Keyboard as a fun-cool-toys

The difficulty teaching something to children is to get their passion and attention. You should search keyboard that can attract their attention (funky colour, blinking tuts, colour screen etc).

The keyboard should have internal speaker, so you don't need to set external sound system.

And another suggestion :
You should ask to the seller "How can I restore the factory setting of the keyboard ?" (if the keyboard is programmable.)

When I was a teenager, I had a Korg M1 keyboard (it is programmable) and one of my young brother's friend, accidentally, delete one of the sound ! (And I don't know how to get it back !)

As you know, a child, 5 years-old, usually explore all the possibilities of something (including keyboard). And they can delete the data or important setting of a pro-keyboard.

When you buy keyboard, don't forget to buy a good and firm keyboard stand. Usually, a cheap keyboard stand is unstable (and it is dangerous for children if the keyboard falls from the stand).

Have a nice keyboard learning !
