Instant Feedback and Interactive Evaluation Feedback
For selected exercises, Instant Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes as you progress through a melody. Your computer will listen as you play, and highlight correctly played notes in green. This works for both acoustic pianos and electronic keyboards. When using an electronic MIDI-compatible keyboard with selected exercises, you can get specific feedback on note and rhythm mistakes. Clicking on an individual feedback balloon brings up a keyboard showing you exactly what mistake was made and what should have been played. Also, an overall percentage score summarizes how well you did on the exercise.
