Musiah Review: Keyboard Instruction And Music Theory In A Fun Format

23 April 2015

Matt _Musiah _Piano _StudentToday, I’m delighted to share with you this spontaneous review from Matt Columbine of Bulleen in Victoria, Australia (pictured opposite).


Matt, and particularly his wife and three children (aged 13, 11 and 9), are at various stages of learning keyboard with Musiah.


Here's what he had to say about his family's experience with Musiah's keyboard / piano lessons...




Background Information:

Prior Keyboard Experience: None

Feature most liked: The way it captures the imagination and generates enthusiasm for music and theory, within each of my children; my wife as well.

Overall satisfaction: 10

Interest in continuing to learn with Musiah: 10

Likelihood of recommending Musiah: 10


Further Comments / Testimonial:


Well done, Brendan Hogan and the Musiah Team.


Our hope was that through Musiah, our children would once more, become engaged and enthused for keyboards and piano, having become bored and disillusioned with traditional piano lessons.


Well, not only has Musiah re-engaged them with keyboards but has had the unexpected result of reigniting their enthusiasm for playing piano as well.


In my opinion, Musiah is designed to engage this and future generations' children in a format that appeals to them - that they relate to i.e. an interactive computer learning process, not dissimilar to what would have traditionally been called a video game.


That it has the same effect on adults wishing to learn keyboards and piano, is such a very welcome surprise.


My wife is a professional violinist and viola player. I am amazed at how Musiah has captured her imagination and enthused her to develop her keyboard and piano skills.


As a former professional musician myself, one of the things I appreciate the most about Musiah, is its very heavy focus on quality Music Theory, which is so essential and presents in such a way that children are generally only vaguely aware that they are learning theory - it's all just fun for them.


Keyboard instruction, skill development and music theory in a fun format - who would have thought that was possible? Clearly, Brendan Hogan; well done!


Matt Columbine




Sincere thanks Matt for taking the time to share the story of your family’s experience with Musiah. Please know that your kind feedback and support is deeply appreciated.


On a related note, I have recently had some inquiries from people asking whether learning keyboard with Musiah will help them with their piano playing, so it is interesting to read your comments in this regard.


For those of you who may be wondering the same thing, Musiah’s lessons are essentially piano lessons but we use midi keyboards for practical reasons such as the ability to connect to a computer. So the skills you will learn in your Musiah lessons are readily transferrable to an acoustic piano.


The other aspect of your review, Matt, that I really appreciated was your observation that Musiah’s lessons have the same effect on adults wishing to learn piano / keyboard and music theory.


This is so true — Musiah is equally suitable for adults and children which is why we have students from age 6 up to age 86. In fact, around 70% of our students are adults.


If you (dear reader) are seeking to learn piano / keyboard and music theory either for yourself and / or for your children, you have definitely come to the right place.


To experience our fun, innovative, effective piano / keyboard lessons for yourself, I warmly invite you to take our Free Online Piano Lessons 14 Day Trial.


It’s a great way to get started and will set you on the path to developing the life-long gift of music.


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

Til next time,

What people say about Musiah


With Musiah’s online piano lessons, you will be able to achieve in weeks or months what might normally takes years to do. 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.
