Keyboard: 1. keys - they are plastic keys without hammer action i.e every key feels the same from lower octave to higher. 2. It is Electronic - There are plugins loaded of so many instruments, beat patterns, recorder, Chord dictionary ,Digital Audio Workstation ( you don't need a computer to program music ) this feature is mostly for higher end keyboard. 3. It is portable - can be carried anywhere 4. Pedal - Most come with two pedal inputs where you can connect the sustain pedal which sustains the instrument when pressed 5. Can be connected to a computer and can be used with the software to program music. 6. Detects media device (USB, Floppy) - Even mid range keyboards come with this option These are just basic functions on a keyboard, i'm sure there are lot many Piano: 1. They have a hammer action i.e the keys are hard at the lower end and as you progress it will gradually become lighter. These keys are made up of natural wood and they are long. They have a mechanism where the wood absorbs the hand sweat when playing for a longer duration without slipping. 2. The feel ( Emotion ) can only be felt when played on a piano - no other digital plugins can replace a real piano - Never! 3. They come with three pedals, I'm not explaining about pedals now but they again are used to relate different dimensions of emotions and the feel of a pianist. 4. They are acoustic, non portable, stationary. a piece a wood for your home. 5. There is no support for anything.No chord dictionary, no recorded no nothing at all. It is just a plain pure piano sound. Conclusion: Keyboard is good to learn and practice, but Piano will be your best friend for life! read less

Keyboard is an electronic instrument. The sound is produced by electronic circuitry. The piano is an acoustic instrument where the sound is produced by felt covered hammers striking the strings. Hope this answers your question.

A piano is acoustic, and the keyboard is digital. The feel of a western classic can be obtained by playing an acoustic piano. The Electronic Keyboard has a lot of options like different voices, style, recording, and a load of functions. While coming into playing these instruments, in Piano, we play a melody using both hands while in the keyboard; we play chords using left hand and melody using the right hand, thats the essential part. When we move on to higher grades, we tend to play the melody in the left hand also, but the use of rhythm will be there.

Acoustic and Electronic. Acoustic Instruments have natural sound and need no electrical power to operate. Pianos, acoustic guitars, drums , stringed instruments like violin , wind instruments like flute are all acoustic instruments and are the purest form of music as they include no added digital effects. Electric instruments like keyboard and electric guitar allow you to add digital tones effects and are also usually preferred for stage and band performances as they allow you to add on multiple effects (the tone is not a natural one). This is the reason even traditional instruments like sitar now have electric versions read less
