Keyboards for learners are a frequently bought gift for Christmas, birthdays and other generosity-driven events that occur over the calendar year. Beginner keyboards tend to be the jumping-off point for thousands of children due to these gifts, incorporating sound during playtime is very common behaviour. Encouraging the use of an electronic keyboard for beginners promotes hand-eye coordination and creativity early on in life.

Buy Beginner Keyboards

The keyboards we stock have many ways for new players to develop, with various voicings that alter the tone of the notes played and preloaded songs to play along too. Much of today's music is rooted in keyboards for learners, many artists have used a starter keyboard to develop their music ideas at some stage in their careers. A lot of attention has been given in the building and design stage of all of our electronic keyboards for beginners to keep new players interested and enhance lesson effectiveness.

The electronic keyboards that we provide are excellent for all new players, the brand names may not be immediately recognisable in the United Kingdom but the tech within remains uncompromised. With excellent value prices suiting all budgets, learning to play this instrument has never been as easily accessible, although it may take a while to master it. Some beginner keyboards come packaged with a stand, stool, music sheet and headphones, this ensures correct posture for comfortable rehearsal.

Eventually, beginners are likely to get to a stage where they would like to play with other musicians that they know. Performing with others really is great fun and can be a superb help while learning the musical nuances of the keyboard. The more you rehearse your parts together the better you will play those parts if you ever play a live show

Electronic keyboards for beginners

There are 61 note and 54 note keyboards available, each has dozens of features and some are supplied with a wired microphone for additional sound-based play. Some items contain over 250 sounds to get to know and perform with, inclusive of sounds that resemble keyboard-based instruments. For example, the clavichord, organ, harpsichord and celesta, these sounds can help emulate certain stylistic feels, if a song has a Brazilian samba style then select a Latin piano sound.

We recommend considering the keyboards packaged with a stool and stand for comfortable play while learning, these kits complete the keyboard experience and as mentioned, improve posture and enhance technique. Some of the keyboards have all of this and some headphones thrown in too, this headphone input on the keyboard allows late-night rehearsal with no noise. It is worth remembering that these keyboards are not built to be toys and are specifically for beginner usage

Learning any instrument takes hard work, dedication and most of all patience so be prepared put in a fair bit of your time to learning and studying different keyboard practises. Beginners may occasionally feel overwhelmed and that is OK, some websites teach you exactly how to play the keyboard and sometimes there is also a slow playback function. This will also change the speed of the sound output giving you a larger scope to identify and improve the parts that give you any trouble.

Keyboards for learners

As mentioned, each of the keyboards is a starting point when it comes to learning and keeping up with the instrument. As beginners get comfortable experimenting with the many different sound options they can use they can familiarise themselves with the record function. This allows players to record what they have played and listen back to pick up on sections where the performance could be better.

Hiring a professional keyboard or piano teacher can be unnecessary, with most conducting their lessons online in the modern day. Good tutoring comes from having the teacher there with you watching your every technique, so it is just as easy to find free online lessons. While it may be a good idea to upgrade to a touch-sensitive piano in a few years' time, these keyboards will help you to learn the basics

The trick to learning any song is muscle memory, repeatedly practising a song is essentially the only way to perform it to the best of your ability. This does sound monotonous, but the old saying practise makes perfect couldn’t be more true when it comes to the keyboard. This makes the headphone-friendly options a much better choice as this allows for more time to rehearse without making noise.

Best songs to start learning the keyboard

There is a lot of simplistic songs that can be played by beginners once they have learned their main chords. In actual fact, there exists a four-chord structure that fits a huge amount of modern pop music, so you could start there. This chord structure is as follows E - B - C# Minor - A, research how to play the C sharp minor chord before doing an internet search for the 4 chord song by the axis of awesome

This act uses the chords to highlight just how often this structure is used across many different genres of music. You can get inspiration from these chords and if you are a vocalist, sing along to your own keyboard playing. Doing two things at once can be difficult at the best of times, but with practise, we are confident you can make it happen.

Beginners remember, practise makes perfect and you will fail a lot but it is all necessary to achieve your development goals as a musician. Nobody should be rushing you to get better, so whenever possible take your time and grow at your own pace.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Is The Best Keyboard For Beginners?

A beginner keyboard is a great way to start learning to play the piano. We have carefully chosen a selection of reliable and affordable keyboards ideal for beginners. Our range includes high-quality brands such as Max Music, Academy of Music and Bontempi, and each contains many useful features. We also provide a variety of size keyboards to suit all learners. For young learners we recommend a 49 or 54 key model, while adults often start with 61 keys.

What Size Keyboard Should A Beginner Use?

The size keyboard needed for a beginner depends on the learner's age and preferences. We offer a range of sizes to suit all, beginning at 49 keys and going up to a full-size 88 key model. For a child under 8 we suggest a smaller keyboard with 54 keys or less. While older children and adults often start with a 61 key keyboard. If your goal is to one day play a traditional piano a full 88 key model is best.

Is It Easy To Learn The Keyboard?

Learning the keyboard requires dedication and patience. Time must be dedicated to learning, and practising songs will build muscle memory, improving performance. Start by learning simple songs and grow at your own pace. There is much support out there, including websites and apps to assist learning. Some of our keyboards include a record function, so you can listen to your performance and identify areas to improve on.

How Much Should A Beginner Spend On A Keyboard?

A beginner keyboard should not cost a lot. However the price you pay will depend on the functions required. Our range of beginner keyboards are affordable and begin at approximately £40, with the price increasing for models with more features, for instance those including a stand, stool and microphone. It makes sense to start with an affordable keyboard to master the basics, and to upgrade to a more expensive digital piano in the future.

Can You Learn Piano On An Electric Keyboard?

Yes, you can certainly learn piano on an electric keyboard. The hand and finger movements used are the same and the key arrangement is identical. As a result songs learnt on a keyboard can be played on a piano. You just need to adjust to a different pressure and key width. Beginners often start with a keyboard as they are portable and more affordable. Then later they upgrade to a weighted keyboard or piano.

How Do I Choose A Piano Keyboard?

To choose a piano keyboard first consider the ideal size. Young learners suit a 49 or 54 key model, while adults often start with 61 keys. Those wishing to upgrade later to a traditional piano may choose a full-size 88 key model. Also consider the functions required and whether a music sheet/keyboard stand is needed. Keyboards can include useful features such as; a wired microphone, record mode, headphone input, USB drive and keyboard stickers.
