But, before we take a look at them…

Why choose a digital piano?

There’s 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
    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
    Importantly, almost all digital pianos come equipped with multiple piano sounds, harpsichords and electric organ sounds. They also never need tuning!
  5. Use a ‘click’ to develop your sense of rhythm
    Metronomes help develop your rhythmic and timekeeping skills. As an example, you can adjust the digital click to help you stay in ‘time’ and to master complex or advanced pieces of music.
