  • Musiah software is not suitable for use on Microsoft Surface running Windows RT.
  • Bluetooth headphones are not recommended for use with Musiah as they lead to latency.

What people say about Musiah


I have been using Musiah for a few weeks now and would highly recommend it to anyone. I have previously had two formal piano lessons and tried to teach myself a few things from you tube clips. I found this process slow and frustrating and quickly realised that I was missing the basics such as music theory. I am very impressed with how much music theory I have learned in such a short time. And even better- I'm actually remembering it. I can now play basic songs for my kids from a second hand music book I found. They love it! It's all been a really enjoyable process so far and I would urge anyone interested in using Musiah to give the free trial go. Kate Ward
