Musical Background

(March, 2004) Franco has lived in a little house near Cosenza, exactly in Castrolibero. Now he lives in Cosenza. He’s has two daughters from his first marriage. Franco is 59 years old.

Musical Background: I liked classical music since when I was young, I studied classical guitar for two years and after that I studied piano for two years also. When I was 25, I discovered my passion for Yamaha electronic instruments, Electone organs and various keyboards, which are the best in my opinion. I played music for entertainment in private parties and in some hotels until the age of 32. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, I stopped playing for a number of years. Then, at the age of 43, I restarted playing for my own enjoyment (actually I own a Yamaha PSR-6700, a very old keyboard, and a Yamaha PSR-2000, bought 2 years ago). Simultaneously, I discovered my passion for PCs. I programmed using DOS Borland Dbase IV and then I learned the HTML language.

I like melodic musics from the 40s and 50s, and motion picture soundtracks. I hope you will enjoy the music I sent in as my first volume. I’m sorry only because Yamaha’s sounds don’t work properly if played on a PC. With software, Van Basco’s Karaoke Player (, this problem is partially resolved (thanks Joe).

Thanks to Joe Waters for the opportunity he gives to all of us. - Franco

Note: Franco moved up to the Tyros2, then the PSR-S750, and now is playing a Tyros5.
