What is a Keyboard
The keyboard is such a versatile instrument which has developed greatly over the past few years. Keyboards differ to pianos in various ways, normally having 5 octaves, up to 61 keys and hundreds of voices and rhythm patterns enabling you to create the sounds of a full band.
The majority of keyboards people tend to buy nowadays are made by Yamaha, Roland or Casio, all tend to have built in speakers unless you are looking at the very top of the range such as the Yamaha Tyros models which have a detachable speaker system.
Many of the newer models of keyboards around today also have microphone inputs on them enabling you to connect a vocal microphone so you are able to sing through them, this is great if you are having that home party. All keyboards tend to have a recording facility on them allowing you to record and build up a performance, many also have USB connectivity for connecting directly to PC or Mac to enable recording through a ‘DAW‘ Digital Audio Workstation such as ‘Cubase’ or ‘Logic’ ‘Studio One’ to name but a few.
For those wishing to learn to play an instrument quickly I personally would say you could learn how to play the keyboard quicker than the playing a piano (just my own opinion). The main difference in learning to play the keyboard instead of the piano is that with your left hand you learn to play chords whereas, with the piano your playing is much more complex as you learn to read and play what music is written in the bass clef on a piece of music which can be complex notation or chords.
Many students after they have been playing the keyboard for a while combine their keyboard lessons with singing lessons to become a better performer. If you wish to learn more about keyboard lessons in Nottingham then please contact me
