Learn More About Keyboard

The first keyboard instrument was invented in ancient Greece around 300 B.C., but the first electrical keyboard like the ones we use today was designed in 1960s.

The piano is an acustic instrument which means that the sound is not produced digi-tally- you don’t have to plug it in the electricity! Keyboard is a digital instrument that doesn’t require strings or any other kind of a music box because the sound is produces “artificially”.

The keys on the piano are weighted, which means that they require a certain amount of pressure in order to make a sound. The keys on most of the keyboards are not we-ighted, which makes the feeling while playing a digital instrument slightly different.

Even though a professional keyboard should consist of 88 keys, some keyboards are made smaller, most of the time because it makes them more child-friendly. The very small ones are considered toys and not proper instruments.

The market for keyboards is very big and there is a lot of options. While choosing your instrument, it is always best to ask your coach for their professional advise that’s going to be based on your specific needs. The only thing to keep in mind- there should always be 88 keys!

Depending on your preffered musical style, you should choose keyboard in case classi-cal music is not something you wish to perform in the future. Pop&rock music are al-most always played exclusively on the keyboards, as they produce a completely diffe-rent sound that is in accordance with modern music.

Since the sound is produced artificially, no musical box is needed in the instrument. Pi-anos are big because they store a lot of strings, hammers and other tools necessary to produce a sound, whereas a keyboard works more or less like a computer.

Sinceit is manufactured more cost-effectively than pianos and do not require any work being done by a human hand, they are much more affordable. So, even the highest- quality keyboards are still more affordable than most of the acustic pianos.

Not necessarily. The volume can be adjusted on the keyboard. Amplifiers are used for playing in very big halls where only the highest volume of the instrument still wouldn’t cover the whole room

For complete beginners, any keyboard instrument will serve the purpose. However, since the keys on the keyboards are not weighted like they are on the piano, the technique for playing those instruments is going to be slightly different, once a certain level is reached.

Digital pianos are designed with the goal to imitate the sound and the feeling of an a-custic piano, whereas keyboards create much wider range of sounds and do aim to look or feel like an acustic piano, seeing as they are used for playing a completely diffe-rent musical style.

Stage-fright is a completely natural and normal process that everyone goes through before a performance- even professional singers experience it. Doing breathing excer-cises before performing, being prepared and confident can help reduce the pre-show anxiety

The difference between a synthesizer and a keyboard is that a synthesizer is able to create its own sound while the keyboard can not.

No. Keyboard is a general term used for every instrument that consists of keys (pianos, organs, digital pianos, synthesizers…). When people reffer to digital keyboards, in most cases they think of synthesizers, seeing how they are used in pop&rock music

Even though any size of the instrument can be used for very young beginners, very soon they need to be able to play the full range, which is 88 keys. For that reason, pra-ctising on a professional keyboard is strongly advised and encouraged.

You can practise on your piano, but you should always keep in mind that the keys are going to feel slightly different on a keyboard.

Playing short and fast notes requires practise and skill since the fingers first have to be trained to move independetly and fast. If you practise regularly, this process can happen pretty fast.

It is not required to play scales while learning the keyboard, but keep in mind that scales improve the technique, so playing them every once in a while could be beneficial.
