Let’s play some music!

As well as being a whole lot of fun, Melodics is a powerful tool for music education. By bringing the motivational psychology from gaming to learning to play an instrument, Melodics helps to establish the importance of practice and repetition with musicians of all levels.

By incorporating musical concepts from the first lesson, while setting those concepts within styles and genres interesting to the student, Melodics can be much more engaging than traditional techniques. The best way to learn is to do; the best way to improve is to do over and over. By incorporating motivation and engagement techniques more commonly found in the world of gaming - and by being a blast to use - Melodics captures and holds students attention, and makes setting exercises and practice routines easy for the educator (although you may have to hide the pad controllers while lecturing!)

We realized early in development how useful Melodics could be to educators, so we brought in David Lines, Associate Professor of Music Education and Deputy Head of the School of Music, University of Auckland, to consult on the application and it's content…

Learning to play any instrument requires a variety of skills. Rhythm, coordination of hands and fingers, understanding of time signatures, use of attack and sustain, the list goes on. Pad controllers are a great way to build these skills. – David Lines, Associate Professor of Music Education at the School of Music, University of Auckland

Melodics lessons are typically authored to meet two primary goals:

  1. Teach the user something,
  2. Get their head nodding while they learn.

Lessons cover everything from rhythmic rudiments and fundamentals, up to more advanced concepts like hand & finger independence, syncopation, polyrhythms, and arpeggios. Every lesson is tagged with the concepts it covers, allowing you to easily select appropriate lessons to set as exercises for your students.

Our grading & leveling system ensures students are working at their appropriate skill level, and with 150+ lessons (with more being published every week) there's enough content to cater to all programs and tastes.

In my first few sessions with the software I became better at finger drumming and had so much fun learning. Some people say I’m good at this – Melodics showed me that I’ve still got a lot to learn. Really dope. – Eskei83, 2014 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion, Melodics Artist
