Learn To Play With An Illuminated Keyboard


Casio America, Inc. has announced its newest and most affordable lighted keyboard, the LK-165. The LK-165 features Casio's proprietary Step-Up Lesson System, making it easy for anyone to learn to play the keyboard – starting with the basics.
The LK-165 allows novice users to learn 110 built-in songs phase by phase, at their own individual pace. Utilizing the LCD display, aspiring musicians can learn both music notation and correct hand positioning, while Casio's interactive Step-Up Lesson System evaluates performance, allowing users to track their progress and incremental success in order to improve their playing skills.
Mike Martin, general manager, marketing, Electronic Musical Instruments Division, told us, "We are thrilled to offer a product that will enhance musical literacy. With the enhanced tools and instructional capabilities found in our LK-165, beginners and amateur musicians alike will benefit from the built in chord book and illuminated keys. Learning to play will progress faster with the lighted keyboard and it's lesson system."
The LK-165 boasts a 61-Key Piano Style keyboard and features a class-compliant USB MIDI port, allowing, say Casio, for easy access to utilize the keyboard to rock out with popular music education and composition software. The keyboard also includes an audio input which transforms the keyboard into a stereo speaker system for a MP3 Player.
Other key features include 400 Built-in Tones, 10 Reverb Types, a 10-Second Sampler and 150 Rhythms and Accompaniments.
