The Casio LK-270 Personal Keyboard is a great tool for teaching both beginners and more advanced players! The LK-270 includes a Step-teaching function to get great instruction from the very beginning. The Step Lesson's songs are separated into smaller phrases that is easy for anyone to understand and recreate. The keyboard will have you play a phrase of music and when that phrase is mastered you are ready to advance to the next phrase. After completing phrase after phrase you will find that you have learned to play a whole song, one section at a time.
Talk about an effective teacher, the Casio LK-270 has lighted keys that show you where to play next and will also call out the number of what finger needs to play next in a simulated voice.
Illuminated Key Learning System
The 61 illuminated keys of the Casio LK-270 act as your guide to a wide range of songs and support the principal of "Learning by playing". Just like traditional piano lessons, the practice piece is divided into individual bar sections and learnt step-by-step:
- Step 1: Listen - The player listens to the relevant bar section repeatedly to get a feeling for the piece.
- Step 2: See - The player follows the illuminated keys and sees the correct finger movements on the large LC display. The song playback waits until the correct note is played.
- Step 3: Remember - The player plays the bar section from memory. After a while, the illuminated key function is activated if the correct note is not hit.
When the "Auto" mode is switched on, a set practice goal must be reached before the next bar section is displayed. With the "Next" mode you can set your own learning speed.
570 AHL Tones
The high-quality 570 AHL tones create clear and dynamic sounds, which unfold in all sounds and rhythms found in classical piano pieces, as well as many other genres.
Sound diversity at its best: the Casio LK-270 can play up to 48 voices at the same time, turning interpretation of a wide range of musical pieces into a pure pleasure.
180 rhythms built into the Casio LK-270 provide you with a colourful overview of the world of music.
A feature with fun factor: the simple sampling of sounds via an external sound source such as MP3 and CD players (via Audio-in) or microphone (via Mic-in) offers interesting effects and amusing compositions. Whether a bar of your favourite musical piece, loops or drum sounds, human voices or noises of any kind -- the recorded samples (up to 10 seconds) can be played via the Casio LK-270 and effects added as desired.
With the arpeggiator, a chord played on the Casio LK-270 is divided into a sequence of individual notes repeated in succession. Perfect for all dance or electro styles!
