Yamaha Backstage: A new online feature for Yamaha Club

Watch an introduction to ‘Yamaha Backstage’ on YouTube

For a long time, our friends at Yamaha UK have wanted to take you, our Yamaha enthusiasts and friends, behind the scenes. To take you Backstage and show you not only about the instruments, but also about the story behind them. To show you the why, the how, the who and the where. Yamaha Backstage will do this, and then take you a little further still. We plan the occasional breakout from Yamaha musical instruments altogether, to look at the wider world of all the things that Yamaha does, and the connection between them.

 

Find Glyn Madden on You Tube

For the past year or so I’ve been adding videos to YouTube to showcase some of the software I’ve produced for the ‘Registration Builder’ and ‘Music Chef’ workshops in the magazine. Hopefully this collection will continue to grow over the coming year. If you get time to visit my YouTube Channel please subscribe (free) and give the video a ‘like’ if you’ve enjoyed it. Thank you!

 

Find Penny Weedon on You Tube

In a recent magazine we mentioned Penny Weedon’s new venture with online ‘tutorials’ about music – based on the countless workshops she’s presented around the country during her career. You’ll find her ‘Music For Good’ on YouTube by clicking the link.
