Online Piano Lessons — What Lies On The Road Ahead For Musiah Unity?

28 July 2015

Road Ahead Web2This month saw a major milestone achieved with the long awaited and much anticipated introduction of the Musiah Story into Musiah Unity (Beta).

 

Students can now choose whether to do their lessons in ‘story mode’ or ‘pure mode’ (pure mode is pure tuition without the story / animation content).

 

So what lies on the road ahead for Musiah Unity?

 

Although Musiah Unity is already fully functioning, it is still classified as “beta” because there are still a number of features we would like to add to the app before we consider it “complete”.

 

Summary Of Main Additional Features To Be Introduced Soon

 

  • View – the ability to change to alternate layouts, e.g. a scrolling single stave that may suit students with small screens
  • Print Sheet Music (under consideration)
  • Games area – based on the revision room note reading / note playing modules so students can choose to focus on improving their note reading at any time
  • On-screen keyboard that can be played by students with a touch screen
  • Virtual keyboard that allows you to play pieces via your computer keyboard
  • Enhancements to tracking practice time
  • Easy mode – slightly more lenient scoring primarily for elderly students
  • Ability to upload your photo as your avatar
  • Minor enhancements to the A.I. logic
  • Tour / User manual accessible from the Main Menu

 

Once the above features and a host of other minor enhancements have been implemented, we will draw a line in the sand and

 

  • declare Musiah Unity to be officially complete
  • phase out the older versions of Musiah
  • issue a beta release of Musiah for iPad

 

How Long Will This Take?

 

As I often say to my students, it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.

 

As a rough guide, based on current circumstances, I estimate about two months. That said, it’s not something I want to rush as I want to enjoy the journey and do it well.

 

While development work is ongoing, we will aim to release an update to the app on a weekly basis that will include at the very least some minor enhancements / tidy-ups / bug fixes, and where possible, one or more of the above features.

 

So customers and students will see the app continue to evolve and grow in the weeks ahead as we gradually near official completion of Musiah Unity.

 

Piano lessons with Musiah are not just a game changer — they are a life-changer, as so many of our students attest daily in reviews, testimonials and emails.

What people say about Musiah

 

I've loved learning to play piano with Musiah. The lessons are thorough and easy-to-follow, and I've been able to learn to play with both hands very quickly. I've tried other online piano lessons, and Musiah is hands-down the best experience I've had so far. I highly recommend.
