Piano Fingerings help teach you the correct fingering for each note. Guitar chords are included so a friend who is learning guitar can play along with you. Piano fingerings and guitar chords can be toggled on or off for any screen.
Instant Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes as you progress through a melody. Your computer will listen as you play and highlight correctly played notes in green. As you reach your goal of playing the melody correctly, you’ll discover that reading music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!
With Interactive Evaluation Feedback, when using an electronic MIDI-compatible keyboard, you can get specific feedback on note and rhythm mistakes made while playing to help you get it right!
Click a feedback balloon and the Animated Keyboard shows you exactly what mistake was made and what should have been played. An overall percentage score summarizes how well you did on the song.
The Animated Keyboard displays color-coded fingerings as the music plays. It allows you to see exactly how to play the song on a keyboard as you hear the music. Music tracking highlights the notes being played on the screen making it simple to follow along.
The Note and Finger Tracker tools show you the note you play as music notation and on eMedia’s Animated Keyboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing and learn to read music faster!
Reviews and Ear Training Quizzes help reinforce new concepts and develop your ear.
Live-recorded multitrack audio is included for all songs and exercises. Audio playback options include piano only, voice only, and full audio featuring both piano and vocal performances.
Use the variable-speed MIDI tracks to slow the music down to any tempo, and the Animated Keyboard will show the fingerings in time. You can play along and learn at the pace best suited to you!
MIDI playback options let you hear the left- or right-hand parts in isolation or just the metronome track, if you like. Colorfully arranged accompaniments are also available and can be a joy to play along with!
