Tips To Choosing The Right Digital Piano
When choosing a digital piano or keyboard, budget is often an important factor. Almost all digital pianos have 88 keys, and have all of the preferred benefits and features. A local piano technician or piano tuner can provide valuable advice, and can often at times assist when considering purchasing a second-hand instrument. When choosing an electronic keyboard, there are certain features to look for. The more features, the more the cost. Use the following guidelines:
(in order of importance)
•Minimum of 61 regular-sized keys
•If affordable, an 88-key digital piano or keyboard would be ideal
•A sustain pedal (not a sustain ‘button’)
•Touch sensitive keys
Obviously there are numerous other features, many of which come as ‘standard’ on many of today’s modern instruments. These, while potentially interesting and/or beneficial, are not a necessary part of a successful Simply Music experience.
If you do not have an instrument, and are unable to afford one,you may find that a friend, relative or neighbor who has an instrument, is often willing to allow you to practice on theirs. In addition, many churches and community service groups often have a piano that is somewhat accessible.
