A SOLID INVESTMENT FOR MUSIC DEVELOPMENT

With Roland’s highly respected sound, action, technology features, and build quality, the RP-501R brings professional-level performance at a very attractive price. This handsome instrument is a perfect choice for a young family on a budget, or a piano educator looking for a quality instrument for their lesson studio. The compact design combines space-saving efficiency with traditional appointments, including an integrated music rack and a retractable lid that covers the keyboard when not in use. With your choice of Contemporary Black or Simulated Rosewood finishes, you’re able to select the right look to perfectly compliment any environment or decor.

PREMIUM TONE AND TOUCH FOR LEARNING PIANO THE RIGHT WAY

The RP-501R features superior quality that easily outranks other instruments in its price class, providing a bedrock foundation that will last through many years of musical growth and piano enjoyment. Roland’s renowned SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine delivers the rich, expressive sound of an acoustic grand, offering an authentic piano experience that inspires young students to practice and learn. The newly developed PHA-4 Standard Keyboard inherits the functions, appearance, and Ivory Feel texture of keyboards found in our flagship instruments, and includes the very latest sensing technology to take full advantage of SuperNATURAL Piano’s enormous tonal range. The RP-501R also has three integrated pedals like an acoustic grand, including a Progressive Damper Action pedal that offers continuous response for traditional playing techniques.

INTELLIGENT ACCOMPANIMENT FOR DEVELOPING RHYTHM AND ENSEMBLE SKILLS

Thanks to its onboard rhythm function, the RP-401R lets students play and practice music along with a beautiful backing ensemble. This helps build timing skills in a way that’s far more engaging than the standard metronome function, and also introduces them to the exciting experience of performing along with a full band. The RP-501R’s rhythms are incredibly easy to use, providing intelligent backing that automatically follows the chords played on the keyboard. 72 different rhythm styles open players up to a diverse variety of musical genres, from rock and jazz to Latin, reggae, modern electronic styles, and many others. Playing with rhythms also offers a great opportunity to explore making music with the RP-401R’s generous selection of non-piano sounds, such as organ, guitar, brass, synths, and more.

FREE ROLAND APPS HELP MOTIVATE KIDS TO PLAY THE PIANO

Roland’s free apps for Apple iOS devices provide a unique way to motivate a child’s interest in playing and practice. With the Air Performer app, they can play along with favorite songs in the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch wirelessly* through the RP-401R’s sound system. The Piano Partner app for iPad includes Flash Card, an interactive music program that kids will love, plus an intuitive graphical interface for selecting tones, songs, and rhythms in the RP-501R. Flash Card develops listening and reading skills in a fun way by challenging the student to identify notes shown on the iPad’s display and sounded from the piano, with awards given after five challenges. Piano Partner also includes DigiScore Lite, which displays the RP-401R’s onboard songs as sheet music on your iPad. Available from the Apple App Store, these apps make it easy to use today’s mobile technology to energize a child’s piano development.

ENHANCED LEARNING AND ENJOYMENT THROUGH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

For most modern families, the powerful digital technologies inside the RP-401R provide numerous practical benefits over any acoustic piano. First and foremost, the digital RP-401R never needs tuning and always sounds perfect, eliminating the annual costs that come with regular maintenance for an acoustic piano. Convenient features for practice and fun include a built-in metronome, a recorder for capturing and sharing performances, and a Twin Piano mode that splits the keyboard so that two people can play side by side. You can easily adjust the volume of the piano’s speakers, and there’s even a Volume Limit function for setting a maximum level to keep your kids from playing too loudly. Another major benefit of a digital piano is the ability to use headphones to practice without disturbing others; the RP-401R’s unique Headphones 3D Ambience effect greatly enriches the piano experience during these private sessions, making it feel as though the sound is emanating from the instrument itself.
