Casio LK-230 Personal Keyboard Premium Package
The Casio LK-230 Personal Keyboard is the perfect model for a beginning piano player. At only 61 keys, it is less bulky than a full size keyboard, and weighs less than 24 pounds. This makes it very easy to move the keyboard from one place to another. This digital keyboard comes with all the accessories: Power supply, stand, and headphones.
The Casio LK-230 Keyboard is has a state of the art Step-Up music education system.
I used the Step-Up system when I first learned to play the piano, and it really helped me visualize each note. This learning tool will play a demo song, and each time a note is supposed to be pressed, it will light up the proper key on the keyboard. Each step has different levels of difficulty, so once you master step one, you can move on to step two, and try and incorporate the left hand.

After doing some extensive research on this digital keyboard, most of the reviews were very positive. The only negative complaints expressed were that the keys would sometimes make a slight noise when pressing them down, and the headphones were not the best of quality. As you can imagine, this can be expected with any entry level keyboard. The reviews on the Step-Up learning system were very encouraging, and people seemed to really like the tutorials. Amazon.com has the keyboard rated 4.7 out of 5 stars.
Our research did turn up a couple of negative reviews, but overall most of the comments were very positive. I would not recommend this keyboard for seasoned piano player, but it is a great purchase for a beginning pianist. For the price this is a great buy, and would be a great selection to learn to play the piano on.
