This is a curious feature of this particular Yamaha piano model. While the musical machine is essentially a digital apparatus, the yamaha p115 manual, as its name states, has a distinctly positive feature for the beginner piano player not always fully appreciated. While it is listed as a con elsewhere, learning how to play a digital piano manually stands the beginner in good stead for his or her future music career.
Here is an easier way to put this. Many of you may never have played a musical instrument before, but many of you do have a license to drive a car. If you can recall your first driving lesson, you were taught to pilot the vehicle in manual gear shift. That, however, would have been quite some years ago, but the expert analogy is that learning to do things manually with your own hands and mind places you in a better position to be fully appreciative and knowledgeable of your instrument.
Alternatively, if you were only operating on automatic, you would never learn how key notes and chords are composed creatively and theoretically. There are other firm features of the Yamaha P 115 well worth mentioning, and here they are. The piano comes fully equipped with four internal speakers. These speakers are accompanied by a sound boosting feature. This key feature provides clarity with notes, particularly with high range engagements.
The piano is fairly lightweight. This makes moving to a center or church convenient for you in the future. You can simply disengage your musical instrument and carry it over to your car, pack it in the trunk, and off you go to your first music engagement. The manual piano is aided by a digital piano controller. A curious thought, but less intimidating will be late night practice hours. At this stage, not many folks will appreciate your first notes.
That is putting it mildly, but never mind that. You can practice in privacy, fully focused and without any outside interference with an accompanying set of headphones. If this can be considered a con for now, then do note that you will have to provide your own adapter. Back to the positives. In keeping with learning how to play manually, this yamaha’s keys’ weight is pretty much in line with the acoustic or original version.
Now, if you are steadfast in creating as much variation as possible, then you will surely enjoy this next feature. A number of standard music sounds have been included. This makes it easy for you and your music partners to include singing to the music repertoire or concert you are endeavoring to create. Now, as far as negatives go, just note that there will be no LCD screen included. And ports and memory recording is rather limited. But these limitations should not trouble you at this stage, seeing as though you are going to be learning how to play the piano manually and properly.
