Desktop (MIDI) keyboard for practice.. - 01/05/13 02:39 PM

I am an adult beginner and learning using both Alfred's piano lessons & theory books..I have a Yamaha YDP-181 I use for "real" practice..Can someone suggest a small keyboard to practice with outside on the hammock or lounge chair that I can hook into "Garage Band" when the desire strikes...or is it a bad idea altogether and keep practicing on the big one...

Thanks...

Barry

Do you want something with fewer than 88 keys? If not, and if you can afford it, you can pick up a P155 that will feel just like your arius.

That was my other choice at the time, (P155), but my wife liked the Arius...So fewer than 88 keys..Lap or desktop

How about a Yamaha NP-11 or NP-31?

Light and compact - they can even run on batteries.

Cheers,
