Hello. What you are looking for is the transpose function. Here are the steps provided by Yamaha.

1. Press the [FUNCTION] button.

2. Press the category [ ^ ] button (located near the [DATA]dial) several times until 'Transpose' appears on the display.

3. Turn the [DATA] dial to the desired transposition.

I hope that answers your question. Have a nice day.
