Can you Do It Yourself?
I have been a professional piano tuner for decades, but I still remember well a time when I was a young piano player, knowing nothing at all about tuning.

How to Gently Extend the Practice Session for Beginners

I will give you the right piano buying advice so you can make your own decision on whether the digital piano or the upright piano is right for your needs.
