Melodics, a learning app platform that plays keys, pads, and drum lessons by syncing your playing with piano-style auto-scrolling lessons – think Guitar Hero, but with real instruments – has added a list of hit songs to its offering.
The system already offered graduated lessons ranging from entry level to advanced exercises and songs, but now you can master hits from Queen, Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, Dr. Dre, Olivia Rodrigo, Paramore, Tame Impala, Silksonic, and more. .
Live performance feedback is provided by notes changing color to reflect timing – green for correct timing, while red notes signify missed notes.
General lessons work by scoring your efforts against lessons that are initially broken down into components before testing you on entire songs in performance mode. If you pass the test, more advanced exercises and lessons are unlocked.
Lessons are graded from 1 to 14 (beginner to ‘pro’ level) and progressing through the program covers all the fundamentals you need, while training muscle memory and dexterity.
You can learn at your own pace, but the gamification elements are designed to not only make each lesson fun, but also provide you with that essential motivation to progress.
“Many aspiring musicians give up on learning an instrument because what they’re learning just isn’t relevant, it’s not the music they actually enjoy,” says Sam Gribben, Founder and CEO by Melodics. “Melodics transforms users from musical learners to performers, changing the world of music education.
“The playful program encourages habitual and enjoyable practice. You won’t find this level of conservation and attention to production anywhere else.”
The system has been around for a while, but now the addition of these hit songs, alongside the existing largely genre-based exercises, should make it even more accessible.
“Our team at Melodics curates a curated selection of well-known and loved hits, but also the deep cuts most requested by musicians,” says Rodi Kirk, Director of Product and Education at Melodics. “We believe in learning by doing. You’re playing real music from day one, with instant performance feedback on iconic tracks and world-class sound design.”
