With over seventy videos and three-hundred lessons, you'll come away knowing how to play some of your favorite songs regardless of whether you're using a concert piano or a MIDI keyboard.

The program is taught by Irma Irene Justicia, a Julliard professional who will walk you through each lesson. Detailed evaluations help you correct any errors. The animated keyboard leads you through the finger positions, and the metronome, recorder, and progress tracking keep you on track. Also included are hit songs from Billy Joel, Elton John, and many more artists.

Interactive Feedback with Note and Finger Tracker to allow the piano software to listen as you play melodies and displays your playing accuracy - a great tool for beginner piano instruction that works with both electronic keyboards and acoustic pianos.
