If you are wondering what a digital piano is, here is a short explanation.
Digital pianos, sometimes called electric pianos were designed to emulate the characteristics of an acoustic piano. i.e. they have weighted keys like an acoustic piano they have touch sensitivity like an acoustic piano. They have come along way since they were first introduced in 1983. Now it is almost impossible to hear or feel the difference from an acoustic piano.
There are some advantages to a digital piano, they are, you can play using headphones so nobody can hear you, you can also play it through its own speakers but turn it down to a volume that suits your environment. Another good feature about the digital piano is that you can usually select different voices such as , strings, electric piano, synths, harpsichord etc. You can also connect a digital piano to a computer to compose music and arrange and record it. On some digital pianos you can record direct onto the piano.
Entry level digital pianos start at a lower price point than acoustic pianos and for this reason the are often the first instrument these days, rather than a used acoustic piano.
There are also digital pianos that have rhythms and backings similar to a keyboard but with all the benefits of a piano. These type of pianos often have many sounds and rhythms and features. They can be a great workstation to compose from and can give hours of pleasure to the most accomplished pianist as well as the most basic pianist.
