As a homeschooling mom, one of the things I enjoy the most is searching to find the best programs to help my children learn. I found a winner with this piano program. Simply Music is a lot different then traditional piano lessons. Rather than learning to read music before playing, my kids are playing the music and then that will translate into learning to read it later. They have learned so much more in the 10 months that they have been taking lessons then I learned in the 6 years I took traditional lessons. They can play any chord, accompany someone else, transpose their accompaniment (yes, you heard me - transpose!!!! I know, I couldn't believe it either), change a major chord to minor, compose or arrange their own music, and the list goes on and on. They already know a least 50 pieces from memory that they can just sit down and play anytime they want. They are learning the artistry of playing music before learning the nuts and bolts of it. And the best part is that I get to learn it all with my kids. Love it!!!
