I grew up taking piano lessons, and we always had a piano in the home. That was important to my mom. When I was young we moved across the country and my parents didn’t take much furniture with them. I remember my mom bought a piano before anything else for our new house.

I check on Craigslist all the time for a piano because I can almost always find them for free, like this beauty (they usually need some work though and have to be picked up).
