Review: Musiah Piano Lessons Enrich Life Says Ohio Woman

24 July 2014

Piano -Lessons -Student -Ashley -DonohoeAs usual (which is fantastic), the kind reviews and expressions of support for Musiah’s online piano lessons just keep on coming.


In particular, I was very impressed with and excited to receive this comprehensive review from adult piano student, Ashley Donohoe, age 26, from Milford, Ohio, USA.


At the time of writing, Ashley, who has not had any previous formal piano tuition, has been learning with Musiah for about two months.


She is currently well on her way to completing Level 6 (of 13), having learned 82 songs in a very short period of time.


This is Ashley’s story of her experience in Musiah’s piano lessons to date…




Several years ago, I had tried to learn piano on my own using books, and I didn’t have much success beyond playing the melody of simple songs with the right hand. I also did not have much progress learning to read music.


Before starting Musiah, I was concerned that my weak left hand playing and poor note reading skills would keep me from progressing.


After beginning Musiah, I realized that my concerns were not going to be a problem.


The program did an excellent job teaching note reading from the beginning, and the games made it a fun and painless process.


Musiah also got me started playing with my left hand quickly. By the time I made it through the first level, I was very comfortable playing with both hands and for the first time, I was able to read the notes rather quickly, even on beginning piano music from other sources.


I was amazed at how fast I was able to progress in such a short time using the software.


The feature I most liked was the corrections the software gave me when I made mistakes during a lesson. I liked knowing exactly where my timing was off or which notes I had been playing incorrectly. Being able to try a section again and again until I mastered it was very helpful.


One of the benefits was that the program made learning piano fun. I liked auditioning the pieces to get more stars because it made learning seem like a game.


Another benefit is that the lessons were structured very well and reinforced what was already learned, as well as introduced new music theory concepts.


Finally, the online lessons were particularly appealing because they were inexpensive and fit in my busy schedule. I liked being able to practice at my own pace and not have to worry about commuting to lessons.


I highly recommend Musiah to anybody who wants to learn piano, especially those who have not had much progress learning using other methods.


The program’s well structured, is inexpensive, and has an interesting storyline that grabs your attention and motivates you to master each lesson.


Musiah has definitely enriched my life and has given me confidence with my piano playing.  


It’s only been less than two months, but I have been able to learn enough skills to play many pieces of sheet music that I have purchased, including songs I had great trouble with in my previous attempt at learning piano. I am looking forward to continuing through to the end.

What people say about Musiah


Learning to play the piano with the help of the Musiah program has been an eye opening experience not just for my daughter but for me as well. Musiah has helped her to develop a deeper awareness and appreciation of music and we have both enjoyed her moments of success when she achieves the required progression on each level. The characters are likeable and the graphics are interactive and stylised in such a way that makes it very appealing for today's computer savvy children. My daughter is only 7 and has come a long way in such a short time (when compared with traditional lessons given by a music teacher) and we love how she can sit down to her lesson at any time from the comfort of home which makes it incredibly convenient for all of us. I would recommend Musiah to any parent who wishes to introduce their child to learning the piano.
