A new page in the history of music
Making the joys of playing music available to as many people as possible.
This was the concept that led to the birth of the CASIOTONE 201 digital keyboard back in January 1980.
Since then, CASIO has continually pushed the envelope to create innovative new musical instruments
that totally rewrite conventional wisdom and concepts.
1984 saw the release of the CZ-101 high-performance synthesizer, followed a year later by the CPS-201,
CASIO's ﬁrst digital piano. These original models have since evolved into our current wide selection of
CELVIANO Series digital pianos, and the stylish Privia Series.
CASIO also has been contributing to improving the keyboards through the development of such innovative
new features as the Key Lighting Keyboard, which literally guides you through songs note-by-note.
Now, to mark our 30th year in the ﬁeld, CASIO is proud to announce that we are preparing to
take digital musical instruments to the next level.
CASIO is ﬁrmly committed doing what it takes to improve digital musical instruments step
by step in order to make it possible for people the world over to experience
the charm of music and the joys of performing it.
