Casio's portfolio of electronic musical instruments, such as the PX-S1000 and CT-X700, include features that encourage creativity to flourish in young musicians and cultivate a life-long love of music.
The latest addition to Casio's well-known Privia digital piano line, the PX-S1000, features the AiR Sound Source which delivers the natural tone of a grand piano with string and damper resonance, and even includes mechanical damper and key sounds, in a slim and stylish design.

With such a slim profile, students and music educators can easily enjoy playing the piano without taking up a lot of space, even in the tightest of classroom spaces. The PX-S1000 also includes updated technology including a Bluetooth audio playback feature, allowing students to connect their device and play along with their favorite songs, as well as duet mode for collaborative playing between students.
For piano students who are advanced beginners, the CT-X700 includes upgraded technology and sound quality at an affordable price. Beginners can choose from a library of 100 built-in songs and easily learn to play them at their own individual pace with Casio's Voice Fingering Guide and Step-Up Lesson System, which display proper fingering and notation. Featuring the new AiX Sound Source*1, the CT-X700 faithfully reproduces the appealing sound of acoustic instruments such as guitars, drums, basses, brass, wind instruments, string ensembles and more, as well as subtle nuances and gestures specific to each sound.
