Piano Wizard Overview

How it all started

Play your favorite songs

MusicTraditional 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.

But 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?

What if the piano teacher was patient, kind, encouraging and always ready to help?

What if you and your kids LOVED to practice and play together and learned 2, 3 or even 5 times faster than traditional lessons?

What if for the cost of just one child, your whole family could learn, for life?

What is Piano Wizard?

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?piano-wizard-with-keyboard

Piano Wizard makes practicing 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!) This 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!

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.

Piano-Wizard-next-gen-4-stepsFocusing 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's 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 effortlessly, playing from muscle memory acquired through the first 4 steps.  Now THAT's truly evolutionary!

academy bundleFrom Zero To Beethoven In Two Weeks

Our software video game was just the beginning. Born out of a two week "boot camp"  we created a complete course. (watch the video on the left). This resulted in an accredited college course taught at Southern Illinois University.

We realized that not everyone would be able to attend the Academy, so we brought in the cameras and recorded the lessons. These DVDs - combined with songbooks and hundreds of dollars worth of bonuses from select partners - create a compelling and complete piano learning system designed to simply and intuitively teach you and/or your children how to play the piano and read music. It requires no previous experience and it makes the process fun.

The complete Acadmey provides the equivalent of 2 years children's level piano lessons and round out the course into a highly effective, unique, and fun music learning experience.

Watch a sample Academy lesson

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?[/two_third_last]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.

You'll save THOUSANDS of dollars over traditional piano lessons.

piano-lesson-costsAt 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.


Music Learning For The Rest Of Us

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.

We do not fail the SYSTEM. The system FAILS US. But there is a solution.
Piano Wizard Academy brings music learning and all of it's powerful benefits to the rest of us.

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."
