Benefits of Owning One
If you are looking for an electronic keyboard that would make learning easier for your kids…Have a look at the LK series!
The LK Keyboards from Casio have a built-in collection of songs that you could learn to play. You just need to choose a song you like and press the Start button.
That’s it! From that point onwards, the electronic keyboard will light up the key that you should be playing… And the best part is that it will wait and not move on to the next note unless you play the correct key/note.
Isn’t that great?
Most beginner keyboards come with a good set of built-in lessons to help you get started. The best is that there’s a recorded voice which tells you what fingers you should be using to play a key, when learning any song. I think that is quite innovative. These features make these keyboards quite beneficial to a learner. The top models in this series look quite solid and they have improved a lot over the years.
If you don’t want to spend a lot and just want to test the waters, you can go for the inexpensive but effective keyboard such as the casio lk-100. It doesn’t come with touch sensitive keys but then it is better than a mini keyboard and you get 61 keys.
If you want a keyboard with touch sensitive keys and better sound then consider the casio lk-280.
This one is also cool for another reason. The headphone box ships with a 1/8″ mini to 1/4″ adapter, which means, in addition to using the headphones with the keyboard (1/4″), you can even hear the output with an iPod etc. (1/8″ mini). Another great feature in this product!
Casio keyboards are known for providing full featured keyboards at much reasonable prices!
The Casio lighted keyboards include a Step-teaching function in which the songs are broken up into smaller phrases, which makes it easy for you to understand and recreate.
A good music keyboard for kids, and even beginners! You learn one phrase of music at a time, and when that phrase is mastered you move on to the next phrase. After completing phrase after phrase you will find that you have learned to play a whole song, one section at a time.
