Music Theory Keyboard Information
Music students are strongly encouraged to own a portable electronic keyboard for personal use and study. Students will benefit in many classes from having access to a keyboard. Theory classes often have keyboard assignments, and teachers expect that students will have access to a keyboard for doing homework and reinforcing class activities. Portable keyboards are available for less than $150 at music stores and other retailers. We recommend a keyboard with full-size keys and a 5 octave range (approximately 61 keys). Many students may already own larger, more elaborate keyboards, which will work as well.
