Get Merry with Tyros3 Premium Packs and Voices

While it's easy for us to sit back here in our New York office and tell you about all the ways you could be creating wonderful Christmas music with your Yamaha keyboard, it's much more fulfilling, and much more fun, to do it ourselves. Today we present some of the fruits of our labors, with some Tyros3 holiday performances from our own analyst/resident composer and pianist, Aki.

If you're looking to get into the holiday spirit with some festive music, or seeking inspiration to go out and create some of your own, these videos are a great place to start. Of course, they also show off how well the sounds from the new Tyros3 Premium Voices and Packs enliven the music of the holidays.

Take a listen to how beautiful the new SA2 Pan Flutes - the Latin Pan Flute, to be specific - sound, playing perhaps the most famous song ever about a tree, "O Christmas Tree".

Or take a listen to the HuhStrong Choir voice from the Choir and Vocals pack on "Auld Lang Syne". We felt that the Celtic Xmas style was especially well suited to this Scottish song, which has become a New Year's theme around the world.

Keep reading for videos featuring an organ rendition of "Joy to the World" and a performance of "The First Noel" highlighting the SA2 Trombone voice.
