Hi, I'm new here and I would like to buy my kid a new Piano this coming holiday. Do you have any recommendation or suggestions on what to buy for my 7 year old son? I was looking online these sites
Hi, stick with Yamaha or the Casio Previa. The Yamaha Clavinola series are great digital pianos, as well as the YPG series. The most important thing is how it feels- it should as close to an acoustic piano as possible.
The Casio Previa is a pro keyboard at an entry level price. The feel is great and it has built in speakers for a nice sound. I know a lot of professional players who use them on gigs where an acoustic piano is not avaialble.
I stopped teaching piano two years ago but if I had studens today I would recommend them the Kawai VPC1 with Ravenscroft Samplings If you want real keys combined with the best samplings.
I wrote this article on this setup and how to get the best results from this.
I hope your students find this helpful.

Volume 2 has 14 jazz piano exercises and tricks of the trade, and quite a bit of it is Calypso jazz piano related material, including some Monty Alexander and Michel Camilo style grooves. Jazz piano education is through the ears, but books like this can help.
Volume 3 contains 12 jazz piano exercises and explorations by the acclaimed jazz piano educator, pianist, author, and recording artist Tim Richards.
Volume 4 is by Jeff Brent, a jazz pianist, composer, teacher, and author of "Modalogy" and other acclaimed jazz theory and education books. In this book Jeff shares detailed analysis of transcriptions of live performances. He covers everything from the shape of the songs to the tricks and licks he uses in improvised lines to the ideas behind his lush chord voicings.
