    Comments about ION Audio Piano Apprentice:

    The Piano Apprentice keyboard was easy to set up, even without using the included instructions. My 11-year-old daughter was able to get it running within a few minutes of opening it up. Her only complaint is that the Piano Guy goes way too fast when showing how to play a song. She has learned how to play several songs and is very pleased with her progress. I would definitely buy this product again.
