Wouldn’t a child who wants to become a concert pianist need to learn on the ‘standard’ keyboard?

Narrow keys have significant benefits for children to help them learn sound technique and not develop bad habits caused by a keyboard that is too big for their hands.

The benefits in terms of comfort, reduced risk of injury, enjoyment, reduced learning times and accessible repertoire, are significant for children as well as for many adults. Talented children with small hands, especially girls, would not need to be ‘held back’ waiting for their hands to grow. Many other instruments are available in different sizes, for example, children are encouraged to play a violin that suits them ergonomically.

Small children do not start off learning on an adult sized bicycle.
