Meeting with Yamaha Corporation of Japan – Future Development of Keyboards

In July 2011, Glyn Madden (Editor of the Yamaha Club Magazine) welcomed a contingent of designers from Yamaha’s Japanese team to their home, which included Mr. Eiji Murata (Assistant Manager of EKB Product Development Department) and Ms. Kyoko Ohno. I was also invited to this fact finding meeting due to my years of involvement with Yamaha products including owning an independent enthusiast website and producing related tutorial and promotional DVDs. Discussions took place to share ideas and thoughts regarding Yamaha keyboards and digital pianos.

…James and I (Glyn Madden) are always happy to be invited to take part in these discussions because it gives us an opportunity to pass back to Yamaha feedback about its instruments that we’ve gathered from members – both of Yamaha Club and, until very recently, the YPKO forum.
