What book should I buy?
Great question! I learned from Alfred's beginner piano book and highly recommend it to beginners and children.
For teenagers and adults, there is an adult version by Alfred that is also nice. Please click here to purchase.
Should I get my piano tuned?
Maybe. It depends how important good sound is to you and your family. I would say yes if you have the budget and enjoy good sound. A typical piano tuning costs around $115 and is well-worth it to keep your instrument in good condition for the long-run and to properly train your ears. I highly recommend Jackson Pianos in the Central West End. Please mention my name as a referral when you call for a special discount.
