An electric keyboard could be the ideal instrument for anyone who wants to be able to learn to play music quickly.

Yamaha keyboard teacher Melley Oey told the Vernon Morning Star that it does not take a long time to master songs on the instrument and once they get going, players tend to find it "really fun".

She pointed out that electric keyboards give musicians a host of options for the sound they want to create.

"With the electric keyboard, you have everything, especially dynamic accompaniment such as rock 'n' roll, waltz, jazz, Latin and more," Ms Oey stated.

She added that it is also possible to recreate the sound of a piano, guitar, flute or trombone on the musical instrument.

Earlier this month, research from BBC Worldwide revealed that the keyboard is one of the most popular instruments among children, second only to the guitar for boys and behind the recorder for girls.
