The Easiest Way to Learn Piano
Arranged in thirty chapters on two methods, the lessons cover the basics such as hand position, rhythm and playing on black keys, then move on to more advanced concepts such as music notation, sight reading, intervals, chords, scales, developing manual dexterity, advanced rhythms and transitions, interpretive expression marks, the blues, improvisation, and ensemble performance. Song selections can be looped, slowed or sped up.
There are two types of Interactive Feedback. Instant Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes as you progress through a melody. Your computer will listen as you play and highlight correctly played notes in green. As you reach your goal of playing the melody correctly, you’ll discover that reading music notation is easier than you ever thought possible! Instant Feedback is available for both MIDI and acoustic pianos.
The second type of feedback, Interactive Evaluation Feedback, gives you detailed information about your performance. It works on chords as well as melodies. It can give you details like 'you played this note late' or 'you played B instead of C.' Interactive Evaluation Feedback requires a MIDI keyboard to be connected.
Interactive Feedback is in eMedia Piano and Keyboard Method and for selected exercises in eMedia Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method.
Built-in Piano Tools
The Note Tracker and Finger Tracker tools show you the note you play as music notation and on eMedia’s Animated Keyboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing and learn to read music faster!
A digital metronome to keep you on rhythm and a recorder to help gauge progress and share your playing with others.
Enhanced multi-track audio and colorful MIDI accompaniments enhance the learning experience.

ATTENTION MAC USERS - Beginning with macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple has eliminated the option to run 32-bit apps on the Mac. If you wish to continue using our applications, which currently require 32-bit support, do not upgrade your operating system past Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave). Alternatively, you can retain an older Mac operating system on a separate drive partition. eMedia developers are currently working on software updates to support Catalina and future versions of macOS, but this is a major undertaking. eMedia is currently unable to foresee how long it will take to create these new versions. If you purchased your eMedia software on or after September 7, 2019, upon receiving proof of purchase eMedia Music will provide you with a free upgrade to a macOS 10.15 (Catalina)-compatible version of an eMedia application when it becomes available. All other registered owners of eMedia software will be qualified for discounted upgrades.

If I were basing my review on the software itself I would rate it very high (This Changes In Update). The setup was a bit tedious since you have to download the program from the internet (CDs don't work with Windows 10) and then you have to make sure you have the latest player drivers, which is fine. The interface is very nice and I am using a MIDI keyboard. I really like the way it lays things out and in actually very well though out... Software and Interface and functionality would get 5 stars.
Now, that being said... The music in which they try to teach is absolutely HORRID... Songs from the 1500's to 1800's is just a plain awful to play... No one has ever heard of it, no one has ever played, no one wants to play it, and no one wants to hear it... To me, the software is there to teach piano and in order to do that you must be able to keep the person learning interested in learning. By having to practice disgustingly horrible songs that quite frankly have no rhythm, are extremely dated, have no timing, are out of tune, and the beat is almost non existent........ it really makes it frustrating and hard to keep interested in learning..Then they make you play the same songs over and over just using different keys and mixture of keys. I could give you a long list of the songs and you would be asking yourself... Why. As of now I am looking into something else...... Music: NO STARS.
UPDATE: 1/18/2018... So, I went out and got a Piano and a New Mic... I went through the steps of setting up this software with the acoustic piano and Mic. Even though eMedia touts this as being able to use it with an acoustic piano...it simply doesn't work with anything except a MIDI interface. I have made several email contacts and today I received this from their Tech Support.
"By the time a student is ready for Intermediate Piano & Keyboard Method, their musical ear is developed to the point where they don't need to rely on the software telling them if they've played a piece correctly or not. They can listen to the example and compare it to their own playing. There is interactivity, but it is limited to Lessons 17, 20, 32, 34, 40, 42, 43, 52, 53, 55, 57, 58, 71, 81, 99, 100, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 120, 124, 126, 128, 129, 131, 133, and 136. Since the software isn't listening to your performance, it won't be able to automatically turn the page. While mildly inconvenient, you will need to use the mouse/touchpad or arrow keys to change pages on a multi-page song.

So basically, this company is totally dishonest in their representation of their software.
I am having trouble with the QuickTime Player required for the lessons on Windows 10. I keep getting
QuickTime Install Error Alert
'ul_catalog.98CB24AD_52FB_DB5F_FF1F_C8B3B9A1E18E' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file 'QuickTime.cab'. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package."
This is preventing me from being able to use these powerful lessons on learning to play piano. I am going to reflect for a couple of days on whether to return them or if there is some lawful solution that I am not aware of. Not really optimized for Windows 10 because of the exclusivity of QuickTime as the player. If a solution is found then I will change my rating once I see what I got. Right now I don't know because I can't open the lessons.
