Yamaha keyboard 353

Yamaha keyboard 353I love it couldn't be happier I'm a beginner so it worked out great it has a lot of features that really hit you
Music background: Beginner

A Great Way To Learn Piano

I bought the PSR-E353 so I could learn to play piano. The Yamaha Education Suite (YES) was a big selling point, as was the touch responsive keyboard. I am a professional musician and a self learner with experience on many instruments, but not piano. I wanted to learn proper piano technique, not just keyboard hacking, and the YES system does that! After I downloaded the learning manual and get into the YES system I found that it did indeed teach me proper technique. The system shows you which fingers to use and when, which is very important in preventing the development of bad habits. The YES system has 10 pieces you learn, each in two forms, easy and advanced. Stick with the system and you will learn how to play piano! One thing: the pieces are not numbered in the order of difficulty! I started out on one of the most difficult pieces without knowing it. Some of the easiest pieces are at the END of the learning sequence.
