I am beginning to learn piano and keyboard from a friend. Just started because I have been having interest in pianos since I was young. Never got the chance to own one, but just recently a few of my more musically inclined(Or simply they study music and stuffs) started teaching me some basics about the charts, tao geys and stuffs. Was considering between a piano and a keyboard, decided on a keyboard for it taking lesser space constrains and being more portable(.G. can bring over to friend's place to play).

Got any beginner model to start out with? Not much of a budget either, not too familiar with keyboard budgets, beginner should lie around 300-? No idea, would love some help. =)

you looking for a 61 key or a 88 keys version?the price will differ a lot depending on the number of key as the range differ too.. and also look out for casio keyboard...can get it 2nd hand at about $200 for a 61 keys with X stand.song books and so on...why not look for a 2nd hand or only want a first hand?yamaha at plaza sing you might want to check out too..basically i find the more function the keyboard have,the more expensive they are but if you are gg to just play play for a beginner and gg to change to a 88 keys or normal piano when u can play better...don't waste your $$$ for a 61 keys high end one with multi tones,a lot of polyphony and so on...waste of the $$$ when u buy and sell just like audio item,u buy $600 can only sell let say $350? Undecided Wink

61 and 88 keys, whats the difference? Lesser octaves? But why 61? Its still lesser than a standard piano right?

Hmmm I don't mind 2nd hand actually but don't know what to start with.
