The KeyMusician Keyboard

Take 2 minutes to view this video, and quickly learn about the instrument:

Though the easiest way to play it, is using the numeric keypad for chords, and playing melody on the main part of the keyboard, you’re not limited to that, and can use both hands on the melody section, as above.

If you would like us to show you everything about the KeyMusician Keyboard in one video, please watch the video below.

Note:  Until more of the video-lessons planned are available, the application is available at a lower, introductory price, than quoted in the video, and you will still have access to the new training videos, as they become available.  If you want to read and explore on your own, watching short demo-videos, scroll-down and view the information below.

Convert your computer with just a typing keyboard, into a performance-quality musical instrument, so new and innovative, that it’s Patent-Pending! 

Instantly play any note within an 84-note range, so there’s no need to shift octaves up, or down. 

Its capabilities are so great, that this is the only instrument most people will ever want, or need.

It’s easier to play than a traditional music keyboard!  Really.  How can this be?  

For beginners, it’s not even necessary to translate from the note in the written music, to the keyboard note to play.  Just touch (on a touch-screen) or mouse-click, in the musical staff lines, where the note goes, and the note appears, and plays.  And you can even play chords that way. 

Watch this video to see how easily this can be done – in any key-signature! 

Note:  Though this isn’t an optimal way of playing the instrument, it’s super cool!  It’s also probably the only musical instrument not requiring you to translate from note, to fingering.

But the biggest reason it’s easier than a traditional music keyboard, is that it automatically plays in the specified key-signature. 

You don’t have to spend hours learning to instinctively play certain black-keys instead of white-keys, for each key-signature! 

And in the rare case you need a note not in the key-signature (called an accidental), it’s as easy as typing an-upper-case letter in an e-mail.

Teaching aids are built into the application, teaching you to read, and play music, and needless complexity is handled by software.  It always shows you the notes you are playing, in the context of the key-signature.

Changing key-signatures (and even instrument-sounds) can be done instantly, just by pressing a function-key, even while holding out notes and chords.

Watch how easy it is to play the instrument (the normal way), using a typing keyboard.

The video below is filmed from the point of view as if you were sitting at the computer, playing the application.  The main window has been re-sized for better visibility.

It starts out playing Flute (with Piano/Strings chords) in a key-signature having 4 sharps, then changes to Cello in a key-signature of 5 flats.

It demonstrates a lot of the application’s abilities (including how playing a chord with accidentals introduces accidentals into the melody), so watch closely.  You might want to click the full-screen tool to get a closer look.

In the world of music, the future is here today!  We have your flying car – It’s the KeyMusician Keyboard!

What you need to run the KeyMusician Keyboard application:

  • A computer, running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux – a tablet works only if it runs one of these three OS’s
  • A physical keyboard, having a separate numeric key-pad (because you need to play the keys by feel, and keep your eyes on the music) – it could plug-in to a USB port
  • A sound system for your computer (because the sound of the instrument should inspire the musician)
  • A screen resolution of at least 1024 pixels wide, by 670 pixels high

Learn to play chords-with-melody music in about 5 minutes!

Teaching to play chords-with-melody music in 5 minutes

We’ve shown the KeyMusician Keyboard at a number of public events.

For every person who was interested, and had the time to spend learning, they were playing chords-with-melody music on their own, in about 5 minutes.

Kids took to it like a duck to water, saying, “This is really cool!” Another kid said, “This sure beats Mine Craft.”

But it works for adults too, including YOU!

Watch the video, where Malcolm shows Alaina how to improvise chords-with-melody music in about 5 minutes!

It’s easy to play chords on the numeric-keypad with the KeyMusician Keyboard.  Learn how by watching the video below.

What is the KeyMusician Keyboard?

It’s an application that converts an ordinary computer, with just a typing-keyboard, into a performance-quality musical instrument.  It’s not just a way to play music with a typing keyboard – it’s a new musical instrument.

What is the KeyMusician Keyboard like?

It’s like a super-versatile accordion, with nearly a full piano keyboard for the melody.  It can sound like any musical instrument you want.  You play both chords and melody at the same time.  You play melody on the main part of the typing-keyboard, and chords on the numeric-keypad.

How Is It Useful For Different People?


Learn to read and play music (both chords and melody) in a month, with about 20 hours worth of effort.  The music lessons come with the application.  It’s easier to learn to play than a guitar.

If you had piano lessons as a kid, and gave up, this gives you another chance, and you will succeed this time.  It only takes months – not years!

You can play hundreds of different instrument sounds, all with one learning.

And after learning to play it, it has advanced musical capabilities, allowing you to grow in musicianship and performing with the instrument.

For example, you can easily do gradually-louder or gradually-softer phrases of music, with quick restore to original volume, all with the typing-keyboard.

If you later want to add touch/velocity sensitivity (and single touch accidentals), simply connect a MIDI keyboard to the application, and you still retain the “same fingering in every key-signature” capabilities (which means you still don’t need to practice all those boring scales in every different key-signature).

Also, if you want to play music entirely in the melody section of the typing keyboard, simply get a gamers’ keyboard, which will allow many more simultaneous notes to be played.

This is the ideal instrument for beginners, and will probably be the only instrument you ever want, or need. 

And if you later want to learn a traditional instrument, you already know how to read music (and chords), and are about a third of the way to learning to play the new instrument.


Leverage your knowledge of chords into playing piano, or hundreds of other instruments, without taking months (or years) to acquire keyboard technique.  Add amazing new sounds of other instruments (including new electronic instruments) to your band.

Chords are easy (you simply ‘name’ the chord in the music in a few quick keystrokes), and you can easily play melody (even if you can’t currently read music) – all in a month of effort.

The real-time display of the notes you play, makes it easy to enter the world of classical guitar.

Expert Musicians:

You’ll be amazed at the advanced musical capabilities at your finger-tips, in this easily-portable instrument.  The modal chord system (along with having the same fingering in every key-signature) makes improvising with other musicians a breeze.

You can play very high notes, and very low notes at the same time, with just one hand, without needing to use the sustain-pedal, thus avoiding ‘blurring’ the melody notes together.

As one person, you can easily improvise the sound of an entire string orchestra.  There are examples of this in our demos.

You don’t need to do orchestration in your head – simply play transitions from one instrument to another, and hear what it sounds like.  Incrementally add more and more parts to a piece.

Nowadays, it’s easier and more cost-effective to get amazing new sounds for your computer, rather than buying expensive synthesizer hardware.  And the documentation gives you an easy introduction on how to do it.

Wonder how you could use this in a rock-band?  Check out this KeyMusician Newsletter article about doing just that:

A Rock-Band With The KeyMusician Keyboard

Music Teachers:

Your set of potential clients grows from people having a playable piano (or other musical instrument), to all those having a working computer (a much larger group of people).

Your students will learn much faster, and fewer will give up and drop out.  They also experience the joy of playing the music they like, much sooner.

How can it be so easy to learn to play?

Musical intelligence is programmed into the application, leaving you free to be creative.

It plays within the specified key-signature (flats & sharps) – you don’t need to learn what black-keys or white-keys to use in each key-signature.  The easily-accessible chords follow you as you change key-signatures.  And you can finger the next chord while you’re playing the current chord!

It’s easier to play chords with melody, rather than multiple simultaneous parts.  By doing it this way, you also avoid the simultaneous key-press limitations of most typing-keyboards.  And you don’t have to learn what notes make up the various chords – it does that for you.

The notes you play are shown in simplified music-notation, within the context of the current key-signature, including any accidentals (flats, sharps, naturals, double-flats, and double-sharps) required.  You simply match what you play (displayed) with what you see in the music, and you get instant, constant feed-back.

You can always play the melody with just one hand – even when its notes pass the end of a keyboard row.

How much simpler is it to play chords and melody, as opposed to regular piano music?

Here is a sample of piano music (from Ravel’s “Pavane For A Dead Princess”).  Notice that both hands (as well as 6 fingers, and even your pedal foot) are doing different things.

Below is the same phrase in the music (but a different key-signature), arranged for the KeyMusician Keyboard, from the KeyMusician Songbook:

Which one looks less complicated?  Instead of doing 7 things at once (with the piano part), you’re doing two things at once (chords and melody).

Can music that simple sound good?  The demo video below, is of this piece being played.  See for yourself.

Learning to play multiple, independent parts, is probably the most difficult thing in learning to play piano, and the main reason it takes years.

With pop music, you just ignore the piano part, and play the solo part and the chords.  Easy – you can do this!

This demo is an excerpt from Ravel’s famous “Pavane for a Dead Princess”, done as an Oboe solo with string accompaniment (in the chords).  To play the same music using the French Horn (the way Ravel introduces the theme), simply click the “Base Octave” spin-control down by 1, and play the same keys you did with the Oboe, now transposed to a better range for the French Horn.   You can actually play this piece. It’s included in the KMK Songbook:

Turn your computer into a Quality Musical Instrument.

Then —

In about 15 hours (or less) in the next month, you can begin to use it to play, and perform, your favorite music.

So many traditional music instruments are simply hard to learn, and expensive, too.

This new instrument has:

  • Performance Quality Sound.
  • 84 keys (7 octaves) for the melody.
  • While playing melody, play chords on the numeric keypad with either the same or a different instrument.
  • You can finger the next chord while playing the current one.
  • Fingering is the same in any key – no black-key/white-key decisions.
  • Change instruments and/or key-signature in a single keystroke.
  • Easier to play than a piano keyboard.
  • You probably already have the hardware.

We give you a new musical instrument, that people are amazed with.

We teach you how to play it.

We also teach, for those new to music, how to read and play music, or improvise music with others.

“I was a non-musician, having failed at school band.  Yet with the KeyMusician Keyboard, I was playing the song by Enya, ‘Only Time’ with about an hour of effort, both chords and melody, in a key signature with 3 flats, and with a full rich sound”.   –Malcolm

This is not like any typing-keyboard music application you’ve seen before.

What Performing at an Arts Festival Looks Like

If you can push the typing keys on your computer, you can play the KeyMusician Keyboard.   In fact, you start typing letters, to show yourself that you can make music on a typing keyboard, then you can quickly leave this, and go to playing from actual sheet music.

You have a full 84-key keyboard (not just 25 keys), and you play chords simultaneously using the numeric keypad.

What does the full keyboard range of 84 keys sound like (running your finger over all the keys)?

This demo (below) shows what it sounds like to run your fingers over all the keys of the keyboard, both low-to-high, and high-to-low. Notice that you can simultaneously play the highest and lowest note on the keyboard with just one hand.

  • A musical instrument easy enough to learn to play, that within a month, a non-musician can be playing songs (both chords, and melody, having any number of flats or sharps) from their favorite books of sheet-music
  • Anyone with just a computer (even an older, slower computer), and a typing keyboard, has a quality musical instrument, with performance-quality sound that inspires, and never gets out of tune
  • A way of playing real music, with only a typing keyboard, giving you a full 84 keys – 7 octaves (4 keys less than a full piano keyboard), and includes the equivalent of a sustain-pedal and a volume-pedal
  • You can play hundreds of chords using the numeric keypad, simultaneously with the melody, and using a different instrument-sound
  • An easy introduction into the world of music software, on Windows®, Macintosh®, and Linux
  • An instrument easy to start-out with, yet with plenty of advanced features and abilities you can grow with
  • Not just a piano, accordion, or guitar sound, but the sounds of hundreds of instruments, and the chord instrument-sounds can be different from the melody
  • You can change the melody-instruments with a single key-stroke, even while holding out a chord
  • Fade out a note you are playing, then return to original volume with a single keystroke.

Can you play real piano music with this? Check out the short video below, showcasing an excerpt of Claude Debussy’s famous piece ‘Clair De Lune’:

Demo-ClairDeLune 0:53

Look at these neat features:

  • The fingering is always the same (in both the chords, and the melody) regardless how many flats or sharps are in the key-signature – no black-key/white-key decisions
  • You can be fingering the next chord while you are playing the current chord
  • You play chords, not by contorting your fingers into complicated shapes, but by ‘naming’ the chord you see in the sheet-music, in a few quick key-strokes
  • The instrument is very portable – all you need is a laptop with an amplifier, a modern boom-box, or speakers on your computer, and you can play it either sitting in a chair (with the keyboard on your knees), or standing up (with a harness or stand for the keyboard)
  • Add another USB typing-keyboard, and you have the equivalent of “piano 4-hands” – add another, and it’s “piano 6-hands”…
  • Real-time, music-notation graphics display of what you’re playing, and/or what you’re playing along-with (and trying to match)
  • Any ‘accidentals’ (notes that are not part of the key-signature) used in the chords, are automatically introduced into the melody (so you don’t have to play them manually)
  • Set up ‘racks’ of 10 different instruments (chosen from hundreds) for any piece (or performance), and switch to any of them instantly (in a single key-stroke)

The demo below brings to mind a Spanish Guitar sound. The chords are played using a string ensemble (which has a sustained sound), but the main tune is ‘strummed’ by playing the melody notes with a very short delay between the notes of each chord. It’s easy to train your fingers to do this. Watch the video below:

Solo Guitar melody, with orchestral chords is fine, but can the KeyMusician Keyboard play Guitar all by itself, and sound good? 

Watch this video of a solo Guitar improvisation on the KeyMusician Keyboard, and see what you think.

Did you see in the video where the key-signature changed?  It’s like changing the capo on a guitar in about a half-second.

Also, with the real-time display of the notes, and ease of playing melody, it makes sense to go directly to classical Guitar, rather than sticking with strumming chords.

In the above video (with both hands on the melody keys), we used a gamers’ keyboard with anti-ghosting (to allow a lot more simultaneous key-presses), but you can do almost the same thing by simply adding another keyboard (one for each hand).

We’re also using DimensionPro as the synthesizer, with its “Layered” “Steel Guitar & Strings” voice, which has a very good sound.

While playing, you see the notes you play in music-notation, as well as key-presses of a traditional music keyboard diagram, in real-time. You play sheet-music by matching the notes displayed (that you play) with what you see in the sheet-music, key-signature and all.

The keys are arranged in such a way, that you can always play the melody with just one hand – even when the melody passes the end of a keyboard row.

You normally play only notes of the current key-signature, but when you need to play that occasional accidental (a note not in the key-signature), it’s as easy as a typing a capital-letter in an e-mail.

This is a new way to play music. Of course you do not know how to play it, but that could change fairly quickly.  Hey — you can be the first in your world to amaze others.  But we also show you how to gain confidence in this, within a few short hours.

“After only a short time of me trying with KeyMusician, this began to be fun”. — Laron

Learn to play music in three different ways – whichever suits you:

  1. Learn to play from sheet-music, skipping the ‘beginner’ books, and going for the music you really like.  It’s easy enough to learn to play, that you can actually do that.   Playing the music you love, is rewarding enough to keep you practicing.   It doesn’t take years of practice to get to that point.   As with a guitar, you play the chords, but with this, you also play the melody.   Playing melody (solo part) and chords, is easier than playing several independent simultaneous parts, as you would learn playing the piano.  But you can learn that as well.
  2. Play along with your favorite MIDI music downloaded from the Internet.  The notes of the piece are shown in red, the notes you play are shown in blue, and when they match, they turn green.  Playback will slow way-down (if necessary), waiting for you to hit the right note, then proceed at normal speed.  The software lets you know how well you are doing, and you can keep track of your progress.  Many MIDI-files are provided for you to learn with.
  3. Using the guide, “If it sounds good to you, it’s good”, Improvise your own music, playing along with the music of others.  You become a ‘virtual’ member of your favorite band, first playing lower, sustained notes (learning the harmony), adding to what’s there, then becoming better, and adding interesting music to the whole piece. Before you know it, you can even play any of the parts entirely by-ear.  This is probably the easiest, most natural, and most productive way to learn music.  Several pieces of music are provided for you to improvise along-with.

Tutorials, supplemental music, and exercises, are provided to get you started in learning music in each of these ways.

 Be Your Own Band

The application includes an integrated MIDI player and recorder (sequencer). You can record one part, then (while that part plays back), play along with (and later record) a new part. This process can be repeated, adding more and more parts.

What does it look like?

Here is a picture of the application, doing something complex for the user, which was played with only 4 keystrokes.

If you’re playing just one part in a band (and not needing to play chords), you can use the numeric keypad for controlling the loudness/softness (dynamics) of the music you play, using the Dynamics Pad (shown below) in place of the Chords Pad:

Numeric Keypad – Dynamics Window

Expressive drumming on a typing-keyboard?  With the Dynamics Pad shown above, it’s not only possible, but very versatile, with a 48-instrument drum set.

Watch the quick tutorial below to see how.  If you use the full-screen tool in the video, you can see the controls and notes better.

It’s easier to learn to use than a word processor, and you probably already use a word processor.  Like a word processor, there are several things you use a lot, and many things that you use rarely.  Notice that there is a ‘Help’ button on every window of the application.

The rock-sounding piece below illustrates how you can play both the Bass Guitar part, and the Solo Guitar part with just your left hand, while playing chords with your right hand. The chords are played using the String Ensemble sound (per the composer’s liking), but they could just as easily have been done with distortion guitars as well.

Okay, it’s easy to learn.  But is there ‘room’ for the budding musician to grow with it?


  • Add a gamers’ keyboard, with anti-ghosting on all of the keys (10-key roll-over will give you a simultaneous note for every finger), and you can play with both hands on the melody section
  • Play VST instruments, having a superior sound, and you also eliminate any perceptible latency
  • Connect a MIDI keyboard, or MIDI synthesizer, for touch-sensitive expression, and instant accidentals
  • A different technique, along with the compact keyboard arrangement, gives you a wonderful new sound you can’t duplicate on a traditional keyboard, and the sustain-pedal control is seldom needed
  • Use layered-sounds, so those ethereal high notes (not useful on a piano because they fade away so fast) just seem to shimmer, hanging in space

Here’s a demo video, showing playing music through the application, using a MIDI keyboard.  All of the ease-of-playing features, and training materials, also work with a MIDI keyboard:

Here is a demo showing a different musical technique.  You play chords with your left hand, and melody with your right hand, up higher than the normal range, at the same time playing a bass-line with the thumb of your right hand down very low, which ‘grounds’ the piece.

This allows the chords to be played higher, where they sound sweeter.  Watch the note-display in the video.  The chords are in the middle, with the bass-line down low, and the melody up high.

This is a simple piece, but with amazing sound, containing a key-signature change, and also an instrument-change with key-signature change, played with both hands on the melody section.  There’s a massive spread-out chord at the end.  Watch for it.

Give yourself about 15 hours over the next month.  You will be amazed at what your fingers can play.

We are so sure of this, that we have a 30 day, no-hassle, no gripe guarantee!  If you try this, and do not like it for any reason at all, just tell us and we will promptly give your money back.

“We played the KeyMusician Keyboard in church last weekend, and the leader said that it was great to have an organ, and the rest of the orchestra, finally in church!” — Malcolm

Think of it — in a few weeks, you could be “Making Music Yours” ™, with some of the best instrument sounds around.  You will have around 158 melodic instruments, and 48 drum/percussion instruments.  You can easily play hundreds of chords, with a performance quality sound.

All from one instrument.

All from one learning.

All from one effort.


You could go the more traditional route, and get say a piano-

I love piano.  With a good player, it has so many moods, it was a top technology for the year 1720.

But, to take piano lessons for example, you would pay to get six strong guys to bring a piano into your home, (a ‘playable’  ‘student’ piano might be $1000 to $3000 up), and you would have to periodically hire a piano tuner to maintain it.

Then there are the weekly lessons, at maybe $20 or more, a pop, once a week at least.  in a year that is 20 x 52 = $1040, and then after all of this, there is no guarantee of success.  You are already in this for $2000 to $3500+ for the first year.

It takes about 3-5 years to be good on piano. That adds to about $6,000 – $10,000.

Music publishers will tell you that for every 100 copies of ‘Piano method book 1’ sold, there are only about 5 ‘Piano Method Book 2’ sold.

This is a dropout rate of 95%,  and then there is book 3, and then book 4, which even fewer students see.  Playing piano is more difficult than many people realize.

Then there are the strings– Violin, Cello, Bass.

These have a sound that can move one to tears, or joy– in the right hands.

But to be the ‘right hands’ may take you at least 3 years of lessons maybe once a week.  A ‘starter’ Violin can be $500-$700.  Lessons for these, can run $20-$50 per half hour, weekly.  And you need to practice, practice, practice.  These are some of the more expensive instruments, as can be the lessons.

The Guitar?

A good one can start at about $400, and if you stick with only 3 or 4 chords, they are fairly easy to play at a basic level, after getting over the pain of growing  calluses on your fingers.  But to truly master guitar takes years.  Just look at the finger contortions that you need to play some of those chords!  And finger picking the melody is something for advanced players.

How about the brass, or woodwinds?

A trumpet (beginning, $600-$800) can have thrilling notes, evoking images of marches, as can the French Horn. Flutes can be fun and lilting.  Oboes can have a sad, ‘sweet/sad goodbye’ feel.  They can also have a hefty price, as they can cost in the range of $1500,  and then you add the lessons.

Drums and other percussion instruments can range from $600 to $2000, up.

Lessons for drums and percussion are more ‘specialized’, and can run $15-$60 for a half hour.


 All of these instruments are limited to only their own sound.

Then there is the SYNTHESIZER,  which will give you a variety of instrument sounds.  BUT — they have piano keyboards!  So, it’s back to PIANO LESSONS  (see above)!

Also, most synthesizers have only 61 keys on the keyboard, only the more expensive ones have the full range, and the better ones cost in the $2000 range, or more.  Then like piano, you have to do seemingly endless  practice of boring scales in the different key signatures, and the simultaneous separate parts, in the music.  Three years anyone?

Compare what you have seen in the KeyMusician Keyboard, with buying/learning a more traditional instrument–

  • With a piano- which is a technology invented about the year 1720.
  • A guitar, 1779, violin, 1523, or trumpet or accordion, early 1800s.
  • Each of these were made from the leading technology of their day, but each is limited to only their unique sound.

So many traditional music instruments are simply hard to learn, and expensive, too.

  • The KeyMusician Keyboard, was invented in 2012, and can use the sound of all of the instruments above, as well as many more.

  • The KeyMusician sound in fact is ‘sampled’ or derived from real sounds from fine musical instruments from around the world.

  • This means that with your computer (laptop or desktop) and a standard plug in typing keyboard, you can have instruments that sound ‘real’, upscale, and concert worthy.

  • Cellos, trumpets, pianos, violins, flutes, drums, in fact, you have hundreds of instruments to choose from.

  • With a laptop, it is also extremely portable.  A typing keyboard, laptop, and speaker, has about the same ‘bulk’ as an accordion, which means you can carry it all with one arm.

  • Add an orchestral sound to church hymns, have a grand piano sound at open-mic events, entertain your office cubicle (but don’t lose your job over this), or for yourself at home.

“I can play the trumpet part of the “Washington Post March” better on the KeyMusician Keyboard, than I could with a real trumpet when I was in band, and I was good (first chair of the section).  And I don’t have to maintain semi-daily practice to do it!”  — Aere

If you’re an opera fan, why settle for a mere piano arrangement of the aria you’re performing?  Why not have something more like the actual orchestral parts?  You can actually play this piece (and it’s not that difficult).  It’s included in the KeyMusician  Songbook.  Check out this rendition of a famous aria from the opera ‘Turandot’, by Puccini:

 Learning to play –

You can type one letter after the other, right?  There is not a lot of difference between doing what you are already used to doing, typing, and making music on the KeyMusician Keyboard.  You ‘play by typing letters’  at first,  largely to show yourself that you can make music with this, then, as you  quickly learn where the notes are, you simply ‘quit looking’ at the letters, and instead, look at either the notes on the sheet music, or match the notes that you hear, or remember.

There are basically three things that you need to play songs in music (this is for beginners, musicians know this already).

  1. You need to know the pitch,  or what note to play.
  2. Timing – how long each note (and the space between them), lasts in a piece.
  3. And – mostly for creating music – not just playing the music of others, what the notes ‘mean’ in relation to one another, or how do the notes change the mood?

 We can have you doing this maybe in the first few minutes, as you see-hear-do.

How did the KeyMusician Keyboard come to be, so that it can do all of these things? 

  • Our goal was to allow you to play beautiful music with a typing keyboard, rather than just mimicking playing a traditional music keyboard.

  • We designed it to work around the simultaneous keypress limitations of ordinary typing keyboards.

  • We use sounds derived from fine instruments from around the world, available for each operating system.

  • We put musical intelligence into the application, freeing you to be creative.

  • We considered the ergonomics of the typing keyboard, and the way fingers can move over it.

  • We looked for a way to reduce the high failure rate of those who start learning musical instruments.

  • Conceived by a composer who is also a computer programmer.

  • It’s much easier to play melody plus chords, than multiple simultaneous parts.

  • We considered the question: How do people learn?

  • We considered the question: How would modern science and top teachers impart to you the ability to play music?

  • We also teach how to improvise music with the music of others, which is an effective way of learning.

  • Ask yourself: Why spend years in boring traditional lessons, when, you could learn enough in days, so that you could play your favorite music?

The answers, and design came from the forge of years of experience,  and knowledge, that would cost you thousands, and hundreds of hours (years) of study and effort.

“Very seldom do I find a product that is so great that the testimonial seemingly writes itself.  Yours is one such product!!” — Jennifer

It could be worth thousands of dollars to give you the ability to play, either for yourself, or to perform for others,  and that is what most people do, already.  Just add up the instrument costs, the lesson costs, and the loads of time that you would spend learning either your first instrument, or an additional one.  What would you pay for that?

Many people would simply turn away, and never know the satisfaction of playing music,  and that is the real tragedy!

I think of my sister, who had piano lessons as a kid, and when you have piano lessons as a kid, you have piano recitals as a kid.

At her recital, she mounted the stage, and started playing.  While playing her piece, she made a mistake any 11 year old could make, hitting a sour note.  She stopped, recomposed herself, and started again. She later made a similar mistake, stopped, looked at the audience, and ran crying from the stage, never to play again.

So for years now, she has carried a burden, in memory, a memory never changed, that music is something to be wary of, something that humiliates you, something to stay away from.

Now imagine what would happen if she now had a good experience, a memory that would say, “Go further with this — it’s fun, and can lead to good things!
