Learning music in the digital age. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Millions of people grow up taking lessons in piano or guitar or other instruments… going once a week to a teacher and then heading up to practice or …sometimes not. When it comes to piano…a company called Playground Sessions…in partnership with Yamaha…is changing the game. C0-founder and CEO Chris Vance…
“We’ve combined digital innovations, like an iTunes like store where kids and adults alike can pick the songs that they want to learn, video tutorials starring David Sides, who is a YouTube sensation, and elements of gaming.”
Making it fun and affordable. A full year of online lessons…bundled with Yamaha’s full featured 76 key YPG-235 keyboard is priced at about 400 dollars. You’ll need a computer, PC or Mac, for the interactive, fun lessons. There’s more info at Playgroundsessions.com. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
