eMedia Piano & Keyboard Method Educational Edition $50.00

About eMedia Piano

Latest version of Educational Edition - eMedia's best-selling piano instruction software is here. It is taught by distinguished Juilliard School of Music instructor, Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., with over 300 step-by-step full-screen lessons and more than 70 video demonstrations.

New Instant Feedback works with both electronic keyboards and acoustic pianos. It listens to melodies through the computer's microphone or MIDI and shows whether they are played correctly! With a MIDI keyboard, you also get a detailed evaluation with specific feedback on playing mistakes. Students learn to read music and play over 100 popular songs as an animated keyboard guides them through the fingerings.

As students make their way through the course, the software keeps track of their progress by marking lesson screens that have been visited and keeping a record of scores on interactive music theory review and ear training quizzes. When used with an electronic MIDI keyboard, an overall percentage score is also tracked for each song or exercise. With the included Instructor Tool, the instructor can review the students' progress, take notes and generate reports as needed.

Teachers can manage up to 500 student accounts and use eMedia's detailed assessment system to monitor students' scores and advancement through the course. Integrated network connectivity has been upgraded to also support eMedia's internet-based assessment server (one year subscription included). It allows for easy implementation of progress sharing between Windows and Mac computers and enables students to practice either at home or in school while the teacher views progress & assessment information.

Students learn songs and exercises from either the music notation or an animated keyboard that displays fingerings in time with the music. Songs and exercises are enhanced by live-recorded audio, variable-speed MIDI keyboard tracks and colorful MIDI accompaniments. Students learn from over 100 popular classical, blues, pop and rock songs, including hit songs from composers and artists such as Ludwig van Beethoven, J.S. Bach, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan and Elton John. Other accessories include a built-in digital metronome, a one track recorder and the new interactive Note & Finger Tracker.
