VIDEO: Dirk and I go piano shopping!

Dirk’s been in the market for a piano for quite some time. The only chance he gets to play these days is on the Steinway at his parents’ house in Maine. (There’s a video of him playing it here.) But that’s an hour and half away, and as a composer, he really needs to have a piano at the ready so he can create whenever his muse calls him. So… we’re going piano shopping!

Ideally we’d get something called a hybrid, which is a digital piano with a mechanical mechanism. They’re small enough to fit in our house but still sound beautiful, plus the digital functionality would allow him to play with headphones, which would really come in handy (we have downstairs neighbors). They’re really pricey, though… the one he really likes is listed at $15,000. We’re also looking at straight-up digital pianos, which are a lot less expensive (the good ones range from $2,500 to about $6,000), then we’d eventually trade up. The important thing, I think, is just to get a keyboard in the house. Then I have a feeling we’ll start seeing a lot more compositions like these. Time to start saving money… or perhaps find a rich benefactor. Volunteers, anyone?
