That was for the 54key was also tempted to buy this but chose not too.

Oh yes, sorry it was! This is a cracking deal then
shame it's got no midi out. ideally required if you're using a tablet app to help learn as you can connect the two devices together. alternative is turning the keyboard's internal speakers up to maximum volume, which tbh isn't ideal.

voting hot for the price, just know it's limitations people.

Will it be a pain trying to use this model with an iPad app? I don't want to spend a fortune and this looks good value for money (for a 7yo!!)

the pain may be felt in your ears. you wont know until you turn it up to max to see if it's tolerable if you're using with a ipad app. the version of this keyboard with the midi connection is £89.99. so it might be worth keeping an eye on that for it to reduce in price?

Edit:
just checked camelcamelcamel. looks like the midi version was down to £65 on wednesday. looks like anyone wanting the midi version for a sale may have missed the boat.

It's a good price for this keyboard, but if you can afford something better, it would really improve your learning experience. Instead of impulse buying something, set yourself a budget and buy the best thing you can with that budget. Plenty of members on here including myself that can help out and find you the best thing you can buy for your money.

What would be best to get a 5 year old with no experience starting?

It would be great if you could give an example for different budgets, for eg. low budget up to £50, medium up to £100 or so, and over. That should help almost everyone who's interested.

I'd prefer to spend less, but won't mind paying a bit more if it's worth it

Also, I do have a midi keyboard for my desktop. Would some sort of software be better than any of these keyboards?

Good advice. It's for my 7yo who is learning at school. Currently loves it but liable to change her mind. To link with an iPad would be great. Maybe £75max. Thank you

Under £50 I don't thing you can do much better than the RockJam, but perhaps it would be better to get this bundle which also comes with a stand and stool etc:
amazon.co.uk/Ele…1-6

If you want a starting tool to get into piano, it's better to go for something like a Yamaha Piaggero, which has fully sized piano keys. They are not really weighted like a real piano, but it will definitely get you closer to the real thing.
amazon.co.uk/Yam…-18


Otherwise, you really can't go wrong with anything Yamaha or Casio offers for their price range. For example, the cheapest keyboard Yamaha offers and I would consider is:
amazon.co.uk/Yam…1-4

And a bit more fully featured with iPad support:
amazon.co.uk/Yam…1-3

Thanks. I just got the Rockjam RJ661 from Amazon Warehouse and tested it now. There's a constant loud buzzing sound coming from both speakers. Does that mean it's kaput?

[EDIT] Just spoke to Amazon and they said to return it.

So, which do you recommend between the Rockjam RJ661 and Yamaha PSRF51 please? Thanks!

Possibly a bit large for my tiny 5 year old, but she's probably only going to play it twice, and it looks big enough for me to hang at least 3 folded towels on afterwards.

Personally not very fond of the PSRF51, it's just not robust enough for my taste, but it's the cheapest keyboard I would actually recommend for a kid, and certainly higher quality than the RockJam.

I see. And if I was to increase the budget, which between the Yamaha NP-12 and Yamaha EZ-220 pls? It will be for me and the kids.

Both are good choices to start with, the EZ-220 has many more voices as it's a keyboard, so it's more versatile, but the NP-12 is much more compact and robust, and has less distractions. Also looks slick and nice despite being cheap. Perhaps a better learning tool if you want to go towards piano. Up to you, personally I prefer the NP line. Both are velocity sensitive, though, and you might prefer having more options with EZ-220. Because they are only 61-key you will eventually have to get an 88-key and replace them, so it might be worth looking into the NP-32 as well if you are willing to go to the 200s of quid.

By the way, GuitarGuitar has this ex-Demo Casio CTK-7200 which is a cut above Ez-220, and very versatile, if you are happy with paying slightly more.

Would probably go with this one over the other two myself, but do keep in mind it does have even more distractions, and isn't as compact as NP-12.

my 5 year old wants a keyboard. Serious question, will this one sound like an actual piano like the good ones do? I've seen and heard some keyboards that sound exactly like a regular piano but i've also heard some cheap ones that sound terrible. I'm not going to buy a 5 year old a super expensive one, but I'd rather not buy her a "toy" if you know what I mean. Any advice appreciated thanks.

You are not gonna get something that sounds like a real piano for £50. The cheapest thing you can buy that sounds closer to a real piano would be the NP-12 digital piano. Still nowhere near a real piano in feel, of course, you need to pay a lot more than £150 for that.

For me anything below 100 quid is just a toy to be honest. Unless you are really strapped for cash, I would set my budget higher to get something better. I would only recommend something like that PSRF51 if you really have no more to spare. Casio CTK-1500AD is a similar story. Again though, it depends on if you want to learn piano or keyboard. If you are looking for an entry level piano-style keyboard, NP-12 is the cheapest viable option. For a keyboard, either the EZ-220 or Casio 3500AD are alright for starters.
