In general beginner students go to piano shops looking for digital pianos with weighted keys -piano students also look for deals which include a piano stand and a stool-. They normally base their enquiries on electric piano reviews they find online in an attempt of acquiring a cheap piano or weighted keyboard, that can allow them to practice. The final aim of every search is to find the best digital piano for beginners and/or the best digital piano shop in London. Piano auctions are another option. The London Piano Auctions is London’s most popular and traditional piano auction house, they normally have around 80 pianos on display. The latter is definitely the best source of second-hand pianos in London.


The truth is that there are only a handful of piano stores that can be referred to as “reliable”. The strong competition that exists between piano shops in London sometimes push retailers to adopt a rather predatorial approach to customers. Since 2010 WKMT welcomed more than 1500 piano students, nevertheless we never feel confident enough to recommend any piano shop in London, until now.


Markson’s Pianos is definitely a name to keep in mind if you are looking into buying your next piano. They founded their company around 1910 and they have been helping people to find the best piano for four generations. Why do we recommend them? Because they are truly committed to finding the best match between pianist and instrument. They provide pianos to the most famous concert halls in London, and most importantly they are deeply concerned about customer satisfaction. They have made themselves ready to help students in the best way possible, either by offering the most suitable piano at the best price possible or by organising a piano rental scheme.


We are also aware of the existence of many other piano shops like Yamaha Music London -the Yamaha shop in London-, Peregrine’s pianos, Morley pianos, Knightsbridge pianos, Jaques Samuel, Mark Goodwin Pianos, Robert Morley and Co. Ltd, Music Land (UK) Ltd. and Vale Pianos. We have interacted with Knightsbridge pianos by referring students for piano rentals. The service was very good too.


But in general, if you are looking to acquire the best possible advice when trying to purchase your first piano or if you want to make a wise decision when upgrading, our advice is to first ask your piano teacher and then go to Markson’s pianos.
