Sing This Season!

Did you know your keyboard has a built in karaoke machine? With a lyric-enabled instrument such as a Yamaha Clavinova CVP-series or DGX digital piano, Tyros, or PSR-S arranger workstation, you can enjoy singing along with your favorite songs. If you love singing then you’ll love Yamaha’s catalog of thousands of downloadable MIDI Song files that contain lyrics.  Read on for a quick how-to guide that will get you started. 

How to search for songs with lyrics on

All of our Yamaha Premium Songs offer lyrics for karaoke. To locate these titles, select MIDI Songs from the “Play” menu on, then open the filter labeled "Brand" on the left hand side of the page. Select  “Yamaha Premium Songs” to see songs with lyrics. 

How to turn on the lyrics function on your keyboard: 

Once downloaded into your instrument, you can press the lyric button on the panel to see the words to the song on your screen. 

Now you're ready to sing along while your instrument plays the MIDI Song! The pages of lyrics will turn in time with the music, just like a real karaoke machine. Happy singing!
