This Kawai digital piano is the first big purchase the music studio has made. This is HUGE for me!! I did oodles of research and played a fair number of digital pianos to determine the touches I loved vs. found acceptable or unacceptable. (There are many options with "weighted keys", but they vary in the technology used to achieve the sound. After all the research I did, I really still had to sit at each one to see how it felt under my hands.)
This is not a replacement for an acoustic piano. Someday I'll get a grand piano. :) This is so I will have a second piano in my studio with some features that really open up my options for partner lessons and group lesson activities. It has already proven very useful! And fun!
