Product Description

Portable Grand: One Press To an Amazing Stereo Grand Piano Voice You're never more than a button push away from the most realistic piano sound in portable keyboards today. One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano – perfect for when it's time to practice. Yamaha is known around the world for the quality of our acoustic pianos and this attention to detail is evident as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of the YPT-210 Portable Grand piano. And of course, the keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack on the back for practicing and playing piano pieces. Yamaha Education Suite™ (Y.E.S.): Learn How To Play Now! The YPT-210 has 102 built-in songs for you to learn to play, using the Yamaha Education Suite. The songs are separated into left and right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons plus a convenient chord dictionary. Three keyboard lessons for each hand: Lesson One – LISTEN & LEARN the melody or rhythm of a selected song Lesson Two – TIMING mode allows you to play the melody or chord by pressing any key using the correct timing Lesson Three: WAITING mode stops the playback of a song until you find the correct note and then continues Lesson Grading – monitors your progress as you practice each lessons two and three and gives you a grade. Chord Dictionary – shows you how to play chords and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and chord name on the LCD screen. Sound Effect Kit: Have Some Fun! If your kid doesn't think playing keyboard is cool, wait 'til he hears this keyboard! Get the world of Hip Hop and all the hottest sound effects in your Yamaha keyboard. Push the Sound Effect button, hold down a key with your right hand, and you're groovin'! Computer Connectivity: General MIDI (GM) Compatible The music pathway to your computer and the Internet is MIDI. It's the way that keyboards communicate with computers. And because the YPT-210 is both General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatible, you have access to thousands of MIDI song files on the Internet. Sound Quality: Real Stereo (Not Just 2 Speakers) Some keyboards have two speakers but aren't stereo. Don't be fooled. Just because a keyboard has two speakers doesn't mean that it's truly stereo with two separate amplifiers. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards feature stereo-sampling technology. 32 Note Polyphony and 16 Part Multi Timbrel In electronic keyboards, the more sounds made at the same time – polyphony – the more memory is needed. Obviously, more is always better, because too little polyphony can cause dropouts in dense passages of music. Some keyboards at this price point have only 12-note polyphony. The YPT-210 has 32 notes of polyphony and will play back 16 different parts or sounds at once (16-part multi timbrel); enough for the most demanding needs. Auto Accompaniment Styles In addition to the 102 songs mentioned above, the YPT-210 also has auto accompaniment styles that "follow" your playing. Simply select a style of music from the 100 built-in Styles (example Rock), play a single note or chord on the left side of the keyboard and play your melody on the right side. The YPT-210 will create a backup band (bass, drums, strings, guitar etc.) and "follow" you through the song. You can play your songs and try different genres of music. It's both fun and entertaining. Voices The YPT-210 has a large selection of professional sounding Voices called XGlite. The result is amazing sound quality and 375 Voices for you to choose from, offering compatibility with both 3rd party and Yamaha XG software. Just some of the great sounds you'll find in this keyboard are trumpets, violins, electric pianos, harpsichord, organ, guitars and bass guitar. Connectivity The YPT-210 features MIDI In/Out, Sustain Pedal jack and a Headphone jack for private practice.

Customer Reviews

Great way to start learning...5 Untill few weeks back I was an absolute 'monkey with a piano', I decided to take some lessons and my teacher recommended me a Yamaha with a metronome. I grabbed this one from a local Circuit City and I've been quite pleased with it since then. Pros: - Nicely priced - Keys feel good when pressed (doesn't feel like cheap plastic) - Built in metronome (you need it if you are new to piano/keyboard) - Decent display that can display the musical notations as you play along - Great learning features with lots of inbuilt songs (keys are displayed on the screen as you play along - works at your speed and can be split into either right or left hand or both - nice way to learn) - Around 370 built in voices - 61 keys (enough to start practicing with) - DVD included which tells about basics of this piano (features of this piano NOT how to play) - Light weight if you want to carry it around - Input for sustain pedal (need to buy it separately) --Overall nicely designed with other features) Cons: - Doesn't sound like piano but then I'm just learning - You cannot control loudness/softness, I mean in a piano if you strike a key softly the sound produced will be different from when you strike the same key hard (loud), in this Yamaha there is no such distinction, sound produced is always the same irrespective of the way key is pressed (this should not matter much to a beginners) - Power adapter not included, you need to buy it separately - Notes(music) for inbuilt songs are not included, it would have been very nice if you can have them - makes practicing easier. Overall, this is a nice keyboard for beginners but as you practice along and you are serious about learning you will outlive its usability and may need to upgrade to higher model or a piano :-) .... but if are a beginner like me look no further. Also, if you are serious about learning piano try this book: 'Alfred Basic Adult Piano Course Level 1" with CD.....great book for beginners.. good luck Good for Beginners4 This keyboard would be wonderful for learners like the other reviewers have stated. Being someone who took countless years of lessons and is used to a real piano, this does not compare. I borrowed another yamaha keyboard before getting this one and i noticed a lot of differences. Pros- The fun sounds are great, it has a lot of songs and special voices, but the only one i really will ever use is grand piano. I found the ability to change the metronome's time signature difficult to figure out without the manual, but was very glad that i could do it. i really love that feature to help keep me on the perfect beat system every time. Cons- i hate that all the defaults reset every time you turn the power off. i cannot STAND that the volume always defaults to loud. I wish it had a turn-knob to set the volume reasonably and ready for use when you turn it on. Also, the reverb is automatically on. At first use, i thought the keyboard had a crappy tinny sound that echoed, but it was the fault of the reverb being on... which is a default. It also does not come with an ac adapter. Who wants to buy 6 batteries at a time for this monster? Another con starts with the fact that this keyboard has 102 songs in it. The problem is... the list is on page 20 of the manual. I wish they would have included a card with them listed on it or printed them right on the keyboard like on past models. If i am looking for a song i'm not going to pull out the manual nor flip through 102 intros to find it. This is the same for reverb types and voices which are listed on various pages of the manual. Fantastic Value5 I just started piano lessons and picked this keyboard up on sale. My teacher recommended the Yamaha over Casio for better sound and reliability, so I took her advice and picked this up as an entry-level practice keyboard. The sound is excellent (to my untrained ears at least), there are lots of useful features, and you really can't beat the price. Its built-in teaching aids have been VERY useful to me as I learn, especially the display that shows the note you're playing along with the key you're pressing. I recommend this keyboard to any beginner without hesitation.
