Piano instruction made fun with video game

People that play the piano beautifully fascinate me. It is interesting the different paths some of them take to become good at it. There are so many options now days for children and adults interested in becoming concert pianists, or just become comfortable with this instrument and play it whenever they feel like it, carry a tune for their enjoyment or simply to please others like myself.

Many excellent piano players start their education at a young age, because they are given the opportunity by their parents, relatives or friends. As a result, self-confidence increases, opening doors of inspiration and self-satisfaction to become better at their new enterprise, and with time they find a way to express themselves and are admired by people they never dreamed of.

The Internet, computers, and video games, become excellent mediums to transmit music information to children at an early age. The challenge remains in figuring out which video games should parents buy and keep.

As far as piano learning is concerned, recently I have been shown and become interested in the Piano Wizard video game package from Allegro Multimedia. This piano instruction computer software game provides a fun attention grabber display setting to users. Teaching to play music with game activities on the screen that they can interact using a fun color-coded keyboard. This makes children start enjoying music, without even realizing they are stepping into the piano-playing world. This computer instruction game then teaches music notation while children get more into the game, making the learning curve transparent, pressure free, fun and enjoyable.

The system works with MIDI files that one can download to a computer with the Piano Wizard software already installed; in fact, the company's main site has links to many sites that have a large amount of MIDI files and information.

I find that the price for the keyboard and Piano Wizard video game package is very affordable for all the features and capabilities included in the software. I really do like the fact that one can easily up-load any type of song in MIDI format into the game software and start playing it along in minutes. I believe your time will be well spent while visiting their piano instruction site and learn about their excellent piano instruction game offerings.

My best wishes to you and your children in this musical and uplifting venture.
