The trouble with the traditional way of learning to play the keyboard…
The majority of people learning to play the piano or keyboard will give up within their first year. There are three main reasons why people quit:
They don’t have the time or patience to practice consistently.
Too much practice is required to see progress. Practice becomes boring and repetitive, and it becomes easier to just stop.
They don’t connect with the music they’re playing.
If you don’t love the music you’re practicing, it isn’t fun! Nursery rhymes and classical music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
They get overwhelmed and confused by it all.
There is a tonne of information out there – but not all of it is relevant to you and what you’re specifically trying to achieve.

FAQs - Honest answers to the most common questions about Melodics.
Is this really an effective way to learn the keys?
Our approach to music education is this - confidence is key: positive reinforcement and building good habits around practice creates a really powerful feedback loop. A simple but really powerful idea here is that greatness isn’t born, it’s grown.
The word practice, can leave a bad taste in your mouth, at least as it’s used musically. It raises images of endless scales and aching hands trying to get the fingering right for an CMaj7♯11 chord on the guitar.
For many of us - brought up on hip hop / techno / jungle / EDM / a million other micro-genres, that approach doesn’t fit with what we feel in the music. The energy. The fun.
However – practicing by repeating something over again is still the best way to improve, and that’s as true of learning to play music as it is anything else.
So with Melodics™ we make your practice fun using motivational mechanics and practice goals.
But don’t take our word for it, check out what some of our happy customers are saying here.
Will Melodics teach me to read music?
