Reflection On Piano Lessons With Musiah: First Two Weeks — Absolutely Dumbfounded

23 January 2015

Ali _Hussain _Musiah _Piano _LessonsAs I got up on Christmas morning, there in my email inbox was a delightful surprise — perhaps the best Christmas present ever!


It was the below email from adult student, Ali Hussain of Ann Arbor, Michigan in the United States, in which he reflects on his first two weeks of piano lessons with Musiah.




Hi Brendan, Thank you so very much for your last reply to my questions.


I wanted to share with you my reflection on experiencing Musiah for the first two weeks.


It’s really hard for me to believe that in only two weeks, my 14 day trial period, Musiah was able to carry me from not knowing how to read sheet music properly to playing with both hands and even playing chords and triads that contain flats and sharps with my left hand.


One of the reasons I was never able to learn music theory or piano properly in the past is because I'm very impatient; this is something I'm not ashamed of admitting.


I am absolutely dumbfounded by how revolutionary this product is.


Over the past two weeks, I used to get very frustrated and start huffing and puffing when I can't get a piece correctly. However, when I sit down and reflect over the fact that it’s only been two weeks since I started using Musiah and I'm already at level 6; I am absolutely dumbfounded by how revolutionary this product is.


Musiah is not only my piano teacher; but the process itself has actually transformed me personally.


In this regard, Musiah is not only my piano teacher; but the process itself has actually transformed me personally. It has taught me to be patient and have respect for both the instrument and musical language that is sheet music. I can only happily imagine what my growth will be in a month, 6 months or even a year.


But what has really been my biggest realization so far is that the most important aspect of experiencing Musiah is the journey itself. I used to be able to finish 5 lessons in one day; now it takes me 2 days for one lesson to even just get 4 stars on a piece.


Without patience, this can be really painful. However, with appreciation and patience, this is exactly how musical growth and maturation should feel like.


You have successfully transformed Musiah from being a virtual piano teacher to a living human teacher and mentor.


As I progress beyond my trial period, I'm beyond grateful to have stumbled upon Musiah and you Brendan who, because of your impeccable patience and willingness to engage your students by email continuously without hesitation, you have successfully transformed Musiah from being a virtual piano teacher, to actually a living human teacher and mentor.


Thank you very much…


Here is to great piano playing now and in the future!


Cheers, Ali

Wow Ali, thank you very much! I must tell you, you absolutely made my Christmas morning!


Your observations on your own personal growth in these two weeks show that you have an exceptionally deep awareness / appreciation of the positive transformation that takes place through a piano lessons journey, particularly when the course and teacher are effective.


And that someone as highly educated an intelligent as you has the humility, respect and wisdom to wholeheartedly embrace and trust in every aspect of this journey you have embarked upon is in turn deeply humbling and rewarding for me as the teacher behind the teacher, so to speak.


To see the tremendous leaps and bounds in your progress fills me with every bit as much pride as if I were sitting next to you teaching you personally.


If you keep up your exceptional work in the weeks and months ahead, I too can only imagine what your growth will be in a month, 6 months or even a year. Bravo, my friend!


If you (dear reader) would like to embark on your own life-changing journey of personal transformation through these extraordinary piano lessons, I warmly invite you to take that step now by taking our Free Online Piano Lessons 14 Day Trial.

What people say about Musiah


Musiah has been a great tool in teaching my [four] children the piano keyboard without the aid of a human Music Teacher. I like the idea of keeping my children focused in learning the piano by the use of vivid colour and animations during their learning process. Musiah allows my children to learn at their own pace whenever they choose to go on, day or night. I am recommending Musiah to all my friends and relatives, that's for sure!
