Following on from the very successful Xperts On Tour programme earlier in the year, Yamaha are now embarking on stage two of the tour, introducing new topics, hints and tips to Yamaha keyboard players and enthusiasts.
On the 14th July, the first Xperts On Tour Stage 2 event took place at the Wroxton House Hotel in Banbury.
Forty keen players were informed and entertained by Yamaha Brand Ambassadors Ian House and Jackie Marsden on a variety of topics covering Yamaha Tyros and S Series keyboards. The topics are designed to help you get the most from your keyboard and to demonstrate how simple and yet versatile these instruments are. The day finished with a useful Q&A session to answer any questions or topics which weren’t covered in the training followed by an impromptu performance by Ian and Jackie.
The reception from attendees has been incredibly positive with one guest even stating that they had learnt more in one day than they had in 20 years of owning Yamaha keyboards.
The most commonly asked question at the end of the day was, “when is the next event?”.

Stage 1 and stage 2 will cover completely different topics so if you attended the previous tour in February/March which was completely Stage 1, then you will be able to attend a Stage 2 event to learn completely new skills. You can also attend a stage 2 event without having been to stage 1 as there is very little crossover in the topics covered.
Lunch will be provided on the day and you will receive a very useful information pack covering all the details of the topics covered to take away with you.
Spaces are limited so be sure to contact your nearest venue to guarantee a place.
