Piano Wizard for Mac

Allegro Rainbow has released Piano Wizard for Mac, a new video game that teaches anyone to play the piano within minutes. Piano Wizard (Easy Mode and Premier) will now be offered with a dual-boot installation CD that will run on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. Piano Wizard teaches how to play songs through a simple video game method. "First, players follow vertically moving game objects as a guide for hitting the right notes. It then progresses by rotating the video screen, making game objects travel horizontally, thus mimicking the lines of the staff and providing insight into musical theory. Next, game objects transform into colored notes on the grand staff, then finally into traditional black & white notation." Pricing for the "Easy" software and USB/MIDI cable is $70, while Premier version is $140. Other combinations are available with various types of keyboards, including a package for small children (no PC required) for $80.
