Keyboards, digital Pianos and Pianos
How do I choose?
The question as to whether to choose a Keyboard, Digital Piano or a real
Piano, depends on many factors. To start with there are the important
factors like your budget, storage space and your childs stage of
progress. Also remember that a real piano requires regular tuning and
maintenance while keyboards and digital pianos are always in tune.
Additionally you might want to consider the following factors:
- If you are looking at keyboards, get one that has 61 keys (a piano has 88).
- Get a keyboard that has full size keys so that your child will develop the
correct hand stretch and easily swap to a real piano at their piano
- Check if the keyboard has a built-in metronome and headphone socket.
- Keyboards may also have optional touch response so that it can be played loud
or soft depending on how firmly the keys are pressed.
- Digital Pianos: In addition to the keyboard features above, Digital Pianos can have
weighted keys so that they match the feel of a piano, and also have more realistic piano sounds.
