Physical Problems in Concrete Measurements with Soft Mozart technology.
In the Gentle Piano Module (presentations 1 to 5), the timer is the delay indicator that reflects the physical difficulties of a beginner.
If the rate of delay (in the lower right corner of the screen) is much higher than the number of notes played correctly (in the lower left corner of the screen), it means that the student’s attention is overloaded with physical problems.
What steps you have to make to prevent your child from getting frustrated?
To release attention, the following has to be done:
- Change the presentation view to the level more comfortable for the eye.
- Suggest your child to play one hand at a time
- Cut the text (down to 1 note, if necessary, in one hand).
Playing the keyboard with "weighted keys" and traditional sheet music without visual cues is the most challenging for attention, which leads to increase in time delay and higher number of mistakes. In contrast, playing synthesizer with stickers in a light key mode on level 1 of visual presentation is the least challenging.
Spending attention on physical tasks is an objective problem that can not be ignored in working with the music notation.
To avoid putting the student's attention in “frustration mode,” it is essential to watch the timer closely: the lower the number the better the result.
