For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with The ONE Music Group to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a 61-key portable Light Keyboard that's designed to integrate with an iPhone or iPad to help you learn how to play music.

theonelightgold
Each key is backlit and touch responsive, lighting up in time with sheet music and video lessons to make it easy to pick up the basics and move on to more complex songs. It features 64 note polyphony, more than 128 GM tones and 20 preset notes, built-in speakers, an optional pedal socket, auxiliary in and out, microphone plug-in, USB midi output, and a collapsible built-in music stand.

Available in either onyx black or white gold, The One is ideal for beginners, but also well-suited to experienced players. Because many features are controlled via the app, there are no unnecessary buttons allowing it to be more portable than the average keyboard. It weighs 11 pounds and can be powered through an included power supply or six AA batteries for use on the go.

The app that accompanies the keyboard has more than 100 video lessons that users can complete at their own pace, and there are thousands of sheet music to learn. There are also some built-in games designed to make practicing melodies more fun.


The One Music Group also sells a full size Smart Piano that's able to connect to an iOS device, priced at $1,500, but the Light Keyboard is a smaller, more affordable alternative that can be purchased for $300.

This company is awful. I have the upright version of this piano (more expensive model). After a few months, the lightning cable stopped working. I've been emailing back and forth with them since March, but I still don't have a replacement. They've claimed to have sent more than one cable, and I did receive one, but it had the wrong connectors on both ends! The connector on the piano side is some kind of non-standard port, so I don't know how to get a cable on my own. If you win one of these, I guess that's fine. But DO NOT spend money on one of these.

Do you think this has weighted keys? I want it to feel like a piano
100% not. Think of this as a gateway item to playing keyboard.

Anything that helps encourage playing music is great! But it's not really meant for novices or above.
