What is the difference between a keyboard, a synthesizer and a digital piano?

A keyboard is usually an instrument with accompaniment automation, in most cases equipped with a 5-octave synthesizer mechanism, although there are instruments with a higher octave weight or a hammer mechanism. In most cases, there is no way to create your own tones.

Instruments that do not have accompaniment automation are called synthesizers, although they can be drum bases, they can be batteries, and the sound is produced synthetically (although nowadays they still work mostly with sound samples). The point is that there are plenty of tones available to the user, and the detail-rich parameterizability of these tones is also given. So we can practically produce our own tones from the “factory” tones, these can be saved. In addition, they have a number of features that make stage music, composing, and home use easier and more exciting. The main feature of the digital piano is that it has 88 keys in each case and has a hammer mechanism.

The piano sound of an instrument is a multitude of sound samples taken from acoustic (traditional) pianos. The quality of the sound depends on how detailed the sound sample is, how many layers, and in what dynamic range you can work. In digital pianos, the main emphasis is on the piano function, all other technical knowledge is only ancillary in nature. Eg: metronome, recording function, other tones. Of course, there are digital pianos that also incorporate very serious accompaniment automation, but that makes the instrument a great digital piano, not called a keyboard. In terms of their structure, they can be “cabinet” for a fixed place (eg apartment, school), similar to an acoustic piano or piano, or they can be “portable” so that musicians can take them to rehearsals and performances. These types are called stage piano or “StagePiano”.

What instrument should I choose for piano learning?

One of the main foundations of playing the piano is good tilting technique. If one wants to learn to play the piano, it is essential to start developing this technique with the help of a teacher at the beginning of the learning. However, this is only possible with hammer mechanics. Why?

Because an instrument with a synthesizer mechanism is much easier to tilt, so the instrument responds to our movements completely differently than a piano. You can’t play it as gently as you do on a piano. If a person begins his studies with such an instrument, the proper tilting technique is not developed, the micromotor movements of the fingers are poorly fixed in the brain, and we can eradicate it later with about five times as much energy and attention as if we had learned good mechanics right away. This is especially important for children whose hands are still growing and developing. Their hands develop as they are subjected to stress. They learn very quickly, so the bad is also fixed quickly, which will make you have no sense of success and may make you feel like playing the piano.

So let’s not rush into learning to play the piano, first always think about what exactly we want, choose an instrument that is right for us with the help of experts, or consult with your future piano teacher. The general experience is that without the presence of a hammer mechanic instrument, children are not admitted to the music school for piano lessons. Of course, there are also many varieties of digital pianos, in several price categories. You can try these instruments in our shop, our expert colleagues will help everyone find the most suitable one.
