Where to Buy Used Pianos at a Reasonable Price
Before you buy a piano you need to know how to buy a used piano for beginners. Once you know what you want and what to look for, here are some pianos to look at:
Upright pianos are called that because their strings run vertically. They are housed in a box that stands upright. Here are some upright pianos from Amazon:

Grand piano strings run horizontally. They are housed in a horizontal box. A feature of the grand piano is that it has a “flap” that can open, making the sound more beautiful. Below are some grand pianos from Amazon.

Next you may want to look at digital pianos. They are cheaper than real pianos and sound similar. You also get “grand” digital pianos for the look rather than sound. Here are some examples:

As for which piano you should go for – only you know your circumstances and the talent of your children. If you have a little Mozart, then you need a piano. If your children are still experimenting, and you don’t know whether one or more of them are going to have a passion for piano and music, then start with a digital piano.
Once you’ve got your piano, you will want to learn to play the piano for beginners or kids.
