I would like to start learning to play the piano, and since I do not have the space nor the funds for a complete piano, I would like to buy a keyboard instead.
My questions: How many keys do I need as a beginner? Do I really need 88 keys?
Are weighted keys and something like velocity-sensitive keys (keys that play louder when hit harder) useful or maybe even necessary?
How much money should I calculate with for a keyboard that suits my needs?
Thank you in advance for answering and sorry if this might be a duplicate of another question, but I could not find anything.
