hello pit,
i am looking for a piano or feyboard that has colored keys for my mom. she is dyslexic and has a very hard time learning when something is in black and white. she learned a very long time ago that is she writes on colored paper with a colored pen she learned alot faster.

she has shown promise playing the piano when she was little but then the dyslexia got in the way, so i want to get her a colored piano in the hopes it will help.

if anyone has ever seen one of these or can point me in the right direction it will be much appreciated.

thanks

It shouldn't be difficult to get a normal one and use coloured sticky back plastic to cover at least part of the individual keys. May work out cheaper.

this is probably your best bet, just stick coloured dots or labels on the keys, or buy coloured marker pens or something, it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper than a specialised keyboard like that.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

hoping to avoid that but looking like that will be my best option

TS, why not colour the keys yourself?
You say you don't want to? What apart from that it looks maybe less perfect, is against it?
Can I ask what you want from her, that you go trough all this trouble?

wuv you ts =]

i'd say the easiest way would be to use sticky labels as previously suggested. Alternatively you could make a scale out of card the size of the piano keys and colour in the different keys (i dunno if you've seen those cards beginners use with the notes).

Or it might be possible to remove the keys and colour them yourself although i'm not sure if that'll mess the harmonics up or anything, i'm not very good with pianos tbh, sorry. =/

That is the political answer, what is the real reason?
and btw. I am not aware of any company selling coloured keyboards, you might want to google it.

Don't think that praying will help at all
but I googled for you too and I can't find anything.

If you do find something like that, odds are it will be one of those children's keyboards that sounds like ass. I would also suggest getting a proper keyboard and coloring the keys yourself.
You can remove the keys and have them spray painted or something.
#18
hmm, those may be hard to find, you may have to custom make it.

Have you searched google yet, what did it tell you?

edit:
Its probably not what you are looking for but I found this

You should just get different colored tapes for each key. That would be pretty convenient and cheap.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Would it be possible for you to remove the keys and paint them without damaging it?
