I was debating as to whether it would be better to purchase a piano for my home first, or to get some groundwork in lessons before making the investment. In a perfect world, I could get both at once, but one always must budget this day in age. Either option is about 6-12 months off, though the meantime I'm learning some basics online and with a keyboard.
Piano first: benefit is that I'd have something to practice on regularly when I DO get lessons
Lessons first: the piano will be more rewarding when I do get it.
What say you?
