I would be curious as to why they would recommend against a digital piano. As long as it has weighted keys, the difference in playing isn't all that significant and it is way more flexible. We have a digital piano and it is a lot more convenient to move around if needed and also for the others in the house who don't have to listen to hours of practice. I would think that she'd be able to practice a lot more if she can put on headphones (like later at night) and do it quietly without disturbing others. I recommend looking at Rolands, they are high quality and sound really nice.

One reason they don't like the keyboard is they don't have 88 keys. Some other reasons were how the keys are played (soft vs.hard) and how long the key is held down. Now maybe I should ask, is there a difference between a digital piano and a keyboard? I don't know. Next was the lack of foot pedals but it sounds like some keyboards/digital pianos have tried overcome that.

I'm not completely sure but I think a digital piano better represents a piano. Keyboards aren't designed to represent a piano, just produce a variety of sounds using a keyboard. For example, ours (Yamaha Clavinova)has 88 keys that are weighted (to provide the same feel) and a sustain pedal, but less options for sounds. Better versions will have all three pedals. On a Roland and Yamaha, I think the keys are built the same way in their digital and traditional, so that it feels the same or at least real similar. I'm in the military so I have not been able to justify a full size piano, but have been very pleased with our digital one. Also, where I bought mine they will take your digital on full price trade in towards a full size if you ever change your mind.
