Clavinova Certified Teacher Topics

Some of the features and functions you can expect to be covered while learning from a Clavinova Certified Teacher are as follows:

  • Selecting Voice
    • VOICE is the instrument sound e.g. Piano, Strings, Guitar, Trumpet etc.
  • Selecting Styles
    • ‘STYLES’ are auto-accompaniments e.g. Pop, Rock, Jazz, Latin etc.
  • Selecting Songs
    • ‘SONGS’ are songs created using ‘VOICES’ and ‘STYLES’.
  • Fingering Mode
    • Setting the Fingering Mode determines how the auto-accompaniment ‘STYLES’ will interpret the chord inversions you play on the keyboard e.g. Multi Finger or AI Fingered (Artificial Intelligence Fingered).
  • Registration
    • ‘REGISTRATIONS’ are your saved custom settings. You can save hundreds of ‘REGISTRATIONS’ in Banks of 8 internally and on USB. Create, save and load your custom settings and songs for instant recall.
  • Registration Sequence
    • How to create a ‘REGISTRATION SEQUENCE’, as well as assign and use the pedal to change the ‘REGISTRATION SEQUENCE’ and selection. ‘REGISTRATION SEQUENCE’ allows you to change your ‘REGISTRATIONS’ while freeing up your hands.
  • Playlists
    • How to create and manage multiple playlists for your performances. Select only the desired files from a large repertoire (Registration Memory Bank files) and create a new PLAYLIST for each performance.
  • Chord Looper
    • Allows you to record chord sequences and play back, freeing your left hand from playing chords. Record while playing or when ‘Style Playback’ is stopped using ‘Sync Start’. Assign to Registrations for instant recall.
  • Music Finder
    • A database of ‘REGISTRATION’ settings for many popular songs, which can be used to set up your instrument.
  • Song Recording and Editing
    • How to record and edit your performance.
  • USB Memory
    • How to use a USB memory stick for audio (.WAV & .MP3) recording, ‘SONG’ and ‘REGISTRATION’ storage and recall.
