eMedia Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method v2 is a comprehensive music experience. In over 150 full-screen lessons, it teaches you to improve your playing, gain control of the keyboard, and develop your musicianship. You'll learn to play pieces by famous composers in a broad range of musical styles, from Baroque to the present. You will also develop your musical creativity by learning how to improvise. Alongside conventional scales, chord progressions and finger techniques, you will learn the blues form, scales and patterns needed to create your own improvisations and songs.

Vadim Ghin, author of the innovative eMedia Intermediate Piano and Keyboard Method, holds a Master of Music Degree in Piano from the Juilliard School and has taught extensively at Juilliard, New York University, and the Manhattan School of Music, among others.

Learn songs and exercises from either the music notation or an animated keyboard that displays fingerings in-time with the music. Songs and exercises are enhanced by live recorded audio, variable-speed MIDI keyboard tracks and colorful MIDI accompaniments. Selected pieces include orchestral accompaniment and even a jazz band to play along with. You will learn from over 50 popular songs, including classics from artists such as Beethoven, Chopin and Irving Berlin.

Interactive review and ear training screens help reinforce new concepts and develop your ear. Selected exercises offer instant feedback on your playing, both with acoustic pianos or electronic keyboards. When used with an electronic MIDI keyboard, you can even get specific feedback on mistakes made while playing those selected exercises, including wrong notes and rhythms. Other accessories include a built-in digital metronome and recorder.
