21stcenturymusician reviews the Yamaha YPT-230 (PSR-E233) low-cost digital keyboard.
Author: Stephen Mendes
I’m looking at the Yamaha PSR-E253. This is for children to play with and learn, and hopefully take to music. I realize that it’s pretty basic but if they show genuine interest I am ok buying a better instrument later, or a MIDI keyboard for something like Ableton or Komplete. … my children are 3,6, and 9 years old. It will likely get used by other kids as well as myself. I am mainly just wanting something that isn’t a toy, to see if I can get them interested in music. In our home we already have percussion instruments as well as a 3/4 size guitar and amplifier. Any input would be most welcomed, and thanks for the videos.
I nearly falled asleep when you played the piano sound! Since i can think, i always listen to classic music like the piano.. it’s the HEAVEN!
You are a strange man!!!
johnny rotten look alike
Does it havetranspose?
touch sensitive keys setting?
Thank you for the information !
Bajan , !
It depends what you want to play….. pop or classics…… if hoping to be a modern day Chopin or Bach by all means get the 88 keys….. if you just want to sing along with pop songs or have a lot of fun with a portable keyboard 61 keys is plenty… I find the 5 octaves quite adequate to play most anything
can it be use as a midi?
Thanks for that man! Where is your accent from? It’s all over the place, American, Dutch, northern English. It’s great!
Great keyboard for beginner’s
R u filipino
Is it touch sensitive?
Dat video quality tho
can the keyboard change octave or change keys?
I have this piano and I’m trying to figure out if it can record something and play it in the back round and I can play a different part on the piano at the same time. I can’t read the manual because it don’t see 20/20 etc.
Simply press the TEMPO/TAP button and then enter the tempo with the number keys (or use the + or – button if you prefer)

Thanks for this review . We bought one for the child of my cousin.
can we connect it to computer such as mac to use it with garage band or other programs and does it have “touch” option.
dose it has a usb plug in at the back to plug in to the computer ?
I find touch sensitivity in an un-weighted keyboard very UNDESIRABLE….. if you want to caress the keys with such emotion then get a weighted, hammer-action
model…. this keyboard is about casual FREEDOM…. like going to the beach…. or a barbeque in the woods while camping…. nobody should be using this on stage or in a studio for any serious music….. at a couple hundred bucks…. what do you expect ????
This is the real body loaded in the keyboard sound? Nice piano voices.
Hi, do you know how to on the dual voice?
What kind of accent is that ha.. bit Rastafarion in there !
