my mother-in-law’s tongue (just kidding!),

Other than an guaranteed soundproof box in which to practice in situ , it would seem apt (before a morning 20-pace duel with the neighbour) to move to Siberia.
(the Russians are said to be keen on music).

You might consider a silent Virgil Practice Clavier in addition to a decent electric keyboard. I find mine extremely helpful.

One of the problems that the OP may eventually face is finding an appropriate apartment without knowing, until the piano is moved in, whether the piano will be a bother to neighbours. It's not as if pianos and serious piano students are common tenants in modern apartments. In many instances comparisons with TV's and stereos are not always apt.

Regards,
