here to buy Keyboard Coach from Amazon now. -- -- Using the latest
high-tech gizmos such as video sequences, a computerized metronome,
and onscreen notation, Keyboard Coach takes the would-be pianist from
the simplest one-bar boogie through the execution of fairly complex
rock, pop, country, and classical tunes.
On the way, the Coach also spots your mistakes, gives you hints
on fingering, and helps you polish your style with video clips.
Keyboard Coach will also slow down the tunes when things get a bit
tricky, or take you through the actual construction of a keyboard
if you're wholly mystified. And when you're finally ready to hit
the ivories, the Coach will provide orchestral and percussive accompaniment
to your joyous vamps and riffs.
-- Keyboard Coach won't admonish you for skipping practice. However,
that may be a good reason to supplement the keyboard coach with
human teacher! It helps to have encouragement and guidance from
an experienced musician.
-- "Never having had either piano or keyboard lessons, I was
apprehensive about learning to play my keyboard by myself through
a software program. I was pleasantly surprised. Keyboard Coach has
25 individual lessons to choose from, starting with how to use the
program. I really liked the easy way you are shown how to connect
your keyboard to the computer to monitor the interactive lessons
( I was not looking forward to that part )".
-- "The opening screen looks like a winding ribbon with multiple
lessons. There are five rows on this ribbon with five lessons in
each row. Click on a box on the ribbon to open that lesson. The
lessons offer both written and video/sound clips. The clips can
be viewed in a small window or full screen, and range from explaining
how the plethora of buttons on my keyboard work,to observing correct
finger placement to mimic -- and actually play a song. -- Additional
stuff includes what they call Cool Band Trax, or "music missing
the keyboard" where you can practice for a real audition, or like
me just pretend. -- If you own a keyboard collecting dust and you
have never taken a lesson before, Keyboard Coach is going to make
you feel like a star."
