The Fun Way to Learn!
The award-winning eMedia My Piano educational software is what sets this keyboard kit apart from all others. In eMedia My Piano an animated character named Pam the Piano leads kids through over 100 lessons, authored and demonstrated by Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., who has taught at the renowned Juilliard School of Music. eMedia My Piano covers basics such as proper hand and finger position, learning notes, counting rhythm, playing harmonies, and reading music. All this and more is taught with popular songs and melodies. The interactive games interspersed throughout the method make learning fun and easy.
eMedia My Piano teaches with the help of videos and live recorded songs. The Animated Keyboard shows kids where to put their fingers as the music plays. The speed of the music can be adjusted with MIDI tracks, so kids can learn at their own pace. When My Piano is used with the MIDI keyboard included in this pack, students get feedback on notes and rhythms they played incorrectly and are shown what they should have played instead. Separate audio tracks (left/right hand, piano only/voice only) and colorful MIDI accompaniments provide engaging practice options. Additional valuable tools such as a metronome and digital recorder are also included.
The eMedia My Piano Starter Pack is the perfect way to introduce children of all ages to playing piano!
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 the included MIDI keyboard, kids get interactive 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!
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.
