Discover the #1 piano learning software game system that the world loves to play.
While many computer programs teach music, Piano Wizard turns any song from Bach to Billy Joel into a video game. No more boring drills, frustration, or nagging. Just play!
A unique parent-child bonding experience through music
“Music education apps are more productive in this department, but usually fall flat in enjoyment and substance. Piano Wizard could single-handedly change that, pairing engaging mechanics with increasingly challenging game-play.”
When I was playing at CEO Space I could hardly keep from crying because I know how this is going to bring my girls and I together and teach them the joy and uplifting power that creating music has on their soul.
The genius of Piano Wizard is that it leverages video game technology for the purpose of teaching music.
“First and foremost, I feel that learning to play piano needs to be an enjoyable experience otherwise there’s little motivation to continue. Piano Wizard has made it enjoyable for us.”
“…getting smarter note by note!”
“…an easier way to get your child from Chopsticks to Chopin. It was nice to find a computer video game that actually teaches something significant.”
My children have been playing Piano Wizard for 10 years now. I have built this into their homeschooling schedule. Megan, now 13 can play 6 instruments. I believe that the early start was crucial.
“The real selling point of this program is its ability to teach children. Simply put, our staff has concluded that this is the best online piano lesson program for children.”
“I just want to personally thank the people who created this awesome way to teach kids to play the piano, I wish I knew about this when i was younger, I’m 18 now …. Piano Wizard will make a huge difference!”
“Piano Wizard takes away the drudgery of old-time piano lessons bringing them up-to-date in our every changing, exciting world of musical media.”
Piano Wizard Academy is an effective course that produces measurable results.
Piano Wizard, being so intuitive a method, makes it easy to know when to push a key without having to understand spoken (or written) instructions. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product.
What if you could put training wheels on a piano? (Well we did…kind of )
The Piano Wizard Academy™ program combines the genius of our software with our tutorial DVDs and Songbook lessons.
Our revolutionary 4-step color coded method magically transforms the learning experience into a stimulating and fun video game.
Our “natural” learning method can teach anyone to play piano and read music in minutes. Easy enough for a 3 year old, yet challenging and scalable for an experienced player.
Studies show that normal attrition rates for piano lessons among the general population can approach 80 percent.
In addition to the high drop out rates among beginning music students are the subtle scars to the soul that many who give up on music can carry with them as a result of the frustrating or even humiliating experiences related to music lessons as a child.
What is Piano Wizard Academy?
The truth is most children want to learn music but they think they’re not talented, or fear it’s too hard and requires too much work. Remember when you were a child, and practice was so boring, repetitive, and torturous that you finally just gave up?
What if there were a simple and engaging learning system, where children of any age could learn how to play piano in minutes, and enjoy the benefits of a lifetime of music?
Practicing is now fun and even addictive, with instant feedback and rewards, all in the form of a video game. (they don’t even know they are practicing!)
Piano Wizard Academy is simply the most innovative music learning system available. In fact, it’s the ONLY method that teaches music by emulating the way we NATURALLY learn our native language. Through the game’s visual, auditory, and feedback, we can unleash the inner musician in anyone and prepare a whole new generation of Mozarts!
Our award winning 4-step game engine and music before theory approach empowers virtually anyone to take any piece of music and play it. Instead of struggling to learn to play piano, you’ll PLAY-to-READ-to-LEARN, almost subconsciously, learning to read music along the way too!
Traditional methods teach contrary to the way we naturally learn our native language, resulting in failure for most of us.
For example, we learn to speak our language before going to school to learn how to read. Would we expect a child to learn how to read before they learn how to speak?
The traditional method of teaching piano is to immediately introduce theory and notation, making learning unnatural and far more difficult than it needs to be.
No wonder most just give up. Difficult notation, music theory, boring drills, and a whole lot of nagging are NOT the solution, though many have tried.
Focusing on the translation of the hieroglyphics of music notation as a FIRST STEP is one of the contributing factors making practicing painful and unenjoyable. With Piano Wizard, notation is a NEXT STEP after the student is already playing REAL SONGS.
Don’t be fooled by other similar looking video games that look like step 1. That is where most end. We take you through 4 steps from playing a game to playing piano and reading music. By the time music is notation is revealed, it is simply looked at as a map of the game! But the REAL magic is not in the game.
Step 5 is when you take it to a REAL piano (or digital keyboard) with the sheet music. You are now reading sheet music almost effortly, playing from muscle memory acquired through the first 4 steps. Now THAT’s truly evolutionary!
Piano Wizard bridges the gap between sheet music and your keyboard.
One of the biggest hurdles for people learning to read music is the lack of a clear one-to-one relationship between the notes on a piece of sheet music and the keys on the keyboard. Piano Wizard gently eases the player into learning that connection so crucial to learning to read music.
There are 2 basic dimensions of music:
- Pitch (which note, color coded for easy identification in the game).
- Rhythm, or time, (revealed by showing the original logic of space between notes to show the correct time to play them).
Because the player can ANTICIPATE when to play the note, their innate hand-eye coordination is all they need to play the music of the masters, in seconds.
Pitch and Time are the skeleton, upon which all the rest hangs. Get that right, and you have a basic form, from which you can BEGIN to create great music. After all, music is simply about hitting the right notes at the right time. Piano Wizard does that all for you ingeniously.
Anyone can play REAL songs with a REAL digital keyboard within minutes without ever having played a note before. No need for sheet music. Oh, and did we say it’s a video game? The DVD lessons are just as much fun to watch, although they are actually intended for parents and teachers to help guide and support the children and students.
After you’ve mastered our 100 lesson curriculum, there’s another 100 songs to play already in the game. You can also download MIDI FILES from the Internet, import them and they automatically render to a game. Play and learn your favorite songs from your favorite artists…the Piano Wizard way.
Family Friendly – Non-Violent – Wholesome Fun and real music learning.
You’ll bond with your children in a unique way. You’ll want to play the game when the kids go to sleep. Your kids will get so excited when they earn their star stickers as they progress through each lesson. And they’ll make you proud.
At less than about $5 per lesson, the entire family can enjoy this expandable music learning system for LIFE (… and that INCLUDES a KEYBOARD).
Our mission is not to replace or knock the efforts of great piano teachers, but rather feed more students into the music process. Why throw away all that money on lessons that may not work – or even worse turn off a student to music playing for life?
And why settle for other programs that put their own spin on the same old tired ineffective backwards approach to music learning? While a small percentage of us that are musically gifted may benefit, the results are basically the same for the majority.
Shatter the restraints of traditional music learning while retaining the organic ability to handle even Bach like complexity. We’ll take you from ZERO to BEETHOVEN – BACH to BON JOVI in no time – GUARANTEED!
Simply put, music training can have profound effects on a child, sometimes life-changing. Adults too can experience permanent changes in brain structure with continued training and experiencing decreasing memory loss and increasing cognition. Piano Wizard makes it easy and fun to achieve these important benefits while eliminating the frustration and failure of traditional methods.
Neuroplasticity – Building a Better Brain.
“Music training has demonstrated unique effects on learning, perception, performance, and language, with increases in brain efficiency and fewer neuronal units needed to encode information. It increases other abilities, an affect called metaplasticity.” John Lieff M.D, Searching For The Mind. The problem is that choosing the wrong teacher or learning methods can wipe all these potential benefits out…FOREVER.
“My son Jed is severely mentally challenged. It would have been impossible for him to learn to play piano the normal way. Even his communication skills and self esteem as he mastered the songs has shown great improvement. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product.”May Shamp

What They’re Saying About Piano Wizard Academy
“I don’t know if I am sending this email to the right address or not but I just had to write and say THANK YOU! I installed the program last night. Today is Saturday and my kids (12 and 11 years old) are still in their pajamas. They had been playing Piano wizard all morning. They have already mastered song 10! And I have to tell you that it is so much fun that I have been playing too.
I was worried about the transition to the real piano but (you will laugh at this) I called my friend and put the phone on “speaker phone” so I could play for her. I have no music background at all and it was a breeze! My friend was most impressed. She is coming over next week to try it out.
Yay!! Finally a music program that works. We LOVE it!! Thanks so much!”The Uling Family
“Piano Wizard Academy is Awesome! Not only could this person who failed abysmally at piano lessons as a child learn how to play within a couple hours, I’ve gained countless hours of pleasure since I first started. I love that Piano Wizard offers such a wide variety of music and is always updating their selection.”L. Sugarman
