This PSR Tutorial Songs 2017-2016 Collection includes 1,020 songs (MP3 format) -- 91 hours of listening pleasure. 58 performers contributed to this song collection and 18 Yamaha keyboards are represented. All of these songs appeared on the PSR Tutorial web site in 2017 or 2016, but many are or will be archived and available only in this song collection.
These songs can be played in your computer (Windows or Mac) as well as on many mobile devices (such as iPads and iPods). They also can be played on recent Yamaha arranger keyboards (Genos, Tyros5, Tyros4, PSR-SX900, PSR-S975, PSR-S970, PSR-S950, PSR-S910).
All songs have been normalized to a common volume level. This means that you do not have to continually adjust your speakers for songs that are too loud or too soft.
All MP3 filenames reflect the name of the song itself. Appended to each song name are one or more codes indicating information about the performance.
- "_c" indicates that this is an original song by the performer.
- "_v" indicates the song includes a vocal.
- "-PPKK" provides a 2 (or 3) letter abbreviation for the performer and a 2-letter abbreviation for the keyboard.
For example, a file labeled "Call Me_v-LTT5.mp3" is the song "Call Me" with a vocal by Larry Tyler (LT) playing on his Tyros5 (T5). See tables below for performer and keyboard abbreviations.)
Since these are MP3 files, they also can contain song information. For all songs, the "Contributing Artist" field holds the name of the performer. For regular songs, the "Album" field contains the name of the keyboard used. For Christmas songs, the "Genre" field shows the name of the keyboard.
Christmas Songs - 193 songs are drawn from the PSR Tutorial Christmas Jukeboxes in 2017 and 2016. These songs are in the "_Christmas" folder. 20 PSR Tutorial Forum members and 20 PSR Performers contributed to these holiday song collections. The Christmas songs take up 755 MB or storage and provide almost 10 hours of holiday music from around the world.
Other Songs - The remaining 827 songs are listed alphabetically in a series of alphabetical folders (A-C, D-H, I-L, M-Q, R-S, and T-Z). While a computer folder can easily handle a thousand plus files, your Yamaha keyboard folders are more restricted. That is why, for convenience, these songs were organized into subfolders.
The contents of the collection are detailed in several pdf files as well as a Microsoft Excel file found in the "_Docs" folder.
"Songs, by Title”
Available as a PDF file and a Microsoft Excel file, this report lists all the songs alphabetically along with the performing artist, the keyboard used and the length (minutes) of the song. Note that the “Songs, by Title” pdf file is 28 pages when printed out.
A separate “xmas Songs by Title” pdf file lists only the 193 Christmas songs.
“Songs, by Performer”
This pdf file lists song information alphabetically by performer. The "PSR Performers" have their own PSR Performer page in the Performers section of the PSR Tutorial web site. You can find additional MP3 and/or midi songs on their Performer page as well as a short musical biography and a picture of the Performer. Performers not currently listed in the current Performer's section, are found in the Archived Performers section.

“Songs by Keyboard”
This pdf file lists song information alphabetically by Keyboard. 15 Yamaha arranger keyboards are included as well as the CVP-301 and the Korg PA4X. The number of songs by keyboard, as well as the 2-character keyboard abbreviation, are shown in the table below.
41% of these songs were recorded on the top-level Genos or Tyros models. 56% of the songs were recorded on midrange PSR models.
The chart below shows the number of songs by keyboard with the keyboards listed from the newest arranger keyboards back to earlier models.
The table below shows the release dates of Yamaha arranger keyboards from 2009 through 2019. Since these are songs submitted in 2017 and 2016, there are no PSR-SX900 or PSR-S975 models represented. But the vast majority of songs (95%) were recorded on the previous 6 models.
Using This Collection
Most PCs provide software to play MP3s. Double-clicking on any song is likely to launch that software and play the song. However, your PC may also include a music database program, such as iTunes, and all of the MP3s can be loaded into your music database program. Each song includes song data indicating the performer and the keyboard used.
