Summary: I got this for my daughter for her 11th birthday. She LOVES IT!! The whole family does actually, even my husband. There is almost always someone playing on it! It sounds amazing and the waiting feature with the lighted keys lets you play actual songs that sound beautiful. ;) Such a nice keyboard for a great price!
Summary: I have spent years away from piano since middle school. I bought this piano in hopes of it being a decent buy. I must say, it has completely enchanted the younger ones and has exceeded my expectations on sound quality. If there is one downside it is the dramatically over-simplified "Moonlight Sonata", aptly entitled "Moonshine" in the song bank. It's a great song but not appropriately set up in tutorial mode(It doesn't show the actual keys for a full song).
Summary: I purchased this model exclusively for the Yamaha digital sound reputation, grand piano inclusive, and for the lighted-key option. It's GREAT and so much fun to play! Other visual learners will understand the benefit of the lighted-key feature. A full 88-key instrument with this option would be an excellent addition to the Yamaha family. The modulation feature (ability to play multiple octaves within the 61 keys) is a good work-around.
Summary: My daughter really enjoys this keyboard, it more than met the expectations of her piano teacher. Loved the stand although there is nothing provided to secure the keyboard to the base. Our only issue was with the headphones. They lasted exactly 10 days. The thrill of not having to listen to my daughter practise was short lived. I wasn't altogether unprepared as there was another review on here stateing the same thing.
Summary: I love this keyboard as it is great for beginners. It's very easy to use all the functions and connect it to the iPad. I have always wanted one with light up keys but they are always very expensive. This one is well worth the price and I can see why it sells out so quickly. I am so glad I reserved it online when I saw it was in stock. Now I can learn to play without the extra expense of a tutor. I am very happy with it.
