Hear The Band. Play The Notes. Be The Star.

Keyboard players- experience playing and singing your favorite songs with a real band. NoteStar is Yamaha's digital sheet music application for the iPad that features hands-free, smooth-flowing, easy-to-read digital sheet music accompanied by realistic audio backing tracks with vocals.

Now in NoteStar, owners of compatible Yamaha keyboards can also use pedals to turn pages and hear the piano reference track broadcasted wirelessly or via cable to their instrument.

Choose your NoteStar Experience!
NoteStar now offers 4 types of songs so you can choose the experience that's best for you. All NoteStar songs feature automatic, hands-free page turning in time with the music, so you can keep your hands on the keys where they belong.

1) Piano Solo
The songs in this series feature separate reference audio tracks for keyboard left and right hands. Each audio track can be independently muted for hands separate or hands together practice and performance.

2) Full Band
The songs in this series feature a realistic audio backing track and a separate keyboard reference audio track. Each audio track can be independently muted for practice or to provide a unique 'in the band' performance experience.

3) Full Band with Vocals
The songs in this series feature a professional audio backing track and separate keyboard reference and lead vocal audio tracks. Each of the aforementioned tracks can be independently muted for practice or to provide a unique in-the-band performance experience, with or without vocals.

4) Lesson Collections
This series combines classical songs and exercises from composers such as Czerny, Beyer and Hannon into a perfect lesson for the practicing pianist. Like Piano Solo songs, Lesson Collections feature reference audio tracks for keyboard left and right hands. Each audio track can be independently muted for hands separate or hands together performance.

Unable to download songs


In theory this app may be cool however I bought two songs and have been unable to download them. Fix your store please, until then you’re not a 5 stars app.

Can’t even buy songs

Brand new CSP170 and I can’t even buy a song. Big investment for me and I can’t even use the functionality. Not cool

If you only buy one app buy this one

This is a brilliant gem of an app since you can use it in so many different ways. Want to practice a song?
Listen to the whole band including vocalist playing and at the same time reading the lyrics and notes. The cursor shows you exactly where you are. Want to practice keyboards? Turn off keyboards in Notestar and you can then play keyboards with Notestar providing the backing including vocals. Want to practice vocals? Turn off vocals in Notestar and sing while your own band accompanies you.
This is not midi rubbish - this is top quality music. Music too fast - then slow the tempo to 3/4. It is really a superb app only danger is spending loads of money buying up different songs. Price is £2.49 for a full vocals song.
