What reviewers are saying...

New York Times logo “eMedia Music’s instrument training programs are complete.”
The New York Times, March 13, 2019

“One of the best experiences I’ve ever had with piano... I would eagerly recommend eMedia’s Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method.”
HomeschoolBuzz.com

What customers are saying...

“Excellent! Great instructions from teacher as to how to play the pieces.”
– Nick McConnell of Marcola, OR

“Love it.”
– Fermin Abril of Bellmore, NY

“Most beginner piano instruction is geared toward children, but as an older guy wanting to finally get serious about learning, it was a little more difficult finding a suitable instruction suite. I’ve found this method to be just what I needed.”
– Rob Turgeon

“Excellent training... I’ve used both beginner and intermediate.”
– John Amenta of Idaho Falls, ID

“Great intermediate method. My son is on lesson 58. No personal teacher ever. Amazed by this technology.”
– Joel of Hillsboro

“Excellent overall progression through the lessons. Teaching points are helpful and well placed. Would appreciate a higher proportion of interactive pieces to confirm correct note playing and provide automatic page turning.”
– William Jones of Bedford, Quebec

“In spite the difficulty of having to deal with notes names (A-G) instead of Do-Re-Mi... I use only this Method. I find it extremely interesting and well organized. I miss the interactive feedback and page turning of the basic method but I understand.”
– Javier Garcia Monedero of Mexico City

Macintosh®:

macOS 10.5 to 10.14 *
CD-ROM or Download

(Internet connection recommended for online activation.)

* Attention Mac Users Beginning with macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple has eliminated the option to run 32-bit apps on the Mac. If you wish to continue using our applications, which currently require 32-bit support, do not upgrade your operating system past Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave). Alternatively, you can retain an older Mac operating system on a separate drive partition. eMedia developers are currently working on software updates to support Catalina and future versions of macOS, but this is a major undertaking. We are currently unable to foresee how long it will take us to create these new versions. If you purchased your eMedia Mac software on or after September 7, 2019, upon receiving proof of purchase we will provide you with a free upgrade to a macOS 10.15 (Catalina)-compatible version of an eMedia application when it becomes available. All other registered owners of eMedia software will be qualified for discounted upgrades.
