Yes, there is a function in all Yamaha keyboards in this product line where you can transpose the keyboard by any interval you need. Consult your owners manual or write or call Yamaha's technical support staff.

comment what muscles are involved in singing, and does toning them improve singing?
I'm afraid I can't get too precise or scientific about it. But I've found that when I'm in good health cardio-vascular-wise, with regular moderate aerobic exercise, that I do sing better. And I am a classically-trained singer although I am not a working professional singer these days. However, I know of no medical or scientific evidence for this. And nowhere in any of my classical training in singing was there any mention of cardiovascular exercise. Operatic singers have a reputation for being lax about physical health, and for tolerating obesity. I have no idea where this got started!
