Casio SA-76 - the best choice for children and beginner pianists
I can’t imagine my life without music, and it is very difficult for an inexperienced person to explain how much it means to me. It's not just about what I'm listening to on an iPod or on a computer.

Casio SA-76 - the perfect learning tool
We are all “born from childhood”, and I am immensely grateful to my parents, who made me pore over the instrument for many hours. They taught me not only to complete the work I started, but also to please the audience with the result of their work.
I am sure that in my family, children will learn to play from early childhood. I understand perfectly well that this may not be easy, but it's worth it. I can judge by the way music lessons affected me.
And although it is still not the time, but I have already looked at the perfect tool for my kids. Among a large number of pianos for children, Casio attracted my attention, due to the fact that the company has long established itself in the production of reliable entry-level instruments. Casio SA-76 may not be the best digital piano for beginners, but it makes sense to stop your gaze.
Review: Wonderful Digital Mini Piano
The first thing you notice about this model is its extremely small size. This piano has only 44 keys, which is ideal for any young pianist without entering into a stupor from many registers and notes. A small set of keys gives the beginner the ability to correctly put their hands. The weight of this mini-tool is less than 2 kg, and the compact dimensions of the piano (63.5 cm in length and about 22 cm in width) allow you to store it in a drawer.
The black Casio SA-76 case is snugly placed on a light brown backing. On both edges of the keyboard are two 1.2 W speakers between which there is a control panel. The creators of this mini-keyboard managed to compactly install a large number of buttons. Here are 100 tones, 50 rhythms and 10 built-in songs. A small liquid crystal display helps the user to control the keyboard.
Variety of Mini Pianos
The small Casio SA-76 offers a large selection of features for beginner musicians. The number of tones in it is much larger than in most digital pianos. The instrument produces a very good sound, which confirms Casio's reputation as a manufacturer of quality musical instruments. However, this model does not support Linear Morphing or AiR (acoustic and smart resonator) tone generation technology, which, however, is not surprising.
Here you will find the 8-note polyphony, which I generally see for the first time in all the time of reviews. Previously, it seemed to me that 32-note polyphony was the smallest, so this might puzzle the buyer. But, considering that the piano has only 44 keys, this should not become a global problem, unless, of course, your five-year-old child wants to play Beethoven.
This instrument contains fifty wonderful rhythmic compositions that help the young musician to give a measured dimension to the work. There are:
- other modern rhythmic options.
In addition to this, you will find tunes that a beginner can use. These practical tunes introduce a novice pianist to a variety of musical styles. There are also five different drum sounds.
SA-76 has its own training rehearsal program, which is specifically designed for the setting of right and left hands. You can figure out how to use this or that function using the Casio SA-76 Owner's Manual.
Limited range of functions and connectivity
Due to the small size of the tool, you will not find much in SA-76. There are no functions:
- double overlay.
Those who are looking for all of the above should pay attention to tools at a higher level. This model does not have a USB port. There is only a linear input / output for headphones, which is a necessary element for any student.
