The Alesis Recital is a full-featured digital piano with the features to make it easy to learn, teach, and perform at any level.

The 88 full-sized semi-weighted keys include adjustable sensitivity to fit your playing style, with built-in speakers and effects, so you're ready to start playing right out of the box. Recital includes a power adapter, so you can plug it into the wall and play all day, but it also can go mobile running on six of your own D cell batteries.

Where the Recital really sets itself apart is with its teaching tools. In addition to Split mode for different keyboard voices on the left and right sides, a Lesson mode separates the keyboard into two areas with the same pitch and voice. That means a student can sit next to their teacher with both playing the same notes, for a simpler learning experience.

But what about when an instructor isn't available?

Recital is compatible with Skoove, an online piano-instruction service. Skoove listens to your performance to give real-time feedback, with adjustable tempo settings to match your skill level. Better yet, Recital isn't just compatible with the standard Skoove: it also comes with a free three-month subscription to Skoove Premium to unlock all of the lessons and songs.

Finally, when you know you're a virtuoso, the Recital has a sustain pedal input, USB-MIDI connectivity, and RCA stereo output, so you can expand your keyboard's capabilities to meet your own.

The Alesis Recital is everything you need to get from fumbling in your living room to finessing up on stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many built in voices are included?

The Recital features 5 realistic voices: Acoustic Piano Electric Piano Organ Synth Bass

Can I split my keyboard with multiple voices?

Customize the voices by combining any two at once in Layer Mode for a full, rich tone. They can also be assigned to only the left or right hands in Split Mode. You can even add adjustable Reverb and Chorus to further tailor your sound.

Does this digital keyboard include education features?

The Alesis Recital has a ""Lesson Mode"" feature which divides the 88 keys into two zones with the same pitch and voice. This gives the student and teacher the ability to easily watch each other and play together without having to take turns.

What type of connections are included?

In addition to the 1/4"" sustain pedal and headphone inputs, the Recital features stereo RCA outputs to connect to a recorder, mixer, amplifier or other sound system, as well as a USB-MIDI output for connecting to a computer and using educational software or virtual plugins.

Despite the fact that I own multiple pianos including a Yamaha grand, I was quite excited to try this Alesis Recital electric piano. Alesis makes a lot of high quality music gear (I have one of their MIDI controllers), and a full size piano with weighted keys for around two hundred bucks sounded good to me.

Buy one for your young child, and let them play with it before hiring a tutor.

Bought for my daughter as a present. It took me thousands of dollars in tutors to teach my daughter and son to hate the piano and violin and clarinet, and years of forced practice, but I succeeded. Guess what; with daughter she started at 3 on the piano, and took lessons until 10. Just the other day, 11 years later, she asked for an electronic piano. Son bought his own electric guitar; he is 18 and practices everyday.

Excellent for casual use at home. Not for stage or concerts.

I spent many years, traveling as a Piano Entertainer. While the Alesis Recital would not be adequate for reditions of the Jerry Lee Lewis “Pumping Piano,” Elton John’s “Honky Cat,” or Billy Joel’s “Angry Young Man Prelude,” it is more than adequate for composing original music in a relaxed and deliberate manner in this stage of my life while I work on re-arranging my library of original songs. It is my professional opinion, that the Aleis Recital is an excellent first piano for a young beginner that might not yet have the finger strength to operate fully weighted keys.

High quality product without frills

Happy parents! I purchased this as a starter piano because of the price point hoping that it would deliver adequate sound. I am so glad that I purchased this one. I tested out the Williams Legato which I found to be lacking the real piano timbre. This baby sounds like a real piano. I also wanted a keyboard with minimal distractions for my son. There are only a few buttons on top which minimizes off-task behavior. Great price for high quality product.

Pretty Good Piano for A Pretty good Price.

I needed a new keyboard piano after my old 61 key broke after a long while. I also wanted an 88 key keyboard just so that I could have all of the options I needed when playing a high or low song. After reading the reviews, though I was a bit skeptical, I concluded that this piano would be perfect just to do a little practicing on. After waiting anxiously for well over a week, It finally arrived, and boy was I exstatic! After ripping open the packaging, And setting up, I was dissapointed to find how short the power chord was, but I was still excited, nonetheless. The piano plays beautifully, but I noticed that whilst using the synth voice, buzzing occurs when you enter certain notes. You can barely hear it but it’s there, and it’s a little annoying, but nothing to be TOO upset about considering the price. I did too notice that the keys are pressure sensitive, but not weighted at all, which I was a little dissapointed at again. But as I said, great piano for begginers.

anything would sound good through this

I realize the volume is low and the keys are not quite weighted properly, but for $200 this is a killer deal. I bought this for a friend and “bench tested” it, then ran it through a P A system with a 750 watt (RMS) stereo P A head and four Altec 421A’s mounted in folded horn cabinets with two Altec 511B horns. Yes, anything would sound good through this! But it didn’t sound good; it sounded great! I mean, like the old Yamaha Baby Grands! I’m a guitar player/bass player and did bar gigs for decades, so I know a little about sound production equipment. I probably wouldn’t routinely gig with this, but for a learner or a not so great keyboard guy like me, it’s ab fab. And…..It’s available from Amazon!

Great value. A full 88 keys is wonderful for the price. The only reason I didn’t give it 5/5 is because the speakers could be better. You don’t have to turn the volume very high at all before you start hearing them struggle.

so good. Have had this keyboard for a few weeks

So far, so good. Have had this keyboard for a few weeks, and really like it. The keys are fairly weighted, which was surprising for this price range. Great deal on a full 88-key keyboard.
