The popularity of today’s digital keyboards is soaring, and it’s no wonder. While piano players often prefer the sound quality of an acoustic piano, the popularity of acoustic pianos is impacted by the need for regular tuning and maintenance, and the fact that their size dominates any room, often taking four hefty guys to move it. Meanwhile digital keyboards are much lighter and mobile and have a great deal of versatility in sounds and programs, all at very affordable price points for most families.

An at-home keyboard is the best way to accomplish this.
