Piano sales – choosing a digital piano for a beginner

24th March 2015

If you’re new to piano playing and want to choose a digital piano for a beginner then there are plenty of options on the market. Here is a quick guide on what to look out for:

Quality brand – like all things in life you tend to get what you pay for and digital pianos are no different. As a beginner you want to ensure that your piano playing experience is a good one so it pays to go for a brand that is well known and trusted. Brands such as Yamaha, Kawai and Kemble have been making digital pianos for many years and you know that you’re getting quality. Many of their digital pianos are ideal for beginners and learning on a traditional 88 key piano is often the best way to learn and hone your playing skills.

Why 88 Keys? – digital pianos with 88 keys allow you to switch from acoustic to digital with ease and you won’t have to relearn anything. Many 88 key digital pianos also have split-keyboard modes and these are great if someone is teaching you how to play. Split-keyboards allow the teacher and the pupil to play together and this accelerates the learning process.

Variety – as a beginner you want to choose a digital piano that gives you plenty of different sound options so that you can experiment with your style and create different musical pieces. Having the ability to play along with songs that you like will also enhance your learning experience.

Headphones and recording – digital pianos that give you the option to record and playback your music will enable you to spot your mistakes and help you to improve. Headphones will also enable you to play your music privately so that nobody else is disturbed while you are trying to learn new pieces.

If you are a beginner and want to find a digital piano that suits your requirements then please get in touch. We would be happy to advise you.
