If you opt for an electronic keyboard, I highly recommend the products below. You'll need headphones, a sustain pedal, USB cords to connect with a computer, and good lighting.
Piano students also need a quality piano method series that keeps the student's interest and provides a step-by-step roadmap from the first piano lesson to maintaining momentum for continued piano learning.
I recommend any of the methods below, as well as the piano music books for added fun.

Digital Piano Keyboards & Accessories
An advantage of playing piano music on a keyboard is the use of headphones. This allows the player to enjoy music regardless of their schedule, without disturbing others.
All these are also compatible for use with computer music-making. The joy of creating digital piano music is exponentially greater with the use of virtual piano samples. The quality of piano sounds available for direct download is impressive.
Digital pianos, which are made with a stand built-in, are great options for piano learning. They typically have excellent weighted-key action, 3-pedals connected (versus only one sustain pedal), and generally have good quality piano sampled sounds built-in.
See my 'Music Making Accessories' section below for additional items for home studio-based music exploration.

Piano Method & Technique Books
I started teaching with Alfred and Bastien piano methods. Many of my students enjoyed and were successful using these. I gravitated toward using Faber & Faber and found great success with my piano students' level of engagement and joyful progress with these publications.
You'll also find some great editions of classical music and technique books here. If you're interested in learning piano or progressing to the next level, all these books are recommended and enjoyable learning paths.
