For all intents and purposes, doesn't the description seem to infer that? That with the Y.E.S.5 teaching system and all those built in songs you'd have a well thought out lesson plan built in. That was my misunderstanding:::
What it actually is is a nice keyboard that you can learn on, but it won't teach you- the emphasis is on getting out what you put in- you have to really stumble your way thru learning the built in songs that the keyboard lights up the correct keys you're supposed to strike- there is not a good fluid way to learn a little piece at a time (It does have an A-B feature but it's not so much a loop as it is a measure to measure cycle with a 2-4 bar intro, each time!) So its not like you can just sit there and play it over and over and over again until you and your fingers get it, its: play the 2 or so bars you select (A-B) and then at the end, it goes thru at least a 2 bar beat count and then resumes the 2 bars of the song you're trying to learn.... does that make sense?
There are not lesson plans. In the book it says to "Listen to and Learn" the song. My memory isn't that fantastic that I can learn the songs by listening to them and then just learning, I think it would be a vast improvement to have a real loop feature that you could use to select a portion, loop it ad infinitum until you learn it and them move on. Also, I was really thinking that with the latest Learning System (Y.E.S.5) that there would be beginner lessons on reading the sheet music, finger drills, scales, etc...Read more ›
I had a couple years of basic piano lessons and wanting a keyboard for myself to learn some songs for self-entertaining purpose, using synthesia program. The features that I was looking for:
-Minimal 61 keys/regular size keys for basic beginners
-lighted keys for guided practice
-LCD for guided fingering
-realistic piano sounds
-piano like touch (Touch sensitive keys)
-ability to download MIDI from the computer
After playing with YAMAHA EZ-200 for a week, it delivers what I am looking for:
-content in the box include: EZ-200 keyboard, a product manual, a song book and a demo DVD of YAMAHA products.
-the keyboard was well made (made in China), elegant look; does not have that cheap plastic feeling
-YAMAHA education suite allows you to set a section between A point and B point, which let you practice that segment repeatedly
-the keyboard does simulate a stand-up piano quality
-"Waiting" function allows lighted key to pause and wait for you to catch up the music
-Allows practice separate right hand and left hand practice
-Allows to slow down the tempo the the song (included) that helps practice
A few things I'd like to address, not related to how EZ-200 was made, but probably would have affect my purchasing decision if I had known it ahead of time:
-AC adapter NOT included with YAMAHA EZ-200.
I was shocked when I realize the AC adapter is not included, especially when the product manual stresses the importance of using an AC adapter for environmental friendly reason.Read more ›
The only down side I see is that I do not like most of the songs built-in except for a couple so I would have like it more if there was the possibility of adding more songs and deleting some built-in.
