Are you having trouble motivating your kids to practice the piano?

We know what is going through your child’s mind.

The inventor of PianoMaestro was forced to learn to play the piano at a young age and was so traumatized by the experience that he did not touch a piano for 15 years after escaping from his parents’ sphere of influence.

There are three stages to learning to play the piano.  Your child will probably lose interest somewhere in Stage 2 – learning the notes of a new piece.

PM-hopes1During Stage 2, your child will spend hours at the piano making noise, not music.    Your child will be frustrated because the amount of time invested at the piano will seem to yield meager rewards.     Does your child listen to “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” for enjoyment?   Probably not.   However, there is a good chance that your child will learn to play “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”  on the piano.

With the PianoMaestro, your child will be able to learn new songs in less time and with less effort.  Because the PianoMaestro plays standard MIDI files, your child will be able to learn to play the songs that they enjoy in their normal lives.   This creates a positive feedback learning cycle.

We expect the traditionalists to be weary of electronic aides like the PianoMaestro.    There is no question that the classical method has created many world-class pianists.   However, it has also failed millions.   We hope that the PianoMaestro will motivate and encourage everyone else — those discouraged by the classical method –  to keep playing the piano.
