Yamaha Club Magazine: August / September 2020

Hi everyone. The August/September edition of our magazine is now out and yet again we’ve had to add extra pages to get everything in. The bad news is that our annual Yamaha Club Weekend has had to be cancelled for this year but the good news is that it has been rescheduled for 2021 – by which time we can hope things will have settled down somewhat. Meanwhile there’s been lots going on online to keep us entertained as organ/keyboard players do their best to make our kind of music alive and available to fans of the hobby. Top marks to all concerned.

Free registrations for members The registration downloads for Genos and Tyros5 are proving as popular as ever and several of the workshop articles now come with this complementary software offer. In place of the Mp3 audio files there is now a link with each registration set to a demonstration of the software on You Tube. You’ll find offerings featuring Genos and Tyros5 by clicking the links.

Overseas subscribers Although the Yamaha Club is based in the UK keyboard enthusiasts from all over the world subscribe to our magazine. If you live in the UK (or overseas) you’ll find details of how to subscribe here: https://www.yamaha-club.net/subscribe/
