But how can you tell if the portable keyboard you're looking to purchase is stereo or not? w/Yamaha, the answer is simple.
All Yamaha Portable Keyboards are true stereo.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Enhances sound quality w/sophisticated digital effects like Harmony, Reverb & Chorus.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Yamaha Advanced Wave Memory technology delivers amazingly realistic sound.
Full Keyboard Mode
The YPG-235 delivers on its piano theme w/a special mode of fingering called Full Keyboard Mode.
This allows the player to play the keyboard like a piano, for example a chord w/the right hand & bass notes w/the left.
When using the accompaniment feature, the virtual band will follow these chords.
Traditional portable keyboards normally require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass section, which is foreign to most piano players.
The YPG-235 is also capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.
Yamaha Education Suite: Helps you learn to play
The YPG-235 has 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on included CD-ROM for you to learn to play using the Yamaha Education Suite.
The songs are separated into left & right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons plus a convenient chord dictionary.
Three keyboard lessons for each hand
Waiting Mode - stops the playback of a song until you find the correct note & then continues
Your Tempo Mode - Learn to play the correct notes w/the correct timing.

Minus One Mode - Here's where you can perfect your technique.

Play along while listening to the song.
Lesson Grading - monitors your progress as you practice each lesson & gives you a grade.
Repeat & Learn - the song location will move back four measures from the point at which you pressed the button, & playback will begin after a one-measure count-in.
This section will repeat allowing you to practice until perfect!

6-track sequencer: record your own music
