TAKING CARE OF YOUR DIGITAL PIANO
This digital piano will provide years of musical enjoyment if you follow the simple rules listed below.
Warning
When using electrical products, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
Power
• The instrument should be placed where it is easy to unplug the power plug.
• Unplug the power plug during lightning storms, cleaning or when not used for long periods of time.
• Turn the power switch off when the instrument is not in use.
• Turn the power switches of all related devices off prior to connection or disconnection of MIDI cables.
• Turn the power off if the main cable is damaged or the instrument is spattered with liquid.
• Do not switch the unit on and off in quick succession, this places an undue load on the electronic
components.
• Avoid plugging the AC power cord into the same AC outlet as appliances with high power consumption,
such as electric heaters or refrigerators.
Service and Modification
This product should be serviced by qualified Service Technician when:
• The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged,
• Liquid has been spilled into the unit or it has been exposed to rain,
• The instrument does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance.
• The instrument has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
• Do not attempt to open the piano or make any change in the circuits or parts of the unit.
Handling and Transport
• Never apply excessive force to the controls, connectors or other parts of the instrument.
• Always unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly, not by pulling on the cable.
• Disconnect all cables before moving the instrument.
• Physical shocks caused by dropping, bumping, or placing heavy objects on the instrument can result in
scratches and/or more serious damage.
• Carefully check the amplifier volume control before starting to play. Excessive volume can cause
permanent hearing loss.
Cleaning
• For Veneer Style Wood finish, a standard polish similar to “Pledge” is acceptable or use a dry “anti-static” cloth.
• To maintain the luster of the keys and buttons, wipe with a clean, slightly damp cloth, and then polish with
a soft dry cloth.
6
Location
• Do not expose the instrument to the following conditions to avoid deformation, discoloration, or more
serious damage:
-direct sunlight (near a window)
-high temperatures (near a heat source, outside, or near a window)
-rain or excessive humidity
-excessive dust
-strong vibration
• Leave enough space around the piano for it to be properly ventilated.
• This instrument contains digital circuitry and may cause interference if placed too close to radio or
television receivers. If interference occurs, move the instrument further away from the affected equipment.
• Avoid placing vinyl objects on top of the instrument as vinyl can stick to and discolor the surface.
• Do not expose the piano to dripping or splashing. Objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should not be
placed on the instrument.

of orchestrated accompaniment chords using a
minimum number of fingers (one, two, or three
fingers at the most). In this mode, playing keys in the
accompaniment section of the keyboard can generate:
Major Chord – Press any key in the autoaccompaniment section of the keyboard. The key you
press determines the root note of the major chord.
Minor Chord – Press the root key and any black key
to its left simultaneously.

Seventh Chord – Press the root key and any white key
to its left simultaneously.
Minor-Seventh Chord – Press the root key and any
pair of black and white keys to its left simultaneously.

The fingered mode is ideal if you already know how
to play chords on the keyboard. It allows you to
play the chords in the auto-accompaniment section
of the keyboard to produce the selected autoaccompaniment pattern. The Fingering Guide table at
the back of this manual lists all of the 31 recognizable
chords of this mode.
Note: If a chord played cannot be recognized, the
previous chord will keep playing.
Piano Mode
When the Piano Chord Fingering mode is engaged,
you may enter chords anywhere on the keyboard.
You are not limited to the auto-accompaniment
section. In this mode, there is no keyboard split point
function for chord recognition.

VARIATION button. If one of the chord fingering
modes is engaged while the ACCOMP indicator lights
up, the additional parts of the auto acompaniment
will start as soon as a chord is recognized, according
to the selected chord fingering mode.
Note: Styles marked with a "*" in front of their names
have no drum part. Even if you press the START/STOP
button, they do not play any sound until a recognized
chord is pressed in the Auto Accompaniment zone of the
keyboard, depending on fingering mode selected.
Starting with An Introduction – All of the 100 styles
can be started with an introduction pattern. Pressing
the INTRO/ENDING button immediately starts the
Drum part of the introduction pattern, followed by
either the main or variation pattern (depending on the
status of the VARIATION button). If one of the chord
fingering modes is engaged, the additional parts of the
auto-accompaniment will start as soon as a chord is
recognized, according to the selected chord fingering
mode.
Synchronized Start – Synchronized Start mode
makes the auto accompaniment go to "standby." Press
the SYNC START button, the beat indicator dots
above the TEMPO buttons will blink at the current
tempo, indicating that the synchronized start mode
is ready. You may add an introduction by pressing
the INTRO/ENDING button after pressing the
SYNCH START button. The auto accompaniment
will start as soon as you play a recognized chord in
the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard.

With the Harmony feature engaged, a single note on
the right-hand section of the keyboard will sound
with additional auto harmony notes. The note played
in the right-hand section of the keyboard determines
the root key of the harmony. It is recommended that
only one note be played at a time. If more than one
note is played, only the highest note will add harmony.
Note: Auto Harmony is only available when the autoaccompaniment is playing.
The Auto-Harmony feature can be turned On/Off in
the Setup menu. The default status is Off. There are
four harmony types that can be selected: duet, close
harmony, open harmony, and octave. The harmony
type selection is assigned in the Setup menu. Please
see the Setup section for more information.
Adjusting the Tempo
The four-dot indicator above the TEMPO buttons
indicates the tempo and the beat for accompaniment
playing. Each style has its own preset tempo. The
tempo can be adjusted before or during rhythm style
play by pressing the TEMPO buttons. The current
tempo will be shown on the display.
Use the -/NO or +/YES button to change the tempo

DEMO
The Serenade features a two track recorder that
allows you to record what you play on the keyboard
and then play it back. Two tracks mean that you
can “overdub” one part on top of another, using a
different voice if you like. The recorder feature is
a useful addition to any keyboard study program
since it lets you hear exactly how you sound from
the listener’s perspective. It can also be just plain
fun. This recorded information is nonvolatile and
therefore will not be lost when the power is turned
off. Both tracks can playback separately or together
as a complete song. The record function records all
settings exactly as you selected and performed them.
Playing Demo Songs
Recording Prepare
The Serenade has 13 different demonstration songs
that showcase the voices that are available. The
display will show the song name and its number with
a “d” prefix. When playing all the songs, “ALL” will
appear on the display initially, and will change to
the demo song number and name as it plays. After
exiting the demonstration mode, the display will
revert to its initial data.
Prepare to record by setting the voice, style, tempo
and reverb level and other parameters as desired.

the tempo now, the new tempo will be applied for
both tracks. The time signature cannot be changed
after recording has begun.
Note: If you use the metronome when recording the
accompaniment track, the metronome will play in place

MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.
This is a world wide standard communication
interface that enables electronic musical instruments
and computers (of all brands) to communicate
with each other so that instructions and other
data can pass between them. This exchange of
information makes it possible to create a system of
MIDI instruments and devices that offer far greater
versatility and control than is available with isolated
instruments. Whether you interface with computers,
sequencers, expanders or other keyboards, your
musical horizons will be greatly enhanced.
MIDI Channels – The MIDI system in this unit
has 16 channels numbered from 1-16. Each of
the channels is responsible for a voice. When the
instrument receives MIDI data from an external
device, the active channel is determined by the
control message. The transmission channels on this
keyboard are fixed as follows:
Channel 1: Master voice
Channel 2: Layer voice
Channel 3: Split voice
Please see the MIDI Implementation Chart for more
detail.
Note: When a USB cable is connected from the Serenade
to a computer, all MIDI messages will receive/transmit
via USB.
MIDI Connection – The MIDI terminals are located
on the left side panel of the piano.
MIDI In – This terminal receives MIDI data from an
external MIDI device.
MIDI Out – This terminal transmits data from this
instrument to other MIDI devices. The transmitted
data includes note and touch velocity produced while
playing on the keyboard, as well as voice changes,
wheel operation, and recorded playback for the
melody tracks. Demo songs and auto accompaniment
are not transmitted.
USB – The USB connector allows you to connect the
piano directly to your computer. It can be connected
without driver installation under the Windows XP,
Windows Vista & MAC OSX environment. The piano
will be recognized as a USB Audio device to receive and
transmit the same MIDI messages described above.
For more information regarding transmitted MIDI
data please see the next page and or the MIDI
implementation chart.

General MIDI Playback Voices
In addition to the 32 Voices selectable from the
control panel, Serenade includes 128 General
MIDI voices that support the Rhythm and Auto
Accompaniment features. These additional sounds
can only be accessed via the MIDI IN jack, or USB
jack (as MIDI input data), corresponding to standard
Program Change numbers.

WARRANTY
1 Year Parts & Labor Warranty
Williams provides the following limited warranty, to the original
purchaser: this piano is warranted to be free from electronic
and/or structural defects in materials and workmanship for a
period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. If this
Williams piano is defective, at its option during the warranty
period, subject to the terms of this limited warranty and upon
proof of purchase, Williams will either repair or replace the listed
piano with a same or similar model of equal age or newer. Any
repairs or modifications must be completed by Williams and/or
an authorized agent of Williams. The warranty obligations as set
forth herein shall be performed free of charge with the exception
of all delivery and shipping expenses. This limited warranty will
not apply to this product in the case of misuse, abuse, neglect,
alterations, normal wear and tear or other circumstance not
directly attributed to electronic and/or structural defects in
materials or workmanship. Without limiting the foregoing, this
limited warranty will also be inapplicable to products that have
not been maintained or replaced in accordance with the

are found, contact your authorized Williams dealer with regard
to the alleged defect within ten (10) days of discovery of
the problem at info@williamspianos.com.
The foregoing repair or replacement obligation for
defective products shall be the sole and exclusive remedy
of this limited warranty. All warranties including, but not
limited to, the express warranty and the implied warranties of
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are limited
to the one (1) year warranty period. Some states do not allow
limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the
above limitation may not apply to you. There are no express
warranties beyond those stated here. In the event that applicable
law does not allow the limitation of the duration of the implied
warranties to the warranty period, then the duration of the
implied warranties shall be limited to as long as is provided by
applicable law. No warranties apply after that period.
Retailer and manufacturer shall not be liable for damages
based upon inconvenience, loss of use of product, loss of time,
