Imagine if you started playing songs you know and love, you got real-time feedback with every note played, you had a cool music teacher, you had scores to beat and could see your progress, and you could share your performances and compete against your friends. Now you can!
Play To Learn™, the revolutionary new method for learning the piano. It makes learning as fun as playing and gets you playing right away.
As you might expect, the Play To Learn Methodology is all about playing: Playing songs you know and love. Playing them right away. And playing that’s fun, in an immersive environment of interaction and competition.
The “traditional” approach of learning, practicing scales, playing old songs you don’t like and processing music theory just doesn’t work for most of us, nor should it. Play To Learn™ is a refreshing approach - no longer do we have to try so hard to learn to play piano; we can finally just play to learn.
If you love listening to music, then you already know more music theory than you think you do. This is why Playground takes popular songs you’re familiar with and uses their beats, rhythms and lyrics to demonstrate musical principles as you go. Find your way around the keyboard with with “Apologize,” master rhythm with “Because of You” or learn to read notation through “Imagine.”
Play To Learn™ was developed by music professors Alex Ness and Dr. Byron Adams along with the legendary Quincy Jones and widely acclaimed pianist David Sides, and consultation from NYU’s highly esteemed Games For Learning Institute.
