The Spiritual & Worship Channel - New For Yamaha Piano Radio

Today we're very pleased to launch a new station for Yamaha Piano Radio. The station is devoted to spiritual and worship music, which means everyone who's been waiting for a Christian music station for their instrument has finally gotten their wish.

With the new Spiritual and Worship channel, you'll get around the clock access to stirring renditions of your favorite hymns, anthems and spirituals right on your instrument. And, as Holy Week and Easter approach, there's no better time to have beautiful sacred music at hand.

Here's an example of what you can expect to hear on the Spiritual and Worship channel (click the links for audio samples):

Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)
The Old Rugged Cross
All Creatures of Our God and King
Just a Closer Walk With Thee
I Love to Tell the Story

New Yamaha Piano Radio Channel for St. Patrick's Day

Earlier this week we released a new channel for Yamaha Piano Radio that will run through the month of March, playing Irish music to get everyone in a festive mood for St. Patrick's Day.

The channel is called "St. Patrick's Celebration" and features tons of Irish music to fuel a rollicking St. Pat's party or provide background music for early spring.

Click here for information about Yamaha Piano Radio.

Of course, we also hope that this time of year will inspire you to make some music of your own. Hopefully this video of everyone's favorite Yamaha keys expert, Peter Baartmans, playing an original Irish song on the Tyros 3 will inspire you to get working on your own Irish tunes.
