      Comments about Yamaha PSR E243 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

      This keyboard is great for the beginner on a budget. Still packed with a bunch of great sounds, this easy to use keyboard makes for a great gift for anyone looking to start, but isn't too sure how much they want to play. The keys are good and the product sounds great.

      This is a real, hands on product review from Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

            Great for kids getting started. Easy for kids hands, and has great learning features, like showing what fingers to use. Runs on batteries for portability but you need to buy a power adapter for extended use. Great for learners with a small budget!

                    This is a feature packed starter keyboard. It's fun to play along to the built in rhythms and songs. The expansive array of tonal possibilities make learning to play fun and encourages creativity. Seasoned players may enjoy this as a travel or practice keyboard.

                    Comments about Yamaha PSR E243 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

                    This keyboard has made my learning experience so easy! When studying for my Music Education degree, I was required to take a piano course and a piano for home practice was a large investment. The Yamaha PSR E-243 made it very easy for me to get my hands on a piano with accurate sounds to learn on at home or at my practice room! The keyboard itself is very easy to use and so easy to move from place to place! I am very happy that I came across this instrument!
