Learn To Play Piano With Our New Piano Learning App For iPad And iPhone.
Our revolutionary music education video game is coming soon to your mobile device.
What's the difference between the APP and Piano Wizard Academy?
Our Piano Wizard APP for iPad and iPhone is an introduction to our Academy method. Since the screen is small, the integrated keyboard covers 1 1/2 octaves. This allows the user to learn the melody, yet still be able to use left and right hands. Once the player has successfully mastered levels one through four, bonus level 5 is revealed. At this point the player can print out the sheet music and take it over to a real piano.
The APP includes 20 lessons from our Academy, plus 10 holiday songs.
You'll quickly discover how easy and fun it is to really learn to play piano and you'll be ready to move on to our complete Piano Wizard Academy Family Pack and take music learning to the max!
The Piano Wizard 4 Step Method
|Step One - When a song begins, color-coded objects will scroll from the bottom to the top of the screen. The color of the object corresponds with the color of the key to press. When the object reaches the top of the screen, it scrolls over one of the color-coded keys. Your goal as a player is to press the same key on your bottom keyboard at the moment that the object passes over the top key hitting the yellow line.|
|In the second step of Piano Wizard, the top keyboard rotates to the left side of the screen. Now the objects scroll from right to left instead of from bottom to top. This is how you can see how music notation orientates pitch vertically, and how the piano relates to that. We just turned the orientation 90 degrees counterclockwise, so high on the vertical keyboard is right hand, and low is the left hand. Now the player is starting to learn the basics of reading music. This is the most basic lesson of Piano Wizard; that music is a moving color-coded grid of pitch and time.|
|In the third level, the color-coded objects become musical notes on a musical staff. Now the transition to reading music is almost complete. The color of the note is still its most important characteristic as far as the player is concerned. But he or she is also becoming comfortable with the look of musical notes on the staff in different variations and lengths – whole notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, sharps, dotted notes, and so on. This is where we advise you use decide on simple fingerings to transition the user from color coding to fingering with color coding, then to level 4 fingering. Later you will find in the sheet music fingering suggestions as well that can help memorize pieces and read with more ease.|
|In the fourth level, the colors are ignored, and the on-screen notes change from color-coded to black. At this point, you’re reading notes as much as they would be written on a piece of sheet music, although the notes continue to scroll across the screen.
Once step four has been mastered, you are ready to continue to the sheet music stage, Step (or level) 5.
|ABC News correspondent Buck Wolf says, “While many computer programs teach music, Piano Wizard Premier turns anything from Bach to Billy Joel into a video game in which you’ll be guiding a rocket ship with a color-coated keyboard, while picking out a tune and learning chord progressions.”-ABC News|
|“Two days after purchasing piano wizard, my son went to his piano lessons and his teacher said he was a “new piano man!” She couldn’t believe how well he came in playing even though he’s only had your product for 2 days. Her comment was: “whatever it cost, it was worth every penny!” I am just so thrilled that we actually purchased something that is making a difference!”-Julie S. -Mom in Texas|
