Title: SYSTEM FOR INSTRUCTING THE PLAYING OF A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
Abstract:
The present invention discloses a novel method and apparatus for instructing a student how to play a musical instrument. The method includes providing a display device (16), displaying a staff (34, 36) on the display device, displaying an image (38) on the display device, and instructing the student to focus on the image while preferably using a musical instrument (20) to play the notes on the staff, wherein the image moves generally in the direction of the progression of notes on the staff while the student attempts to play the notes with the musical instrument. As the image moves, the image preferably moves in a direction generally parallel to the staff.
