In the last few months of 2011, I had the pleasure of working with the Yamaha Club in association with Yamaha UK to produce a free DVD. The DVD which is only available from select UK Yamaha dealers is currently either very low in stock or has even completely run out due to demand in the initial few months of availability.
Released today for sale is my latest tutorial DVD I have produced for the Yamaha Club with Glyn Madden.
Tips from the Top – Volume 1 is a first edition in a new series of DVDs I am creating with the Yamaha Club and Glyn Madden – covering Yamaha keyboards and digital pianos:
Yamaha artist Glyn Madden answers some of the most frequently asked questions in a treasury of hints and tips from the Yamaha Club’s archive – presented as a series of easy to follow mini-workshops and step-by-step demonstrations.
Yamaha Club Announces Upcoming Tutorial DVDs – Presented by Glyn Madden & Produced by James Woodcock
Glyn Madden, Editor of the Yamaha Club Magazine has announced that we are both working on a new series of tutorial DVDs for owners of Yamaha keyboards and CVP Clavinova digital pianos. Titled ‘Tips from the Top’, the new DVDs will be released this year hosted by Glyn Madden and produced by myself.
In “Tips from the top”, the latest tutorial DVD from Yamaha Club, Glyn Madden presents a selection of ‘mini-workshops’ based on the wealth of material contributed to Yamaha Club Magazine by top players and teachers over the years. Essentially, this collection of hints and tips provides the answers to several frequently asked questions – with a few extra ‘good ideas’ thrown in for good measure. Our hope is that you’ll find them useful when planning new performances for your Yamaha keyboard or Clavinova.
We have created a little promotional video to introduce the series, which includes a performance by Glyn on the current flagship keyboard by Yamaha – the Tyros4.
Late last year, Yamaha UK requested that the Yamaha Club and I produce a DVD presenting their latest flagship digital piano, the Clavinova CVP-509. The DVD included with the August / September 2010 of the Yamaha Club Magazine and other recent publications details the many wonderful features and musical qualities of this latest model.
This is my second promotional DVD following on from the earlier release covering the flagship keyboard the Yamaha Tyros3. I have been the editor for these promotional DVD offerings and also a set of three tutorial DVDs. In fact, publicly announced in the latest Yamaha Club Magazine is the fourth tutorial DVD I am working on with presenter Richard Bower. The DVD tutorials cover the basics of Yamaha keyboard and digital piano operation, ensuring that enthusiasts unlock the potential of their musical instrument.
