Music before theory

 

Teaching Piano the Way a Child Learns
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

As 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.
