Musical Training Causes Brain Plasticity
Music is a model of plasticity because of the multiple systems and the unique effects. Music training has wide ranging effects in many capacities related to perception, performance, and language with increases in brain efficiency and fewer neuronal units needed to encode information.” Dr. John Leif – Searching For The Mind
Plasticity in children
“Training affects brain structures more strongly as a child. When the training begins before age seven, neural systems are created that last a lifetime. Random samples show structural changes in auditory and motor regions in 15 months of training in children. “
"My 4 year old daughter has had this song less than a week. She originally learned to play it with the Piano Wizard software, but now she can take it to the piano and play from her book. Piano Wizard works like training wheels with the goal to get you away from the computer. My daughter is so proud of herself for being able to cross her hands over. :)"
Painlessly teaches anyone to play the piano. It gives every player instant success and joy, because they will immediately be able to play their favorite songs!
“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.”
“Piano Wizard is a revolutionary teaching platform that is changing the way kids learn piano.”
The genius of Piano Wizard is that it leverages video game technology for the purpose of teaching music.
“WE love it. I just wasn’t confident enough in my ability to teach it to the kids. But once we really watched the videos, read the info in the book, and became familiar with the software, I got really excited about it! My husband loves it too and is doing very well. Apparently his parents skipped music lessons unfortunately.”
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.
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.
With a background in training and education plus two children I’ve long believed in the philosophy “meet them where they are and help them expand from there. ” That’s exactly what Piano Wizard does.
“Learn the piano without falling asleep.”
“…seldom do we find a product that is as exciting as Piano Wizard Academy! As an editor, educator and musician, if we had medals to award along with our Editor’s Choice Award, I would certainly present Piano Wizard with the Gold Medal.”
“The stuff it teaches is valuable for players of all ages”
“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.”
What once was a difficult chore is now a fun, entertaining and rewarding experience. Our system is so easy to use, both parents, music teachers, and non-music educators can easily teach the method to their own children at home, or in a classroom. For beginners piano, Piano Wizard is a perfect way to start piano lessons for kids. They won’t get bogged down with having to first learn notation and music theory. They’ll start playing real songs immediately within 5 minutes of starting up the game.
Then, later on, as the student progresses, they may continue their music learning journey with a qualified piano teacher if so desired. What makes Piano Wizard so wonderful is that once they do, the student will be more receptive to the traditional teaching approaches as they already developed a basic understanding of basic music structure – even if they don’t even realize it!
