FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

MAKE OCTOBER THE MONTH YOU LEARN TO PLAY PIANO
Celebrate National Learning and Development Month with Casio Music Gear

DOVER, NJ, October 24, 2017 - The month of October is designated as National Learning and Development Month in an effort to inspire individuals to focus on advancing both personal and professional skills. As we grow older, it is important to learn new skills that can keep minds sharp as well as bring new joy to everyday life. Casio America, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, encourages consumers to take part in National Learning and Development Month by learning or advancing their piano playing skills.

Casio’s latest Portable Keyboards include the features needed to get a kick start on learning to play piano. The CTK-3500 and CTK-2550 and Key Lighting LK-265 and LK-190 keyboards are outfitted with Casio’s Voice Fingering Guide and Step-up Lesson System which enable beginners to learn built-in songs, phase-by-phase, at their own individual pace. Additionally, the LCD display enables the learning of both music notation and correct hand positioning, while Casio’s innovative Scoring System evaluates performance so users can track their progress.

In addition, all of these new keyboards feature Casio’s exciting new Dance Music Mode, which divides the piano keyboard into different instrument sections like drums, bass, and more. Another great asset for those looking to learn the piano is Casio’s Chordana Play app. Chordana Play is a free music app that can automatically play 50 songs, from pop to classical and more and is expandable through MIDI files that can be downloaded from the internet. As the song plays, the app displays the correct keyboard position for both hands in real time in the piano roll window. Users can also play by touching the virtual keyboard which also offers lesson and scoring functions. The CTK-2550, CTK-3500 and LK-265 keyboards connect directly to the app using a standard 1/8” stereo cable between an iOS or Android device and the keyboard. Casio’s Chordana Play app is available for free in the App Store and on Google Play.

The CTK-3500 (MSRP:$199.99), CTK-2550 (MSRP$: 169.99), LK-265 (MSRP: $259.99), and LK-190 (MSRP: $129.99) keyboards are available now at select music dealers nationwide.
