This is the keyboard that includes comprehensive instructional software lauded by The Wall Street Journal as "well-planned and effective." Exclusive to Hammacher Schlemmer, the software contains over 400 step-by-step, full-screen lessons and more than 70 video demonstrations, taught by two instructors from the renowned Juilliard School of Music. Instruction begins with basics such as clapping to teach rhythm, progressing to intermediate skills such as improvisations on the black keys, leading to simple songs with both hands. The keyboard plugs into a computer using the included 6 1/2' USB cable, allowing the software to "listen" as you play, providing instant feedback by highlighting correctly played and incorrectly played notes on its animated keyboard. Over 100 songs such as Joplin's The Entertainer, Beethoven's Ode To Joy, and Billy Joel's Piano Man are included, and you can slow any song to suit learning speed. The five-octave keyboard is fully loaded with 400 instrument voices and over 150 rhythms. All sounds are produced clearly by two 2-watt speakers; includes headphones jack. Works on Windows 8, Vista, or XP, and Mac. Plugs into AC with the included adapter or uses six AA batteries (not included). 37 1/4" W x 14" D x 4 3/4" H. (9 1/4 lbs)
