Choosing the right Piano...
In order to succeed at learning the piano, students simply need to practice daily. Choosing the appropriate instrument is an important decision. As a student's abilities improve over time, likewise, they will need to play on a better instrument that will better reflect their abilities and keep up with their technical demands.
Just getting started? An inexpensive keyboard with built-in speakers will work for the first 6-12 months. You will also need a keyboard stand, a sustain pedal, and a music stand.
By the time a student reaches Level 2, you will want to upgrade to a working acoustic (traditional) piano or a full sized decent quality digital piano with built in speakers, pedals, music rack, with weighted piano keys. Students will also need a metronome by this time.
Students that reach Level 5 and up should upgrade to a good quality professional vertical (upright) piano (48-52 inch) or a good quality grand piano (5'8" or longer).
