Meet the Beatles All Over Again - By Playing Them on Your Keyboard

This is a big week for Beatles fans. Tomorrow marks the Beatles' grand entrance into the 21st century with the release of both the long anticipated newly remastered Beatles catalog on CD and the Beatles: Rock Band game.

Between the new CDs and the new game, I'm sure there will be no shortage of music fans picking up a plastic guitar or a pair of headphones in order to lose themselves in the Beatles' music over the next few days.

Once you're done with that, though, why not load up some Beatles tunes on your keyboard and learn to play them yourself? We've got a wide selection of MIDI songs that will help you do just that.

If what you need is Beatles sheet music, we have over 100 songs to choose from in both piano and guitar arrangements. And with Digital Music Notebook sheet music, you can also transfer a MIDI version of each song to your keyboard and play along.

Or, if sitting back to hear piano arrangements of the Beatles' songs is more up your alley, there are eighteen different PianoSoft albums of beautiful music available from Yamaha MusicSoft or Internet Direct Connection for your listening pleasure.

No matter how you plan on enjoying the music of the Beatles with your Yamaha instrument, we've got something for you. Keep reading for a full list of our Beatles songs, sheet music and PianoSoft. Read more >>

I'm sure many people understand what you're talking about when you sayh MIDI, but I;'m one of the ones that need an explanation when you talk about MIDI. I have a gand piano that plays CD's and floppy discs, and also the piano has speakers for orchestras, but what is available is not worth the price charged for the piano in the first place. I'm not interested in playing what the Beatles have to offer, I want to turn my piano ON and listen to a conceto by Mozart or Beethoven. As we speak, there's one concerto available by Mozart and one other by another composer. This, after spending 20+ grand for a piano geared to play such music. HELP! Stanley Bates

Stanley,

Thanks for your comments. It sounds like what you're looking for is classical PianoSoft. PianoSoft is software containing professional piano performances, and we have a variety of classical music available. You can find Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and more here:

Classical PianoSoft

As for MIDI, yes, it can mean a lot of things. In this case, we're mainly talking about MIDI song files, which are versions of songs you can play back on your instrument. These files aren't real "performances", though, so your piano won't respond to them as well as it will to PianoSoft. Let me know if there's anything else I can clear up for you.
