Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Professor of Computer Science, an artist, musician and computer software entrepreneur. I've taught at IIT in Chicago and Lewis University since the late 90s. In addition, one of my video game companies has created over 200 commercially published products.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  "Piano Prodigy is designed to combine the fun of gaming with a strong pedagogical piano method. Engaging to both children and adults, these lessons and games build content knowledge while developing and reinforcing piano skills. Upon the successful completion of the lesson book, students will have a foundation in piano skills, supported by basic music theory fundamentals, on which to build."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This product is designed to make learning Piano more accessible to many more children, and instead of getting frustrated and giving up, they will be compelled to go so much farther! The concept of Music is so very important to Math, Science and Engineering (and many other subjects), it's important to make it a pleasant experience for more children and their parents.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  As a teacher, I see the shortcomings of traditional education. In studying how the human brain learns, I've realized that "traditional education" is not the best way to train a brain. Children (and adults) learn an entirely different way. For thousands of years, older children would "apprentice" a profession. They did not sit in a chair, face forward, and listen to lectures. The modern educational system, which is only a little over 150 years old, is not natural to the way the brain learns. Children learn when they are interested, having fun, and engaged. By gamifying education, maybe we can re-awaken the fun of learning for so many more children who are frustrated by the "one size fits all" approach to education.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  For most people, education is the single most important thing that will affect every aspect of their lives. This doesn't only include income and affluence, but also intangible gifts, such as appreciation of art, music, hobbies, and passions and books you will read and people you will meet!
