test adults training
Moreover, training the order of the piano keys and music notes will drastically develop your spacial thinking! (Do you think that you are too old for that? Think again!)
Our unique modules will help you to see music score like a pro: with your eyes, ears and muscles simultaneously.
Did you know that the music notes and the piano keys are interrelated? You don't have to learn the order of music notes away from the piano keys. This is one 'globe':
In the Soft Mozart technology responsive music notes become visual and interactive.
For the first time in the history of music education, a musical notation starts “talking” to all your senses: sight, hearing, touch, movement.
Our most advanced interactive algorithms and curriculum will bring you from 0 knowledge to advanced.
Did you manage to finish the Fruit Lines module? What is your final score?
If not, take your time. We will return to the module on the different level.
In the process of playing such ‘games’ the program not only developing your music aptitude on brain sub-cortex , but also music vision – that is the ability to focus on small objects and shift eye focus from one similar looking object to another.
In the process of ‘playing’ such ‘games’ the first complex skills are getting built: fine motor skills are getting developed in conjunction with hearing and eye-sight. We use computer keyboard keys as a prototype of piano keys that makes future challenges more gradual and smooth.
In order to make the game fully and effectively functional and beneficial for you, please pay great deal of attention to them and… be very cautious. They are very intense. I had many music educators during their Soft Mozart training sessions, who were literally groaning trying to beat the games and facing a lot of sudden challenges. Some even were happy to be smokers maybe first time in their lives (having ‘excuses’ to take a break and let their minds to cool off was nice then)

With #softmozart technology you can adjust music notation to your eye-sight for different purposes.
I. Difference between visual presentations of the music text:
a) 1-3 visual presentations with notes names
b) 2-4-5-6 with no notes' names inside each note.
Use the sheet music visual changes according to your level of visual perception and purpose of your learning.
The mode transformation uses exactly the same approach in teaching to read books from ABC and picture books to novels.
The score is helping you to see amount of your mistakes and time delays in precise numbers.
Simple rule to know the difference between 1-3 and 2-4-5-6 is:
The more visual help you have - the less stress you experience on your muscles.
Your muscles will be more relaxed, when your eyes won't have to work hard looking for each note:
The opportunity to see the name of each note and find its counterpart easily on the piano keys allows you to pay more attention to your muscles.
The presentation of a music text without the opportunity to see note names claims your attention while you are counting lines and spaces and promotes your eye-sight to read music notation.
As a rule the piano pieces for sight-reading should be easier for coordination.
Visual perception requires a lot of energy to be able to orient in these lines and spaces. That's why, presenting the music sheet on the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th times must be simple so it will help your coordination. The development of a visual skill must be well trained.
Very often many beginners try to get away from a vertical mode as soon as possible.
You shouldn't do that because the unification of each line and space with each corresponding piano key must be imprinted in your mind very well. In the close future it will help you to sight-read music notation easily on the fly
How fast should you move from vertical to horizontal and especially 'traditional' visual mode?
If you have little to 0 mistakes and your time bar on the right bottom corner is close to 0, you can challenge yourself and try more advanced visual mode of the music text.
As you noticed, we listed the Nursery Primer 0 as the first Album for this purpose. In this album, there is a monophonic tune, which passes the melody from one hand to the other.
You sight-reading using separate hands. When you play the album using only the right or left hand, you learn quickly where a note sheet passes from one hand to another. If you accidentally play the "wrong" hand’s part, the system will stops you from proceeding.
Make no more than 3-5 mistakes. Time delay (bottom right score) should be less than amount notes played. After that proceed to playing using both hands.
It's important, during sight-reading, to read a few pieces without stopping and polishing mistakes so you won't be able to memorize the text.
The quantity is important not the quality in the playing pieces and you should focus on decreasing the number of mistakes, while not worrying about artistic quality just yet.
You can even set a goal to play one or another album using either the right or the left hand and not make more than 3-2-1 mistakes. The goal is to be able to sight-read with as less mistakes as possible without memorizing your pieces.
Passing from the 2nd to the 4th, and then to the 5th and the 6th visual presentations must be gradual. This gradual approach must be provided by you. You should be the one to decide when to move on to more challenging pieces.
Some students try to pass to the 6th presentation as soon as possible. However we recommend to move slowly: the goal of your practice is to make personal progress, not to arrive at level 6 as quickly as possible.
Learning the piano without music literacy. What is it?
If you had been given milk poured into a cat bowl and was suggested to lap on all fours from this bowl, you would have been offended and sued someone for humiliation and insult.
But the fact that you are turned into a thoughtless animal that should blindly chase colorful balls or worms crawling on the screen does not bother you?
“And what is wrong with my playing by colors, lights or moving stripes?” you may ask. I am enjoying learning a tune!
Everything is absolutely wrong with this. In order for you to catch a fish, at least you must be taught to see how it looks.
You should clearly see the note-key, hear its sound and see how the duration develops in real time simultaneously while interacting with the note through the touch of your own fingers.
Only in this way do you learn to focus on the music notation.
Based on this alone, you are able to concentrate your attention and develop the ability to read musical notes from elementary to complex stages.
