        Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano:

        Ideal for the beginning or novice players, but can keep up with the professional as well. If you're looking for a keyboard to learn , practice, or perfect your piano playing the YPG-535 is the perfect choice! Full 88 keys,stand and a load of sounds and functions make this a keyboard you can grow into.

        One thing I love is Yamaha's lyric,notation and chord display. Any music that you play, whether it's one of the built-in songs, or one you saved from the interenet, will automatically scroll on the large display screen! You want to record your own music? No problem! The keyboard will also play your notes on the screen after you save them and play them back. What an awesome way to learn, write and play music. Singers can also take advantage of the displayed lyrics as well.

        Another feature I love is the "one touch" settings. This setting does all the work for you, removing the boring process of going through the entire sound bank just to find the right one for the song you want to play. How cool is that?!

                Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano:

                This is a great keyboard that resembles an upright piano. It comes with detachable legs when you want to travel, or provides the look of a more permanent fixture with the legs. The full 88 keys provides the entire range desired of a keyboard instrument. This keyboard is full of features including tons of different tones, built in recording for songwriting, and metronome. With all these features, this instrument is great for the beginner or intermediate player. The only downside to this keyboard is the lack of weighted keys. Other than that, there is nothing negative I can say about this instrument. I highly recommend it to everyone.

                  Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano:

                  A a piano teacher, I'm often asked what parents should get for a beginning piano player. This piano is a great choice. It feels enough like a real piano, sounds great, and has enough fun bells and whistles to keep a beginner interested, and let's face it, that's the biggenst challenge to playing before you've gotten good enough to really enjoy it.
