Since starting my piano learning journey in 2019, I have had the opportunity to try out many different types of music gear; some I liked, some I didn’t, some I bought, and some I returned! I’m including piano related equipment reviews here for equipment that I spent enough time with that I think I can offer an honest opinion on. Also, please note that I may have links to Amazon for products I have reviewed so that you can check current pricing, and as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases

This is my review on the Roland GO:Mixer Pro. This is a fantastic super portable mixer that is ALSO an audio interface! I have used this for a year; every day as a simple practice mixer (so I can hear my piano, vocals and iPad together), and occasionally as an audio interface to record videos with high quality sound. I’ve been very happy with this product so I wanted to share my thoughts.
This is my review on the Alesis Recital entry level digital piano. 88 full sized semi-weighted keys, decent sounds, L/R line outs & USB MIDI for a really affordable price.
This is my review of my new digital piano, the Yamaha P-125. When I was upgrading from my Alesis Recital Pro, I agonized between the Yamaha P-125 and the Roland FP-30, and chose the FP-30. I had that for 6 months and I did really like it, but . . . then I took it back and got a P-125. Check the review out to find out why I think this piano is so awesome and why I have settled on this piano as the perfect one for me.
This is my review of the Casiotone CTS-300 entry level arranger keyboard. Great value in a super portable keyboard with tons of voices, rhythms and USB MIDI
