Buying A Piano As A Gift

For some, their wishes and dreams may fit in a small box that fits easily between the other gifts. But for others, their gift is a little larger in size.

What if you surprised your loved one with the piano they have long since dreamed about?

Creating music is a gift that keeps on giving. If you buy the right piano, it’s a gift that can keep on giving for years.

But how do you know what piano to buy? Yes, there’s an art to buying a piano as a gift. Here’s how to do it right.

Who is the gift for?

Who is the gift for and how many will be influenced by this decision? Buying a piano for a spouse or your child is different than if you are buying it for a grandchild or a nephew. Start by assessing what piano is best for all involved, even asking parents for advice if it will take up space in their home.

If you choose an acoustic piano, it will provide elegance, sophistication and beauty to the home. If you choose digital, you can expand on a love of electronics, and allow the budding musician to express herself in an entirely new way. Acoustic pianos will take up more space, whether you choose a vertical or grand piano. Digital pianos may be stored when not in use. Both can be excellent ways to start the process and learn piano once and for all. Both offer unique ways to approaching the love and joy of bringing a piano into their lives.

Dealer or Private?

There are many ways to buy a piano. You can choose one from a private party you find on Craigslist. You can find one at your local big box store. Or you can select one from a reputable dealer. But what’s the difference?

Choosing one from a private party means you take whatever is given, with no options and no return. While choosing a piano from a big box store may give the receiver the option of making a return or an exchange, it only offers a very select choice. If you select from a reputable dealer, you have two distinct advantages. First, you can spend your time learning about the various options you have. You can test pianos, find the best sound for you, and choose based on ability and desires. Second, if the recipient would like to make an exchange, the option is always open. They can come in and make a selection that is better suited for their needs.

How do you wrap it up?

Making the decision may be the difficult part, But wrapping up the piano and placing it under the tree will be lots of fun. Imagine your loved one’s face when they rip off the paper and find one of their biggest dreams nestled safely underneath.

Make this the year you give them the gift of music. Stop by our showroom today and we’ll help you find the perfect piano.

Giving The Gift Of A Piano

Are you looking to buy a piano for someone this year? Well, you still have time to buy one and get it tuned and ready to play before the big day!

Here are some tips to help you buy a piano for someone special:

First, remember that your recipient will be playing, looking and enjoying their piano for a long time. Since the average lifespan of a piano is about 40 years, they are sure to enjoy this beautiful gift throughout much of their life. Make sure it fits their needs, and is something that can be incorporated into their current lifestyle and surroundings – a grand piano may not be the best choice for an urban dweller with 900 square feet of space.

Giving The Gift Of A PianoPianos hold their value for years to come. A used piano built 10 years ago and maintained well will cost almost as much as a comparable new piano. Keep this in mind when choosing a piano for someone.

Price and size do not reflect tone and quality. Each piano is unique and will give you different results. What are your expectations for the future? Will the recipient be playing classical music for the symphony, or writing pop music and using technology to its highest degree? Be sure to talk with the sales team and express the recipients interests before you make your final selection.

Buying a piano is only part of the process. Where will the piano be placed? Rely on professional movers to place the piano in its final destination. And once its in place, it will need to be maintained on a regular basis, which means tuning as it settles in to its new environment.

Not sure how to give the gift of a piano? There are actually several ways to go about it.

  • Work with the recipient to determine the best piano for his or her situation. You can present the gift, then come into our location to help them make the final selection.
  • Surprise them with a purchase. We can set it up anywhere you choose.
  • Or somewhere in between. Keep the surprise in place, and visit our location after to choose the best piano for the recipient.

Which ever way you choose, your gift will be treasured for a lifetime.
