I think I am the biggest Robbie Williams fan in America. I have been a fan since 95 when he was in Take That. Granted I was like 11 at the time and didn't really know who he was - I remember thinking wow that guy in the bear coat is kinda cute. (aww wasn't that sweet?) Then he disapeared from my TV and my mind, then low and behold a friend of mine online had me go to Rob's official website and there he was and I was hooked again! I heard about 30 seconds of Angels and was in tears and an automatic Rob fan for life. I have been an addict since November of 98. I know that it may not seem like a long time but considering that his American debut CD, The Ego Has Landed, wasn't released until May, 9th 1999...I think I'm a bit ahead of the game.
The Advantages of Owning a Digital Piano: Electronic Pianos Vs. Real Pianos
In the eyes of highly conservative classical music enthusiasts, a digital piano is verging on sacrilegious. It must be said, the construction of a digital piano cannot compare with the workmanship involved in building a real piano. Moreover, the aesthetic appeal of a real piano is unmatchable and, perhaps more importantly, digital pianos cannot replicate the sound and dynamics of the real thing.
However, there are many advantages to owning an electronic piano and for some budding pianists the digital piano may be the best option. You can even play Robbie Williamís songs on the digital piano like the tutorial below:
For many beginners, owning a real piano, whether horizontal or vertical, is out of their price ranges. Typically, a digital piano is much more affordable. Of course, some of the more sophisticated models are more expensive. However, a good quality electronic piano is generally more affordable.
Another problem for many would-be piano owners is that they do not have the space for a real piano, like most people living in New York. Not only is a digital piano smaller, but it is also portable, making it possible to own a piano in a small home. You can start with a digital piano and learn using it while getting lessons from www.MusicToYourHome.com. When you master playing it, you can find a wider place in NYC and buy the grand piano if you like.
Unfortunately, buying a real piano is not the end of the expense. A piano needs constant and regular maintenance. Depending on the amount of use the instrument gets, regular tuning can become very expensive. Additionally, to keep a piano in good condition it should be kept in a position that is not close to a source of heat and in a room that will not became neither cold nor damp. Obviously, all of these considerations are eliminated by owning a digital piano.
Digital pianos have many features that are beneficial to learning pianists. Volume control is particularly useful for those who live in apartments or do not want to disturb other members of the household
In addition, record and playback features can be very advantageous to a beginner, as it offers the opportunity to note mistakes and observe progress. However, not all digital pianos provide this feature, which is something that should be considered during purchase.
Although most digital pianos cannot replicate the dynamics of a real piano, attempts have been made to achieve this feature. Unfortunately, thus far, it is the more sophisticated, and therefore more expensive, models that include this technology.
Of course, if money and space are no object, then the ideal is to have a beautiful real piano. However, this is not the case for the vast majority of people. Therefore, having access to an instrument is the important thing. For anybody who wants to own a piano, a digital model is a perfect alternative and, in some ways, an electronic piano has advantages over the real thing.
I now work for a company called MediaXS and we work for Capitol Records (Rob's American label) and Warner Brothers. So that means that I get to do online artist promotions for Robbie and a lot of other bands. Check out Mediaxs for more info.
