Returning to school after the summer break doesn't just mean new courses and assignments, it also means that you can resume your favorite campus activities: reading clubs, sports teams, and bands.
There is no doubt that college bands are fun and popular on campus, and it's a good way to bond with friends. There are many ways for you to enjoy school music better this semester: invite new members, practice new songs, and upgrade your instruments.

Digital Pianos and Electronic Keyboards
Digital pianos and electronic keyboards are definitely the instrument to add if your band still doesn't have one. In its lightweight and compact body, an electronic keyboard can bring a lot of textures and patterns to your performance.
Various piano sounds
Digital pianos are a great alternative to traditional pianos, especially for small band rooms and dormitories. Well-built digital pianos and keyboards can almost perfectly replicate piano sounds. With fully-weighted or semi-weighted keys, they can also provide a playing experience very close to the hammer system on an acoustic piano.
Digital pianos are not only good for compact performance, but they can also make a great practice instrument for piano learners. Thanks to the small size, students can even bring them home or out on a trip.

Using piano on a band stage is more than just for stage effect. The melody of a piano can enrich the texture of the whole rock show. However, not all stages have the space for a classic acoustic piano. That's where upright pianos are needed.
An upright digital piano with 88 weighted keys and graded hammer actions, plus 3 pedals and a piano bench, only for $859.99
That's because many beginners could fall short when it comes to choosing the right guitar. Often the price of a guitar will compromise its functionalities, such as the class of body woods.
In other occasions, some beginners, without a lot of knowledge about guitars, can also choose less ideal guitars. For example, when someone prefers crispy sounds, his humbucker pickups will be a little disappointing.
