      Comments about Casio WK-245 76-Key Workstation Keyboard:

      Lets face it. Casio has been around forever and they aren't going anywhere. As long as they keep making amazing entry level keyboards like this that is. This thing is perfect for kids starting out or anyone looking to learn how to play and all that without breaking the bank. Definitely recommend

          Casio has done it again with the release of the WK425. With their new sound engine Casio has never been better, even the upgraded speaker system has helped in achieving their new sound. Come into Sam Ash King of Prussia to try it out!

            The WK-245 is by far Casio's best beginner's keyboard yet. It has 76 full-sized keys perfect for young learners and an easy to use learning feature packed with different exercises to keep your skills sharp between lessons. Somehow this piece is just $199.99!!!!!

              Affordable Workstation

              Comments about Casio WK-245 76-Key Workstation Keyboard:

              A Workstation under $200? Are you kidding me? This is great! This allows you to get your feet wet in the world of music production and creation on a workstation board without having to drop $3500 on a Motif!

              Comes with the power supply too!

                This is the kind of thing kids need when they get started. It's got all the sounds of the new pop music, and all the old sounds, too. They can even learn from this thing a little bit. It should keep them interest and playing, and that's what you want.

                Comments about Casio WK-245 76-Key Workstation Keyboard:

                I recently picked out a intro keyboard for my little cousin and was very pleased with the Casio stuff. This keyboard here is just great for children learning and small studios. It has 76 keys which makes it much less limiting than other smaller keyboards and the keys don't feel half bad! obviously i'd prefer weighted keys, but that just doesn't exists in this price range. And besides it being good for learning, it's nice for small studios who need to do some quick midi stuff here and there!

                  This is a great first keyboard. It has all the buttons and sounds that will keep a child interested in playing long enough to really learn something. As a teacher, this is one of the keyboards I'll recommend to parents who aren't sure their child is going to stick with keyboard, and don't want to spend a lot of money on an instrument.
