Which piano should I buy? - CHECK OUT OUR MUSIC SHOP
Here are some models that we have tested. The Yamaha EZ220 is a good one to consider. Once you know your child is interested in playing piano long term, it’s worth buying an upright with weighted keys which are more expensive. Digital Keyboards generally have much lighter keys than a normal piano and can be smaller. They may have a number of different instruments and sounds to experiment with. Keyboard stands can come as part of special offers. They can be quite flimsy and fragile, so check if they are sturdy or use a table instead. Here are several options. Do browse online as prices vary.
1. Yamaha EZ220. (the one we use in class)
This keyboard is quite sturdy. (The stand is not). It has lessons built in and the keys light up red so you can follow pre-set songs which is great when kids or adults are learning to play. It has an app that acts as a page turner for sheet music. Casio make similar models too so it's worth exploring what is available and try them out.
2. The Yamaha Clavinova range ( weighted keys - great sound)
These vary quite considerably so shop around and try them out. If you are considering taking up piano, one of these would be great and will last pretty much forever.
3. A less expensive option is Casio SA-46. (more for fun)
We love this one! You can put batteries in it and take it away for a weekend.
(An adapter is not included). It has drum samples as well as fun songs and sounds. We still like messing about with this keyboard - it's just too much fun!
