We are using keyboards to teach Y1, Y2 and Y5 children music this year. The keyboards we are using are Yamaha PSS-F30 as, with smaller keys, they are small enough for children to have one each on tables but still have a decent range of notes. It would be useful for children to have keyboards to practise on at home. You may already have one or prefer a larger model but, if you are thinking of buying one, these are ideal for young children to learn on. They also work with earphone/headphones so children can practise silently and we have already requested that children bring earphones into school for their lessons.
