eMedia My Piano
For ages 6 and up
Research has proven that children who play an instrument do better in school, make friends more easily, are more creative, learn self-discipline and gain self-confidence. In eMedia My Piano, an animated character named Pam the Piano leads kids through over 100 lessons by Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., who has taught at the renowned Juilliard School of Music.
eMedia My Piano covers the basics, such as learning your notes, counting rhythm, and moves on to playing chords, reading music, playing songs, and much more. eMedia’s exclusive animated keyboard shows kids where to put their fingers as the live recorded audio plays. With MIDI tracks, the speed of the music can be adjusted so kids can learn at their own pace. When My Piano is used with a MIDI keyboard, kids get instant feedback on notes and rhythms they played wrong and find out what they should have played instead. Additional features such as a metronome and digital recorder are also included. My Piano is the perfect way to introduce children to playing piano.
Now it’s easy for kids ages 5 and up to learn how to play piano. An animated character named Pam the Piano guides kids through over 100 lessons by former Juilliard School of Music instructor Irma Irene Justicia, M.A. Games make learning fun, and kids will learn songs that they can share with their friends.
The animated keyboard shows color-coded fingerings as the music plays so kids can easily follow along. Double-clicking on any chord or note will also show them where to put their fingers.
When used with a MIDI keyboard, kids get instant feedback on notes and rhythms they played wrong and find out what they should have played instead. There's also an overall score to show them how well they did on the song. The lessons are easy to follow with our large-format videos, featuring split-screens and close-ups that guide kids through songs and playing techniques.
Games help children learn chords and songs by reviewing what they learned in the lessons. By interacting with the playful characters and scenes, kids will have fun while learning music. Audio playback for selected lessons include piano only, voice only, and full audio including both piano and voice. Play along with tracks that you can speed up or slow down including colorful MIDI accompaniments, metronome tick, left-hand part, right-hand part or the two-handed performance.
With the Metronome, kids can set their own tempo and get audio and/or visual cues for staying on beat so they can play in time with the music. The digital recorder allows kids to play into the computer’s built-in microphone (or an external one), record their performance, and save it to the computer. This handy tool lets them listen to what they played and share it with their family and friends.
