Is this the year to encourage a musician in your family with a new Casio digital piano? I know from first-hand experience that it is not enough to have the instrument in your home … you also must take lessons and practice to become a piano player. However, you still need the instrument. Casio makes a wide selection of great pianos and keyboards to choose from. Let us know what you are looking for in a new musical instrument and you might win an amazing new Casio keyboard.

What is the difference between a piano and a keyboard

You’ve heard about digital pianos and heard about digital keyboards, but do you know the difference? These musical instruments look similar and serve similar functions in that they can be used to learn how to play and used to entertain after you have learned how to play. However, if you are considering getting an instrument in your home, as many parents do once their children reach a certain age or demonstrate some aptitude for tickling the ivories for more than just annoying parents, siblings, and pets, then understanding the difference is likely important.

We asked one of our musician writers, Clinton Ryder, to explain the differences in an article on the Best Buy blog. I suggest you start your musical purchase journey by reading that article. Of course if you are not sure what kind of instrument your child should start with, that article won’t help you much (read this article instead). Return here afterwards for a chance to give this great digital piano a wonderful new home.

Is this your year to add an instrument to your home

I don’t buy a new instrument every year, but still consider every year a good year for a new instrument. Usually it’s a guitar—and I have two that I bought from Best Buy!—but I bought a Casio digital piano a couple years ago (also from Best Buy) so my daughters had something to play when they visit. I chose a digital piano over an analog one because it’s easy to move from one room to another, it takes less space, it can be played loudly or even silently (with headphones plugged in), and it has the versatility of multiple voices if someone wants to experiment.

Many parents are considering purchasing an instrument for a child at this time of year. You will find a huge selection at Best Buy. You don’t have to worry about choosing the wrong instrument either. My kids started on piano when they were really young, then later learned guitar, drums, and various wind and brass instruments. Learning any instrument opens the gateway to musical experimentation as they grow up. This contest is just one way to get them started.

How to enter

Entering this contest is easy and you can enter in three different ways.

  1. Visit the musical instruments page at Best Buy, then in a comment below tell us the name of the instrument (with either the model number or the link) that you are interested in, and tell us why you like that instrument.
  2. In a comment below the “Pianos vs Keyboards” article, tell us one of the differences between digital pianos and keyboards that you learned from that article.
  3. For up to two (2) additional entries, create a public post on a social media channel (one entry per channel!) sharing with your friends and followers that you are entering to win a new Casio piano; include the hashtag #BestBuyCasioContest, so we can find your post, and include one of the pictures showing on this article. Then return here and tell us in a comment below on which channel you posted it and the name of your channel (since many people use pseudonyms) so that we can check and verify your entry. You can use any social media channel (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, etc.), but the post must be public so we can verify it is there.

What you can win

At the end of this contest, we will randomly select one winner from all eligible entries to receive a new Casio CDP-S350 piano from Best Buy.

This contest runs from July 27th to Aug 11th.

Remember you can enter in three different ways. Music is usually a shared experience so a contest about musical instruments should also be shared. Let your friends and family know that Best Buy has the best contests and everyone should be entering for a chance to win great tech.

Win a Casio Digital Piano Contest Rules and Regulations

Good Luck.


  1. Digital pianos have fewer sound choices than the electric keyboards, but the digital’s sound tends to be of a higher quality and resolution.

  2. Casio PX-770 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano – Black
    Model Number: PX770BK
    I like that this is a full piano with pedals and weight to the keys.
    Prefect addition to our music room.

  3. I like the Casio LK-S250. Looks like it has a lot of integration with more modern means of learning to play (through the light up keys, and compatibility with Chordana). I haven’t got the time or money for instructor led lessons at the moment, so this seems really appealing to me

  4. I love the Yamaha P-125 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano with On-Stage Keyboard Stand.It has weighed keys like a real piano,

  5. I like the Alesis Harmonyll 62 electric keyboard model # HARMONYY61MKll.I thinkit would be great to play at get togethers where people could sing along old tunes.

  6. I am interested in the Kramer Focus Electric Guitar(VT-211S) – Red. I like this guitar because it has a mahogany body for a more balanced tone.

  7. I would love to win the Casio PX-770 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano – Black so I can refresh the piano learning skills which I developed as a young girl! And this particular product as Casio is a top-notch brand.
    One difference between a digital piano and an electric keyboard is that a piano has a full 88-key range, while a keyboard can have anything from 88 keys to 25 keys.

  8. I would like the Yamaha P-125 88-Key Weighted Hammer Action Digital Piano with Power Supply & Sustain Pedal – Black to give to my wife as she is a singer-songwriter. what I like about it, is that it has a full 88 keys, programmed bass and drum beats and a usb connection.

  9. I grew up playing the piano; as I got older I learned how to play other instruments as well.
    I’ve always had a fascination with the drums but never got around to playing them (especially because of how loud they can get).

    That’s why I’ve got my eye on the Yamaha Digital Drum Kit (DTX452K) ( With this drum kit I can practice to my heart’s content without disturbing the neighbours!

  10. I am interested in the Yamaha PSRF52 61 – Key Electric Keyboard. I like this one because it is small enough that it won’t take up unnecessary room. This one would suit my young grandson.
