The founder and artistic director of New York Piano School, which provides students of all ages and levels with private piano lessons throughout New York City and on Long Island, suggests the best type of keyboard for your child should you not have space or are not ready to make an investment in an upright piano.
The type of piano you want to get depends on whether you want your child to take piano lessons as an after-school program or activity or if you think your child is going to be a professional.
If you child is young, it is okay to start on a portable keyboard, not full sized. Yamaha has many, many models good for children that are also of good quality. When considering your portable keyboard options, I recommend a weighted keyboard. There is a difference between weighted and non-weighted keys. Weighted keys make it feel like your child is playing on and touching real keys (of an upright or grand piano), which will make an impact later on. If interest in piano persists, invest in something substantial, like an upright piano.
