Dad Reviews Children’s Music Journey Series

28 April 2010 No Comment

We truly love hearing from our customers. Recently, a father of two boys, 4 and 7, emailed our Sales Manager, Ed, with his impressions of Children’s Music Journey. Plus, check out the before and after pics of his DIY piano/computer below. Very, very cool….

Ed,

Early last month you and I spoke on the phone and emailed back and forth a few times. I ordered Children’s Music Journey 1, 2, and 3, and you (very kindly, I might add—thank you) also sent along the workbook.

The package I ordered arrived within a few days. My boys, aged 4 and 7, were delighted to try it out for the first time…….. and the second……… and are still delighting in it almost every day. My 7-yr-old is up to lesson 22, and is thrilled to have had several different “teachers” along the way. While, at first, I sat with him through all interaction with the software, I now sit with him for the lessons, and then circulate nearby while he does the games, and practices with Miss Melody, and the improv. He loves all aspects, most of the time, and is thrilled to be able to play Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. He and I both are looking forward to moving to the second CD shortly.

My 4-yr-old does one or two lessons a week, and is also having great fun. He will proudly declare that he is up to Lesson 8, and we let him take a lesson whenever he asks.

I have found that the software works very well, and is engaging for the boys. Material is presented at a good pace, and repeated often, so that new material is manageable for the boys. And the games are such a good tool! The boys are having so much fun they don’t realize that they are practicing at the same time.

I mentioned to you that I have “gutted” a century-old upright Gerhard Heintzman Piano, and installed a computer, flat screen TV, Nintendo Wii System, Sound System with Sub-Woofer (hooked to the Piano to give depth and feel to the bass notes) and an 88-key Casio Privia Midi Keyboard. I have attached several photos, just for fun (I am proud of this little project).

We could not be more delighted with your company, my interactions with you personally, Ed, and your whole software instruction system. So, I would like to order the Piano Suite Premiere for myself as well, please.

Thank you again, and cheers,

Barry
