Polyphony
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. This keyboard has 12-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or auto-
accompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones offer only 6-note
polyphony.
• When rhythm or auto accompaniment is playing, the
number of sounds simultaneously played is reduced.
• Though you can sound up to 12 notes at one time, only the
last four keyboard keys pressed light up.

3-Step Lesson System
Using 3-Step Lesson System
Even individuals who cannot play the keyboard at all can
follow along with the 100 built-in Song Bank tunes with the
ONE KEY PLAY buttons. You can also use the 3-Step Lesson
System to learn at your own pace. Play slowly at first until
you are able to play along at normal speed.
Of the 100 built-in tunes, numbers 00 through 83 feature auto-
accompaniment (auto-accompaniment tunes), while 84
through 99 are played using both hands (two-hand tunes).
The 3-Step Lesson System can be used with the following 3-
step lesson plan to master keyboard play.
Step 1: Master the timing
Pressing the ONE KEY PLAY buttons plays the
melody for an auto-accompaniment tune or the right
hand part for two-hand tunes. In both cases, the auto-
accompaniment (the left hand part in the case of two-
hand tunes) is played automatically by the keyboard.
In place of the ONE KEY PLAY buttons, you can also
press any key of the keyboard to play the melody or
right hand part. The purpose of this step is to
familiarize yourself with the timing required to play
melody notes.
Step 2: Master the melody
In this step, you use the display to learn which fingers
you should use to play, and the key light system to
learn which keyboard keys to press. You can play at
the pace you want, because the auto-accompaniment
or left hand part waits until you press the correct key.
Step 3: Play at normal speed
At this level, the keyboard’s keys still light to indicate
which notes to play, but they no longer wait for you
to press the correct key. The auto-accompaniment or
left hand part is played at normal speed.
❚ NOTE
• You may not be able to see the keyboard keys light under direct
sunlight or in other brightly lit areas.
3-Step Lesson System Tempo Setting
You can use the procedure in step 6 of the procedure on page
E-18 to set the tempo of the left-hand part for Song Bank and
3-Step Lesson System play (Step 1 through 3).
This means you can use a slower tempo at the beginning,
and then increase it as you learn. Press both of the TEMPO/
VALUE buttons ( and ) at the same time to return the
tempo to its initial preset setting.
To play a built-in Song Bank tune
1. Look up the number of the tune you want to play
in the Song Bank list.
• Not all of the available songs are shown on the song
bank list printed on the keyboard console. For a
complete list, see the “Song List” on page A-5.
2. Press the SONG BANK button until the SONG
BANK indicator appears.
• This causes the number and name of the currently
selected Song Bank tune to appear on the display.
3. Input the two digit number for the tune you want
to play.
Example: To select “13 TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE
STAR”, input 1 and then 3.
4. Press the START/STOP button to start play of the
selected tune.
• The tune you select plays repeatedly, with the
keyboard keys lighting to indicate the melody notes.

notes you play on the keyboard. Timing is easier to see when
you use a slow tempo during lesson play.
Using the Timing Indicator
The timing indicator shows the timing of notes contained in
the currently selected part (R or L). Notes are indicated as
two-segment blocks that scroll from the top of the display,
down to the bottom. A note is played when its block reaches
the bottom of the display.
• Each two-segment block can indicate one or more notes,
depending on the tune you are playing.
❚ NOTE
• The Timing Indicator shows note timing whenever you play back
a Song Bank tune and during a 3-Step Lesson.
• Note that the Timing Indicator shows approximate timing only.
