A kid piano is one of the most popular and educational toys available for children. Many parents and even schools want to see children develop their musical talents and a kid piano is an ideal way to begin this process. Many kid pianos look and operate just like their larger counterparts which makes the learning process that much easier and authentic.
When one thinks of a kid piano, what may immediately come to mind is a small, plastic box with a few colorful keys that chime out noises made by little bells. While technically a piano, this style of kid piano does not provide the means to truly educate kids on the ins and outs of playing and navigating a real piano. Offering children a pint-sized version of a standard, adult-sized piano is the best way to hone a child’s playing skills and learning ability.
Kid pianos come in an array of styles and sizes and are made of excellent quality. Basic models often have just a few keys which may or may not be color-coded and the sounds they generate are not much more than bell-like chimes. More sophisticated models often have a greater number of keys, some even approaching half or more of the 88 keys adult-sized pianos have, and the size of the keys in these models are generally the same as those in standard pianos. Sounds from these models may be created by rods or wires that are struck with small hammers or other devices inside the piano. Like their standard counterparts, a kid piano may need to be manually tuned, it may tune itself automatically, or it may never go out of tune if the right brand is purchased.
Kid pianos differ from each other in look and function but they all usually come with a songbook and instructional material to aid the child in learning to play. More advanced models often come with a finger strip that helps children learn which keys play what note and where to properly place their fingers. Less urbane models may simply have large, color-coded keys to help very small children develop hand-eye coordination and easy memorization.
Most of the same styles of standard, adult pianos are available in kid pianos and include grand pianos, baby grand pianos, spinet pianos, and upright pianos. Some of these styles are further divided into categories such as concert grand pianos, fancy grand pianos, or tabletop pianos. If the model you choose is quite elegant and refined, you may opt to include it in your home decoration projects. It still can be used as an educational item for your child but the beauty and elegance of some kid pianos are perfect for including in a person’s home décor.
The cost of a kid piano is as varied as the styles and brands of pianos on the market. Unadorned, basic models may be quite inexpensive while more refined and intricate models may sell for much more. The final cost will depend on how much value you feel your child will gain from the piano, whether or not your child likes it, and how much you can afford.
Kid pianos are, in reality, toys, but they can serve a much more important purpose. They can be the stepping stone in the cultivation of your child’s musical potential as well as provide you and your family an attractive and elegant piece of furniture or decoration. Whether purchased for your child or for yourself, a kid piano is a smart and savvy toy to own.
