Electronic keyboards are one of the great inventions of the 20th century. An electronic keyboard is basically a piano keyboard that operates with the use of electronic circuits and electricity. There are also many advantages to using an electronic keyboard over a traditional acoustic piano. Size and weight is an obvious advantage, unlike an upright piano a keyboard can be carried under you arm and they don’t take up a lot of room.

Cost is another consideration when buying a piano or keyboard. Electronic keyboards can be bought second hand for sometimes unbelievably low prices. The fact is that many people that want to start learning now have the opportunity and if you want to learn the piano, start with a keyboard first, if you take to it then buy a more expensive digital piano, and if you take to that, you could eventually progress to a grand piano, if you have the room.

The electronic keyboard is the perfect choice for beginners because it gives you the start you need for next to nothing outlay, plus you can download piano and keyboard courses from various internet sites, again for a fraction of the cost of lessons with a teacher.

So if you are on the fence and you want to learn to play a keyboard instrument, now’s you chance, buy a used keyboard and a keyboard or piano lesson course and start learning today.

There are literally hundreds of electronic music keyboards for sale on auction sites such as eBay and if you are in the market for a new or second-hand digital keyboard, there are some cracking deals available.

Before you purchase your first keyboard, you should familiarise yourself with some features you will find useful as a learner.

Velocity Sensitive Keyboard

Using a velocity sensitive keyboard means you can add a bit of light and shade to your playing. By adjusting the pressure you apply to the keys will govern whether the sound is loud or soft. Force down firm and the sound is loud, press gently and the sound is low.

Full Size Keys

Again, most ultramodern portable keyboards nowadays possess full size piano keys. Some older electronic piano keyboards may have half size keys. These were introduced to help children with tiny fingers to play the keyboard more effectively. This of course is rubbish and provides no useful help to learning whatever and I recommend you avoid these types of keyboards.

X Frame Keyboard Stand

This is more of an extra instead of a feature but still worth a mention here. When you buy your keyboard, you need somewhere to put it. Now, you can place it on your dinning table or your lap or on the floor but believe me you will soon get fed up of keep putting up and putting away your keyboard. So do yourself a favour and buy a stand, they are not expensive and you can leave your keyboard in one place.

There are a good deal more features available on new keyboards, such as keyboard size, types of sounds and rhythms, built in loud speakers, chord learning system and much more. The fact is a complete novice will have more than enough, feature wise to start learning to play the keyboard.
