Hi, I'm 64 years old Korean man, never gone through proper musical education. And, not quite fluent English speaker.
In mid-January, I read a review about Musiah written by Sungchan Park who lives in Melbourne. It was about an introduction of Musiah and how he started.
I was quite interested in Musiah Online Piano lesson. But it was not an easy decision to me. Because, once I start, I might invest a lot of time and effort. So I decide to go through the 14 days free trial.
I want to figure out if the online-lesson is worth and helpful for my piano skill.
I met a little problem to connect MIDI and PC correctly at first. It wasn't easy job for me even if the Musiah website gives a lot of help info.
User interface and interaction with online lesson weren't familiar to me. Maybe I didn't understand the voice instruction or didn't have much experience of play on piano or click on screen...etc.
I found some help from the online forum of Korean digital piano user. So, I could start the Musiah lesson properly since 18 Jan.
The level 1 is made up of total 19 lessons. Until lesson 13, they are easy and interesting, so I could pass couple of lessons in a day. But, from lesson 14, it seemed getting difficult and took long hours to complete each lesson.
Another hard part is that the Musiah was designed for English speaker, lead in English. Well, there are a lot of people attend English Language school out there in Korea. Musiah could help me to improve my English too I thought.. I try to accept the language barrier positively.
In time, I could understand the voice teaching without too much problem while there are not much of academic or technical terms.
The last day of the free trial, I couldn't complete Level 1 (19 lessons) during the 14 days. However, It was enough time to figure out some pros and cons to me. I decided to signup 1 year with $199.99
I want to describe some pros that I experienced from the Musiah during my first month:
