Light Piano Music For Quieter Occasions - The Mellow Moods Channel for Piano Radio

You spoke and we listened. After numerous requests from Piano Radio listeners for a "soft music" station, we've created the Mellow Moods channel.

If you're one of the many Piano Radio subscribers who love to use radio to set the mood for a romantic dinner or create a relaxing atmosphere, but until now, haven't been able to find the perfect channel to use for this purpose, Mellow Moods is the channel for you. Playing songs that stick to the softer side of pop, jazz, standards and soundtracks, the Mellow Moods channel will always give you gentle melodic music ideal for these quieter occasions.

Mellow Moods features everything from modern day ballads from Celine Dion to soft standards from Gershwin and Sinatra, giving listeners a diverse range of musical styles while keeping the atmosphere light. Below are a couple examples of songs you can expect to hear on Mellow Moods:

Bryan Adams - (Everything I Do) I Do It For You [From "Save the Best for Last - And More Great Ballads of the 90's"


Moon River - Henry Mancini [From "Beyond the Sea"]


The Mellow Moods channel is just the latest addition to our channel lineup, which includes 15 other stations available around the clock and throughout the year. For anyone listening to radio on a CLP Clavinova or MODUS digital piano, the Mellow Moods channel is your new channel 16.

To try out the Mellow Moods channel now, first log in to Internet Direct Connection on your instrument and choose "Listen to Radio", or from a Disklavier Mark IV choose "Internet" from the main menu on your controller, then "Disklavier Radio". 

On a Disklavier E3, you can listen to radio by pressing the "Internet" button on your remote, then choose "D-Radio". However, if you haven't created an account for Internet Direct Connection, you'll need to do that before subscribing to Piano Radio for your E3 - you can create your account here.

If you've never tried Piano Radio before, now's the perfect time. If you're not ready to subscribe and check out the Mellow Moods channel, that's fine.  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. 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.
