Rocket Piano Review
- Rocket Piano Download
- Rocket Piano Official Site
Rocket Piano is a series of eBooks, games and MP3 files that you can download if you pay a fee and become a member. The eBooks cover everything you could ever want to know about playing the piano. The eBooks offer instruction for beginners, advanced play, finger techniques and exercises, music notation, techniques to optimize your learning, as well as lessons on how to play gospel and jazz music.
Some of the lessons have audio recording but they do not have a video or an animated keyboard. The videos that are included are not songs, but a view from over the shoulders of a player demonstrating a specific technique. The well-designed games included cover chord identification, sight-reading, and pitch recognition. Rocket Piano only offers email support but their response was quick and helpful.
Despite the great lesson material Rocket Piano offers, the product lacks some key features. It does not include the ability to progress tracking and cannot give feedback on performances. It is not compatible with a keyboard or other MIDI device and does not have a recording station.
The Good Point
Rocket Piano really does an amazing job at teaching you to play piano like a professional. If you have never even touched a piano before, no problem. It starts out as basic as showing you how to sit properly at a piano; and by the end of the first six lessons, you will already be playing a song.
The amount of detail truly puts Rocket Piano above the rest of the competition. Everything is explained very thoroughly and they are sure not to teach over your head. The amount of content available is amazing. You can learn from simple online lessons, download the multiple e-books, listen to tons of audio lessons, play with the jam along tracks, and even watch video lessons. The multiple types of lessons help to suit every single learning style out there.
The Bad Point
There were not many cons really. Although they were not near as bad as most sites, there were still a few ads here and there in the members area trying to get user to upgrade. Even if the deal is great, I would rather not have to mess with the ads being in the way.
The bottom line is that Rocket Piano is made by professionals, to turn more people into professionals. It has a wealth of great material that will really help you learn how to play the piano.
Once you understand how the e-book and corresponding audio works, you will have a better feel for how long each lesson might take you. For those serious about learning the piano and for those who like to learn using a variety of methods and material, Rocket Piano is definitely the answer.
