HOW TO CHOOSE A PIANO THAT IS PERFECT FOR YOU
If you feel that music is your passion and started taking piano lessons then definitely you'll need the piano to practice.
The most important features:
1. a weighted 88 keys piano (electronic)
2. a jack for headset
3. a digital piano with built-in speakers (preferable).
If you have already got high quality speakers, you can save on it and take the piano without built-in speakers. You can use any headphones for your everyday practice. Keep in mind, whenever you want to play loud, you have to plug-in your own speakers.
Almost all electro pianos today have a jack for the headphones but not all instruments have speakers.
4. I would recommend you to take Yamaha since the sound of Yamaha’s instruments is the closest to real acoustic grand pianos.
5. Speaking about a budget version of piano for beginners. I would advise you something like the instruments shown on https://youtu.be/Xigjr-eE8nc.
Yamaha P-45 is more than enough

Some people may not agree with me and decide to go for Korg or Casio pianos. It is their choice. I find that these instruments have a kind of specific metallic effect, which sounds unnatural. It is always advisable to listen to the voice of the instrument. The only piano of today that gives a natural sound of an acoustic grand piano is Yamaha. It is very good for any buyers, both for beginners and professionals.
As for me, I prefer to buy at Thomann. You can ask me why? Thomann is the largest music retailer in Europe. It offers free shipping on orders above 49 €, 3-years their own Thomann warranty (normally it's only 1 year) and 30 days no questions money-back guarantee. What is particularly remarkable, it also offers a choice of available bundles, such as, a piano and a home-style stand, or a cover and a pedal, and other accessories. It makes the prices fantastically attractive! Sometimes (it depends on the chosen bundle), you can buy it at a surprising price – the price of the instrument, not more.
