Yamaha dealers are hosting a very special event featuring international product specialist Bert Smorenburg and the new PSR-S950 workstation keyboard.

The PSR-S950 represents a major leap forward in digital keyboard technology and features. In addition to a vast library of authentic sampled instrument sounds and professionally arranged backing accompaniment programs, the instrument boasts powerful audio processing features and incredible live drum and percussion tracks which take the sound of the instrument to a whole new level of realism.

The PSR-S950 can be played like a traditional keyboard or used as a creative music workstation, be it in the studio, the classroom, on stage or at home.
