PIANO FOR A MUSIC STUDENT
As a classic music student, a full size piano (one with 88 weighted keys) should be your utmost target. It means that you have a full size work platform and are free to do or play any piece you want on your piano without being limited by the number of keys. That full size platform we just explained is available for you on the Grand piano, Upright piano, digital Upright piano as well as 88 weighted key depending on your budget and space. portable pianos A Grand or Upright piano could be your first priority though a digital piano will be waiting perfectly in the side lines just in case your budget and space options are limited. Ideally they should have 88 weighted keys. In case for budget or other reason cannot go with the above, the next in queue is a portable digital piano, 88 weighted keys on a portable keyboard. You can attach a sustain pedal and you should be fine.
Finally when all the above have not worked, you can get yourself an ordinary keyboard, usually 61 keys. An important fact here is that the more keys, the better. 88 keys on a simple touch sensitive keyboard are better than 62 keys on a fancy costly keyboard if you are acquiring it for classical music purposes.

A modern church will do great with the mix of acoustic piano and digital piano and a modern keyboard. To date, church has incredible options in this area. These are our recommendations:

For example the Yamaha CVP series features these benefits, especially the higher series such as CVP 601 and above. Another option lies in the portable pianos such as the DGX series (for example DGX 620,640 and 650) which offer users numerous beats and styles for any occasion.
