Music before theory
Teaching Piano the Way a
Traditional piano lessons teach musical notation first. But
most children don't want to wade through the hieroglyphics before they get to
play. They want to play now.
With Piano Wizard
PREMIER, your child is playing the piano the instant the game is started.
They learn intuitively to hit the right note at the
right time. Gradually, as their skill level advances, so does the game.
Before you know it, your child has learned to read music.
Beginner Level: Objects
move from bottom to top
Your child can choose from several
different fantasy worlds to play in. Each musical note is represented by a
different character that corresponds to that world. As each character lands
on one of the keys shown on the colored keyboard at the top of the computer
screen, your child presses the corresponding key on their own colored
keyboard in order to hear the song.
Intermediate Level: Objects
move from right to left
your child's skill level advances, the colored keyboard at the top of the
computer screen rotates from its parallel position to a position that is
perpendicular to your child's own keyboard. The musical notes are still
represented by characters, but now your child begins to get accustomed to
reading music in its traditional horizontal format.
Transition Level: Objects
converted to colored notes
At this stage of musical development, the
fantasy world your child has been playing in, as well as its corresponding
characters, all are replaced by traditional music notation. The notes are
still colored, however, to match your child's colored keyboard.
Advanced Level: Standard black music notation
When your child is ready, all backgrounds
and colors are removed completely. Because your child learned to play the
music first, hand/eye coordination and skills like pitch, rhythm and reflexes
are all second nature. Your child is now able to view notation as a map to
playing music, rather than as frustrating hieroglyphics.
Piano Wizard is the music learning video
game that painlessly teaches anyone to play the piano. It gives every

game's patented sound and color learning cues transform tedious and
repetitive practice sessions into an exciting and rewarding video game
experience for people of all ages and musical abilities.
Piano Wizard is a lifetime learning tool and
family entertainment center. The game never wears out and never gets boring
because you control the musical content. It uses thousands of MIDI
song files available in music stores and on the
internet as the basis of each musical game experience.
Players, parents, and music teachers can
up-load any song into the game, instantly creating a new video game
experience or music lesson every time. Thousands of songs are
available from Bach to the Beatles, including religious hymns and
The game teaches children as young as 3 to
play the piano.
Piano Wizard's secret agenda is to teach
everyone to read music and play the piano just by having fun - playing a
non-violent video game.
Because Piano Wizard only uses POSITIVE
REINFORCEMENT it's specifically designed to quickly build a player's
confidence and self-esteem. The game automatically rewards players for
touching the right note and ignores mistakes, encouraging and conditioning
players with fun and entertainment, to keep them practicing and playing
while they learn practical music and piano skills. (Suitable for ages 3+)
