The Yamaha PSR-E353 has easy-to-use onboard lesson functions for beginners and a touch-responsive keyboard that will satisfy experienced musicians.

A comprehensive library of 573 high quality voices
The PSR-E353 comes with a diverse array of 573 different voices including pianos, strings, guitars and synths. The grand piano voices utilise stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of performing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound. In addition to a library of 573 instrument voices and 158 backing styles from around the world, you can also connect an audio player to jam along with your favorite songs.

Touch-sensitive keyboard for piano-like control of of volume and dynamics
Play the keys firmly to increase the volume of the sound or softly to decrease it; the PSR-E353 will faithfully reflect every nuance of your playing.

Nine-step lesson function (Yamaha Education Suite) helps beginners learn to play
The lesson function offers a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right hand, and three for both hands, helping new players to practise the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to develop your skills and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to suit the person playing, pausing the backing track until the correct note is played.

Connect your music player, reduce the lead volume with Melody Suppressor and jam along with the music
Connect an audio player to the PSR-E353 to enjoy your music through the instrument speakers and to play along. The "Melody Suppressor" function lowers the volume of the melody, allowing you to play the lead line of your favourite tracks. *The volume of the melody line may not lower for some songs.

Connect to your iPad/iPhone and expand your keyboard with software and apps
By connecting your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch to the instrument with an optional cable, it's easy to make practicing and performing music an even more enjoyable experience. There are several exciting Yamaha applications available for download from the App Store including: *My Music Recorder -- An application for recording video and audio of music performances on your iPhone/iPod touch. Audio and video data recorded can be e-mailed or uploaded to YouTube. *Sound Controller -- Use the wheel or XY controller of this application to control effects such as pitch bending and reverb from your iPhone/iPod touch.
