What Technologies Does Yamaha Use In Its Portable Keyboards?
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.)
Yamaha Education Suite teaches you to play by breaking down songs into individual components, like pitch and rhythm, and reconstructing them once mastered. You can practice one hand of a song alone while the instrument plays along with the other. WAITING mode pauses the accompaniment until you play the notes indicated on the display. YOUR TEMPO mode monitors playing and adjusts the tempo according to your accuracy. MINUS ONE mode lets you play the piano part start-to-finish, and gives you a grade at the end.
Join The Band
With a stunning variety of Voices and Styles, Yamaha Portable keyboards open the door to a world of musical enjoyment. Simply select your favorite sound, pick a style of music, and these keyboards will follow your playing like an orchestra following a conductor!
Most of the digital keyboards are easy to transport from room to room or gig to gig. The Piaggero line takes this to the extreme with a keyboard that easily transports under one arm, yet boasts piano-style keys, real piano sound, easy to navigate panel and can run off an adapter or batteries. Great sound without compromise. Amazing!
NoteStar (for iPad)

NoteStar is Yamaha's digital sheet music application for the iPad that features hands-free, smooth-flowing, easy-to-read digital sheet music accompanied by real audio backing tracks with vocals.
