Now you have easy access to the professional piano instructors of Hunterdon Academy of the Arts, at our new campus location in Lebanon!
While the appearance and mechanics of the piano have evolved significantly since the eighteenth century, the instrument has hardly lost its great appeal. Moreover, piano lessons continue to be a critical component specifically of music education, and more generally, piano studies remain what many still consider to be an important part of a well-rounded education. Several other reasons also suggest that you may want to consider the piano as your instrument of choice.
Yes, pianos can be pricey to purchase, but if you are hesitant to make that investment just yet, there are low-cost alternatives. Among these, we have had a wonderful relationship with the Jacobs Music Company in Lawrenceville, NJ, which offers our students a rent-to-own piano lease program on very low monthly rates. Another low-cost solution is the purchase of an electronic keyboard, at least temporarily to get you started. These now come in a great variety of models and price ranges. If you go that route, please make sure that the keyboard has weighted keys and is touch-sensitive. Ultimately, the traditional acoustic piano will yield the greatest musical benefits.
