Enjoy the Sounds of the Season On Your Yamaha Instrument With the Holiday Favorites Channel For Piano Radio


Though the weather outside may not be frightful quite yet, the holiday season is definitely upon us, which means it's time once again for the Holiday Favorites channel on Yamaha's Piano Radio. As of today, and throughout the holidays, Piano Radio subscribers can enjoy around the clock access to holiday piano music on their instrument.

The holiday season is a special time which calls for special music and there is nothing like the sound of a piano playing "Silent Night" or "The Christmas Song" to capture the warm, nostalgic mood of the holidays.  With Piano Radio, getting into the holiday spirit with piano music is as easy as turning on the Holiday Favorites channel.

Of course, the idea of "holiday music" covers a lot of ground between "The Dreidl Song" and "Jingle Bell Rock" and Holiday Favorites recognizes this diversity, drawing on the extensive catalog of holiday PianoSoft music to provide a wide selection of songs.  For example, with Holiday Favorites you can expect to hear traditional hymns like "Adeste Fidelis", modern Christmas classics like "Blue Christmas", seasonal songs like "Winter Wonderland" and everything in between.

The Holiday Favorites channel is now online and accessible to all Internet Direct Connection compatible keyboards and pianos. CLP and MODUS users will find it under channel 15.

If you've never tried Piano Radio before, now's the perfect time. Two free channels are available right now - all you need to do is get your keyboard online and you can be enjoying streaming music within seconds. Subscribers get access to the new Live Piano Concerts channel, seasonal and holiday channels throughout the year, and over a dozen other channels of piano music.

Follow this guide for help with connecting to the internet, or head here if you're ready to subscribe. For more information on Yamaha's Piano Radio, visit our Online Services site.

Update (1-19-10): The name our live piano performance channel has been changed to "Live Piano Concerts". The channel will continue to deliver the same great music as always.
