Tyros2 / 9000Pro

Brian Haylett

(May, 2003) I live in Norfolk, on the east coast of England.

Musical Background. (4/24/06) My early musical life was notable for its negative side: my junior-school singing teacher insisted that I move my mouth but not utter a sound in class choirs. My senior-school teacher was renowned for banging a key on the head of anyone who did not "sing up," but he put the key away when he came to me. So I was strictly a listener (to the "wireless" - no record players then) and a watcher of countless cinema musicals.

Having turned down the chance to learn the piano, I turned to literature; and it was not until years after I left university with hood and mortar board (in truth, I never had the second at all) that I bought a cheap acoustic guitar. I never learned to tune this, and certainly never played a song on it. But it led eventually to my getting an organ, then another organ, and so on through countless trade-ins over 30 years or so. I am entirely self-taught, as people have been known to mutter.

While I played organ, I was told how superior the piano player was. As soon as I switched to keyboard, I was told that playing the organ was so very skillful. I reasoned that, by these arguments, a symphony orchestra would be led by a one-man-band performer, and players of flute and oboe would be in the gutter. In fact, the 9000Pro proved an excellent breakthrough (combined with retirement from teaching), and not only a good cure for left-leg pain.

Now I have Tyros2 and can hardly stop playing - always at home; I am no public performer. The problem with T2 playing is that the SA voices do not play back in other models, so I have used MidiPlayer to produce 2k duplicates of my T2 midis.

midiBrian has 80 midi files created on the Yamaha 9000Pro and the Tyros2. The table below shows all the songs, their tempo, time signature, whether they include lyrics and chords, where available, the style used, and the keyboard.
