I would not consider myself musically gifted, I have never been able to learn music with ease, I can't read music very well and I'm not the best singer. I do however try my best, I play guitar at a reasonable level, I sometimes play and sing in front of people and I also have a small dabble on the piano. My piano skill are very basic, they came from simply playing on my sisters keyboard back in the day. Recently though my sister was selling off some of her worldly goods in an effort to raise funds for a move to Kenya. One of the things she was parting with was this Yamaha keyboard. This is quite an old model and there are certainly better ones on the ... Read the complete review

We've had a Yamaha PSR270 keyboard in our house for several years now. There are constantly new versions coming out from Yamaha but at the time of purchase, we (collectively as a family) felt this was our most suitable option. These days it's something you can pick up second hand for just a few quid so it's definitely one to bare in mind for new players who may or may not stick at it. In our family, most of us can play a bit. I'm more a guitar man myself but I can play the keyboard and piano to a fair standard. I know enough to tell you that there is a big difference between the two instruments for a start. If you're a piano player, you'll be use to ... Read the complete review

---Introduction + basics---- As we all know (or most of us know) Yamaha are a great make for musical instruments and the PSR-270 isnt an exeption. The keyboard has a very modern look with a great 4x10 cm screen on it, the range of instruments, the range of styles, the range of built in songs the buttons that help you navagate your way round the keyboard and the numeric keypad next to the screen. The keyboard has 36 white keys and 25 black keys. ( I dont know whether this is good because I dont play but it is great for me.) ----What it looks like---- As you cant see properly on the picture I have attempted to draw a little of what I like to ...

Depite being fairly old, I have only just recently taken up keyboard lessons. Believe it or not, I borrowed this of my (13) year old brother who is an expert at playing the keyboard /piano. I'd just like to inform you that i'm writing an opinion on the PSR-170 Yamaha Keyboard, not the 270 as written. So, remember- this is from a novices' point of view now (I'm sorry if I use the wrong names for different things). When you first switch the keyboard on, it automatically goes into "piano" mode. This is a synthesized version of the real thing, with some extra little features aswell (there are programmed intro's ... Read the complete review

I swapped my Yamaha DJX recently for a PSR 270, for the simple rhythm accompaniments which are missing from the Dance Mixer, like Waltz and March etc. The PSR 270 is not wonderful - it doesn't have any of the fancy bits and pieces which make you want to play around for hours. There's no pitch bender, or any of the groove or synth effects that come with the DJX. However, for under £200, you get all the things you need for basic playing or accompanying. I used this keyboard to write music for a production based on themes from a number of musical "eras" - the 20s, 40s, 60s and 70s. I made full use of the in built musical ... Read the complete review
