After recording the main demo music, I decided to capture video snippets so you can see the Tyros5 from various angles as well as including some of the images provided by Yamaha.

How To #2 – Taking Screenshots from the Windows Operating System on a Mac Keyboard

article_top
As wonderful as the Mac OS X operating system can be, sometimes installing Windows on an Apple computer or laptop is essential – especially if you are a gamer or simply want to experience the best of both worlds.

New Yamaha DVD Tutorial: Masterclass – Produced by James Woodcock

DVD MasterclassThe latest Yamaha keyboard and digital piano tutorial DVD titled ‘Masterclass’ is now available to purchase, which was produced by myself and presented by Glyn Madden for the Yamaha Club. This is the seventh tutorial DVD I have created for the Yamaha Club and if you include the three promotional DVDs for Yamaha UK – then this is the tenth DVD total, so quite a milestone!

‘Masterclass! is the seventh title in our ‘Playing Yamaha’ series and, building on the success of the Easy Keyboard Library workshop series (featured in the Yamaha Club Magazine), the DVD sets out to show you how, with a few common sense ideas (and a bit of practice), you can turn a fairly simple lead-line and chord symbol music score into a professional sounding arrangement.

The DVD features lots of music – and lots of tips to pick up along the way. You’ll be surprised how a small change to the way you arrange and play your keyboard’s voices and styles can make a huge difference to the way it sounds.
