Piano Wizard Academy was founded at Southern Illinois University and taught by Don and Delanya Beattie. The success of this college course convinced us to incorporate the Academy into piano teaching software. These lessons were designed after years of research as to how to best utilize the game in a classroom or private study setting.
It is especially good at teaching students of a especially good at teaching students of all ages to hit the right notes at the right time, and then to READ the songs they learned in musical notation. Best of all, they LOVE to practice. THIS IS THE BEST USE OF THE ACADEMY, in the hands of a qualified dedicated piano teacher or music educator, even though non-music educators and parents can make great strides on their own.
We at Piano Wizard Academy thank you for your interest and support in bringing music education to your students. As clearly shown in our Benefits and Review sections, there are many positive academic and psychological benefits from being involved in a music education experience. The goal in designing the Piano Wizard Academy, Piano Wizard Academy Summer Camps, school, home-school and after school programs is to allow ALL teachers, both music educators and non- music educators, access to this breakthrough music education program technology; thus, supporting our students.
The combination of the technology and Music Wizard Method in the Piano Wizard software, the Academy supplements, and your support will bring about a revolution in music education benefiting our students for generations to come.
All teachers, whether having a musical background or not, can utilize the Piano Wizard Method. Our process, based on Professor Don Beattie’s proven curriculum, affords the teacher all the tools needed to share this experience with their students. The instructional video lessons reinforce the hands on instruction and can be viewed, and practiced at school and at home. The teacher can even add their own songs to the game. Think of yourself as a coach, guiding the students to play the game they love better.
The Piano Wizard and Piano Wizard Academy products DO NOT replace music teachers. In fact, our product acts as reinforcement and adjunct to traditional music lessons. The DVD and Songbook lessons teach educators to mentor their students in how to move to the next level. Both non-music and music educators are guided in the integration of this program into their music education classes.The Piano Wizard and Music Wizard Method allows the student to learn to read music notation through a combination of variety and repetition, using a creative and fun technique designed to reduce the attrition rate significantly.
Real music is in the phrasing, the emotion, the dynamics, and the technique. It is a fundamentally shared human experience that is best created in the presence of others. We learn best by teaching, even if we are only an hour or two ahead of our students!
