With Piano and Keyboard Method Deluxe for Windows in electronic download format from eMedia Music, you get both the Piano and Keyboard Method and Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method tutorials in one package. You'll learn how to play piano or keyboard and benefit from feedback on how you are doing. With over 450 lessons, 120 videos, and more than 150 songs in various styles at your disposal, you'll come away knowing how to play some of your favorite tunes--regardless of whether you're using a concert piano or a MIDI keyboard.

You'll be playing in no time by following the Animated Keyboard as it displays correct finger positions while the music plays, or for any note or chord you choose. When used with a MIDI controller, the program provides specific feedback on playing mistakes, including wrong notes and rhythms. Other features include a metronome, recorder, variable-speed MIDI keyboard tracks, accompaniment tracks, and ear training exercises. You will also receive interactive performance evaluations to help you keep track of your progress.

Piano and Keyboard Method Deluxe is taught by on-screen instructors Irma Irene Justicia, M.A. and Vadim Ghin, M.M., who provide clear and friendly direction.

Over 450 step-by-step piano lessons arranged in thirty chapters across 2 tutorial programs. The lessons cover the basics, such as hand position, rhythm and playing on black keys, then move on to more advanced concepts like music notation, sight reading, intervals, chords, scales, developing manual dexterity, advanced rhythms and transitions, interpretive expression marks, the blues, improvisation, and ensemble performance.
eMedia's Animated Keyboard lets you see color-coded fingerings for all of the piano lessons, including piano chords, piano scales, and songs. See exactly how to play the song on a keyboard as you hear the music. Music tracking highlights notes or chords as they are played, making it easy to follow along.
Interactive Feedback with Note and Finger Tracker to allow the piano software to listen as you play melodies and display your playing accuracy. This tool for beginner piano instruction works with both electronic keyboards and acoustic pianos. Feedback balloons point out and correct mistakes in notes or rhythm. After you click on the balloon, the Animated Keyboard shows you the corrections. Learn to fix mistakes and read music faster. Interactive feedback works when using an electronic MIDI-compatible keyboard in Piano and Keyboard Method, and when doing selected exercises in Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method.
Interactive Performance Evaluation in the piano software highlights your playing mistakes and shows what you should have played with an overall percentage score, provided you are using a MIDI keyboard. In Piano and Keyboard Method, personalized reports show your rate of progress, including scores for specific songs, when using a MIDI keyboard.
Lessons on piano basics like how to read piano music, playing accompaniments with piano chords, piano scales, and more.
Over 120 videos for the piano lessons are included. Split-screen views with close-ups are available for many of the videos, in order to show you proper piano fingering and hand positioning. You can also view in full-screen mode. The videos are larger and the quality has been enhanced in this version, as well.
Piano lessons include easy piano songs as both audio and MIDI tracks, in which selections can be looped, slowed, or sped up. Highlight an entire page, or just a portion of a song, and loop it for playback at whatever speed you are comfortable playing. Selected loops are now introduced with the MIDI tick count-off, so there's enough time to get your hands back to the keyboard to play along. This means you can follow along regardless of what section of the piece you're working on.
Accompaniment tracks for all piano songs. Selected pieces in Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method include orchestral and jazz band accompaniment.
A digital metronome keeps you on rhythm and helps you work on speed and timing. It provides visual cues and/or audio ticks, along with a full range of tempi from largo to presto. A digital recorder helps you gauge progress and share your playing with others.
With the click of a button in Piano and Keyboard Method, you can get suggestions about which "voice" to use on your MIDI keyboard to get the best sound for the song.
Over 150 popular classical, blues, pop, and rock songs, including Billy Joel's "Piano Man," Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," Los Lobos' "La Bamba," Elton John's "Candle in the Wind," Spencer Williams's "Tishomingo Blues," and Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer," plus classical piano pieces like Franz Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody," Pyor Ilich Ychaikovsky's "Swan Lake," Paul Dukas's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," and Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and "Ecossaise."
