Yamaha Launches Innovative P-S500 Digital Piano for Beginners

“Learning the piano is such a rewarding process that we wanted more people to be able to experience it,” says Dane Madsen, senior manager of marketing, electronic keyboards group at Yamaha Corporation of America.

Yamaha, the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instruments, today announced the P-S500, a digital piano that changes the way music lovers learn, play and enjoy the piano. Smart, connected, and personalized, the P-S500’s innovative technology and design bring learning the piano into the modern age and helps aspiring pianists achieve their musical goals.

Crafted to fulfill a music lover’s dream of playing along with their favorite songs, the new P-S500 is equipped with Stream Lights technology that uses red and blue lights above each key to show the pianist which notes to play and when to play them. This feature helps users learn how to play and practice without ever having known how to read music - making learning more fun and straightforward.

The P-S500 pairs with the Smart Pianist app offering users a hassle-free connection to a smart device and gives full access to instrument controls and configuration tools. For a more personalized experience, users can enjoy powerful features such as app-generated piano scores of their favorite songs that help them learn and play along. To do this, the Smart Pianist app analyzes the audio of songs in a music library and produces a chord chart or piano score, which then works together with Stream Lights to show which keys to play and when. Users can also choose music from a built-in pop library or download best-selling titles from Yamaha MusicSoft (YMS).

“Learning the piano is such a rewarding process that we wanted more people to be able to experience it,” says Dane Madsen, senior manager of marketing, electronic keyboards group at Yamaha Corporation of America. “The P-S500 opens the door for a new generation of players with untapped musical abilities to begin their musical voyage. We are excited to offer this enhanced and modernized digital piano to aspiring pianists and also those looking to pick up the piano again.”

Pricing and Availability
The P-S500 is available at retailers across North America starting in January 2023 for a suggested retail price of $2,499.00 USD MSRP.
