A Casio electronic keyboard for Richard who is passionate about music

Posted Nov 28, 2023
Richard enjoys music because it helps him relax and be creative. He would like to play music for the home and for his foster mother. He is such an artistic guy and music feeds his creativity. He would like to play some holiday music when he sees his half siblings to make them think of happy times.
