Well I am going to buy a d.piano for my 10 years old daughter.
She has been studying piano for 3 years.
Her teacher suggest to buy a cheap dp under 1000euros and after 3-4 years an upright piano.
We live in apartment and we have unfriendly neighbours, so it is difficult to play an upright piano.
Is it possible to study only with a good d.piano as Kawai CA65 ?
I have read in this forum that is a great instrument.
If we follow her teacher's advice, which is better cn35 or ca15 or something cheaper ?
How long can she study with these Kawais?
The bad thing is that we have not the choice to test any of them in a showroom.
I don't Know which is the right choice.
Any recommedation ?

Thank you in advance

A piano student would do better with a CA15 than a CN35, I think. But it always depends on which feel you prefer. Your daughter might like the CN35 better - you never know - but the CA15 has the finer quality keyboard - it is designed to be more piano-like and uses wooden parts (which may or may not be considered an advantage).

It's a pity you can't try them because you could also consider the Roland HP504 / HP 506 (or the older HP505) in about this price range, and also the mid-range Yamaha CLP 'Clavinova' models.

You can go a long way in classical piano study with a digital piano of this quality. The feel is fairly similar to a grand piano and the sound - although 'captured' and less lively than a real piano - sounds quite similar to a high quality recording of a real piano.

It depends on what type of music is being taught.

If it's classical then at some point she get to a stage where the DPianos that use samples will be limiting and just wont cut it.
Like the V-Piano these dont use samples.
