Vadim Ghin, M.M.

Author of the innovative eMedia Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method CD-ROM, holds a Masters Degree in Piano from the Julliard School of Music, and has taught extensively at Juilliard, New York University, and the Manhattan School of Music.

Full Motion Video

Professional piano instructor Vadim Ghin, M.A., guides you with over 50 full-motion videos demonstrating techniques. Many of the videos include split-screen displays with close-ups for a clearer perspective.

Song Highlighting and Looping

Highlight an entire page, or just a portion of a song, and loop it for playback at whatever speed you are comfortable playing. Selected loops are now introduced with the MIDI tick count-off, so there’s enough time to get your hands back to the keyboard to play along; thus, you can follow along regardless of what section of the piece you’re working on.

Animated Fretboard

Displays color-coded fingerings as the music plays. It allows you to see exactly how to play the song on a keyboard as you hear the music. Music tracking highlights the notes being played on the screen, making it simple to follow along.

High-quality, live recorded audio

High-quality, live recorded audio is included for every song and exercise.

Variable-speed MIDI

Slows down the audio to any tempo, while the Animated Keyboard shows song fingering as the music plays. You can play along and learn at the pace best suited to your skill level!

MIDI playback options let you select left or right hand only, or a tick metronome track to play along with. Colorful variable-speed MIDI accompaniments are also available and can be fun to play along with!

Interactive Feedback

For selected exercises, when using an electronic MIDI-compatible keyboard, you can get specific feedback on note and rhythm mistakes. Clicking on an individual feedback balloon brings up a keyboard showing you exactly what mistake was made and what should have been played. Also, an overall percentage score summarizes how well you did on the exercise.

Reviews and Ear Training

Interactive review and ear training screens help reinforce new concepts and develop your ear.

Orchestral Accompaniment

Selected pieces include orchestral accompaniment and even a jazz band to play along with.

Digital Metronome

Allows you to set your own tempo and work on your speed, rhythm and timing. Provides both visual cue and/or audio tick. Full range of tempi, from largo to presto.

Digital Recorder

Record and play yourself back! This feature allows you to compare your recordings with the instructor's version, fine tune your skills and share your recordings with friends and family.
