A combination of time-tested craftsmanship, unrivaled expressive capabilities and unmistakable tone make the concert grand piano one of the most revered musical instruments in history.

Point.1Providing a piano-like playing feel via the RGE Sound Engine.
The CLP Series was created expressly to achieve a playing sensation you would get when playing a grand piano. Its RGE Sound Engine recorded all tones from one carefully selected piano and refines them with careful attention to playing response and expressive capability. Additionally, keyboard touch is precisely calibrated and pedals are linked directly to changes of pressure and resonance. Integrating all these elements that make up a piano result in a superb playing experience.
Royal Academy of Music
Expressive capability is recognized by famed music schools worldwide.
The Royal Academy of Music and more than 700 other music institutions use Clavinova. The reasons why they choose Clavinova are, above all, the tone and touch. Clavinova models are excellent for students aiming to become top pianists, who must be able to practice without losing the sensation of a grand piano. Their natural resonances, performance feel and expressive capability are recognized by professionals around the world.
Some of the institutions that use Clavinova
UK : Royal Academy of Music / The Guildhall School of Music and Drama / The Royal Northern College of Music / Birmingham Conservatoire / Chethams School of Music / Manchester / USA : Oberlin Conservatory / Eastman School of Music / University of Southern California / University of Arizona / Boston University / University of Alaska / Georgia State University / Canada : Royal Conservatory of Music / Schulich School of Music of McGill University / Montreal Faculty of Music / University of Toronto School of Creative and Performing Arts / Humber College / Toronto Department of Music / Grant McEwan College / Edmonton Department of Music / University of Calgary
Point.2A performance piano developed with the player in mind.
The goal is a tone that is pleasant to play.
Yamaha does everything possible to create the optimum tone at the playing position. This requires precise attention to detail, extending from the selection of the piano to be sampled to the tuning of the recorded tone and the position of the speakers.
Playing loudly is not always preferred.
For those times when family members are studying, sleeping and so on, the Clavinova not only offers headphone jacks, but also an Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) function that lets you play with proper tone balance at low volumes.
Point.3Various features help you improve your playing.
Master popular songs with lesson features.
Stored inside your Clavinova are 50 well-known pieces of standard piano repertoire, including some often performed at recitals. You can listen to them as background music or take advantage of this collection of piano music to practice using lesson features.
1. Practice each hand independently
You can practice each hand separately while the Clavinova accompanies you to build proficiency.
2. Play at a reduced tempo
You can easily vary the tempo while maintaining the same pitch. Practicing difficult passages at a reduced tempo is a great way to build confidence.
3. Play a phrase repeatedly
You can play a difficult phrase over and over with the assistance of the built-in recordings. This is a great help in mastering the entire piece.
Practice using the recording function.
There are two recording methods: Recording to Internal Flash Memory records directly to the Clavinova and USB Audio Recording records to a USB memory device where the file can be transferred to a PC, then used in various ways.
When you want to play back the recording immediately: Recording to Internal Flash Memory
- Check your entire performance or skip to difficult phrases.
- Record one hand at a time, then play them back together.
When you want to save a performance: USB Audio Recording Memory
- Store your own performances on a PC.
- Email it to a friend.
- Listen to it on a portable media player.
