Piano Wizard Step One Demo. YES, even YOU can play the piano!
This is a scaled down FLASH demonstration of STEP ONE of our Piano Wizard video game learning method. You may think the layout looks familiar, but don't be fooled by imitators.
The REAL magic occurs through our progressive teaching method of step 1 - 4 - and finally, STEP 5 when you take the sheet music over to a real piano. (a real piano is not necessary for use with the game - you can use your digital keyboard in free-play mode). In this demo, just use your mouse or computer keyboard in place of a digital keyboard.
You have a virtual piano keyboard up on top, and a real MIDI piano keyboard in front of you (M-audio, Casio, Yamaha, etc). connected to your computer via USB or USB-TO-MIDI cable. The color-coded keyboard stickers match the virtual keyboard in the game. The object is simply to hit the right key on the real keyboard just when the object (balloon, caterpillar, note, etc) hits the appropriate virtual key.
What They're Saying About Piano Wizard
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.
“…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.”
“A great tool to keep kids busy learning and having fun at the same time”
While many computer programs teach music, Piano Wizard 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.
Piano Wizard also ventures where no other music games do – with advancing modes of play taking you from a beginner, all the way to fluently reading the musical scores that previously seemed like hieroglyphics.
Piano Wizard, being so intuitive a method, makes it easy to know when to push a key without having to understand spoken (or written) instructions. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product.
“How good is it? Our testers could play the songs they had learned on Piano Wizard on a real piano later that same day – without having to be nagged to do so!”
“Piano Wizard – Best Gadgets & Gizmos on The Planet 2007”
“Piano Wizard Academy is one of the best piano learning courses available for it is comprehensive, interesting, and very simple for beginners.”
Piano Wizard Academy is an effective course that produces measurable results.
“This is a complete package that is worth the investment”
Not only do I think Piano Wizard is pretty much the Cat’s Pajamas, other people have thanked me because I recommended it for them or their children or grandchildren and they’ve also gotten great results.
Simple Is Genius
As simple as the layout looks, it's powerful. Music playing is simply about hitting the right notes at the right time, and Piano Wizard teaches that like no other method can. But this is just where Piano Wizard begins...
