"Keyboards are welcome" says Weiss
-- Think you need a piano to take piano lessons? Most would automatically assume this to be the case. But the price of a piano can be exorbitant. And for the average family or person, that price is just too much.
Enter the keyboard. Keyboards have revolutionized the learning of piano because of their low price. Today, the sound is so good a novice ear would have a hard time telling the difference between a Steinway or the digitally produced tones of an electronic keyboard. Or so says piano teacher Edward Weiss.
Weiss teaches a style of piano called ’New Age’ and says a piano is not necessary to take his online course. Mr. Weiss explains why…
“ My approach uses chords in both hands. A 61 key keyboard is more than enough to learn this technique. Also, I know many students can’t afford a piano. Although a real piano is always preferable, it’s not always practical. A beginning keyboard instrument can be purchased for under $150 which produces realistic piano sounds. This is all one needs to begin lessons on.”Weiss even uses a digital piano for his course. When asked about it, Weiss comments…
“I’ve played a concert hall Steinway and every piano in between. My digital piano gives me everything I want without the extraordinary price tag required to get that grand piano sound. I’ve never had a problem with playing a digital and the best part is, it’s always in tune.”
