  • 49-60: For basic keyboard learning and entering straight forward music, you will still be able to fit the keyboard in front of your computer and shouldn't have to spend too much.
  • 61+:  If you are a pianist, want to learn, or plan on entering complex music, a 61 key or larger keyboard is the way to go. They will take up more space, but shouldn't restrict your playing.
  • None: If you only need a ...
