This method is just fantastic for me because I can skip over all the things I already know, and I can take the same lesson over and over and over again if I'm having trouble with it, never trying the patience of the computer (unlike the humans!) I've been using it maybe two weeks? and I'm amazed at all the things I've learned, and all the songs I can play. The teacher's videos add just the right touch, the singing on the songs is lovely. There's an accompaniment track for the songs so you can get up to tempo and have fun playing with them. Guitar chords are provided (!) which means I can add the chords I know on selected simple songs to make the lesson more challenging. It's a heavily song-based curriculum, lots of Baroque music, but I'm also working on Piano Man by Billy Joel.
My feeling is once I finish this disk, I will be ready for piano lessons with a human. And I will be playing piano pretty darn well by then, too. I just can't recommend this highly enough.
If you have Windows 10 don't bother ordering the CD, just buy the download program. I like to have CD's of programs since I use a couple different Laptops and also for a backup if my computer crashes. This CD isn't supported on Windows 10 and you have to download the program and enter a serial number in the box and it can only be used on one computer.
The biggest drawback for me is it won't tell if you are playing at the correct tempo, just if you hit the right notes. I have no problems hitting the right notes, where I'm rusty at is playing with the right tempo and holding the notes for the correct time period and this won't show you the tempo.
I'd recommend Piano Marvel instead. It's a monthly fee but you have a lot of music library choices and it will grade you based on if you play in the correct tempo.
It includes short videos of a person playing piano so you can see proper posture and such. Each song comes with (optional) accompaniment, which can make it funner to play (especially with the simple songs). You can also slow the songs down while learning them. The software grades your playing with a percentage score, and gives you details on your errors (if you want them).
This is a great program if you really want to learn to play on your own.
Too many courses tend to bore you to death with useless information that slows you down and doesn't inspire you to continue. Not this one. While simple and to the point, the exercises that it uses are very good, with little or no fluff to get in the way of its intended purpose, teaching me the basics on how to play piano. More than this you cant ask for in a teaching course. Well worth the price asked.
As for the product, I had been using it on another computer, but uninstalled it from that computer and then reloaded on this computer. I like the program thus far, probably less than 20% into the program.
