Musiah Piano Lessons Review: The Upside Of Rotten Tomatoes

8 May 2014

Piano _Student _Liz _Chapman _273Every 1-2 days I routinely review student progress,

and as part of this process, when I see a student has completed a level, I like to drop them a line just to congratulate them… to say ‘Well Done’, and to let them know that their good work has been noticed.


At age 52, Liz Chapman of Albany Creek, Brisbane, Australia (pictured opposite) is one of our many adult piano students (in fact more than half of all Musiah students are adults).


At the time of writing, Liz has been learning piano with Musiah for just over 4 months, and she is now learning her 50th song, and has just completed Level 3, so she is certainly progressing very well.  


Recently I wrote to Liz to congratulate her on completing Level 3 of the Musiah online piano lessons course.


This was her reply…




Thank you for touching base with me.  Yes, I seriously struggled with the last part of level 3. 


It ended up being very funny…..after having rotten tomatoes thrown at me numerous times, I decided that I had better get my act together and really practice before my performance.


That meant, settling on designated performance pieces, practicing each piece properly, practicing moving between each piece smoothly, practicing hand/finger placement on the keys relative to each piece (to know where I was moving to without stressing) and yes…practicing staying calm.


Musiah is an incredible learning program.  I can’t thank you enough for creating it.


I am learning things that I would never have grasped using a book and/or oddly enough with a music teacher. 


I have had one music lesson with a tutor, and in the 30 minutes I had with him, I realised that until I learn my theory, until I practice and gain some skill and technique, I was not going to benefit from face to face learning (at this stage anyway, from a financial perspective and from knowing my preferred learning style). 


The beauty about Musiah is that I don’t feel embarrassed when I constantly stumble over a tricky bit of music, e.g. your left hand technique in ‘Jingle Bells Part Two’. 


I can learn at my own pace, and using Musiah, I pick up (or he picks up) where I am going wrong with my notes and timing. 


I will endeavour to practice more consistently and not just when I have some down time from work! So obvious isn’t it?


Thanks again for the great program.  


Warm regards,






Sincere thanks Liz for your kind feedback, good humor and your wonderful support. It’s always a pleasure to share in the successes of our students.


In case you’re wondering (dear reader), at the end of each level on the Musiah piano lesson course, students have to complete a performance challenge by playing three randomly chosen pieces before a virtual audience.


When the challenge is successfully completed, the student receives a piece of a clavitrisk (a special key), is promoted to a higher rank and advances through to the next level.


On the other hand, if the performance challenge does not go so well, the student is pelted with rotten tomatoes, fruit (or similar) by the virtual audience.


It’s a great fun way to learn piano, but perhaps most importantly, Musiah’s online piano lessons are the most effective piano lessons you will find anywhere… mainly because, using the latest Artificial Intelligence technology, Musiah interacts with you and responds to your playing just like a live piano teacher, but unlike a live teacher, Musiah is available to support and guide you any time of day or night, 24/7.


To encourage you to start your piano lessons journey, I am very pleased to offer you a Free Online Piano Lessons 14 Day Trial (available for a limited time).


And if at any stage you need help, for example, connecting your keyboard to your computer, or getting set up, I am only an email away.


If you have any questions for me personally, please feel free to email me directly at [email protected].


Thanks for reading, and please feel free to comment.


Til next time,

What people say about Musiah


I have been using Musiah for a few weeks now and would highly recommend it to anyone. I have previously had two formal piano lessons and tried to teach myself a few things from you tube clips. I found this process slow and frustrating and quickly realised that I was missing the basics such as music theory. I am very impressed with how much music theory I have learned in such a short time. And even better- I'm actually remembering it. I can now play basic songs for my kids from a second hand music book I found. They love it! It's all been a really enjoyable process so far and I would urge anyone interested in using Musiah to give the free trial go. Kate Ward
