29 September 2015

Edit Avatar













In the latest Musiah Unity (Beta) update (V2.2.13), we've added a neat new Custom Avatar feature which allows you to upload your own photo or image as your avatar.


To do this...


1) Select your student profile

2) On the Main Menu click "Edit Profile"

3) On the Edit Profile Screen, mouse over your avatar image and the option to EDIT the image will appear.

4) Make your selections, click save and you're done.


More New Features On The Way...


User Manual

The next update in a few days time will include a small but welcome addition to the app in the form of a User Manual.


In the first instance, this simple but practical tool will help to increase awareness of all the great features that are available in Musiah Unity.


Tour / Smart Tips

Leveraging off the User Manual, work has already begun on creating a Tour (which will soon be accessible form the Main Menu) and Smart Tips to prompt / help you as you use the app (for example, as you complete Level 1, a hint will explain what you need to do next, e.g. attempt the performance challenge / acquire more stars, etc.)


Easy Mode

Also in the next few days, an update containing a new feature called 'Easy Mode' will be released. This new mode will offer slightly more lenient scoring. This is intended primarily to assist students who are struggling due to factors such as age-related loss of faculties, learning disabilities, etc. 


Auditions in easy mode will be awarded silver stars as opposed to gold stars. Performance challenges will be unlocked by either silver or gold stars. Gold stars will be shown on top of silver stars in the app.


Enhancements To Learning / Playing With Beat

Another group of changes students will see in the next few days is a number of enhancements to the A.I. logic in our flagship lesson module type (learning / playing with the click track). These enhancements will offer students assistance that is more context-sensitive and appropriately spaced.

For example, when playing a given segment of a piece with the click track, if you make mistakes on multiple attempts, the app will take you through the note identification / verification process less often than it might currently because it will track when it last took you through this process, and will wait an appropriate number of attempts before taking you through it again.


Additionally, a context-sensitive form of "You Played Vs Correct" help will be added this module type. This assistance will be skippable (if you choose to) and will also track how often and when it was last offered so it will be offered at appropriate intervals and at times when it will be most beneficial.


Of course all these and countless other behind-the-scenes changes are all part of our ongoing commitment to bringing you the best possible and most effective piano lessons you will find anywhere.

What people say about Musiah


Musiah is the best interactive software for learning piano I have come across. You have an actual teacher who guides you through the lessons step by step. If you make a mistake he not only points out what and how, but fixes the problems you're having by working through exercises tailored to the issues you are specifically having. A very intelligent program, I love it. I also like the fact that you can't 'cheat' and just jump ahead, it makes sure you learn each item before introducing the next concept. I cannot recommend this highly enough, it blows piano marvel and playground sessions out of the water, it really is like having a piano teacher that interacts with you.
