Want to buy the perfect starter digital piano?
Most of our piano teachers at Brooklyn Music Factory use the Casio Privia, which we recommend for its sound, feel, affordability and portability. Depending on your budget you could hold off on the pedal or bench, but a stand is definitely necessary.
Another option is to get the stand and pedals all built in to a nice piece of furniture. This is the closest to a real piano set up & for just a few hundred bucks more, it could absolutely be worth it: Casio Privia with Stand & Pedals
An adjustable bench and keyboard stand is useful, particularly for younger students that need to sit up higher to reach the keys. Check this one out: Adjustable Bench + Stand Package
Are you not quite ready to invest in a full, 88 key instrument? Is your child a young beginner who is unsure of their future with the piano? Here is a good starter keyboard: Buy This One
It’s only 61 keys, under ten pounds and less than half the prince – you will need to replace this with a full size instrument in about 2-3 years but this is a great place to start for the wary parent, it has great feel, sound and is super satisfying to play.
We purchase 99% of our equipment from Zzounds.com and they offer free ground shipping. You will receive it within a day or two using UPS Ground because their warehouse is in NJ.
