Product Description

The eMedia Piano for Dummies CD-ROM offers everything you need to learn how to play. Learn from over 150 step-by-step lessons with full-motion video demonstrations (approximately one-half of the eMedia Piano and Keyboard Method curriculum). Piano teacher Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., has taught at the renowned Juilliard School of Music. Learn to read music notation with the help of the Animated Keyboard. Songs include recorded audio, variable-speed MIDI keyboard tracks and colorful MIDI accompaniments. When used with an electronic MIDI keyboard, you can get specific feedback on playing mistakes. Also includes the digital metronome and recorder.

The Fast and Easy Way to Learn Piano

eMedia Piano For Dummies features music from classics to popular modern hits to make learning fun. Enhanced multi-track audio and colorful MIDI accompaniments enhance the learning experience. Learn with over 50 classical, pop and folk songs such as George Cohen's "Give My Regards To Broadway," Ludwig van Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and Billy Joel's "Piano Man."

157 Step-by-Step Lessons

Arranged in six chapters, the lessons cover the basics such as hand position, rhythm and playing on black keys, then move on to more advanced concepts such as music notation, sight reading, intervals, melodies and harmonies. On-screen teacher Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., provides clear and friendly instruction.

Large, Easy-to-Use Interface

Screens are easy to read and use. 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.

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.

High Quality Videos

Professional piano instructor Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., who has taught at the renowned Juilliard School of Music, guides you with demonstrations of techniques - now larger, with enhanced quality and viewable at full-screen size.

New! Progress Tracking

Personalized reports show your rate of progress, including scores for specific songs (when used with a MIDI keyboard).

Enhanced Multi-track Audio

High-quality, multi-track recorded audio is included for every song and exercise. Audio playback options include piano only, voice only, and full audio including both piano and voice.

Variable-speed MIDI

MIDI playback options let you select left or right hand only, or a tick metronome track to play along with. Colorful variable-speed MIDI accompaniments are also available and can be fun to play along with.

Slow down the audio to any tempo using the MIDI slider while the Animated Keyboard shows song fingering as the music plays. You can play along and learn at the pace best suited to your skill level.

Interactive 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 the next time. Clicking on an individual feedback balloon brings up a keyboard showing you exactly what mistake was made and what should have been played. Also, an overall percentage score summarizes how well you did on the song.

Keyboard Tips

With the click of a button, you can get suggestions as to which "voice" to use on your MIDI keyboard to get the best sound for the song.

Reviews and Ear Training

Interactive review and ear training screens help reinforce concepts and develop your ear.

Digital Metronome

Allows you to set your own tempo and work on your speed, rhythm and timing. Provides both visual cue and/or audio tick. Full range of tempi, from largo to presto.
Recorder

Digital Recorder

Record and play yourself back. This feature allows you to compare your recordings with the instructor's version, fine tune your skills and share your recordings with friends and family.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
