Group piano (keyboard) programs
A piano is an acoustic instrument with weighted keys whereas a keyboard is an electric instrument (requiring a power source) with un-weighted (lighter) keys than a piano.
By contrast, a keyboard never needs to be tuned, and on a keyboard, you can change the sounds and instruments, which adds great variety to your practice (many keyboards have hundreds of sounds you can choose from).
Also, on a keyboard you can play along with backing tracks. Playing the keyboard is also good for encouraging very precise playing. Good reasons to learn keyboard - so join our courses.
