Synthesia Review

Fernando Ortega
A fun way to learn how to play the piano
A review of Synthesia by Fernando Ortega

If you've ever wanted to easily learn how to play the piano, Synthesia is perhaps one of the easiest ways to help you do that. Using it is simple! Find your favourite midi files from the web and plug them in to Synthesia. The program will play back the instruments from the midi file and show you how to play them.

Using Sythesia to learn playing piano is pretty great because it allows you to go at your own speed and choose your own music. Sometimes finding the right midi file can be a pain, because often they contain too many instruments or the wrong keys. With that said, you can choose which instruments will be played and it will show you a preview of what keys should be pressed.

Plug in your Yamaha and place it infront of your computer screen, put your computer on mute and watch how the track is played. Start it off slow and gradually move up as you learn the notes and chords being played. Little previous knowledge on playing the piano is recommended, but definitely not required: it just may take a little bit longer.

Happy learning!
