Casio Understands Importance of Music Education
Casio provides innovative technology to make learning music easier
Casio America, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, is dedicated to providing budding musicians of all levels with the instruments they need to foster a love and appreciation of music. Besides teaming up with various organizations to gift music classrooms keyboards for innovative and imaginative learning, the company has gotten creative with their products to help expand music education across all levels.
Casio’s SA-46 Mini Keyboard is the perfect instrument to help students start their musical journey. It features endless exploration with 100 tones, 50 rhythms and ten practice tunes built right into the instrument. The SA-46 is also designed specifically for younger students, offering 32 mini keys and five drum pads, in a lightweight and portable package. It even has an easy to read LCD panel and built-in speakers for playing aloud with an instructor, or a 3.5 mm mini stereo headphone output for quiet play during class or at home.
Casio’s Portable CTK-3500 and CTK-2550, and Key Lighting LK-265 and LK-190 keyboards are outfitted with Casio’s Voice Fingering Guide and Step-up Lesson System which enable beginners to learn built-in songs, phase-by-phase, at their own individual pace. With the LCD display, consumers can learn both music notation and correct hand positioning, while Casio’s innovative Scoring System evaluates performance so users can track their progress. With the Key Lighting keyboards, players can also practice with the help of the lighted 61-key piano keyboard making learning both fun and entertaining. In addition, all of these keyboards feature Casio’s exciting Dance Music Mode, which divides the piano keyboard into different instrument sections like drums, bass, and more.
The CTK-2550, CTK-3500 and LK-265 can also connect to Casio’s Chordana Play app – a free music app that enables people who have no experience playing an electronic keyboard to have fun, while also helping seasoned keyboard players expand their repertoires. The app can automatically play 50 songs, from pop to classical and more and is expandable through MIDI files that can be downloaded from the Interent. As the song plays, the app displays the correct keyboard position for both hands in real time in the piano roll window. Users can also play by touching the virtual keyboard which also offers lesson and scoring functions. The CTK-2550, CTK-3500 and LK-265 connects directly to the app using a standard 1/8” stereo cable between an iOS or Android device and the keyboard. Casio’s Chordana Play app is available for free in the App Store and Google Play.
