"The best value, the most convenient and the most fun way to learn piano"

John Foreman reviews Musiah piano lessons

With Musiah 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. Musiah piano lessons are going to open a whole of doors for young people who are interested in music but who might not necessarily have the patience to sit down and practice half an hour every day… In the past, practicing music was a bit of a chore but with this program… kids are going to be coming back to the keyboard and coming back to the computer because they want to get to the next level.  For adults, … I think sometimes we get shy about performing in front of people… For those people… you can practise in the privacy of your own home and get to a certain level before you surprise everybody with your skills. I think Musiah is fantastic... It is going to revolutionize the way people learn music.

"I've loved learning to play piano with Musiah — hands-down the best experience I've had so far."

amymorbyI'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.

"Musiah is too perfect for words... it will change many lives"

hayleywaterhouse 170x171I must tell you, Musiah exceeded my expectations and is too perfect for words… in one day of using Musiah not only did I learn more but everything I had tried to understand fell into place… The joy (and relief) of successfully auditioning a piece is incredible… I am so appreciative of the work you have put into developing this software. I know it must’ve been such a lot of work but I know it will change many lives as it has mine already.

"I think this is a wonderful program"

leighblackburn 171x207I think this is a wonderful program! I've been wanting to learn keyboard for ages now but could never afford tutoring in the budget, and other online training or books just haven't had the feedback like musiah so you don't know if you're learning correctly. I really enjoy making beats and music on programs like reason but never had the skills for great keyboard pieces. I believe with musiah I will be well on the way to helping me improve! Thank you so much for this program!

"He is really enjoying the lessons and it is hard now to get him to stop playing"

sandrakennedyMy 10 year old son had been having private piano lessons but had stalled in his learning. Getting him to practice was difficult and he was unwilling to try any new songs. Things were looking grim. When I saw an ad for Musiah, I thought that would fit him to a tee. He loves being on the computer and loves quest type adventures. Musiah has proven to be a big hit with him. He is really enjoying the lessons and it is hard now to get him to stop playing on Musiah or just for fun. It has proved to be just the right amount of challenge and has helped him to enjoy playing again. He has now raced through level two and can't wait to get more pieces of clavitrisk. Thank you Musiah!

"Musiah is an excellent piano teacher and he has infinite patience"

carlosariasExcellent, Congratulations to all the Musiah team... I have been able to learn more about pedagogic system from Musiah. In my 41 years old I have received my first piano lesson and I'm  very excited, Musiah is an excellent piano teacher and he has infinite patience. Thank you, and you have a great team.

"I would recommend Musiah to any parent who wishes to introduce their child to learning the piano"

lindamcdowellLearning to play the piano with the help of the Musiah program has been an eye opening experience not just for my daughter but for me as well. Musiah has helped her to develop a deeper awareness and appreciation of music and we have both enjoyed her moments of success when she achieves the required progression on each level. The characters are likeable and the graphics are interactive and stylised in such a way that makes it very appealing for today's computer savvy children. My daughter is only 7 and has come a long way in such a short time (when compared with traditional lessons given by a music teacher) and we love how she can sit down to her lesson at any time from the comfort of home which makes it incredibly convenient for all of us. I would recommend Musiah to any parent who wishes to introduce their child to learning the piano.

"Great program... with Musiah my confidence and dreams are coming true"

sergiuGreat program, the learning it's fast, easy and fun. I spent like a year and a half learning some piano lessons on DVD and could play some RH songs but did not know any notes reading. Now in 2 months with Musiah I definitely excelled more then I did in a year. I am 32 years old at the moment and I thought it might be a little too late to learn playing but with Musiah my confidence and dreams are coming true. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning but since I tried the trial, on the first day I knew I'll be staying with it. Thanks a lot to Brendan Hogan - you are awesome.

"This really is the fastest, funnest and most relevant way to learn piano in the 21st century"

jac musiah picIn just two weeks of learning piano with Musiah, I've been able to buy sheet music and start playing songs that I love. This really is revolutionary. If you have no piano experience it's revolutionary b/c you won't be traumatised by boring repetition or snail-pace learning, rather you'll be catapulted into an imaginative world where learning is easy and challenges are fun. This really is the fastest, funnest (are we allowed to make up new words?) and most relevant way to learn piano in the 21st century :).

"I can't express my gratitude enough"

kathHi Brendan — I felt I had to share this with You. Recently we were on holiday in New Zealand and I visited an old church in Port Chalmers. The church, Presbyterian Church Of Iona was lovely as were the 2 lady volunteers. Imagine my excitement when they said I could have a play of the organ — despite my protests I was a learner — as their late organist of 30 years made it a practice to encourage. Well I thought — can I remember any music off by heart? — I reckon I did a passible job of Song of joy [a.k.a. Ode To Joy] and let me tell you my heart was soaring along with the Organ Pipes. Never would I have dreamt of such a thrill — Thanks to you and Musiah , I did. I can't express my gratitude enough. Regards,

"I am immensely satisfied with the Musiah system and thoroughly enjoy the lessons."

judy cocu mature age musiah piano studentAs a mature aged student I am fulfilling a lifetime dream to learn to read music and play. I am immensely satisfied with the Musiah system and thoroughly enjoy the lessons. The flexibility to work at my own pace and in my own time works well with other commitments. The animation is fun and the ability to review and practice at any time keeps me highly motivated. Additionally, the support is prompt and informative should issues arise. Thanks, Brendan - just love it!!!!!

"Musiah is really fun and I like the characters in the story"

Comment from a young Musiah student...

savannah at piano thumbs120My name is Savannah and I am 7 years old. Musiah is really fun and I like the characters in the story, especially the green girl alien! I think it's funny when Musiah scratches his head when I get the notes wrong but he helps me until I get it right. Mummy helps me with my lessons too and I can even do them in my pyjamas! My favourite song I have learned to play so far is 'Hot Cross Buns' but one day I want to learn how to play 'Jingle Bells' too.

"Musiah is a fun learning experience and I love all the colourful animations"

Comment from a Musiah student...

isabellaportrait1I like playing new songs and l like the challenges which makes me want to work harder to earn more stars. Musiah is a fun learning experience and I love all the colourful animations. I will definitely recommend this to all my friends and relatives.

"Amazing software... you have forever changed my life"

I cannot thank you enough for this amazing software. I never thought I would have the opportunity to learn to play. There are times after completing a lesson when I am overwhelmed with gratitude to the point of tears. I thank the Lord almighty for providing the few dollars I needed for Musiah. Though it may take every bit of faith to continue, and I’ve only barely begun…. I do believe you have forever changed my life, Mister Hogan. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

May God bless you abundantly, sir.

Sincerely,

Rebecca R - Hemet, United States

 

"I love Musiah... Technically, now you rank just below my parents in terms of gratitude and respect."

I'm 29 years old and have no training on the piano. I love Musiah. I love the story and the whole interface, yesterday I found myself clapping with my fellow alien mates after an exercise :) I live in Salalah, a city in Oman and I still have to find anyone who teaches or even knows traditional piano yet. Thank you for making my dream true and thank you for being my virtual Guru (in the traditional Indian term). Technically, now you rank just below my parents in terms of gratitude and respect.

"I am absolutely loving this program... It is a great gift to mankind!"

Dear Brendan, I am absolutely loving this program! I just finished the eleventh lesson, going through each one to see how you teach from one concept to the next, and have come to the conclusion that this program is an excellent way to learn to play piano. I actually wrote up my experience and posted it on my family's website. I hope many, especially my grandchildren, will begin learning through Musiah. It is a great gift to mankind! The Lord bless you for this.

"The best learning tool I've ever come across"

Thanks a lot for the encouragement. Ultimately I'm indebted to Musiah; it's perhaps the best learning tool I've ever come across.

Tom H - Gayton, United Kingdom

 

"The programme is really superb."

I am thoroughly enjoying the process and I would never have thought I could learn so much in such a short time. The programme is really superb. I think I am clocking several hours a night but it certainly doesn't feel it. I found the Musiah student videos very inspiring as well.

I'm very grateful for your support, its second to none. My only concern at this time is for all the traditional teachers across the globe!

Many thanks,

James M - Paignton, Devon, United Kingdom

 

"I am truly amazed at the progress my son is doing! I am so grateful that I found Musiah."

My 5 year old son is all excited; can't wait to beat atonals :) Several days ago he came to me at 22::00 and said: "Mummy, I can't sleep. I dream about atonals".

I have to say that it's a brilliant program! I was impressed when I tried it out, but I am truly amazed at the progress my son is doing, especially because of his age. And he won't let go until he gets 5 stars!

I completely stopped teaching him. The only thing that we practise in addition to Musiah, which I'm not even sure is necessary with all the technology, is writing notes in his manuscript pad.

Thank you! I am so grateful that I found Musiah.

Best Wishes,

Alexandra B - Arad, Negev, Israel

 

"What you have created is brilliant!  Absolutely brilliant."

I have to say that I think the stars have finally aligned for me to learn the piano and keyboard!  And I'm absolutely thrilled.  It has been a long time goal of mine as an adult to do so.  But as a busy executive, I don't have the luxury of learning on an instructor's timetable. So, When I told my wife earlier this week that I was finally ready and wanted to try and find an online piano instruction program that would let me go at my pace, she (being a piano player herself) said "all you need to do is buy some books for adults, and I can guide you through them". You don't know how absolutely positively without a doubt glad I am that I did not take her advice!  Had I done so, I hate to think what I would never have discovered in your solution or achieved from it. 

Having only experienced your application for a little under a week now, I can say that what you have created is brilliant!  Absolutely brilliant. This is a solution that not only meets my individual needs, but actually works. And in an unprecedented way for me, I feel as though I'm being instructed with professional human touch through a software application.  I hope that what must've been painstaking efforts for you is paying off, because it should. I know that it will for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I am finally learning how to play piano! 

With deep regard from an excited student,

Nate D - Saratoga Springs, Utah, United States

 

"You are on the forefront of a revolution in education — and not just in music"

I wanted to try learning something completely new to me (my wife for half  a century has pointed out I have no sense of rhythm or timing). Your use of the internet for competence based teaching with progressions, leveling up etc — is innovative and for me brilliant.

You are on the forefront of a revolution in education — and not just in music

Keep going!

"Thank you, thank you! Your software is incredible! In your debt always"

Thank you, thank you! Your software is incredible! I am a 50 year old Puppeteer from the United States that always dreamed of playing the keyboard, but knew it was probably far too complex. Your game approach looked fun enough to give it a try. Remarkable! I am actually reading music, playing the keyboard and having a blast!

Well, done Sir! It is nice having a patient piano teacher willing to help me 24 hours a day. ;-)

Thanks again! In your debt always.

Jonathan W - Longwood, Florida, United States

 

"Wonderful program...definitely worth its price!"

I'd like to thank you for such a wonderful program which allows me to learn piano staying at home and playing whenever I have free time. I truly love the way it's organized. Before signing up to Musiah notes were sort of Chinese characters to me, but not any more! Great job here and it's definitely worth its price!

Nikita A - Fryazino, Russia

 

"Such a great program... light years ahead"

I just wanted to compliment you on such a great program. I have studied music in some form or another since I was 3. I’m a decent composer and I realized if I really wanted to take my skill to the next level I needed to be able to play and sight read piano much, much better. I had the rudimentary keyboard skills in University and even some private lessons…but they always bored me to tears, so I just rushed through and it didn’t stick. I always wanted to play better, and even though I have a natural aptitude, lessons just didn’t work with however it is I learn. 

Musiah is amazing.  I watched your video on YouTube about the mistakes in how students are learning and was happily surprised at what good points you brought. Already I feel like I’m light years ahead of any other time I’ve studied.  And Musiah is able to keep me moving fast, yet at the same time, adding so many concepts in there, making sure I really get them and really getting the sight reading muscle working in a fun way.  So excited about it.  Thank you so much for creating it.  Can’t wait to show my friends with kids this great program.

"Your system is an answer to my prayers... truly a gift!"

I am really enjoying my lessons.  It has been my life-long dream to play the piano so your system is an answer to my prayers.  I have never spent more time practicing anything more than my piano and as a mature student I need all the practice I can manage —  lol.  Thank you for your vision and your dedication to helping your students become the best they can be.  Your system truly is a gift! Thanks again for all your help and for Musiah.  I tell everyone about my newfound passion and about this amazing program.  It has truly been life-changing for me!

"As significant, exciting and life changing as when Apple released Logic"

Thank you, I'm in and working with this program. It's amazing.  For me and my development as a songwriter, it's as significant, exciting and life changing as when Apple released Logic.

"I want you to know how VERY much I am enjoying the lessons. SOOOO infinitely much!"

I want you to know how VERY much I am enjoying the lessons. SOOOO infinitely much! Please know I am a 60 year old girl (at heart! :) and have taken lessons at least four different times in my life. Over a year when I was 7. Almost a year when I was 10 (different teacher). Another year (original teacher) at age 31. And one more year eight years ago (young teacher). This is the very first time in ALL these years that I am able to play the keys without looking at my fingers! Although I've messed up SO many times I am now able to keep right on playing to the end. Amazing!!! I just now passed the audition for lesson 17, giving me a total of 80 stars. I am so very excited and was wondering if it would be possible to enroll in the program for a year instead of the original month I had signed on for? Thank you so very much for your dedication to making learning fun AND possible!

"We all think Musiah is brilliant! Now, the traditional method seems to be so painfully slow and boring."

I guess my son Ariel [who has just completed Level 5] got his talents from his dad, who graduated from the Royal College of Music (who is by the way impressed with the software and tells about it to all his friends). We all think Musiah is brilliant! Who would have thought that in just 4 months with Musiah a 6 year old would be playing like that? Now, the traditional method seems to be so painfully slow and boring. Thank you!

Alexandra B - Arad, Negev, Israel

 

"I think Musiah is a marvelous accomplishment, I'm truly amazed at the speed with which my skills have improved."

I think Musiah is a marvelous accomplishment, I'm truly amazed at the speed with which my skills have improved. Brendan, you're sounding more like my college professor every day - and I mean that as a thank you. I had no idea there would be such close support when I signed on. Thanks much...very much.

"The people who see me progress are amazed... I hope Musiah will soon become the main way of learning the piano."

Thank you once again for your kind and motivating words teacher!! I patted myself on the back after I did Carnival Part 1 from Level 6. I really liked the difficulty increase on that part. Anyone who wants to learn to play the piano should do it this way. Thank you for creating this revolutionary way of learning the piano! I've been spreading the word about Musiah. and the people who see me progress are amazed and also started spreading the word. I hope Musiah will soon become the main way of learning the piano.

"Musiah is much much better than traditional piano lessons... Absolutely, I'll recommend Musiah to my friends."

Thank you very much for your recommendations to Rabia. You follow up the students' progress very closely.
Musiah is a very very good piano lessons website. I can say that Musiah is much much better than traditional piano lessons. Rabia has learned a piano lessons over 3 years  with a traditional piano teacher at a music school. After I let her, she tried Musiah( the free trial lessons.) Then, I asked her ideas about "Which one is better?" Her answer was "Musiah"(She said from her heart). I do agree with her. What I can say is "Absolutely, I'll recommend Musiah to my friends."

"Although I’m a pianist and a former piano teacher... I want to tell you how much we really love Musiah!"

I want to tell you how much we really love Musiah! Although I’m a pianist and a former piano teacher, teaching my own kids to play piano was not an enjoyable experience for any of us! We had difficulty finding time for lessons, and we butted heads constantly. Musiah has been wonderful for our family! My daughters now enjoy piano time and I love how the practicing element is incorporated into the “game.” I’ve recommended your program to many of my friends and will continue to do so. (Plus, now when people ask me to teach their kids piano I can say, “Try Musiah!” instead of just saying, “Sorry, I’m too busy!”)

"Musiah is the first course I have ever undertaken where I am not rushing to get to the end."

Thank you for your great work on Musiah.  I have to say that Musiah is the first course I have ever undertaken where I am not rushing to get to the end.  On the contrary, I can’t wait to sit down and play but hope that I never actually complete the course so that I can keep coming back for more!

Ian P - Berkshire, United Kingdom

 

"As an adult learner...  I am delighted with my progress to date"

As an adult learner I am delighted with the flexibility that musiah gives me. I can do the lessons at a time that fits in with my work and family lives and fit in practise in the same way. I am delighted with my progress to date.

"We are thrilled with the results my 9 year old daughter has obtained so far"

We are thrilled with the results my 9 year old daughter has obtained so far. The program keeps her interest and the constant feedback and interactive learning keeps her attention and encourages her to keep working when she cannot master the skills initially. The value of the program is great. If we took her to lessons at a store she would receive 30 minutes a week for about $25. We paid for the whole year and she has already completed 19 lessons and is moving on the level 2 (it has been less than 3 months) She is playing with both hands and learning to read music and play in time. We are a family of musicians, (husband - guitar, son-drums, mom-sings) and we have told many people about Musiah, we are sold!

"I am becoming able to read music from the sheet music and play it which is quite remarkable"

I'm an adult student learning to play piano with Musiah. I have finished level one and approaching the end of level two. I have no previous experience with the piano. This is early stages for me but slowly I am becoming able to read music from the sheet music and play it which is quite remarkable. I'm looking forward to working my way through this course and enjoy the interactive spaceship scenario, definitely appeals to the big kid inside of me. Thanks Musiah.

"This program is ahead of its time.This is the best ! I love it"

I look forward to my lessons. It's fun, I don't know of any other online music teacher that can give me this amount of support . This program is ahead of its time.This is the best ! I love it. And I'm 50 yrs young.

"This is the first time I feel that I will really be able to learn piano with the kind of help I need"

Just wanted to say thank you so much for creating Musiah. We saw the ad on X Factor and decided to give it a try. As an adult learner, I had lessons for about a year or two when I was in around grade 1-2 at school. The rest I taught myself, so could never really pinpoint where I was going wrong, or how I could improve beyond a certain level. This is the first time I feel that I will really be able to learn piano with the kind of help I need. One of my daughter's (Lainey) who is just beginning with piano lessons with a teacher absolutely loves Musiah too. It is really easy to use, fun and makes us both want to play! We LOVE it!! Her teacher can't believe how good she is going after only 2 piano lessons with him.

"Musiah has been a great tool in teaching my four children the piano keyboard"

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!

"The real genius is the man who dreamt of Musiah and then had the courage and determination to make it happen"

The real genius is the man who dreamt of Musiah and then had the courage and determination to make it happen. Its an incredibly difficult thing to come up with something new and original but you have achieved it. I imagine it was  as hard to produce, as maybe writing a good book coupled with a computer program coupled with a film. It is a wonderful piece of work. Any way thanks for it , and may it bring you  every possible reward.

"Musiah is very convenient and affordable, and covers all aspects of music"

We were so glad to hear about Musiah when it was released. My children went to piano lessons for nearly five years using the Suzuki method, and although they loved the teacher, I'm afraid they still knew very little about reading music and couldn't identify most of the notes. We knew it was time for a change, and Musiah is very convenient and affordable, and covers all aspects of music. Thanks again for a great product, Tania.

"How much of a positive impact this has had on both my daughters... Their progress and enthusiasm has truly been amazing"

I will definitely write up a review when I can find the words to describe how much of a positive impact this has had on both my daughters. Their progress and enthusiasm has truly been amazing. We require them to spend at least 20 minutes a day except for Fridays, but lately they have been asking if they can do more! We have a piano upstairs and I am amazed when they sit down and play. They have even opened a beginner’s book and sight read pieces fairly accurately on the piano. When you consider they knew nothing 6 months ago, their progress under Musiah watchful tutelage is truly impressive.  Keep up the good work! When I find the time, I am going to continue my lessons. By that time, my girls will be able to help me!

"We found this an ideal piano program for those people in regional areas where access to piano teachers are scarce or non-existent"

Ciaran has finished level 1 and passed the performance at the end. He is very excited about it and we will send some recordings to you in the next day or two. Thank you for allowing him to participate [in the Musiah Case Study] and we would like to know if he could continue with the other levels [in the VIP Beta Testing program]. We found this an ideal piano program for those people in regional areas where access to piano teachers are scarce or non-existent.

"The setup for the hardware was really effective and had the keyboard and mouse set up effortlessly"

From the perspective of a person who has just installed the Beta software...

Bravo! Just letting you know it all went swimmingly today. I will be working on a very positive Beta feedback statement soon. The setup for the hardware was really effective and had the keyboard and mouse set up effortlessly. The only real eye-opener is how badly my daughter has been taught rhythm at her primary school - a veritably scandalous lack of timing!! For the first lesson I actually had to waltz with her around the living room to get her body to understand the rhythm. I thought all music teachers accepted that rhythm is truly essential. A hard but very good day!
Many thanks! Graham

"Musiah made it a fun way of learning, to the point of being asked at every waking moment if she could do Musiah"

Before Musiah, my 10yo daughter would lose interest in playing keyboard, very quickly. Within the first session [with Musiah], she was hooked, getting excited when she passed her first "audition". Musiah made it a fun way of learning, to the point of being asked at every waking moment if she could do Musiah. Also, because the lessons are "tutored", there is no cat screeches of wrong notes, or boring repetitive "c", "c", "c" as my parents endured :) Now she has the confidence, she wants to continue learning keyboard. Thank you Musiah!

"I am getting so good now, I have even played some songs for my family"

Comment from a young Musiah student...

Before starting Musiah, I had only put the keyboard on to play a song for me. I tried to learn from mum's computerised keyboard, but it was too hard. Even as early as the first session on Musiah, I found it quite easy to learn. I have been learning with a teacher once a week now, but Musiah is fun and I can do this at home in my own time. I am getting so good now, I have even played some songs for my family, including Jingle Bells at Christmas. Thank you Musiah, I can't wait to learn more.

"Much much better than traditional piano lessons"

Dear Brendan,

Thank you very much for your recommendations to Robyn. You follow up the student progress very closely.

Musiah is a very very good piano lessons website. I can say that Musiah is much much better than a traditional piano lessons.

Robyn has learned a piano lessons over 3 years  with a traditional piano teacher at a music school.

After, I let she tried Musiah.( the free trial lessons.) Then, I asked her ideas that " Which one is better?" Her answer was "musiah"(She said from her heart)

I do agree with her. 

What I can say is "Absolutely, I'll recommend Musiah to my friends."  

I did recommend Musiah to one of my friend. She brought her daughter to try Musiah at my place last night. Her daughter had a piano lesson with a  traditional piano teacher before too. After she tried Musiah for few hours. She told me that " I really like Musiah". Now my friend looking to buy a laptop and Midi controller to join Musiah.

Thank you Musiah. Thank you Brendan.

"A fantastic professional way to learn music. My son's improvement is unbelieveable."

Here I really want to thank Musiah! My son George is a primary school grade 1 student. He has a great improvement from level 1 to level 6 with the help of Musiah within less than 4 months. Every week he just spends less 4 hours, but the improvement is unbeliveable. The most important thing is Musiah giving George passion on keyboard. I never need to push him. He is just enjoy learning! I think Musiah provide a fantastic professional way to learn music!

"Really enjoyable... I would urge anyone interested in using Musiah to give the free trial go"

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.

"A practical blessing to the whole world... and first class customer service - Simply Amazing!"

Musiah is an amazing revolutionary product that puts the piano within reach of everyone! It is incredible that now anyone can undertake piano lessons in the comfort and privacy of their own home (by themselves)! This is not only a practical blessing to the whole world, but it also addresses as series of issues and essentially some significant barriers that prevent people from learning to play instruments or specifically the piano. For example a few things that prevented me from playing the piano in high school was; fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, uncertainty about finding a good teacher, how long I will last, financial resources, cost of lessons, return on investment, the piano itself! The list just went on! However with Musiah all of these issues were addressed with a single high caliber product and first class customer service - Simply Amazing!

"I came across Musiah and it changed my life."

Lorraine Hornby PianoI am a mature age student coming up for the big 70 and I had always wanted to play the piano I bought my piano a couple of years ago and tried to teach my self with various free lessons on utube. What a disaster Surfing the web I came across Musiah and it changed my life. (now I don't have time to make tea for my husband) It was very had for me to start as my fingers were so stiff but now I'm finding it much easier and really enjoying the lessons and the discipline. I used to break out in a nervous sweat doing the auditions at the end of a song because I so wanted to pass them. So now I have passed the first level and am very proud of myself. Officially I am now a rookie. My partner says that my playing technique has improved with passing the first level. To all the seniors out there who think it would be too hard to learn the piano have a go, It's good fun and it has given me a great sense of achievement. Thanks to Musiah I really like this programme as it allows me to learn at my own pace.

"Musiah is has truly been an answer to our prayers — If I could design the perfect piano program this would be it!"

We think Musiah is great. My 13 year old son just loves it. We are now starting our 11 year old son. There is nothing out there like it. To be able to have the instant feedback at every practice is huge, you don't even get that with a private teacher. When my son took lessons from a teacher once a week he would forget how he was supposed to play a piece and so he would be playing it wrong all week until we met with the teacher again. That's a lot of wasted time, which also translates into a lot of wasted money. Another great feature of Musiah for parents is the emailed reports we receive. I don't play the piano myself and I have several children so I can't sit with each child during their lesson, so what would happen is the teacher used to tell us that my son was not practicing what he was supposed to be practicing during the week, and he was not practicing the amount of time he was supposed to be doing. With Musiah I never have to worry about those issues because I get the reports telling me exactly what he is doing. I also don't have to fight with my son to get him to practice because he really enjoys playing with Musiah, he's always excited to get to the next level. Musiah is has truly been an answer to our prayers, it has taken such a load off of us as parents. If I could design the perfect piano program this would be it, the developer was quite a genius. To top it all off you just couldn't get a better price. One more thing that has been great about Musiah is that since it is done on a keyboard my kids can practice any time of day without disturbing anyone because they can just plug in the headphones. What more could we ask for?

"I find Musiah is better than an actual teacher"

esther musiah online piano studentAs an adult student with no prior piano experience, I find Musiah fun. This is great exercise for my "elderly" brain. ( I am 58 years old.) I believe that learning to play piano at my age will help keep my brain from stagnating! I like the fact that you get immediate feedback on what you've played. If your notes are wrong, you will know immediately. If your timing is off, you'll be informed promptly! My children took piano lessons when they were young with a piano teacher. I find that Musiah is better than an actual teacher because you can go over your piece, again and again without Musiah getting frustrated with you!

"A wonderful experience with Musiah. Totally exceeded all my expectations!"

benedict ow musiah adult piano studentIt has been a wonderful experience with Musiah. Totally exceeded all my expectations! I was actually planning to get a piano teacher for my wife and myself and then I came across Musiah. Since there is a 14 day trial, no harm trying. On the 1st day of trying, it totally changed my perspective of how impressive an online program can be. Besides being an excellent software, what I like best is the interaction with Brendan. The service he gave was excellent! Thumbs up! Solved all the issues I have and frankly, how often do you get the inventor/owner to call you personally to solve issues. This totally won me over. Some main pros of Musiah: Easy to comprehend, learn at your own pace, very cost effective, excellent customer service and I like the fact that you have to go thru auditions for every level... Well, the list goes on. This is only my 1st week of lesson and I'm loving it so much. Thanks Brendan for this wonderful program and the excellent customer service!

"I cannot recommend this highly enough, it blows piano marvel and playground sessions out of the water"

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.

"One of the best value ways to learn Keyboard anywhere. I love it."

craig irvine melbourne piano lessons studentI have always wanted to play piano proficiently and as an adult I wasn't sure how I would ever achieve this goal. Now courtesy of the Musiah program I honestly believe I will achieve my goal. Musiah is well thought through and very thorough. Musiah is helping me improve my timing, music reading and technique all at the same time. I can learn at my own rate and every practise is an opportunity for me to gain greater progress. I thought at one stage that I was moving too quickly and perhaps I wasn't learning what I needed to thoroughly enough. This was a concern I didn't need to hold as the performance challenge meant that I had to polish up three songs at full tempo including a couple that I had found challenging. This was great and has kept me accountable. I also have my daughter learning at the same time and we are able to help each other. It is a fun, engaging and professional way to learn Piano. Given the cost and number of people who are able to use it under one license it is also one of the best value ways to learn Keyboard anywhere. I love it.

"I would recommend Musiah to anybody who wants to learn the piano/keyboard."

bill deal musiah piano lessons studentI'm a 42 year old male (husband and father of two young children) with no previous music experience. I've always wanted to learn how to play the keyboard, but never had the time or money to pay for lessons. Musiah gave me the ability to learn on my own schedule (even late at night) at a very affordable cost. I'm learning at a much quicker pace than I thought possible and I'm always very proud/happy at my progress upon completing a lesson.

I would recommend Musiah to anybody who wants to learn the piano/keyboard.

I think the flexibility of taking lessons when you have time in your schedule, reasonable cost of the program, engaging content/lessons and the ability to see real progress in a relatively short timeframe are all great benefits of using Musiah.

Playing the keyboard has become a new joy in my life and I get a real sense of accomplishment in completing each lesson. I really look forward to continuing to learn to play the keyboard and developing my skills over time.

"Really great stuff!!"

alejandro malo musiah piano lessons studentI already play piano, but I like the idea to prove the software and mostly to encourage my 8 year old boy to get interested in piano. After few weeks we both learn and have fun together, and suprisely we are more connected as father and son. He learn to play piano with both hands and finally he can easly identify any note on the keyboard, and what I like the most is the he stop play ps3 to stay and practice more time with Musiah. Really great stuff!!

"Fantastic software!"

I'm really enjoying Musiah, it's fantastic software! You have created an amazing tool to help everyone have a fun time learning something difficult. Thank you.

"We are thrilled with the results!"

pethel family of musiciansWe are thrilled with the results my 9 year old daughter has obtained so far. The program keeps her interest and the constant feedback and interactive learning keeps her attention and encourages her to keep working when she cannot master the skills initially. The value of the program is great. If we took her to lessons at a store she would receive 30 minutes a week for about $25. We paid for the whole year and she has already completed 19 lessons and is moving on the level 2 (it has been less than 3 months) She is playing with both hands and learning to read music and play in time. We are a family of musicians, (husband - guitar, son-drums, mom-sings) and we have told many people about Musiah, we are sold!

"By far the best teaching method I have used — I look forward to my lessons every day"

bruce eatonI am 61 years old and a tennis coach. With no previous musical experience I have been teaching myself piano for two years from youtube and books. I also took weekly private lessons for 6 months. Until I discovered Musiah I was all over the place learning bits and pieces of things but progress was slow and uncertain. I was always searching for a teaching method that consistently measured progress, while using interesting music, and a structured approach to learning. Musiah does all that and more. It is by far the best teaching method I have used. Every lesson builds on the previous one, and progress is specific and measurable. It is more fun than any computer game, and I look forward to my lessons every day.

"Keyboard instruction, skill development and music theory in a fun format- who would have thought that was possible?"

matt musiah piano studentOur 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 suprise. 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!

"I am delighted with my progress to date."

As an adult learner I am delighted with the flexibility that musiah gives me. I can do the lessons at a time that fits in with my work and family lives and fit in practise in the same way. I am delighted with my progress to date.

"The interactive Artificial Intelligence is an awesome way to learn how to play!"

I am 66 years old and just started piano lessons with Musiah only a couple of months ago. I had not taken piano lessons, or played the piano for that matter, since age 12. I just completed Level 7 and am completely satisfied with my progress. I really like the fact that I can take the lessons at my convenience whenever it fits into my work schedule. I can do it at home and don't have to travel for a piano lesson. I can go at my own pace. I also like the "objectivity" that the program provides. The interactive artificial intelligence is an awesome way to learn how to play!

"Musiah has been amazing! This is the best software I've experienced so far"

lishamckoyI'm thrilled with how organized the curriculum is as well as how precise and immediate the feedback is when I make mistakes. I've experienced other software that doesn't correct mistakes and that isn't helpful for learning. I feel like I'm making so much progress so quickly with Musiah and it's very gratifying. This is the best software I've experienced so far and can't wait for my daughter to be able to use it. It is also a great deal of fun to use!

"Excellent interactive and complete piano program"

beto guzmanI have done an extensive research for piano classes for my 7 year old daughter after she took some classes with a piano teacher but got easily bored. I find MUSIAH and I took the 2 week trial to test it by myself. After an intensive use (I have no prior piano instruction) these are my conclusions: 1. Excellent interactive and complete piano program: theory and REAL TIME piano practice that corrects and reinforces all playing concerns INMEDIATELLY (I didn't find another program that really make that, it's like having a teacher near you all time 2. Fun learning environment (essential for kids... and why not adults?? : ) 3. You have your Musiah teacher anywhere, anytime and any long sessions as you want. Something else, my family is Spanish native speaker (sorry for my English mistakes), and we usually learn music using solfegio, but those were no barriers at the time of use MUSIAH, and although initially it was for my daughter, now also my 16 year old son and myself got catched by this learning program. Conclusion: we are now playing piano (real songs as beginners... for now) As a user, it's the correct way to go, and we hope it continues evolving with adding classes for higher piano levels.

 

"It sounded intriguing so I downloaded it. Thank God I did. It’s amazing."

tim green With age comes the realisation that you can do anything with determination and application. So a few weeks ago, for reasons I can’t explain, I suddenly decided: I’m going to learn piano. 

When I decided to learn, I knew I couldn’t teach myself. Instead, I had to ask myself a question: do I want to do this properly? Learn sight reading and correct technique and all that? I wasn’t sure. I don’t like classical music much, so the idea of studying grade 1 Mozart or whatever didn’t get me excited. But I knew it was probably the right way to go.

While thinking about how to find a teacher, I happened across Musiah on YouTube. It sounded intriguing so I downloaded it. Thank God I did. It’s amazing. I’m now coming up to two weeks in, and I’m half way through Level 3. For me, the program does everything Brendan describes. It breaks everything down into small chunks, just hard enough to be a challenge but not insurmountable. It consolidates existing learning with every new lesson, and it turns everything into a game.

Though I know I’m being manipulated in a way, it doesn’t stop me striving to pass the auditions, improve my scores and progress. I spend well over an hour a day on Musiah. After less than two weeks, I can’t quite believe the progress I’ve made.

I think of all the things that makes Musiah work, the most important is that you’re never ‘alone’ while you’re learning. It makes you want to get back to the piano - you know there’s some new thing to learn or test to pass.

I sometimes wonder where I would be if I had hired a teacher. I might be on my second lesson by now. How much could I have learned? I assume I would have picked up and practiced maybe one or two items of knowledge, rather than dozens - as I have with Musiah.

The articles on the Musiah site talk a lot about how the program doesn’t just teach you technique, but also deeper lessons about patience and determination. It’s so true. In just 10 days, I’ve discovered the joy of slowing difficult things down, and the pleasure of seeing my muscle memory steadily improve. I still get very frustrated. But I can cope with it.

Also, I can look ahead to the songs in later levels and - though they seem impossible - a part of me thinks: well, if I follow the instructions and practice, I can get there. I’m so grateful to have found Musiah. It’s become a wonderful obsession, and I’m determined to finish the course. My old resistence to classical repertoire has also gone. I just see these pieces as markers of my progress. Oh, and it’s true. Brendan really does reply personally to your emails. I’ve already sent him three! He must be sick of me.
