The keyboard is perfect if you want to learn a wholesome instrument.
A keyboard is different from the piano in the sense that you can play not only piano sounds but the sounds of multiple instruments on the keyboard. Be it an electric piano, bass, guitar, saxophone, flute, orchestral strings, harmonium or synthesised sounds like pads and leads. The art of playing each instrument is different, and hence is becomes important to learn their workings and how it can be replicated on the keyboard.
We groom our students in novice techniques like hand-eye synchronisation, musicality and understanding of the theory and technical working of the keyboard as well as advanced concepts like digital synthesis, MIDI and use of the keyboard in music production. We recommend the keys to amateur Musicians, Composer, Producers and Performers for its sheer variety of use and mainstream importance.
