Since 1981, the Dutch pianist PETER BAARTMANS has been traveling the world as a presenter for Yamaha digital pianos & keyboards. His great experience, unique style of presentation, the mixture of classical, jazz and pop, and the superb sound quality of Yamaha’s latest digital instruments results in a unique and exceptional performance.

Susan Albers
Susan Albers is a pianist/vocalist from Germany and performs concerts all over the world and touches the hearts with her warm and emotional voice, and her own piano-arrangements of world famous songs, including her own compositions. Encompassing a variety of styles from tender balladry to stylish uptown R&B, her vocal dexterity ensures that Susan can cover a wide range of musical bases. This versatility allows comparison with such artists as Celine Dion and Alicia Keys.

In 1997 he began working as a demonstrator for Yamaha and now tours Europe as a Yamaha artist and is also involved in new product development. As well as being a virtuoso performer and thoroughly entertaining musician, Michel has also spent time in Japan developing ‘one-touch’ settings for Yamaha keyboards.

Ian House

Ian still enjoys his main passion which is performing to the public and sharing his skills and knowledge with keyboard players and music enthusiasts alike.
