Did you ever wish you had learned to play the piano? Would you like your children to learn, but want to find out if they're really interested before springing for a piano and lessons? SuperKids' teams of parent, teacher, and kid reviewers looked at four programs specifically aimed at teaching the user to play the piano, plus three other titles that focus a little more on some of the basics necessary for playing any instrument.
Please note that some of the programs also require the user to also purchase an electronic MIDI keyboard - far less expenisve than a conventional piano, but a bigger deal than "batteries not included."
Which is best for your child (or you)?
