Don’t let your equipment hold you back! Nothing makes kids want to practice like being able to hear their sound on a quality instrument, and nothing makes parents happier than having an instrument in the home that sounds great but is lightweight, portable, takes up a fraction of the space as Aunt Matilda’s old acoustic piano, and never goes out of tune.
We know you are on a budget so here are a number of options you can choose from for your one stop creative connection!
All keyboards come with stand, music rest and sustain pedal. Benches are also available. Details available upon request.
