The benefit of exposing your children to music at an early age is well proven. Besides, it is always better to have some constructive learning activities for your kids, rather than let them while away their time in front of the television. A skill like music will always give them lifetime of pleasure. So if you are thinking of introducing your kids to the fascinating world of music, then here are some recommendations that will be a perfect musical keyboard for your child.
How Are These Different?
The standard electronic keyboard, usually used by adults and older children, has 61 keys of standard key sizes.
A mini size keyboard, on the other hand, differs in these two aspects.
Number of keys - Comes with 37, 44 keys
Size of keys - Slightly smaller than the standard key sizes
A mini keyboard is a great way of introducing your children to music, and to the fascinating world of electronic keyboards. The size of these electronic keyboards makes them ideal for kids, to play as well as to carry around.
Earlier Casio used to have just a 37-key mini keyboard but now they have introduced a 44-key mini keyboard which is getting quite popular. The advantage with the 44-key Casio mini keyboard is that since its almost 4 octaves, you can teach the kids to play with both the hands right from the beginning.
With 44 keys, and polyphony of 8 notes, you can play multiple notes together. You can play melody with the right and chords with the left. You don't get touch sensitive keys yet in the mini keyboard and may be its asking for a lot more in these keyboards. But you never know, with rapid changes in technology and cut throat competition, some day Casio may come out with touch sensitive keys in their mini keyboards. But as of today this is the best way to introduce your kids to music.
