Musiah Review By Mathematician / Computer Scientist / Professor In Software Architecture

20 November 2014

Computer _Scientist _reviews _Musiah _piano _lessonsThis week, while busily preparing for the initial beta release of Musiah Unity (the next generation of Musiah) on Fri 28 Nov 2014, we have also been very grateful for and delighted by the volume of supportive emails and kind feedback that continues to pour in from people of all nations and from all walks of life.


In particular, I was honored and humbled to receive this feedback in an email from Jeroen Bruijning of Den Haag, Netherlands.


At the time of writing, Jeroen has been learning piano with Musiah for approximately two weeks, in which time he has completed 80 pieces / lessons, which is excellent progress.


This is what he had to say about his experience with Musiah piano lessons to date…




I am 66 and had some piano lessons in my youth. These were not very successful - actually, I found them uninspiring and I learned little. I learned to play the notes to a certain degree, however I never had the feeling that I was making music. 


I have always loved music, however, and now I am finding myself with a desire to properly learn to play the piano.


As an aside: Professionally I am a retired mathematician and computer scientist as well as an emeritus professor in software architecture and design, so I am naturally interested in didactic aspects as well as in software techniques. Thus Musiah does interest me from several points of view.


The lessons I find excellent, and I am learning more, and faster, than I would have thought possible.


The pace is good, and now that I am progressing the material gets more challenging. Good!


Most importantly, I am enjoying the lessons. I am impressed with the overall quality of the program.


The AI is overall very good and generally understanding of my needs and possibilities.


I have read your posting on the AI in Musiah and found it very interesting.


I also think it is a good thing that the program lets me progress to the next item only when I have completed the current one, and will not allow me to progress faster than I really can.


Overall, the didactic quality of the lessons I find excellent. No comparison to some other courses that I have tried, which I found rather dull, even if covering the right ground.


I respect and admire your work and I wish Musiah all the best!


Jeroen Bruijning, Ph.D


Post Script Added 24 March 2015 after completing the course:

I have now completed the course and I have to say that my impressions have not changed. At the end of the course, the pieces got more and more challenging but every step prepared me for the next one, so I never found that any of them was above my abilities.


The “game” format is very stimulating, and the story I find entertaining and very well done.

For me personally, the primary goal was to develop technical skill: rhythm, fingering, tempo, etc., and to use this as a starting point for further development. This has been amply realized.


And very importantly: Musiah has taught me how to approach new music with confidence.


I am now learning new pieces and I find that I am well prepared to do so.


So, Musiah has definitely opened up new possibilities for me.


Jeroen Bruijning, Ph.D

What people say about Musiah


Hi everyone I already play piano. but I like the idea to prove the software and mostly to encourage my 8 year old boy to get interested in piano. After few weeks we both learn and have fun together. and suprisely we are more connected as father and son. He learn to play ´piano with both hand and finally he can easly identify any note on the keyboard, and what i like the most is the he stop play ps3 to stay and practice more time with musiah. Really great stuff!!
