New Premium Styles: 90's Kitsch Pop & US Disco 2011!

Two new Yamaha Premium Styles hit the catalog today, aiming to please fans of dance music and easy listening respectively. With US Disco 2011, you've got a killer dance groove clearly inspired by Maroon 5's hit song "Moves Like Jagger", and enough versatility to tear up the dance charts of the last few decades. On the other hand, 90's Kitsch Pop lends itself to typical TV theme songs, or classic Bossa Nova tunes from the 60's and beyond.

Check out the demo videos below:

4 New Jazz Collection Packs at Yamaha MusicSoft!


When we released the Jazz Collection packs back in August, the response was overwhelmingly positive! That's why we've worked with our content production team to offer 4 new packs atYamaha MusicSoft this week!

Each song works with the score and tempo features of Yamaha instruments. Accurate scores for the left and right hand piano parts, and the ability to slow down the song while practicing make it easier than ever to learn to play Jazz! You can even practice each hand separately to help you learn the chord fingerings at your own pace.

Our latest Intermediate and Advanced Jazz Collection Packs feature Jazz Standards including Moonlight Serenade, Nica's Dream, Summertime, My Funny Valentine, and more!

Check out the demonstration videos below, or visit Yamaha MusicSoft to hear MP3 samples of each pack!
