This week, the positive emails singing Musiah's praises have continued coming. In particular, I was delighted and grateful to receive the below review from Leigh Blackburn (pictured right). Leigh is among our more advanced students and he is successfully running Musiah on a mac machine using bootcamp. This is what he had to say about learning piano with Musiah:


Playing piano was something that I always wanted to do, however I never really had the time or money to invest into learning properly. I love music and creating music, and piano is pretty much the base for most instruments when regarding scales, chords and melodies. I felt that there was soo much to learn and that starting from scratch would be too difficult or take too long.


Being a 27 year old who is working full time, paying off a mortgage, I also thought there wouldn't be enough time for me to learn all the theory behind music and reading music. So I was just content with going on Youtube and looking up tutorials of how to play this song or that song, which ever song I liked.

But I was never learning piano.
Then my sister told me about Musiah!

She had started learning piano through Musiah, and was absolutly loving it! I had a look at it online and thought that I would give it a go for a month to see if I liked it or not.


I didnt like it, I loved it!


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.


Also for $25 a month for up to 6 people in your house can learn — it's incredible value. It gives people like myself, who would never have been able to afford piano lessons from an instructor, a chance to learn this excellent instrument!
I would recommend Musiah to anyone, of any age, who is keen to learn properly how to play piano!

Brendan Hogan has been wonderful, he has answered all my questions the day I asked him!
So thank you Brendan for an incredible product!

What people say about Musiah


I was given a keyboard and was signed up to musiah by my husband as a Christmas gift and retirement gift. I had never played any more than plonking a note here and there. I was honestly a bit overwhelmed at the idea of learning as my sense of timing is poor. How wrong was I I have loved the programme It is fun , challenging and very fulfilling. The teaching method is terrific as is the feed back and revision. The classroom experience is really fun too. I am an addict and play most days. I have now progressed to 2nd level and have signed up for a years subscription. Ps. My timing is improving and I love learning something creative and fun. Many thanks
