Do you want more than just the built-in songs and piano radio service? Your Disklavier has unique capabilities to add your favorite jazz songs, pop songs, or classical solos.

Get new songs and albums from top artists on your Yamaha Disklavier through the "Music Shop" online store on the Enspire Controller App.

Instead of using mobile devices to download more of the instrument’s exclusive content, you may consider downloading the music from a desktop computer.

In some cases, this may be a better alternative to using the Enspire controller app and downloading through wireless network connectivity.

The following 10 steps will help you download songs from Yamaha's Music Shop to your Disklavier.
