I met a numerous people in the past that would rather rent a piano than buy one, because they are not sure if they would truly enjoy and keep attending their piano lessons for too long. Renting this musical instrument also means that they get to invest as little as possible. Here are five reasons you should rather consider a piano rental when you are unsure about taking piano lessons:
You are not sure how long you will stay in your current location – If you have a penchant for traveling or you want to work abroad at some stage in your life, I will definitely advise you to opt for renting a piano. In doing so, you do not have to worry about transporting your piano from one location to the next. This can prove to be costly if you move abroad and you do not want to part with your beloved piano.
Your child wants to take piano lessons but she changes her mind constantly – Children change their minds rather frequently about what they prefer to do in life, especially when it comes to hobbies. If you are not perfectly sure how your child feels about piano lessons, you can rent a piano and see how she progresses from there onward. If your child is not keen on continuing with the lessons, you can easily return the piano rental and it will not cost you more money.
You are a college student studying away from home – You have recently enrolled in a college, but you still want to keep on playing the piano. This would be a great time to rent one, so that you can practice your lessons. Playing the piano is also a great way to release the stress you acquire from continuously studying!
You first want to get used to the feel of a piano – Not many people are prepared to buy a piano simply to get used to the idea of owning and playing one. A piano is a huge musical instrument and can produce exceptionally rich, sonorous sounds that might not be ideal for people who live very close to their neighbors. To get used to the feel and the sound of the instrument at home, I would recommend that people first obtain a piano rental.
You are not sure about the type of piano to buy – Buying a piano is a permanent decision and since there are various types of pianos available out there, it can be very difficult to determine which type is best for your musical needs. When you choose to obtain a piano rental, you can opt for an upright for about a year or so, and perhaps, change to a grand piano the following year. Once you are 100% sure about the piano type that you prefer, you can start looking for the right one to purchase.
You need to know that renting a piano is not expensive and most of the time, it is the best decision you can make for yourself or your child. As with renting a house or a rental car, you need to first conduct enough research in relation to the piano rental company. Take the time to visit the piano dealer or Rental Company, so that you can have a hands-on experience with the pianos that you are considering renting.
Check the piano’s overall condition meticulously before you decide to rent it. This will save you the time of bringing it back to the rental company to exchange with a better piano. Find out if the rental company offers a minimum rental period, because as far as I know, most rental companies do not offer minimum rental periods, which means that you would not be able to rent a piano for less than a year.
Are you excited and ready to rent a piano for your home?
