Here is some fun, free music for you to download and play on your Clavinova.  You’ll want to download and print out the sheet music/pdf for “Practicing Late” and “Spider’s Revenge” and email Susan for the MIDI Song file to pop into your CVP to play along with.  “The Mad Mountain King” includes the sheet music/pdf and Set-Up instructions for you to play along with a Style, so no need for a MIDI Song file.  Either way, have fun on your incredible Clavinova!
