    Would you buy any car without knowing the type of vehicle you need? You're probably nodding your head and saying '"no". Most people wouldn't. But many do buy a piano based on little more than just knowing some of the features. And many more get home with a digital piano that is blatantly wrong for them. They've spent thousands of dollars and discover that it really isn't what they wanted.

    So the question is, how do buy a piano that is right for you? Buying a digital piano can be confusing especially with a huge selection to choose from with many features. But I am going to show you how to choose a digital piano that is right for you.

    The biggest question I get from visitors to my site is "what kind of digital piano should I buy?" Does that sound like you? And with that I am going to provide you with the insight you need to help you choose the right keyboard based on a simple principle based self reflection. What do I mean by that? Find out below.

    Forget about the digital pianos on the market for a moment and reflect on your playing style. Once you understand your style, you will be in a better position to match a keyboard that fits your needs and playing style.

    A few player Styles -- Which One is Right for You?
    Below is a description of 5 possible player styles. Try to discover which one best describes you. Think about how you play, the type of music you play and most of all what do you want to accomplish at the piano.

    Please note that you may exhibit or you may think that you display more than one of these player types, however, if you really think about it, there will only be one type that defines your playing style above the rest. Also, as your playing style matures, you might find that you will explore other types and it might seem that you are a "good" fit for a particular player type, however your natural style will always shine through the other styles.

    The Classic

    As a classical performer your fingers pound the keys to seemingly impossible stretches beyond an octave, while at times your keyboard must respond to the slightest touch. From a touch that caresses the keys to heart pounding strength, you're in control and your keyboard is an accurate reflection of everything that you demand of it.

    Highly attuned keyboard dynamics is what you are looking for. Your keyboard is an extension of yourself. Look for a digital piano that has graded weighted keys and that has exceptional sampling technology. Find your ideal keyboard here.

    The Trad

    You are yearning learn to play piano and are looking to buy an affordable keyboard while you explore your music abilities. You've always wanted to play the piano and now you have the time to learn. You are looking forward to the day you can put on a little concert for your family and friends.

    You like the idea of buying a traditional acoustic piano to learn on. Today, many piano teachers recommend digital pianos because of the value compared to a traditional piano.

    Digital pianos today are so refined that it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between acoustic and its digital cousins but a digital piano offers several additional instrument sounds unlike an acoustic piano. Piano teachers note that many young students who practice on a digital piano will continue piano lessons much longer than those students who practice on a traditional acoustic piano because of the variety of keyboard instruments that can be played on the digital piano thereby maintaining a students interest. So come and meet your affordable keyboard here.

    The Improv

    Your fingers love to fly across the keyboard and you're in tune with your creative soul. You love to find unique chord arrangements and create lightening fast solos around these unique chord patterns. Your 'licks' or improvisations flow almost instantaneously. You find a chord pattern and solo that just reverberates to the very depths of your soul. Your keyboard is a reflection of that creative process. So look for a digital piano that has graded weighted keys.

    One of the best keyboards tailored for your type of style is Yamaha. Legendary greats such as Oscar Peterson play on a Yamaha. I own a Yamaha CP 300 digital piano and its the best stage piano available.
