48 Key

I have recently bought an Akai MPK49. Is this a good keyboard for a beginner pianist?

I will be taking a class for piano soon and heard from a colleague that a good keyboard to start with would contain at least 60 keys. The MPK49 has 48 keys. Is this a poor choice to begin with? I have been in the synthesizing area of music for some time so the MPK49's other features are useful to me. However I am concerned if the 48 keys will affect my performance and learning negatively.

48 keys is just fine for a synthesizer. I've even seen some great ones with as little as 32. But if you want to learn piano, this will not be enough. You need something with at least 61 keys (5 octaves). And of course, more keys would be better, but 61 is a minimum.
