Children's Music Journey is the foremost piano and music rudiment program for elementary students that I have ever run… -Eric Allen, Primary Education Curriculum Specialist
I purchased this software for my two girls ages 4 and 7. I would sit with each of them as they progressed through the 25 piano lessons, games, practice, etc... I am convinced this is the most valuable and well-organized interactive teaching tool I have ever seen. My girls absolutely loved it and withing 6 weeks they were playing piano with both hands. As a teacher, I knew this would be a huge hit at school so we installed it in our computer lab. I never would have dreamed all 22, six year olds would learn to play piano, let alone in 45 minute "lessons" held once a week. Simply remarkable. -Parent & Teacher, Online Review
A breakthrough! A tremendous value for parents of young children. -Rafael Alcolado, Concert Pianist & President of the NS Registered Music Teachers Association
My husband and I got our three-year old Children’s Music Journey for Christmas, and we all loved it. The graphics were excellent, the characters were engaging, the games were fun, and the lessons were enjoyable. He did not want to stop. We now have a planned lesson once a week and games all the time. I do not remember my early years of piano being very enjoyable at all, but he always begs for more. The appeal of the games to young kids is the real genius of this program, since they are having so much fun that they forget that they are learning. Thank you for making piano exciting for my child. -Sarah Kennedy, Parent
Music is a very powerful stimulus to learning. We’ve seen in a number of studies that learning keyboard develops spatial reasoning skills in kids. Every child should have the benefit of the experience of some serious learning in music. The software itself is pretty comprehensive when you think about learning experiences and curriculum for music. -James Catterall, Professor of Education, UCLA
We are so happy to have CMJ for our son. Though only 3 1/2, he really enjoys it! And we are learning how to play piano too! -Theresa
It's not hard to imagine that this animated, narrated interactive software could help any child become very enthusiastic about music and about learning to play the piano. -Damian Llopis, Pro-Art Musica™
I found it all very appealing and... I enjoyed pretending to be a four again as I worked my way through the program! I bet that a lot of youngsters will enjoy using the program, without really realizing they are having ‘music lessons’. -J. Dowsett, Yamaha Club Magazine
No other program offers as engaging or as comprehensive an approach to learning the language of music. -P. Kern
The games!! They are so well illustrated and use such cute characters! The children love visiting the princess and her dog. Several are just beginning to read and want to read every word in the book, which is an extra plus. -Kathy Sparks
CMJ really relates well to kids. The program maximizes on how children learn... through multi-sensory play. Parents love it! Kids love it! And educators love it! This is the best piano teaching program available on the market today. -Janette Georges, early music educator
One of the great joys is going upstairs and just watching their faces as they are discovering and moving through the lessons. It’s been a wonderful learning experience for all of us. -Yvonne Knight, Principal, PS93, New York City
My students are enthusiastic to begin their sessions, and even the most active kids are completely engaged for the entire lesson. It’s remarkable. -Rob Collins, Elementary Music Teacher
An excellent tool to introduce children to music theory and concepts. It’s so wonderful when a child doesn’t want to leave when the lesson is up. -Mary Brown, music teacher
It is clear that children who participate in early keyboard instruction benefit in a number of ways. These children, for example, do better in math and science. Behavior and general reading levels have also been shown to improve. -D. Reardon, Principal
