Lookingfor an affordable beginner's keyboard for your home? The Yamaha PSR-E253 portable digital keyboard is packed full of great sounds and features, ideal for aspiring musicians who are just starting out., with incredible features and quality for such an affordable price range!

Use the on-board lesson feature, Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.), to learn the 100 built-in songs, or explore the 385 instrument Voices and 100 Styles to create your own music. The Aux line input turns the PSR-E253 into a speaker system for your MP3 player so you can listen to and play along with your music collection.

The PSR-E253 comes with a diverse array of 385 different voices. The grand piano voices in particular utilise stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of playing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound.

The PSR-E253 is equipped with a preset Master EQ that allows you to adjust the nuances of the keyboard sound with settings such as Bright or Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you like.

The lesson function offers a total of nine stages—three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands, helping beginning players to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice and improve, and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.

Connect your audio player to the PSR-E253 and listen to, or play along with, your favourite music through the instrument's speakers.

Weighing in at around 4kg, the PSR-E253 is light enough to take anywhere with ease. It can even run on batteries for live performances when you're out and about.
