    hello mummies.
    May I ride on this thread?
    Hoping to get your opinions...

    For a child who has completed 2 years of JMC at yamaha and is going on to one-to-one piano learning, what kind of piano would you get for her? She is not sooooo passionate about it (maybe not at this age?) but can play those songs learnt at yamaha decently. SHe also wants to continue to learn. She does not dislike lessons. She practises daily (but does not take initiative to go practice - needs reminder) She has a younger sis who has just started JMC too. The younger one is very excited. She seems more 'passionate' but eh... dunno whether will last or not.. :p

    Now, I need to buy a piano. I am thinking of getting a 121cm piano that will last her till higher grades -that is, if she/they make it to that. If not, I can sell if off. Thinking of getting a new one. My hb and I do not play piano and we don't have the confidence to buy a used one, though that will of course be more affordable (less 'risky' too i.e. shd the girls dislike piano and stop learning in future, we wouldn't feel the pinch). But a used one can present problems if a not-so-good one is chosen. Quite undecided about this. My heart is inclined towards stretching budget a bit to get a new one. Then hopefully, girls will enjoy it and use it for a long time. If I get a used / low one, and they like piano playing, I will have to buy another one when they reach higher grades. But is buying a new one for young kids an unwise move?

    Pls share your experiences with your children. thanks.

    Hi pink tulip,

    I was also in the same dilemma as you two years back. Then finally we settled on a Yamaha one in the lowest range which cost about $3000+ because couldn't afford something more than this price.

    hi bishanmum

    Thanks for sharing. Are your kids still playing the piano and enjoying it?

    hi pink tulip,

    I played the piano and had lessons till Grade 8, and am sure that my parents faced the same dilemma. Like Bishanmum, they bought the lowest grade Yamaha for me (and my 3 sisters) which I still have in my home now... and then when I was preparing for my Grade 7 exam, they bought an European brand piano (forgot which brand it was now...) that cost them $15k or $18k. Which was *blink a lot of money for one generation ago. My family was a single-income earning family - dad is a teacher, so it must have been quite a stretch for them....

    First piano was bought in consultation w the Yamaha piano school's teacher. Second piano - they were more choosy - they got a family fren who played the instrument to go shopping with them and test out the pianos.

    I think the feel and tone of each brand's piano is very personal. BUT if you know someone who plays or used to play the piano, take them piano shopping as well.

    A piano is a big investment in your children's musical education.... May your daughters have many happy hours of playing and enjoying music!

    PS. I m biased but I do think the impt thing is to learn how to appreciate good music and to sift good music fm the bad, not pass Grade 1-8 and Diploma exams! Even now, most pop and rock sounds really bad (ie basic and unimaginative) to me in terms of musical composition.
    I like Bon Jovi though! [​IMG]

    hi cellow

    I like your sharing. I can identify with it. Thank you for sharing so sincerely.[​IMG]

    yes, I do hope they will enjoy the piano, appreciate good music..

    So you come from a big family - you and 3 other sisters!
  18. cellow

    cellow Active Member

    hi Pink tulip,
    yea big family indeed... [​IMG]
    That's prob why my parents decided ok la, send us all for lessons and buy the piano.

    My parents also exposed us to all kinds of music CDs and incorporated music into our lives.... One of my earliest memories as a bb/toddler was being held by Dad and dancing around the living room to FM90.5 kind of music. awww.
    ... Mum sang nursery rhymes to us, but after music lessons, I soon realised that her pitching... well let's just say she hasnt got perfect pitch la ha... heh

    hmmz, deviating fm the thread discussion now... shall stop here. PM me if you wanna know more abt the tone/feel of each piano brand.

    Actually used pianos are normally perfectly fine as well. Lots of parents buy already then realise their little ones dun really like lessons!

    Hi pink tulip,

    Yes, my boy is still using it, just completed his Grade 3 exam. My girl is going to start learning very soon. By then, they would have to take turns to use the piano.

    I'm letting my Yamaha U1J piano (like brand new, bought only last year and rarely used) go for a bargain price of $4700 (retail at $6800). It is still under manufacturer's warranty until 2013.

    This piano is great for beginners to advanced level (>Grade 8).

    Anyone who is able to recommend a successful buyer will get $100 commission as I need to sell it off asap. Moving to another by 21 Aug.

    For more information, sms 9130-9200 as I rarely check my email.

    Hi Mummies,

    How do you know whether your child is ready to register for grade 1 exam? Do you get the piano teacher to assess before the registration? Pls advise.

  29. yernying

    yernying Member

    to cj mum,grade 1 actually is very easy.all my students directly take grade 2 exam.for my opinion,if she still very young,can wait a while,then directly take grade 2.normally an experienced piano teacher knew how to do for your child.I always make sure students oledi prepared then register for the exam.

    cos registration period is during Jan to Feb,but the exam period is from June to Sept.means u r not advised to register b4 preparation.cos is ur child take the exam,u must confirm he/she ready or not 1st.

    hello, i have a Kingsburg piano lying around doing nothing for past 2 years. was playing between 2000-2007 till i reached grade 6. lost interest totally after. bought it from chiu piano at thomson plaza and they recommended me to sell on my own to get a little bit more. (selling to shops would get lowball prices apparently)

    its currently at my uncle's place after i moved houses temporarily. hari raya's coming so thinking of letting it go asap for 7-800 inclusive of delivery *will negotiate abt tuning at your place etc.

    will throw in the bench of course and all the books that i've had since pre-grade 1 days. (that's alot of books)

    do let me know here or on my phone at 9183 7469 or email me at heikal.shafrudin@gmail.com
