[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This Illuminating Piano comes from McCarthy Music and promises to be able to turn anyone into a maestro overnight. The way it works is simple: the keys illuminate in order to identify where you need to press the keys and this then allows you to quickly learn to play the piano or just fake it in front of your friends/the pub manager in order to get a job playing the piano.
The piano has 61 full-sized keys and is a midi keyboard. The keys glow blue and pink to indicate whether you should use your left or right hand and it syncs up with a mobile app or PC so that you can learn different songs and techniques.
Of course it’s not quite as easy as that. Yes you’ll be able to fake playing music but actually one of the hardest parts of playing the piano is knowing how to quickly get your fingers into the right position. Until you’ve learned your scales and chords you aren’t going to be fooling anyone who knows what they’re doing. Or who has ears.
That said though, the gadget is still a bit of fun and handily can be used to learn those scales and chords.
