Learn to Play by Playing

With Songs2See learning an instrument will be like child play. The software takes the concept of music video games to the next level. It uses real musical instruments instead of video game controllers. Users can choose any song title from their own music collection, use the software to create training material and practice with their own instrument. This motivates and improves both musical knowledge and motor skills – instead of the mere memorizing of key combinations on a video game controller.

Playful Learning Support

Songs2See detects and displays the played notes in real-time, compares them with the notes of the training material, and gives immediate visual feedback to the user. In this way, motivation remains constant over a longer period of time. With an integrated “Learning Mode” Songs2See allows playful, step by step training of the user’s favorite songs.

Individualized Training Material

With the Songs2See Editor, any song can be automatically transformed into practice material. Users can put together a personal exercise with their favorite songs in a few steps. Thus, learning a musical instrument is easier and more entertaining.

Any Instrument Can Be Used

Whether guitar, piano, saxophone, vocals or any of the supported instruments – the exercise material can be used with any instrument. There is no need to buy expensive and complicated hardware. A simple computer microphone to capture the user’s performance is the only thing needed.

Uncomplicated Usage and Care

The Songs2See Game is available as a web-service. This simplifies care and maintenance of the software as well as allowing uncomplicated usage and integration on different websites. The Songs2See Game is available for any operating system and can also be used offline.
