Well, I must say that I am impressed with this software. You do not need to have any background whatsoever in music, which I don't. My son is very enthusiastic, and I have practiced everyday since it arrived. My three year old daughter is now asking for a violin for her birthday.
The animated characters are not annoying at all, and the games are brief, but meaningful. The games are like pop quizes that give you a wake-up call to point out where your short-comings are so you can reveiw if neccessary.
Another feature about the software I like is that you don't need the disc to run it. My husband has gotten a guitar so that he can play with the boy, and we have the software installed on 3 different computers.
Honestly, if you don't play an instrument, but you have always wanted to, you will not be disappointed with this software.

When I saw this software I figured that it was about the cost of a lesson and I could do it on my own time. My two concerns were that 1) it's geared towards children and 2) it does not say if it's compatible with Windows 8. Well, it arrived today and put all my fears to rest. I just stopped using it after two hours because I realized it had gotten dark outside!
It works with windows 8, so no trouble there, and the lessons are basic but really helpful. After just two hours I feel so much more confident and I sound a lot better. It has some great features, like a tuner, and it shows me if I'm putting my fingers down on the correct part of the string (remember that you need a microphone on your computer to use these features). It goes through everything from how to hold a bow to how to read music to what the different parts of the violin are called.
Those two hours I just spent with this program would have cost me between $90 and $120 with any teacher in town. I saved money and am having a lot of fun. Just what I need to keep me motivated!
