so much literature to buying a piano...

We need to get C a real piano now. She has a keyboard which she plays on but a keyboard is still only just that. The density and pressure she needs to punch on are so different and she really needs to work those muscles on her tiny hands.

So we are on a piano-hunt now.

We don't need to get her a brand new one because it's really too steep so a well maintained second hand one will do. And if we get a good 2nd hand one, it will still last us a good 20 years. I have been doing some research over the Internet and now I have such a headache. I didn't know there is so much to getting a piano.

Firstly, there are so many brands and models to choose from and then there are things like age of the piano especially if they are imported from other countries like Japan, China, and Europe. Then we need to consider the weather and humidity as well because the wood and soundboard, strings amongst other react differently to our climate.

Some pianos like good, old wine, age very well and sound brilliant yet at the same time, we have to be mindful if these pianos have been gently or heavily used by the previous owners. And I also just found out there are at least 36 piano shops on our little island.

Now, I am trying to finish reading this and digest the information before we go test out some pianos this Friday.

  • It's been a while since we sat ourselves in a plane. Definitely itching to fly over, to let our hair loose, to catch up with friends and be tourists.
