48 polyphony is not high for a digital piano, however for a keyboard at this price range, this is high enough for you to play most pieces without dropping notes.
110 songs that are built in are enough for you to enjoy playing along or learning, using its Step Up Lesson system. With 150 built-in rhythms, you will have endless time playing and enjoying music.
The lesson shows which keys to press and fingering, too. Voice instructions on fingering is available as well.
Auto accompaniment is an interesting feature where you play a chord on your left hand and the keyboard automatically adds bass and harmony accompaniment parts. It is fun to play as it is like having your own band.
The manual has fingering and some chords listed, which can be handy. It is very helpful to learn chords if you want to play different pieces freely. Piano for All is a very good course that explains chords in a logical way if you are looking for something cost-effective to learn chords.
Casio CTK-2400 Keyboard is a very affordable keyboard with quality and versatility for beginners. With so many voices, rhythms, songs, and a self-learning program built-in, you can enjoy playing and learning.
If you are looking for something similar to a real acoustic piano, look for a digital piano that has 88 weighted keys.
