The digital piano (which used to be known as an electronic piano and which is sometimes referred to as a keyboard) first came to the market place over 20 years ago. The instrument was designed to be an alternative to a traditional piano and not a replacement. Clearly, since the early days the digital piano has improved tremendously and now the new generation of technology is formally accepted by leading authorities the world over.
Digital pianos have a lower cost to traditional pianos, take up less space, never need tuning, produce other sounds and have many other useful features to assist with learning. And most importantly they feel like a traditional piano, providing that you choose certain brands of course. The digital piano actions are 'weighted' which means that the keys are heavy, just like a traditional piano. This is something that your piano teacher will be most insistent on.
The sound of a digital piano is created by modern computerised technology called 'digital sampling'. In other words, the sound is recorded from a live concert grand piano. Each individual note. The digital samples are stored and then used.
