Keyboard for beginner

My 7 year old daughter wants to learn to play piano, and I am going to buy her a keyboard. We need a basic keyboard with weighted keys. No need for sequencing or mixing, etc. Just piano playing. Which do you recommend? Thanks

Top three basic digital piano picks for beginners.
by: Mantius


I won't tell you exactly what to get, but I can make a few suggestions. The first three keyboards I mention below all come with weighted keys and are good for piano practice. They each sell for about $600 at leading online musical instrument retailers.

1. My top pick for your daughter would have to be the Yamaha P70 digital piano. For the price, this is in my opinion, the best.

2. The Casio AP24 digital piano is another option.

3. Also, you can take a look at the Casio PX310 Privia.

If you're on a very tight budget, you can consider the Casio PX110 Privia digital piano. It sells for about $500 online. But it is no where in the class of the Yamaha P70, Casio PX310 Privia or Casio AP24.

If I were you, I'd probably buy the Yamaha P70. The ultimate choice is yours.
