There was a day when being a student of the piano meant owning an acoustic instrument. That's not the case anymore. Modern digital pianos look, feel and sound much like their acoustic counterparts. Some are even built in grand piano cases.
Modern digital pianos range from instruments that have a dozen or so sounds to instruments that have more than a thousand; they don't require tuning and have headphone jacks for silent practice. Some have actual wooden piano keys and wooden soundboards. Some play back MIDI or audio files while you play along, even allowing you to change the tempo or key. On some, you can record your own audio and save it to a USB flash drive to share with others! (We'd encourage you to explore the Kawai, Roland and Yamaha web sites for more details about some of these ideas.)
We also stock 61, 76 and 88-note portable keyboards with full-size, velocity-sensitive keys. These are great instruments for beginner musicians at an affordable price.
If you need a portable keyboard, you'll also need a keyboard stand, perhaps a bench or an AC adapter. We stock the accessories you'll need for all the keyboards we sell.
We have the best selection of electronic keyboard instruments and accessories in Kansas, certainly in Wichita. We hope you’ll stop by our store to see and hear for yourself.
Need some one-on-one instruction? We can help with that too - we offer private piano lessons six days a week!
" I want to let you know how much M___ loves her voice lessons. Her teacher is absolutely PHENOMENAL! !! She looks forward to her lessons and is so excited about the music she is working on. Every week she tells me how thankful she is to have a teacher who really gets her. Many thanks..."
"You'll find that it's very relaxed, easy, non-threatening and you'll have a good time. I've experienced another place or two, and they don't come close to comparing." Joe, who takes private guitar lessons.
"I have really enjoyed learning piano at the Academy. My teachers there have been patient with me, and I do feel that I have learned something new each time I finish a lesson. It has been a great experience and I look forward to learning more."
"I think I was looking for this, and I think I was looking for it for a long time. Instead of listening to music, now I can make some music."
"I really enjoy playing. This has been quite an accomplishment for me. I never had any music before and now I can play."
"I thought, 'I don't know if I'll ever be able to play these.' But after the first lesson and the second lesson and the third lesson, I thought, 'I think I like this!' I saw the ad in the paper and decided to come down here. It's the best decision I ever made."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for the new keyboard! It is AWESOME. However, I may never get anything done because it is so much fun to play. I found the perfect combination of piano and strings with the duet setting and I played it for my husband. It's one of his favorite songs and it made him cry..."
"If you want to do it, don't be afraid – just do it. And have fun with it. When I sit down and play the piano, I forget everything else."
"I highly recommend learning to play. No, you are NOT too old to learn! You will find it very enjoyable and therapeutic."
