When you're ready to learn to play piano, you have many choices. So why should you choose Piano Wizard Academy?
As the creator of Piano Wizard, I began a journey with a decision as a young adult that I would do whatever it took to learn to play the piano. Unfortunately, it initially appeared that I had no talent for it. Instructor after instructor, including my college music professors, told me to forget it. But I refused to give up. I was determined to master the piano.
For my Masters Thesis, I travelled to “third world” countries to study how other cultures train children to play music. What I found planted the seed for Piano Wizard. Other cultures, like the Brazilians for example, teach children music visually, not with rote practice as we do. I learned that playing music is simply hitting the right note at the right time. EVERYONE in Brazil learns to play some type of music. No one there is judged to be “musically handicapped.” Come to find out, it’s only in “Advanced” cultures like ours that anyone is told they have no gift for music.
Armed with this new information and determined to prove that ALL people have the ability to learn music, I set out to create a computer game that can teach ANYONE to learn to “hit the right note at the right time” AND learn to read the hieroglyphics of modern musical notation. My goal is universal music literacy. I truly believe it is our God-given capacity to learn to play beautiful music. Piano Wizard was the result.
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. The Piano Wizard 4-Step Method so impressed toy giant Fisher-Price, that they have licensed the patented method and are using it in creating toys for small children.
There are just so many reasons to learn to play piano with Piano Wizard.

No matter what other learning method you choose, most will end up failing mostly because traditional methods are taught contrary to the way we naturally learn. Sure, those naturally gifted will find a way to succeed. But those people will succeed no matter what approach they take. Piano Wizard has reversed the process so you or your children will be learning to play piano the natural way.
So what do we mean by the NATURAL WAY?
Music is a LANGUAGE. How did you learn your native language? (we'll assume it's English). You learned by assimilation - taking in all that was around you, hearing your parents and other relatives and friends speak to you. You learned English naturally. Then, you went to school to learn how to read.
So why should music be any different? Why do traditional methods force us to READ before PLAYING? Can you see how unnatural that is?
The traditional method of teaching piano is to immediately introduce theory and notation, making learning far more difficult than it needs to be. That is why there is such a high failure rate for most of us in learning to play. Focusing on the translation of notation as a FIRST STEP is difficult for most of us and it is one of the contributing factors making practicing painful and unenjoyable.
With Piano Wizard, notation is a NEXT STEP after the child is already playing. We've made it fun, joyful, amazingly effective, and family friendly, making it so much easier to achieve the many benefits that music learning has to offer. Piano Wizard is music learning for the rest of us! Piano Wizard Academy is a music learning system for the entire family - for life.
Your one time investment will save thousands of dollars over private lessons. We are not saying that we will replace teachers. But only after proven success with Piano Wizard does an investment in private teachers make any sense. Think of it as music lesson insurance!
