A PIANO THAT ACTUALLY HELPS YOU LEARN TO PLAY THE PIANO!
We leave this product listing here for two reasons: 1) as a resource for owners of this model for video demos and support links below; 2) this piano has a good resale market, we occasionally get a rent return, etc.
The oxymoron we get asked everyday from parents: I want to get a basic piano for my child to start lessons but I don’t too much because I’m afraid they may not stick with it. The simple answer is to get a piano that solves the problem of why kids “don’t stick with piano.” The Roland HPi-50e is designed from the ground up to help you or your child learn to play the piano. This is flat out our number one selling piano because it makes sense! The built-in screen contains ONLY the features that help you learn to play and is free from the distractions found on tablets (clash of clans, Facebook, Instagram, chat notifications, etc.).
Bringing together Roland’s top-level touch, tone, and digital advantages in one attractive, space-saving instrument, the HPi-50e offers premium performance at an incredible value. True piano authenticity is further enhanced with the Dynamic Harmonic feature newly integrated into the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, and the new flagship PHA-4 Concert Keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel brings a new level of expression with the latest touch-sensing technology. Individual Note Voicing lets you adjust the sound of each key to suit your taste, while the innovative Headphones 3D Ambience effect provides a rich, immersive experience for your private practice sessions. Additionally, powerful onboard DigiScore features are displayed in high-resolution on the large color LCD that’s built into the music rest, with digital sheet music and a wide range of skill-building exercises and games that make learning and playing fun for all ages.
