My daughter started to play keyboard at school, and mithered me to buy her one to play at home. I expected them to cost an arm and a leg, so was pleased to find this. My daughter's happy, and so am I. If you want to start playing, this is perfect.
Good to learn on

I wanted to start lessons but didn’t want to spend too much on a keyboard. I was recommended the PSRE series of keyboards by the shop assistant and this one fit my budget.
A few lessons in and I have to say I’m impressed with how the keyboard sounds for the money. There are loads of sounds to choose from but I stick with the grand piano, though I do use the chorus and reverb effects as it makes it sound even better. It’s also useful having a headphone socket so I can practice whenever I like.
The keyboard can looking a bit daunting when you first unbox it but is very easy to use and I’m intending to use the included teaching aids after a few more lessons. Overall I am very pleased and would recommend it for any learner.

As there is only one headphone socket (large size) you may want to consider ordering headphone splitters: these will allow you to connect two pairs of headphones to each keyboard. The use of a flexible splitter, rather than the solid type, removes some of the strain that two headphone plugs might place on the keyboard's socket.
