Myth: You can?t learn to play the piano well because you don?t have a real piano at home, only a keyboard.
Fact: Piano lessons can be taken on a keyboard, as long as the student is dedicated. Learning to play the piano well is difficult whether you?re learning on the keyboard or piano. Now days, keyboards can function very similar to a piano. With weighted keys and built in speakers, the student will get the feel for how an actual piano would sound.
Keyboards actually have some advantages over traditional pianos:
? They never go out of tune
? They have headphone capability so practicing in an apartment where you can?t be noisy would be possible
? They take up less space and are portable
? They can easy be integrated with a computer for digital remixes and sound
Most students who only have a keyboard at home find ways to balance their practice time on their keyboard and a real piano. Pianists can usually practice on pianos at school, church, family or friends? houses etc. There are many ways to have access to a real piano! If you are concerned about learning to play on a keyboard, look for used pianos that you can buy and tune for relatively cheap.
