What is the difference between an electric piano and a piano
Is electric steel the same as a piano? Can I take the same class? What is the difference between an electric steel and an electronic organ? Learning the piano, is it better to buy an electric steel or a piano?
First of all, to distinguish the two from the classification, the electric piano is an electroacoustic musical instrument, and the piano is a stringed instrument. The electric piano appeared in the 1960s and 1970s to replace the piano in some occasions (the electronic organ has a history of almost 100 years, so we can say that the electric piano is based on the technology of the electronic organ). Up to now, the piano is at least 300 years old.
The electric steel itself appeared to replace the piano. The main reasons are: The electric piano is light in weight, small in size and easy to handle.
General electric pianos weigh around 50kg, while ordinary household upright pianos range from 220kg to 280kg. Anyone who has bought a piano should know how difficult it is to carry a piano. After all, it cannot be dismantled and put up again.
Since the sound-generating structure of a traditional piano is replaced with a circuit board and speakers, the electric piano is much smaller in size and weight than a piano. It is more convenient in some places where the instrument needs to be transported frequently and the space is narrow, and the electric steel does not require tuning and excessive maintenance work.
Electric pianos can be upgraded to imitate a variety of timbres, which is similar to electric pianos. Electric pianos can imitate the timbres of a variety of musical instruments (there are more than 300 kinds) and use various built-in electric instrument functions. The timbre of the piano can only be achieved through performance skills, and cannot be imitated by other instruments.
The cost issue is a very critical factor. For ordinary mid-range electric pianos, the maximum is no more than 1w, and it is generally 5k~8k. And a brand-new piano practice piano, at least 1w5 to start, not counting the manual handling fee and various later maintenance costs. Therefore, electric pianos tend to be more attractive than pianos for those who focus on instrument function rather than performance skills.
But in any case, there is definitely no "daily practice" category for the first electric pianos. Because the sound technology of the electric piano itself is completely different from that of the piano, the touch of the keys is far less real than that of the piano, and the simulated sound is also different from the real one. And we all know that the most important thing in learning the piano is the touch and basic skills of the fingers, as well as the exercise of the learner's sensory ability when listening to music.
The middle and low-end electric pianos on the market do have major shortcomings in terms of keys and sound, but they are better at the price and easy to carry. If you want to temporarily use the electric piano instead of the piano for practice, you must pay attention to the basic skills of your fingers.
The piano plays a strong note, accelerating down from the beginning. The piano plays weak notes, and only after pressing the keys does it exert force to accelerate the pressure.

Pressing the keys down quickly on the piano will only produce pops, and using the keys down slowly on the piano will only produce muted sounds.
These are two completely different key touch techniques.
So people who only play the electric steel feel that they can't use force when they arrive at the piano. The reason is that they don't understand "Accelerate and Press Down", and those who only play the piano will be in a mess when they play the electric steel, because they use "Accelerate and Press Down".
Can I master both key touch skills, and then I can play it well on both electric steel and piano?
The piano is so close to the electric steel that the two touch techniques interfere with each other.
Playing both is harder. If you want to play the piano well, you should not practice with electric steel.
However, if you don't plan to play the piano and only want to master an instrument that can play music, it is not impossible to choose electric steel.
