Proms in the Garden
If you want to recreate an outdoor musical prom, then you can! All you need is a digital piano, an extension lead, and some good weather. Obviously don’t ever take your digital piano in damp weather, but when it is totally dry outside you can always run an extension lead into your garden and plug in! Then, all you need to do is get all your friends round to your house with their picnics and blankets and play the night away. If you are worried that your piano won’t be loud enough for all of your friends to hear you out in the garden then it is super easy to connect an additional amplifier to a digital piano such as a Kawai KDP-110, or a Chase CDP-345 and many other models.
Indoor Summer Concert
If you are cursed with poor weather this summer then move our concert inside! Digital pianos are very portable so it will be easy to move your instrument into your front room or living room if it isn’t already there. Just make sure you get enough practise in before the big concert day!
If you are in need of a new digital piano then have a look at what Chase Direct have to offer. Chase Direct is one of Britain’s biggest digital piano retailers and stock pianos from leading brands such as Kawai, Yamaha, and their own brand Chase pianos.
