Yamaha Portable Grand Series
The Yamaha Portable Grands have an easy-to-use panel, a wealth of piano-centric features including piano-style keys, Graded Soft Touch (GST) action with different levels of resistance and a high resolution stereo piano sample. It is the music student or professional musicians' answer to “I need more keys!” and many music teachers encourage new students to get a keyboard that will grow with their needs.
Industry's Best Piano Sounds
You're never more than a button push away from the most realistic piano sound in portable keyboards today. One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano — perfect for when it's time to practice. Yamaha is known around the world for the high quality acoustic pianos and this attention to detail is evident as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of the Portable Grand pianos.
Yamaha Portable Grand comes with 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on an included CD-ROM and an interactive lesson system, divided into left and right hand parts, for learning them. In addition, you have the ability to connect to a computer via USB, download more songs from the Internet into the internal Flash ROM (PC only), and use all of the Yamaha Education Suite features to help you learn to play them.

Imagine being able to give a concert to your friends or relatives the very first day that you bring this remarkable keyboard home. Well, with the YPG-235 and performance assistant technology, you can! Performance assistant technology is a feature from Yamaha that guarantees that you can't play a wrong melody note or chord. Here's how it works. Select a song, press the Performance Assistant button Chord Mode and play the keyboard – any notes you like. Every note you play will fit the music!
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.)
Helps You Learn to Play!
Yamaha Education Suite teaches you to play by breaking down songs into individual components, like pitch and rhythm, and reconstructing them once mastered. You can practice one hand of a song alone while the instrument plays along with the other. WAITING mode pauses the accompaniment until you play the notes indicated on the display. Your TEMPO mode monitors playing and adjusts the tempo according to your accuracy. Minus One mode lets you play the piano part start-to-finish, and gives you a grade at the end.
- Three keyboard lessons for each hand
- Lesson Grading – monitors your progress as you practice each lesson and gives you a grade.
- Chord Dictionary – shows you how to play chords and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and chord names on the LCD screen

I'm someone that is just starting to learn how to play piano and looking down the road of future piano expenses, thought it would be smart to have a one time purchase of something quality, something comfortable. Looking at the many reviews given and seeing this piano as likely the best choice in 88 keyboards, I bought it, and at first was happy with the sound and all the little buttons and sounds it can make. But as I continued playing it, I realized some little things that will simply irritate me for the rest of my experience with this keyboard.
1.It's incredibly heavy at a little over 30 pounds (although most 88s are) It's portable, but you'll certainly have a time trying to get it anywhere.
2. I doubt you'll be taking it's stand anywhere. The bundle wooden stand it comes with requires two men to assemble using screws fastening the keyboard to wooden stands that are then screwed to a wooden board. (Very stable, on the other hand.)
3. Don't plan on adding your own musics to this piano through computer. I was under the belief that I could download songs via computer unto my YPG-535 and have the said teaching programs the piano offers to help me learn it.I went through the process of installing the drivers. But the disc program I installed into the computer failed to even read the piano when connected using a USB-to-HOST Cable. I checked to see if it failed to read the drivers, but even other Piano-Computer programs that help you record to computer accepted the piano, it's just the Yamaha Musicsoft Downloader Program didn't. Even in the instance "Musicsoft" works, most, if not all songs are trademarked, pay to play licenses, (likely) very unattractive to someone that spent this small-fortune on this Piano. On page 111, the manual states, "Important. Only Musicsoft Downloader can be used to transfer files between this instrument and a computer. No other file transfer application can be used." So if Musicsoft Downloader works somehow for you, then perhaps. Good luck.
4.Upon arrival, you'll see that the Digital MusicNotebook service is no longer available. I'm not sure if it's shown in this products description, but I thought it was important to note.
5.USB-to-DEVICE terminal may refuse flash drive. This is particularly confusing as it is a USB 1.1 that looks just like the correct port for my flash drive, yet won't accept it to the point I fear i'll damage the port terminal. Investigating further I find in pg 93 of the manual that, "This instrument does not necessarily support all commercially available USB devices. Yamaha cannot guarantee operation of USB devices that you purchase. Before purchasing a USB device for use with this instrument, please visit the following web page: /insert link to Yamaha Download site/". Check it's site first to see if your drive can be accepted by the YPG-535. It was not listed that not all USB types are accepted, a nuisance to me greatly, and likely to you.
6. Keys are now irritating. The actual sounds of the speakers are fine, but the feel of the keys simply aggravates me. Plastic and light, this is perhaps what made me the most angry with this keyboard. Reading Graded-Soft-Touch in the description made me think that this keyboard had SOME, (albeit not much) resistance when it is played. I am quite sure that this keyboard is hit just like any other plastic keyboard, ZERO resistance from low to high range. It's all the same. Instead, the feature refers to velocity the note was struck with, affecting the dynamics of that note. A hard strike, a loud sound, a soft touch, a soft sound. It does this certainly well, but it IS NOT weighted in any way shape or matter, a factor quite important for anyone aspiring to play the authentic acoustic piano.
You can really feel how plastic it is when lifting from a played note. Turning the volume off and just releasing the note, I hear a sound more audible than a small rubber ball bouncing of the wall. It sound similar to it too. Kinda like a pinball flipper EVERY TIME you lift. Playing at 50% volume, and it's still loud enough (or at least noticeable) to be heard. Irritating simply put.
7. Seems likes I bought a lesser for more. Post-Purchase comparison to the P-45 with less features at less price, but of course, GHT (Graded HAMMER Touch), and more minimalist look, I can't help but regret opening my packaging to the point of no return and being stuck with some thing good but something flashy, heavy, and temporary as this when something just (or even better quality) as good as this is sold FOR LESS. I felt like crying at seeing my torn YPG box. Needless to say that anyone can benefit from a.) knowing what they want when they shop. and b). keeping your boxes until you're happy with your product, whatever it is, maybe not even throw it out.
If you're looking for a piano to give you that fun factor, this is certainly it. But really, any piano with oodles of likely useless features will supply that. And like anything bought for toyish thrills, you'll last a week and regret spending this much on what you'll certainly (hopefully) outgrow just to struggle with weighted keys. This, in sum, is an expensive, feature flooded keyboard that's more for fun than actual progress. I can't recommend this to anyone.
If you're looking for a piano likely to truly help you grow up to play an acoustic, like I was, you'll likely want the P45 also made by Yamaha. If I had seen the p45 first and not this over-praised mediocre keyboard, I would probably be a bit happier now.
Learn from a shopper's capricious mistake of this piano and get something you won't hate the moment you touch.
Probably the P45. ASIN:B00UJ9LNDK Yamaha P45B Digital Piano]]
EDIT: Even further research shows a better piano for the same price.
The Competing Casio Priva is sold for the same price, and seems to have enjoyable key actions and piano sounds. Although it doesn't come with a stand for the same price as the YPG-535, it seems like a much more professional piano you'll likely enjoy playing.

At first I thought all the 2 star reviews were just elitist snobbish haters. "There are always haters, this keyboard will be fine! It's probably half-weighted, just not EXACTLY like a real piano, and really skilled snobby pianists hate on it" I told my sister. But let me tell you, I was WRONG. When you play the first notes of this keyboard, you'll realize even a 5-year-old pianist would complain about how cheap it feels. If you were planning to get this as a keyboard for practice purposes to keep your skills in shape, forget it.
Moreover: At $500 it is SEVERELY overpriced -- for $500 one can find many ACTUAL realistically weighted keyboards on amazon. Just ask yourself what exactly are you paying for when spending $500 on this? The 700 extremely cheesy and dated sounds of fake trumpet, violin, "sawtooth" (which sounds NOTHING like the simple plain sawtooth wave used in popular electro music), sound effects, and honkytonk, which were cheesy even when they came out in the 90's? The "demo songs" so you can press play and say "look my keyboard can do this"? The extremely unintuitive way to record multi-track songs? Let me give you two terms to google: DAW, and Sample Library.
If you need a realistic keyboard, look elsewhere and spend $500 on an actual weighted keyboard. If you have no requirements for it to be piano-realistic, look elsewhere and spend 1/3 of the price on a keyboard which will suit your needs equally well.
Redeeming qualities: speakers are rather good, piano sampled instrument sound is decent
