It can be a bit of a challenge finding a great digital piano for under $1500 when you’re first starting out. Roland have an excellent reputation for building quality instruments and they have a few exceptional digital pianos in this price range.

But, before we take a look at them…

Why choose a digital piano?

There is a lot of information online about the advantages of learning on a digital piano. Here are 5 key benefits that may help you decide if a digital piano is right for you:

  1. Practice (quietly) with headphones
    Importantly, digital pianos let you play anytime without disturbing your family and neighbours.
  2. Record and listen to your own performance
    There is no better way to improve your playing than to record your performances and then listening back to them.
  3. Use APPs to improve your playing ability
    There are countless apps available that are designed to help you learn to play piano, no matter what level you are playing at!
  4. Play with different sounds to keep practice interesting
    Almost all digital pianos come equipped with multiple piano sounds, harpsichords and electric organ sounds and even more,  they never need tuning!
  5. Use a ‘click’ to develop your sense of rhythm
    Metronomes help develop your rhythmic and timekeeping skills. Adjust the digital click to help you stay in ‘time’ and also to master complex or advanced pieces of music.
