CASIO ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO CELEBRATE THE GIFT OF MUSIC DURING NATIONAL PIANO MONTH
Casio’s Extensive Portfolio of Digital Pianos and Keyboards Enhances Music Education for All
September is National Piano Month and Casio America, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, is encouraging people and families that now is the best time to start making beautiful music together at home. Casio’s extensive portfolio of digital pianos, keyboards and learning resources offer people of all ages exposure to music with added benefits such as reducing stress, improving coordination and increasing music education as a whole.
The benefits of music education are numerous and learning how to play the piano can open the gates to a wide range of musical interests in the future. While most schools offer a baseline level of music education, many programs are limited, and in most instances classroom instruments can be scarce. Bringing music into the home with Casio’s digital pianos and keyboards can be a great way to gather the family together and bring out musical talents. Casio offers a wide range of digital pianos and keyboards for every skill level. Its Privia line of digital pianos is the ideal solution for at-home music lessons and jam sessions regardless if you have an ace musician or a beginner in your midst.
“Music plays such an important role in life and as a manufacturer of high-quality digital pianos and keyboards, it is paramount we do all we can to provide consumers with instruments that not only encourage learning, but also foster an overall love for music,” said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “Our Privia line of digital pianos, specifically the PX-150, offers families a high-quality digital piano experience that enables them to create music and have fun together, while enriching their lives musically.”
Casio’s Privia line of digital pianos raises the industry standard with unprecedented sound quality, a superior grand piano experience and performance features in a lightweight, stylish design. The PX-150 is equipped with a redesigned 88-note Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard. The simulated ebony and ivory textured keys on the PX-150 reproduces the touch feeling of an acoustic piano while the scaled weighted action keyboard provides the depth and integrity of an acoustic piano. This is all intended to provide a natural sensatory feel for the musician while delivering the sounds and benefits of a digital piano.
The PX-150 was designed with Casio’s proprietary sound source, “AiR” (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator), which delivers unmatched realism and detail. Utilizing over three times the waveform memory of the previous generation, the AiR engine provides sensational dynamics, damper resonance and even compensates for the speed at which hammers strike strings at different velocities and key ranges.
Casio Privia PX-150 has a total of 18 built-in instrument tones including strings, organs, electric pianos and bass. The PX-150’s Duet Mode also splits the keyboard into two equal ranges, allowing student and teacher to use the piano simultaneously.
