MY PIANO

Manufacturer's Description


My Piano is a unique and fun way for kids aged 5 and up to learn how to play piano or keyboard! An animated character named Pam the Piano guides kids through over 100 lessons by former Juilliard School of Music instructor Irma Irene Justicia, M.A.

My Piano covers the basics, such as proper hand position and rhythm, and moves on to reading music notation, playing songs and more. An animated keyboard shows kids where to put their fingers as the music plays, and the speed of the music can be adjusted with MIDI tracks so that each child can learn at his or her own pace. When used with a MIDI keyboard, kids get instant feedback on their playing, telling them which notes were played incorrectly and what should have been played instead. Separate audio tracks (left / right hand, full song / voice only) and colourful MIDI accompaniments provide exciting options to have fun with. My Piano is the complete program that will get your child playing piano!

Built-in accessories include: Digital Metronome: Kids can keep a steady beat with audio and/or visual feedback. Digital Recorder: Allows kids to record and play themselves back for friends and family to hear!

Research has proven that children who play an instrument do better in school, make friends more easily, are more creative, learn self-discipline, and gain self-confidence. Get your child started playing with the easy and fun way to learn - eMedia My Piano


The fun way to learn: Now it's easy for kids aged five and up to learn how to play piano! An animated character named Pam the Piano guides kids through over 100 lessons by former Juilliard School of Music instructor Irma Irene Justicia, M.A. Games make learning fun, and kids will learn songs that they can share with their friends!

Animated keyboard: The animated keyboard shows colour-coded fingerings as the music plays so kids can easily follow along. Double-clicking on any chord or note will also show them where to put their fingers.

Interactive feedback: When used with a MIDI keyboard, kids get instant feedback on notes and rhythms they played wrong and find out what they should have played instead. There's also an overall score to show them how well they did on the song.

Full-motion videos: the lessons are easy to follow with our large-format videos, featuring split-screens and close-ups that guide kids through songs and playing techniques.

Interactive games: Games help children learn chords and songs by reviewing what they learned in the lessons. By interacting with the playful characters and scenes, kids will have fun while learning music!

Audio and MIDI tracks: Audio playback for selected lessons include piano only, voice only, and full audio including both piano and voice. Play along with tracks that you can speed up or slow down including colourful MIDI accompaniments, metronome tick, left-hand part, right-hand part, or the two-handed performance.

Metronome: kids can set their own tempo and get audio and/or visual cues for staying on beat so they can play in time with the music.

Recorder: The digital recorder allows kids to play into the computer's built-in microphone (or an external one), record their performance, and save it to the computer. This handy tool lets them listen to what they played and share it with their family and friends.

I started teaching my 5 year old daughter piano using the Faber My First Piano Adventure books a few months ago, and I saw this and thought it would be a fun addition to our lessons. We just used it for the first time yesterday, but she REALLY likes it so far and could play "Mary Had a Little Lamb" just after using it this one day. We hooked it up to our new Casio Celviano digital piano and as she played, it would give her a score and tell her what she did wrong (played a note too late, played the wrong first note, etc.). At first this disappointed her because she wanted to score 100% but I encouraged her that that was the point of the score...so she will learn from her mistakes and get better scores as she practices more and makes progress. I also explained how great it is that this scores her on her rhythm so someday she could play with other instruments or accompany singers or choirs if she wants to because there are a lot of people who can play the right notes but if you can't play in the right timing, then you can't play with other people. My daughter liked the software, including the talking piano, the instructional videos, and listening to the audio samples. I also like that you can print the screen so I could print "Mary Had a Little Lamb" so she can practice even when I'm not right there with the computer. My daughter is in kindergarten and is learning to read pretty well, but even if she was older I wouldn't turn any kid loose with learning to play piano. They could learn too many bad habits with their posture, hand positions, fingering, etc. (things the software can't score) if there's not an adult sitting with them to correct them, and those habits would be hard to break in the future and could prevent them from really excelling at piano in years to come. So, I did sit with my daughter during it, but I was planning to do that since I'm her teacher and it was our lesson yesterday. I would recommend this software as it brought a new level of fun to learning.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Far better suited to those with electronic keyboards rather than acoustic pianos, this oddly-named product is American and therefore refers to note values in terms of 'whole notes, quarter notes etc' rather than the crotchets, minims and so on used in British music teaching (and exams). This might be a fun way to encourage a young child in preparation for (or as a complement to) music lessons, but it's certainly no real substitute for an actual teacher. Perhaps spend the money on a couple of trial lessons instead...

Bought it for our eight year old who was rather disappointed with it as the songs were too hard for him and he put it aside to play in his electric keyboard instead. The box arrived promptly and was well wrapped, but have to say that we expected more of this item and therefore I would not recommend this to anyone else.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I gave this to my niece and she loved it. It made learning the piano fun and the exercises are really logical, simple steps. My niece's confidence was greatly built up using this package and now she is playing really well for her age - just 7!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
