OVERVIEW

An instructor's key to teaching the art of ear training, harmony training, and ensemble timing to a student group.

The Yamaha HD-200 is a comprehensive teaching tool that brings harmony training, rhythm training, and sense of timing together in one convenient electronic keyboard. It enables music educators to clearly demonstrate pure temperaments and for students to learn how to tune individual notes within chords, so that entire chords may be tuned. The Yamaha HD-200 Harmony Director keyboard helps musicians understand how each part fits into the complete harmony of the ensemble. The level of understanding gained by using the instructional keyboard programs will take your ensemble's musicianship to the next level.

A Japanese secret:
Have you ever heard a Japanese high school band or chorus? Ever wonder how they get such great blend and intonation? Almost all Japanese school bands use this special training tool that, until now, has only been available in Japan. The Yamaha Harmony Director keyboard allows you to teach through examples rather than words alone, the kind of harmonic understanding that normally takes many years of experience to develop.

Easy operation:
Part of the Yamaha HD-200 Harmony Director keyboard's power is its ease-of-use and friendly interface. With two LCD screens and intuitive one-touch operations, the HD-200 Yamaha keyboard empowers educators in teaching intonation and ensemble timing to high levels quicker than conventional means.

Comments about Yamaha HD-200 Harmony Director - Instructional Keyboard:

This tool has won me over... my HS band now plays with better intonation than at any time in my 31 year teaching career. We even got great judge's comments on "wonderful intonation" at marching contests in cold weather. In short, the HD has become a very effective tool for helping my band listen for "perfect" intonation. It may be the best way to teach listening/intonation to school bands if the Japanese bands are any indicator. I would pay 3X the price for this system. Buy it!
