Over the Casio Model
by: Ido Ronen from www.piano-play-it.com

Roland & Yamaha are considered to be the best electric pianos. Most of the performers use them because their piano sound is excellent, their touch is great, and they have many professional features too.

However, your question is too general; what model of Casio do you have? What are your needs? etc.

You will find many people who say ?"Casio is only for beginners. If you want a professional instrument ? buy Yamaha or Roland". I think they are wrong. I do prefer Yamaha, but Casio has many advanced professional models too.

Casio have simple and cheap keyboards for beginners with features that are adapted for children such as-
  • A bank of many popular songs.
  • Lighted keys that help you to learn songs by built in lessons.
  • Many rhythm patterns and many different tones that can fascinate children (and adults!) for hours.

    Some of my students have a simple keyboard of Casio. It is a great instrument to start with. It is not expensive, and has many benefits.

    I recommend after a while they buy an acoustic piano because there is no substitute for the real thing.

    If you cannot have a piano at home, or you want a more advanced electric piano for performances, or for connecting to the computer, then you will have to do some research, and to see what instrument meets your needs.

    There are many parameters to be considered when choosing the right instrument for you. You may find that Casio, like Roland & Yamaha, have many excellent instruments. It all depends on the specific model, your needs and the amount of money you are willing to invest.
    Read this article to help you understand your exact needs.

    Good Luck,

  • Roland and Yamaha

    I've heard that Roland & Yamaha are the best.
    Does anyone know about Casio?

    I love the Yamaha!
    by: karen

    you are asking about an electric piano or an acoustic one?

    I just took a free piano workshop and the instructor said a Yamaha is the best. He played it and it sounded fabulous.
