New DVD's and Computer Software Online

We've just added a selection of close to 100 new products to Yamahamusicsoft.com, including DVDs, recording and composing software and more. (You can see the newest products on YMS by clicking here.)

Some of the highlights of the new recording software include Cubase Essential 4, an affordable version of the popular Cubase recording and editing program. We are also carrying a new student version of Sibelius, reasonably priced for music students and weekend warriors who still need a powerful music notation software.

I'm also personally excited about the "Jazz Master Class at NYU" series of instructional DVDs. Some of the world's greatest jazz musicians perform their favorite songs for Manhattan audiences and then explain the development of their styles and techniques in an accessible manner, intended for the general musician. Each DVD is just $19.95 and contains over 5 hours of footage!

The series includes some of my favorite jazz musicians, like Cecil Taylor, Hank Jones, and the unsung master Barry Harris.
