Yamaha Club Magazine: August/September 2021


The August/September edition is now on its way to subscribers and it includes a couple of bumper size workshops for Yamaha Genos and Tyros keyboards. As always there are also features for the PSR-SX700/900 and CVP Clavinova. The ‘Registration Builder’ and ‘Music Chef’ articles come with free software for Genos and Tyros5 as does the keyboard music arrangement by the very talented Penny Weedon. Meanwhile, things are moving into place for the forthcoming Yamaha Club Weekend event and we’re all very much looking forward to being able to share ‘live’ music together again. We’ll be back again in October with another issue but, until then, I hope you’ll find plenty in these pages to inspire and interest you. Kind regards – Glyn
