For many years music keyboards have been a very common gift for birthdays, Christmas and other events of a celebratory nature. Electronic Keyboards tend to be the first port of call for many children for this reason, experimenting with sounds while playing is very common behaviour. This is the best time to introduce a keyboard instrument to your home, both adults and children can benefit a great deal from built-in tuition technology.

Buy Music Keyboards

The keyboards we stock have a lot of functionality, different voicings that change the tonality of your notes and demo songs to play along with for fun and learning purposes. Much modern music stems from electronic keyboards in some way nowadays, used mainly as a base to formulate ideas for wider productions during rehearsal and practice. Great care has been taken in the design and build of all of our music keyboards to engage all players and maintain their enthusiasm.

Keyboards we supply are excellent for beginners and advanced players and while the brand names are not commonly recognised in the UK, this does not compromise the technology advances inside. With price points to suit every budget, there is some great value for money keyboard options to choose from here. Some of the keyboards even come with their very own stand, stool and headphones to promote proper posture and ensure comfortable performances.

If you want to play as part of a band or other musical group, you could use the keyboard to play an E note. This note is the basis for standard tuning and the majority of modern music, guitarists tuning to match your E note to their own means everybody will be in harmony. Harmony is important in music, one mistuned instrument can throw the song into disarray, luckily keyboards do not need tuning so you E note will stay an E note forever.

Upgrades to Electronic Keyboards

There are 54 note and 61 note keyboards available, each one steeped in features and some even supplied with a microphone for extra-musical experimentation. Some of the items have over 250 different accessible sounds to play with, including sounds which resemble multiple keyboard adjacent instruments. For example, the accordion, harpsichord, celesta, clavichord and organ, all of these sounds fit styles, meaning an accordion would suit folk music but perhaps a wedding organ may not.

Synthesised piano sounds have come a very long way, since the synth was first released to the public musicians have been experimenting and pushing the boundaries of what a synth is capable of. Modern synths provide users with a great deal of various instrumental options to perform music, meaning in most cases you can play basic drum patterns using just your keyboard. Check the product description details to see how many different sounds each keyboard gives you to use, the better the keyboard the more sounds are packed in.

Back in the 1990s, the sound quality of these synthesised sound emulations was very poor and while they served their purpose, much of the sonic qualities were lost. Thirty years later these sounds are far more accurate to their intended instrument and can be reproduced louder and much more clearly with the modern built-in speakers. Some options even have recording functionality, allowing you to play and listen back to your keyboard, this helps to improve your playing technique or for external recording new samples.

Travelling with a keyboard instrument

Many of the keyboard options we supply can be powered both by plugging into your mains outlets at home or via batteries. The number of batteries and which type does vary so be sure to check the description on the respective products for additional details in this area. Once you have batteries inserted into the keyboard itself you can take it wherever you please to play music on the go.

Some beginners shy away from this experience but seeking help from others is rarely a bad thing, if somebody you know plays the piano or keyboard seek out some advice. Better yet you can take your battery-mobilised keyboard along to where they practice their instrument and you can share tips and tricks together. Play the keyboard on car journeys or at the beach, wherever you feel comfortable playing, portable keyboards will perform equally well away from your home as they do inside it.

Simple user accessibility and portability are crucial factors for many keyboard players, which is the reason we have selected the range above. While each keyboard has its own volume interface, some keyboards come with their own headphone inputs to you can connect and practice late into the night without causing disturbances. This is also helpful if you decide to travel with your instrument, for instance, if you wanted to practise in a hotel room or other noise-sensitive place.

Getting creative with keyboards

Much of modern music is made up of various samples and loops, this means a specific section of an existing recording is used again in a different way. A well-known sample is the 2004 Eric Prydz song Call On Me, the repetitive vocal was sampled from the 1982 Steve Winwood song Valerie. Taking that one lyrical phrase and building an entire dance anthem around it was one of the years biggest success stories.

Anybody can create their own samples, though oftentimes musicians will wade through the internets many millions of different samples for hours at a time. Using a digital audio workstation or DAW such as Logic Pro X, it can be much faster to record one or two bars of a few chords. Then within your DAW, you can alter this recording in hundreds of ways, a common method is transposing the signal to a higher or lower pitch.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Music Keyboard?

Electronic music keyboards are musical instruments with a series of different sounding keys in the same layout as a piano. They are a popular choice for adults and young learners who would like to learn an instrument. A range of different sizes are available, beginning at 49 keys and going up to 88 keys, which is the same size as a traditional piano. Each keyboard has an in-built speaker and includes a variety of fun and useful features, for example; built-in sounds, demo songs, a headphone input, and a USB drive.

How Do You Learn To Play A Keyboard?

Music keyboards are very popular instruments and are seen as fairly easy to learn for both children and adults. However, time, dedication and patience are essential to learn to play, as with any instrument. There are many valuable resources out there to help you learn, including websites, apps, YouTube videos and books. We recommend that you start by learning simple songs and practice these to build muscle memory. Some of our keyboards have a useful record function, enabling you to hear your performances back to identify areas to work on.

How Many Keys Should A Music Keyboard Have?

The number of keys included on a music keyboard varies significantly between models to suit different needs. The size keyboard that you choose will depend on your preferences and also on the age of the learner. Smaller keyboards with 54 keys or less are ideal for children under 8 years old. Whereas, older children and adults often begin on a 61 keyboard. A traditional piano has 88 keys, so if your goal is to transition to an acoustic piano than an 88 key music keyboard would be ideal. We have a great selection of sizes, starting at 49 keys and going up to 88 keys, to suit all musicians.

Do Music Keyboards Go Out Of Tune?

No, music keyboards do not go out of tune. They use pre-recorded sounds for each note that you play. These will always sound the same unless the settings have been altered. In comparison, a traditional piano has strings that can lose tension, meaning that it needs to be tuned regularly.

What Types Of Music Keyboards Are Available?

A vast range of music keyboards are available, varying in size and features. The choice can feel overwhelming, so we have hand-selected a range of high-quality keyboards to suit different needs. Firstly, we have a selection ideal for young learners, with many models built to a smaller scale to suit little hands. Next, we have a range that is full of useful features, designed for beginners and players of various levels. Lastly, there are digital pianos, which produce an authentic piano sound and include weighted keys for a realistic piano touch. The included features differ between keyboards, with some including useful extras such as record mode, a wired microphone, headphone input, USB drive and keyboard stickers. For help finding the best keyboard for your needs, please get in touch with our expert team.

What Is The Difference Between A Music Keyboard And Digital Piano?

The main difference between a digital piano and a keyboard is that a digital piano is designed to create an authentic piano playing experience. Therefore it includes weighted keys to produce a realistic piano feel, and it is typically the same length as an acoustic piano, with 88 keys. In comparison, music keyboards come in a range of sizes, starting at 49 keys and going up to 88 keys. They are also more likely to include a greater range of built-in sounds and effects.

Can You Learn The Piano On A Music Keyboard?

Yes, you can learn how to play the piano by practicing on a music keyboard, and this is a popular choice as keyboards are cheaper and more portable. The key layout of both is identical, and you use the same hand and finger movements. Therefore, any songs that you learn on the keyboard could also be played on a piano. However, you may need to adjust to a different key width and pressure, as a piano has greater resistance. Some keyboards include weighted keys to produce a more authentic piano playing experience.
