The sturdy contemporary design features back posts for added strength, while the specially designed soundboard and high-grade hammers endow the b1 with an unrivalled richness and sound depth for a 43" piano. Yamaha's patented Extruded Aluminum Alloy Action Rail eliminates the common fluctuations in wood and metal encased rails, that affect touch, allowing for a more stable, long-lasting action regulation. NASHVILLE — Yamaha today introduced its new DGX-650, a Portable Grand digital piano that is ideal for piano students and hobbyists of all ages. The DGX-650 has category-leading touch and tone with PureCF sampling, which integrates the authentic sounds from the critically acclaimed nine-foot Yamaha CFIIIS Grand Piano into this powerful portable keyboard. The DGX-650 has many key features that intuitively assist beginners and novices in expressing themselves musically. A stereo 3.5mm AUX line input enables external audio devices to take advantage of the DGX-650 speaker system and offers another way aspiring artists can play along with their favorite songs stored on iPods, CD players or computers.
The DGX-650 delivers full 128-note polyphony, twice as much as the previous DGX-640 model, as well as more Voices (543) and Styles (195). The new Style Recommender feature makes it easy to find a style of music based on playing keystrokes in any given rhythm.

Since the transducers themselves do not press against or exert any weight on the soundboard, there is no adverse effect on piano tone. The Acoustic Experience – Appealing to the musical purist, this mode allows the user to enjoy natural acoustic piano play from a fully-strung, wonderfully resonant Yamaha acoustic upright piano. The TransAcoustic Experience – The user can envelop themselves in the sound and physical presence of the world-renowned Yamaha CFX concert grand piano, as well as a variety of other sounds, with headphone-free, volume-controllable digital piano play, enhanced by natural acoustic resonance. The Layered Experience – The user can find inspiration by combining the real acoustic piano sound with one of the many internal digital voices, virtual instruments stored on a computer or sounds triggered from an external tone module.
The Intimate Experience – Become immersed in the music by engaging Silent Mode for totally muted digital piano play, performed with headphones, to avoid disturbing others or being disturbed. Additional features of the U1TA include: Scale and fine tuning of the digital voices, metronome functions, MIDI and audio recording capabilities, external device connectivity via MIDI, USB and AUX input terminal, and the ability to connect to a hi-fi, studio or live sound reinforcement system via the built-in AUX output terminal. Frequently, parents choose an upright piano for a first piano; they range in height from 36 to 51 inches. Buying from a piano store—or even just looking at pianos there—is worthwhile because you can try out many kinds of pianos at once to see what appeals to you. By the way, no piano should ever be placed on an outside wall of the house because dampness is lethal to a piano. Some of the best brands of pianos are Steinway or Steinway & Sons (the “Cadillac” of pianos), Baldwin, Wurlitzer, Chickering, Yamaha, Kawai, Samick, Bechstein, Ibich, Pleyel, Gaveau, Kemble, Chappel, Petrof, and Scholze. Digital pianos with weighted keys give a similar feel to playing an acoustic piano and are a much better choice than those that are not weighted. Buying a piano is an important decision because a good piano should last you many years and can provide unlimited pleasure.
Author of Tennessee Literary Luminaries: From Cormac McCarthy to Robert Penn Warren (The History Press, 2013) Sue Freeman Culverhouse has been a freelance writer for the past 36 years.


She moved to Springfield, Tennessee in 2003 with her sculptor husband, Bill a retired attorney. Sue teaches music and writing at Watauga Elementary School in Ridgetop, Tennessee to approximately 500 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Yamaha's renowned, pure, clear tone and easy to play, responsive keyboard touch make this upright ideal for beginning piano students.
Each key of a Yamaha piano is individually weighted, allowing all keys to play uniformly, ensuring a lifetime of superior touch and control across the entire keyboard.
Featuring Yamaha's highly acclaimed Graded Hammer Effect keyboard as well as realistic piano and instrumental voices, the P-140 offers both the authentic feel of an acoustic piano and the advanced features of today's digitals. This entertaining alternative to an acoustic upright piano offers several features that make learning and playing piano more fun than ever, including upgraded piano sound and CD-quality audio recording and playback, as well as the ability to play chords with a single keystroke and interactive software that helps players quickly learn songs of their favorite artists from many genres.
Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard action provides the natural touch response of a full-size grand piano -- the lower keys are heavier and the higher keys become gradually lighter through the different registers. With this special collection of piano songbooks and play-along recordings, piano music can be experienced in several ways.
CD-quality audio recordings of performances can be loaded onto computer and emailed to a friend, posted as a video on YouTube or simply transferred to an iPod.
Smart Chord mode enables major and minor chords to be played with just one key and is suitable for a variety of genres. For example, if a PA is connected to the headphone jack, the player can choose to leave the built-in speakers powered for use as a local audio monitor. Unlike fixed-point, directional speakers found on a conventional digital piano, these transducers cause the soundboard to vibrate in much the same way a speaker cone would. While the acoustic upright piano has remained virtually unchanged since the 19th century, Yamaha is working to address changing lifestyle needs, introducing important new features such as volume control and unique sound layering, while maintaining the integrity of an authentic touch. The piano itself highlights the legacy of the immensely popular U1 acoustic upright piano, which has maintained its reputation for being a durable, reliable and professional upright for half a century.
A piano can last as long as 40 years and can be as expensive a purchase as an automobile if you buy top quality. Many parents realize the importance of early training if a child is to become an accomplished musician. It is critical if you are going to choose this method to take someone who is knowledgeable about pianos with you. The tone of a piano—even that of instruments of the same brand and style—is very individual. Ivory keys can be cleaned by using a damp cloth (not dripping because you don’t want any water to go between the keys) and solid white toothpaste (on the white keys only). A digital piano usually comes with the sounds of many other instruments programmed into its database. Digital pianos can also come in a grand piano case and they are from several hundred to thousands of dollars. Beginning in 1976, she published magazines articles in Americana, Historic Preservation, American Horticulturist, Flower and Garden, The Albemarle Magazine, and many others.


Sue has one daughter,  Susan Leigh Miller who teaches poetry and creative writing at Rutgers University. She also publishes a literary magazine each year; all work in the magazine is written and illustrated by the students. A favorite in Japanese and European households for years, the Continental style b1 is designed for maximum performance, incorporating exceptional craftsmanship, space-conscious design and high-quality sound at a wallet-friendly price.
Yamaha reinforces the crown of its soundboard to ensure that the tone quality will remain consistent for years.
Like all Yamaha pianos, the b1 offers Uniform Key Travel to ensure that regardless of size, type or model, Yamaha keyboards will always feel the same.
It includes a stand and a sustain footswitch, and is available in two attractive finishes: black with rosewood side panels or spotlight white. The piano part of a song can be played on the DGX-650's keyboard while XG song files play all of the backing band parts.
For example, when playing a jazz song, players can automatically create complex 7th and 9th chords. On the other hand, most parents, unless they are pianists themselves, rarely understand the complexity of buying a piano.
Very few children start out practicing at home on a grand piano unless there is already one in the family. If you buy a traditional acoustic piano, you need to commit to having the piano tuned without fail at least every six months. Try out many pianos until you are satisfied that you are making the choice that is right for you.
Songs can be slowed down to allow players to practice at a comfortable tempo before speeding up when they're ready. Plastic keys can be cleaned with a mild solution of vinegar and water, making sure no water goes between the keys. With Smart Chord, these instant four and five-note harmonies are now possible with a single finger. Older pianos ranging from 36 to 37 inches high, called spinets, are no longer built because of their inferior sound quality; it is still possible to buy one of these (used, of course) pianos, however, for a beginner. If these pins are allowed to remain in an “out of tune” position for years, they most likely will not hold tuning well even after they are tuned repeatedly. If you know someone who tunes pianos, you should take this person along when you are looking at used pianos—even if you have to pay the person (and that’s only fair!) for his experience. The small sum you pay the “expert” may save you hundreds of dollars and prevent your buying a faulty instrument.
