Have you wanted to pick up an instrument and be musical? Have you thought about taking piano lessons and eventually getting your own piano. Used pianos can also be an option while you are still learning the instrument. It’s not impossible to learn the piano if you have no prior musical experience; just expect it to take you a little longer at the start to master the fundamentals of reading music. After all, everyone needs to start somewhere!
Pianos can be broken down into three types of categories. Grand pianos, Upright pianos, and digital pianos. Each of these pianos have their own unique features that are designed for specific pianist’s needs and environments. An upright piano costs between $3000 – $6500 on average. High-end upright pianos average around $10,000 – $25,000. Entry level grand pianos costs between $7000 – 30,000. High-end grand pianos such as Steinway, Bosendorfer, and Yamaha can cost between $65,000 – $190,000.
Like antique books, antique pianos are not worth a lot of money just because they are old. In actuality these old instruments may be worth very little at all. Most antique, upright pianos are worth $500 or less in very good condition. This is because a piano is actually a machine.
