Yamaha & Other Videos
I wish we had a whole course based entirely on videos. But we don't. In time, I may be able to add short videos demonstrating various steps involved in doing things on your Yamaha keyboard. But I'm not there yet. However, that doesn't mean we can't have some videos for you to watch. In fact, you will find 8 hours of videos in this section!
Yamaha Keyboard Demos
There are a number of keyboard demonstrations that have been released by Yamaha Corp. You can find some of these on official Yamaha web sites, but those tend to focus on the current keyboard models. However, a lot of the videos for earlier keyboards have been posted on YouTube or elsewhere on the internet. These are generally done by professional Yamaha demonstrators and they are meant to show off some of the key features of the arranger keyboards. Some of the demonstrator videos were done while the demonstrator was showing off the keyboard at a trade show or music store.
For your convenience, I have provided links to these videos for many of the latest keyboards. Just click on the keyboard you want to see in the list of keyboards shown in the left-side navigation bar. Since these keyboards are so similar, you may very well find useful videos on keyboards other than your own. The recent CVP-509 videos, for example, include a number of short videos about features included in most of these keyboards.
There are some tutorial videos available. AndrecJC created a number of useful tutorials for the PSR-S900, which will also be helpful to other keyboard owners. Kris Nicholson put together a tutorial series for his PSR-3000. Even if you don't have a 3000, you may learn some new tricks by watching this tutorial series. Finally, Yamaha has provided a number of short videos discussing some of the features and services available for Yamaha keyboard owners.
OK, pick a keyboard, and then sit back and watch the performances. Be warned, of course, that videos can be large files and if you have a slow connection, like a dial-up modem, the video may be interrupted frequently to download more of the presentation. You can, of course, opt to download the whole video to your computer, which will also take a very long time, but, once downloaded, will play smoothly on your PC or Mac.
