I’ve previously written about the benefits of a child learning a musical instrument. Not only does it improve their fine motor skills and cognitive development but it also helps with emotional development and academic improvement.
Lucas has wanted to learn the piano for a while now but they are not exactly the smallest instrument to have in the home. When I was searching for alternatives for him, I came across the Carry On Folding Piano.
The carry on piano is available in 88 keys and 49 keys. We got the 49 keys which, when researching is the best for a beginner to learn before moving onto an 88 key piano. The 49 key folding design transforms to just over 15 inches in length for incredible portability and easy storage in an instrument bag or backpack. Perfect for not taking up space in the home and great for practicing outside or taking to lessons.
It is also battery powered so we don’t need to worry about having to find a plug. The keyboard piano has a USB rechargeable lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 8 hours of playing time.
It features a 3.5mm aux port/jack that allows headphone use for silent play with high quality audio, or you can connect to larger amps and speakers.
Thanks to an intuitive keyboard design, these authentic keys offer the natural touch and playing feel of a real instrument, unlike roll-up keyboards. The keys are as wide as a regular piano but a little shorter.
It also includes a sustain pedal that adds a smooth legato effect to your music for a full performance experience.
The 30 demo songs have been specially composed to offer a wide range of practice accompaniments and the built-in metronome has 6 accent settings.
Lucas is really enjoying creating music with it and I have ordered some music key stickers to put on the keys whilst he is learning the different notes and where he should be pressing. I love how compact it is whilst keeping the quality of a full size keyboard piano so he can learn properly and maybe when I find some free time, I can try to learn too!
