This is a sponsored Casio Casiotone CT-S300 post in partnership with Casio America, Inc. All opinions expressed are my own.
Back-to-school music planning should start with the Casio Casiotone CT-S300! I know, back to school planning seemingly starts earlier every year, and this year is no exception! Many schools started as early as July! In New York, it’s a little different than most places…we typically start after Labor Day. However, you always have to think about getting prepared!
Whether this school year is in person or virtual, Casio products have you covered! You can rest easy that your young scholars have all the gear they need to succeed. This keyboard is there for them to hone music skills at home and rock the school year!
Casio Casiotone CT-S300
This is just a fantastic piece of musical equipment. It really is. My kids literally wait to take turns playing it. I wish I knew how to play it like they do! It’s a high quality machine at a great value, so it’s perfect for practicing, having fun, or performing. It pretty much does everything you really would need, for an MSRP of only $149.99!!!
Easy To Play
When it comes to my kids, I really need to keep it easy and simple, otherwise there’s a high probability of them losing interest. That’s just the facts, so I need to keep that in mind. It needs to be easy and quick…this is the generation today.
The CT-S300 really is super easy and fun to play, just ask my daughter! A lot of it can be attributed to its excellent LCD display and intuitive controls like the “My Setup” button, which quickly recalls your favorite sounds and settings. These controls make it very easy for just about anyone to get up and running quickly…like a pro!
What good is playing music if you, your friends, and family can’t easily enjoy it? The CT-S300 sports some great built-in speakers,a 1/8” headphone output and a 1/8” audio input. What does that mean? Well, it means players can really enjoy sharing the tunes with everyone!
Of course, when mom and dad need a little quiet (zoom call, sanity check, whatever), the player can also just plug in headphones for quiet play at any time. The 1/8″ audio input lets you play along with music from your favorite device.
Easy to Manage
One of the things my daughter loves the most about the Casio Casiotone CT-S300 is that’s it’s just easy. Whether she needs to take it to school or a friend’s house, the keyboard is made to be portable. This baby boasts a slim chassis that really doesn’t take over a room, despite it featuring 61 full-size keys. It also has a really great, built-in carrying handle.
Loads of Beautiful Music
There is so much to play and listen to with the CT-S300! Players can explore 400 great sounding Tones and 77 accompaniment Rhythms with 61 full size touch response keys. That’s awesome, plus there’s a pitch bend wheel and 10 types of reverb for even more ways to make music. My kids go nuts with this and it really builds their love for the instrument and for music in general.
There’s even a Dance Music Mode that lets you easily create and remix EDM tracks. Select a style, and use the keys to trigger drum loops, basslines, synth parts, effects, transitions and more. It’s really cool, even I can play something great with this!! Rave anyone? Just kidding, but it’s pretty cool for a keyboard anyway, isn’t it??? Yes, yes it is.
So More Music in the App
Connect to the free Chordana Play iOS/Android app and take your music further, learning how to play one of 50 songs from the loaded MIDI files. Easily connect the USB port connects to any Mac/PC/iOS/Android device with no drivers needed.
The Chordana Play app displays the music score and piano roll notation for built-in songs and MIDI files. Select which tracks to play with your left and right hands, slow the tempo down, transpose to a key that is easier to play, and really learn the way you need to learn, at your pace.
You can take three-step lessons using either the app’s keyboard or a USB-connected musical instrument keyboard. Select from 128 kinds of tone quality. Plus, a scoring system lets you keep track of your progress.
You can really practice anytime, anywhere with Chordana Play. It’s been such an awesome teacher for the kids. Plus…it’s an app…so the kids are automatically drawn to it. LOL.
Music For The Mind and Soul
Listening to music is such a wonderful part of life. Who doesn’t love it? While there is so much to love about listening to music, it seems to be even better when you can play some of it yourself! Again, I wouldn’t know unfortunately, but time and time again we all hear about all the benefits of music. It’s good for the mind, the body, and the soul. So why not promote it in your kids’ lives??? I know we do and I think the kids really appreciate that!
The ultra-compact CT-S300 lets you make music wherever and whenever you want. Just have Just have six AA batteries on hand and you are off and running!!
