How Many Keys Does A Full-Sized Piano/Keyboard Have?

And would it make much difference for a starter if i bought a piano/keyboard that wasn't full sized to practice on?

    88 keys. It will not matter if you start off on something smaller but try to get touch sensitive keys ie. play soft and loud according to how hard you press the keys.

    Weighted keys usually only come with the full size keyboard but if you can get that too, even better,.

    A full-sized piano keyboard has 88 keys. I would not recommend a spinet for a new player.

    88, some new grands in Tasmania have 96, my piano teacher John Reese from men at work told me....

    I would say you'll find if you go for non full sized, it is limited because alot of classical song play up really high and low on the piano and little keyboards run out of room, which is a pain.... me and my friends at school all decided a full sized piano is better.

    88. Yes, a 76 or a 64 key will do for practice.

    Let one set comprise: 5 black keys and 7 white keys(CDEFGAB)

    No. of octaves = 7

    Therefore no. of keys = 7*5 +7*7 = 84

    However, there are additional notes: The highest note "C", and the lowest notes B, Bb, A. That makes 4 more.

    Therefore TOTAL no. of keys = 84 + 4 = 88 keys
