People ask me what I think of
"Rocket Piano" -- the course produced by a young guy in Australia or New
Zealand. So here's
what I think:
pretty exciting stuff for beginners including some learning
software, some computer games, 3 books, 139 sound and video files and 4
software games. But... I wouldn't order it if
you are advanced at all. If you are a beginner, you will probably find
it very helpful in some respects, since it has all the music games and so

Here's what the author of Rocket Piano says
about the course:
"Learning to play the piano is like learning how to
speak a language. If you were learning Spanish, for instance, you would
need to listen and speak it, and the more you speak Spanish - the more you
imitate native speakers, the more fluent you'd become. The same is true if
you want to learn to play the piano. The more you listen and play with in
time with professional pianists, the more professional you will become.
That partly explains how I developed Rocket Piano - the
Ultimate Piano Learning Kit. Originally I creating three books which
contain step-by-step lessons, including numerous sound files, taking
people on a journey from beginner to advanced in their piano playing
skill, by fast-tracking their piano playing, while covering every aspect
involved in learning to play piano.
I wrote Rocket Piano because I was fed up with the quality of the piano
playing books on the market. The original Rocket Piano received many
favorable comments from people all over the world, which encouraged me to
continue developing it.
I have now taken Rocket Piano one step further, I have recorded a truck
load of song files which show you, step-by-step, how to play many popular
piano songs, and I'm adding new songs regularly. Rocket Piano also comes
with 4 exclusive computer games - Jayde Musica Pro, Chordinator,
Keycelerator and Perfect Your Pitch. By playing Chordinator and Jayde
Musica you learn how to read music, while having fun trying to get a high
score! Keycelerator helps to you learn the various piano chord key
arrangements and Perfect Your Pitch teaches you how to transcribe music by
playing another fun game!
Rocket Piano contains Step-by-step Piano Lessons (supported by video and
audio files) organized into 3 high quality books taking you on a journey
from beginner to advanced in your piano playing. These piano lessons are
awesome! They are all laid out in an easy to follow, step-by-step method
that includes 3 books, 139 sound and video files and 4 software games. My
lessons are very easy to understand no matter what age you are and I've
gone to great lengths to ensure that you find learning the piano fun!"
So I repeat: While it is
very helpful for beginners, I wouldn't recommend it if you are advanced at all.
