What makes the piano such a good instrument to learn? One reason is the logical way the keys are laid out, in the 300 years since the piano evolved from the harpsichord when Italian inventor Bartolomeo Cristofor was looking for an instrument with better dynamic response, it has changed very little. Another reason is the relatively inexpensive equipment needed to practice at home. Although some would say to go ahead and spend a lot of money at the beginning getting the best keyboard with weighted keys you can afford, in reality around $100 will purchase an electronic keyboard with 46 keys which is good enough to learn the basics on. As long as it has black and white keys and produces some semblance of piano-like tone a cheap electronic keyboard is perfectly suited to the beginner or child student, and with a headphone jack available on almost every model you can practice at your leisure in silence without having to feel the pressure of someone else listening in. Also, Piano sheet music is very easy to acquire, either online or at one of our many local music stores, and sometimes just finding the arrangements of songs that are right for you at your level can be the difference between being an avid piano student, and languishing in unmotivated neglect.
