What You Will Learn In Musiah’s Online Piano Lessons
1. Musiah’s Online Piano Lessons Are Highly Effective
The Musiah piano method (i.e. the teaching method behind Musiah’s piano lessons) has been developed over 17 years and has been taught to more than 80,000 students, during which time, the method was continually refined and has evolved into its current form which is essentially a highly efficient take on the traditional piano method.
Like the traditional piano method, the Musiah piano method will teach you how to read sheet music properly (reading the notes for both hands) — but with the Musiah method, you’ll
- learn to read sheet music easier and quicker and
- you’ll learn how to read sheet music efficiently.
And in terms of playing technique and the development of eye-mind-hand coordination, as you learn piano with Musiah, you’ll discover how the Musiah approach to reading sheet music also forms the best foundation to help you
- develop equal playing proficiency in each hand
- learn to play with two hands together instantly
- learn to play pieces quicker

2. Learn How To Read Sheet Music As Well As Fun Practical Lessons
One of the great things about Musiah’s online piano lessons is that music theory / learning to read sheet music and practical lessons are integrated into one seamless holistic lesson, so there are no lengthy boring explanations.
Instead, during practical lessons, you are ‘drip-fed’ music theory, general knowledge and note-reading techniques almost imperceptibly, so you are learning these things while continually being engaged and actively participating in the lesson.
And from time to time, when Musiah does focus purely on theory / note-reading, this is done through interactive games which are not only fun, they are also a highly efficient way to learn.
These games were designed with adults in mind to re-enforce skills and knowledge in a measureable, enjoyable way.
In terms of describing the benefits of (and the science behind) the cartoon interface, adult student Michael Koureskas from Watsonia Melbourne had this to say in a recent Musiah review:
"Not only is Musiah an amazing, cost effective, resource efficient, high quality product, but the user interface of the program exceeds expectations.
Upon opening the program it establishes a friendly environment in which piano students can study, practice and even feel welcomed in! The interface is easy and fun to navigate.
I believe that the entertaining story lines and characters also play a very significant role in engaging adults in learning piano.
Firstly on the surface level, it is highly engaging as students of all ages like ‘achievement and recognition’ (we like seeing things get done, ticking things off, earning reward points etc.) this is achieved through the story line and process of collecting stars to unlock pieces of the clavitrisk.
Secondly on a deeper level, the use of 'child friendly' animations, establishes an underlying sensation of ‘joy’ which makes the student feel at ease, a sense of (childhood) fun and playfulness.
This is astonishing, because it places the students in the most receptive state of learning. It allows students to not feel threatened or intimidated by a scholarly musical maestro sitting across the table from them (as would have traditionally been the case).
So Musiah overcomes a huge barrier that holds a lot of people back from learning piano, especially in their later stages of life.
I would recommend Musiah without hesitation to anyone (and I have) who is even remotely considering learning the piano, because once you start with Musiah you will never look back.

3. Learn To Play Pieces In A Variety Of Styles
In Musiah’s online piano lessons you will learn pieces in a wide variety of styles including classical, folk, blues, rock and contemporary.
Here are a couple of videos to demonstrate the variety of styles you will learn:

4. Musiah Speaks To You And Gives You Essential Feedback
Unlike anything else, using the latest A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) technology, Musiah speaks to you just like a live teacher sitting next to you, and guides you every step of the way.
Like a live teacher, he not only points out mistakes, such as
- notes that were played incorrectly
- notes that were left out
- extra notes played that are not on the sheet music at all
- timing issues
- duration issues (where notes have not been held for the correct length)
Musiah also has the ability to prioritize (the ability to prioritize is widely considered to be one of the most advanced areas in the field of A.I.).
So if there are multiple issues, Musiah can prioritize which issues to address and in what order, which means that the feedback you receive is very natural and life-like.
And if, from time to time, you don’t want to hear the feedback (e.g. if you know what you did wrong), Musiah also comes with a handy “Skip” button (unlike a traditional teacher).

Why Musiah Is The Best Piano Lessons Solution For Adults
As adults, we are often
- Time poor
- Commitment-shy (unsure if we can sustain a scheduled weekly lesson due to family / work commitments)
- Shy or embarrassed about playing in front of a judgemental piano teacher
- Unsure about the logistics of getting to piano lessons, e.g. is a 30 minute drive to and from a 30 minute lesson going to be worth it?
- Financially challenged (at around $30-40 per half hour, the cost of traditional piano lessons is unaffordable for many)
- Fearful that we may be too old to start taking piano lessons
- Regret not having learned as a child and now think it may be too late
- Feel guilty (especially parents) if we take some time to do something good for ourselves
Yet still the dream of being able to sit down at the piano / keyboard and play a beautiful piece of music remains.
How Musiah’s Online Piano Lessons Are Helping Adults Overcome These Challenges And Doubts
Firstly, let me assure you that, as an adult, if you are feeling some or all of the things described above, this is perfectly normal. You are a wonderful and complex human being with enormous untapped potential (even if you have some doubts that have held you back until now).
5. So Convenient — Learn At Home When It Suits You
If you’re time poor (like many adults), you’ll find online piano lessons with Musiah are the ultimate in convenience.
Once installed (as a software application on your computer), Musiah is like having your own personal piano teacher on call 24/7 ready to teach you whenever it suits you, any time of day or night.
If you’re commitment-shy (unable to commit to a piano lesson at the same day and time each week), Musiah offers the perfect solution... If you want 3 hours of piano lessons today and then just 10 minutes three days from now — no problem.
While a routine is preferable (if / when you can manage it), if your availability changes a lot, Musiah will simply wait until you can manage to spend some time with him, learning to play your next piece.
6. Musiah Is Infinitely Patient And Always Encouraging
Are you shy or embarrassed about making mistakes in front of a traditional piano teacher who may judge you for ‘not having practiced enough since last week’s lesson’? You’ll find Musiah is infinitely patient, always encouraging and completely non-judgmental.
As a virtual piano teacher, he respects you and your individual circumstances, and his sole purpose is to support you and help you achieve your goal of learning to play piano.
7. No Driving Time / Travel Costs Getting To And From Lessons
Do you find the idea of sitting in traffic on the way to and from a weekly 30 minute piano lesson less than thrilling? When you take piano lessons online with Musiah, there is ZERO driving time, no petrol or other travel costs, no time wasted.
Instead of sitting in traffic, if you’d rather spend that time learning piano, then Musiah is a great option for you.
8. Musiah’s Piano Lessons Are Very Affordable
Do you find the cost of traditional piano lessons (at around $30-40 per half hour) unaffordable?
Then you’re about to be very pleasantly surprised by the outstanding value Musiah’s online piano lessons can offer.
For the one low monthly subscription (even less if you prepay for 3, 6 or 12 months) you can have as many hours of piano lessons as you want each month — for a fraction of the cost of a single traditional piano lesson.
Not only that… up to 6 family members can all have piano lessons with Musiah for the same subscription!
9. Piano Lessons Suitable For Adults (Age is no barrier)
Do you have doubts about taking piano lessons because of your age? To all adults, I say — age is no barrier.
You are never too old to learn.
More than half of all Musiah students are adults, like Judy Cocu age 56 from Bairnsdale, Melbourne who in a recent Musiah review wrote:
"As a mature aged student I am fulfilling a lifetime dream to learn to read music and play. I am immensely satisfied with the Musiah system and thoroughly enjoy the lessons.
The flexibility to work at my own pace and in my own time (my favorite feature) works well with other commitments. The animation is fun and the ability to review and practice at any time keeps me highly motivated. Additionally, the support is prompt and informative should issues arise.
Thanks, Brendan - just love it!!!!!"

Or Hayley Waterhouse, age 32 from South Penrith, Sydney who had this to say in another Musiah review:
"I must tell you, Musiah exceeded my expectations and is too perfect for words… in one day of using Musiah not only did I learn more but everything I had tried to understand fell into place… The joy (and relief) of successfully auditioning a piece is incredible… I am so appreciative of the work you have put into developing this software. I know it must’ve been such a lot of work but I know it will change many lives as it has mine already."

Or Leigh Blackburn, age 28 from Spring Farm, Sydney who says this:
"From the very start Musiah makes learning the piano fun and interesting, I can now quite easily read notes off sheet music, am learning to co-ordinate my fingers for different chords and have learnt a number of different scales.
Even though in Musiah you are an 'Earthling' trying to save the universe from a alien attack, which may come off a bit 'Kiddy', it's a great way to learn and you can work at your own pace, whenever you're available.
I would recommend Musiah to anyone, of any age, who is keen to learn properly how to play piano!"

Are You A Parent Who Feels Guilt For Taking Some Time To Do Something Good For YOU?
For those of us adults who are parents, there is often guilt. Guilt because you feel that you are being somehow selfish by taking some time for yourself — time to do something not for the kids, but for you.
If you’re a parent feeling guilt at the thought of taking some time for yourself to learn to play piano, it may help to remember an important and wise point that, oddly enough, is often made on airplanes during safety demonstrations when they say, “During an emergency, an oxygen mask will drop down in front of you… You must put on your own mask before attempting to help your child / children”.
In other words, you must help yourself before you can help others.
As parents, this is often hard to do. But in order to inspire your child to live an effective, fulfilled life, you must show them by example that you, as an adult, place a high value on learning and on your own personal growth. And taking online piano lessons with Musiah is a perfect way to do just that.

My Qualifications As A Piano Lessons Expert
For more than 32 years, I’ve taught piano lessons, organ lessons, and keyboard lessons privately and in schools and have spent thousands of hours observing and coaching hundreds of teachers in the specialized art of delivering group piano lessons. I have the AMEB qualification of Associate in Music Australia (A.Mus.A) and Licentiate in Music Australia (L.Mus.A).
My own piano teaching career started at the age of 11, giving me the opportunity to develop and refine my own piano lessons method over many years.
I began playing the piano at age 7 and was the last student to study piano with internationally renowned piano teacher Dr JJ O’Reilly before continuing at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with Chopin piano specialist, Professor Anthony Glavin.
I’ve composed music from the age of 12. I was 17 when my first orchestral work was performed by Ireland’s National Orchestra, making me the youngest Irish composer ever to have an orchestral work performed at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.
I wrote my first piano concerto at 18 while teaching music to Year 10 students.
Since relocating from Ireland to Australia in 1988, I’ve had a career working as a composer for television and songs for established artists, including “Walk Away”, which Wendy Matthews performed on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.
Since early 2008, I have channeled my passion for teaching piano into developing Musiah’s popular online piano lessons. Musiah is the world’s first truly artificially intelligent virtual piano teacher.

“[With Musiah’s online piano lessons], you will be able to achieve in weeks or months what might normally takes years to do.”
“I think Musiah is fantastic... It is going to revolutionize the way people learn music. From what I have seen, Musiah is absolutely the best value, the most convenient and the most fun way to learn piano.”
“There are going to be a lot of adults who are enjoying the process of learning music through Musiah as well as the kids. I think it is going to have a profound effect on the way music is studied.”
“[Musiah’s online piano lessons] are going to open a whole of doors for people who are interested in music but who might not necessarily have the patience to sit down and practice half an hour every day… Practicing music used to be a bit of a chore but with this program… students are going to be coming back to the keyboard and coming back to the computer because they want to get to the next level.”
“For adults… I think sometimes we get shy about performing in front of people… For those people… you can practice in the privacy of your own home and get to a certain level before you surprise everybody with your skills.”

Carlos A (adult student) - Zamora, Spain
"This is the first time I feel that I will really be able to learn piano with the kind of help I need"
Just wanted to say thank you so much for creating Musiah. We saw the ad on X Factor and decided to give it a try. As an adult learner, I had lessons for about a year or two when I was in around grade 1-2 at school. The rest I taught myself, so could never really pinpoint where I was going wrong, or how I could improve beyond a certain level. This is the first time I feel that I will really be able to learn piano with the kind of help I need. One of my daughter's (Lainey) who is just beginning with piano lessons with a teacher absolutely loves Musiah too. It is really easy to use, fun and makes us both want to play! We LOVE it!! Her teacher can't believe how good she is going after only 2 piano lessons with him.

"The real genius is the man who dreamt of Musiah and then had the courage and determination to make it happen"
The real genius is the man who dreamt of Musiah and then had the courage and determination to make it happen. It's an incredibly difficult thing to come up with something new and original but you have achieved it. I imagine it was as hard to produce, as maybe writing a good book coupled with a computer program coupled with a film. It is a wonderful piece of work. Anyway thanks for it, and may it bring you every possible reward.
