Discover a selection of modern kids keyboard pianos, packed with built-in sounds and rhythms for your child to discover and play with. You'll find a wide variety of functions and more, with some kits featuring wired microphones and a built-in tutorial function that can teach piano lessons. You can even use these childrens keyboards with a USB drive, simply connect one loaded up with MP3 files to play along to any song.

Benefits of a Children's Keyboard

Kids keyboards are all built to a smaller scale, allowing small hands to experience the piano as fully grown hands would. Naturally, this leads to a smoother transition as they grow up and upgrade to a normal system with regularly spaced keys. Any kids keyboard piano will come with a standard degree of functionality, however, the affordable models we stock go above and beyond a usual keyboard system.

Some of these items come with their very own music sheet stand too, which is attachable to the keyboard itself. When primary school starts it’s very likely children will be ready to begin official music lessons so the sheet stand will assist if the tutor doesn’t have one spare. Starter instruments are a great idea for musical parents who may want to share their own musical experience with their sons and daughters.

Keyboards for children are not as expensive as many parents believe them to be, as you can see from their modest price. It’s important for aspiring young pianists to build finger strength through regular practise or play so try to engage them as much as you to keep things fun. Whether you’re singing or playing along with them on another instrument, it’s fun to practise together this way and this will no doubt be a fond memory in the future.

Getting the most from a kids keyboard piano

As mentioned, each of the keyboards is a starting point when it comes to learning and keeping up with the instrument. Your child will progressively get more comfortable playing the keys as they experiment with all of the different sound choices. Some of them have a record function too, which allows players to record what they have done and play it back.

This is mainly a fun tool to experiment with but as they get older they may listen to their playing critically and physically want to get better. Keyboard and piano teachers may request you to purchase an expensive keyboard with weighted keys but this is not immediately necessary. A keyboard like this one is suitable for beginners but after a few years, it may be an idea to upgrade to a touch-sensitive piano.

A couple of the keyboards have headphone inputs, meaning kids can play their instruments any time during the day or the night. The trick to learning any song no matter how trivial is muscle memory, repeatedly practising a song it the only way to perform it to the best of their ability. This makes the headphone inclusive options a lot more desirable as this allows a lot more time to practise without causing noise disturbances.

Portability options

While these keyboards can be connected to a mains output, they can also be powered via batteries, check the respective product for more details. This means you can set up the keys anywhere in your home as long as it is beside a suitable power source. However, those going the battery route can take these keyboards anywhere to keep youngsters busy when in the car, in the back garden or otherwise distanced from a plug socket.

The built-in stereo speakers on the keyboards are where the sounds of the notes are heard from, the childrens models may not allow further amplification. Despite this, the instruments can be played comfortably on laps or at a table, though playing while laying or sitting on the floor could get uncomfortable. Thousands of kids enjoy the portable aspect of keyboard every single year, many receiving this type of gift for Christmas.

Those with a smart device such as a tablet should research the program Synthesia on youtube, it is a program used to teach visual learners the piano. Some children don’t process spoken lessons as fast as others and nowadays children are much more visual in their learning. Synthesia shows players in real-time what notes are happening where, and for how long they are sustained for making it a lot easier for visual learners to translate.

Best songs to start learning the piano

There’s a whole lot of music out there in the world today and these days the list grows by the second. Before any of this is tackled it’s always a great idea to start your child off by learning some familiar songs, such as traditional nursery rhymes. Songs such as twinkle twinkle little star would be a good starting point as it is very simple to play and all fits between one scale. Once they have learned twinkle-twinkle, you can use this opportunity to surprise them with the fact that this is also the melody from the alphabet song.

Many piano tutors will begin teaching very simple songs such as Heart and Soul from the movie BIG with Tom Hanks. As players grow from a beginner to an intermediate player they are likely to be tasked with more difficult pieces of music. For example, the song Greensleeves, a traditional English folksong often rumoured to have been composed by King Henry VIII to impress Anne Boleyn.

Eventually and with enough practise over enough time your child or children will become more than proficient at the piano. This is if they want to do so, there’s a lot for kids to be interested in in the world today, so try not to overwhelm them with piano. Paced learning is helpful, but they may eventually feel like picking up a new instrument, luckily music theory related to the piano can be translated to another instrument easily.
