uLearn Music recommend the following instruments. All uLearn Music and Lynbrook School of Music students are eligible for a discount from our local instrument store.
Please only buy instruments from a reputable music store. Purchasing an instrument from a supermarket chain will not be suitable for learning on and may require you to purchase another instrument only a few months down the track as the student advances.
Yamaha PSR E363
The Yamaha PSR E363 is a great student keyboard which is touch responsive. This is the minimum starting point for keyboard / piano students. You can also consider the higher models for more sounds and features.
An alternative to the keyboard above, the Yamaha NP12 is also a student keyboard which is touch responsive. It doesn’t have some of the additional sounds of the above model. If you are after a keyboard without the distractions this is for you.
