Yamaha Club Masterclass 2006

Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, I was invited to the Yamaha Club Masterclass 2006 in Sheffield, to see Ryan Edwards host a very useful set of lectures aimed at the beginner on day 1, and the more advanced on day 2. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as it is the first time I have attended anything like this with the Yamaha Club Magazine with such a personal connection, as the group was nicely sized with 25 people, allowing everyone to get more involved with questions and conversation.


For me, the most rewarding aspect was meeting some of the members from my own enthusiast website (Yamaha Personal Keyboard Owner) and getting their feedback. Everyone seemed to be getting a very rewarding experience by being part of the community I have set up online, which is just great news. With over 3000 members now registered, the community is becoming vast and is proving to be a superb resource for Yamaha keyboard and digital piano enthusiasts, which is of course was the original idea.

Thanks to Glyn Madden (Editor of the Yamaha Club Magazine) for the invitation and to Ryan for his fantastic presentations, which I am sure for those who attended, learned plenty to go back home and try.
