Psychologists and educators have long recognised the impact of music tutoring on children’s intellectual and emotional development.  Piano tutoring in specific can improve a student’s dexterity, coordination, self-esteem, abstract reasoning, creative abilities and personal expression.  However, the cost of music tutoring can be substantial, which denies a huge number of children these benefits.

Technology based education is used successfully in various academic subjects.  Online tutoring can reach children anywhere in the world regardless of household income.  However, piano theory must be put into practice.  The ideal e-Learning solution would involve an engaging environment, which would be interacted with using a tangible input device such as an electronic keyboard.  This project aims to create an online application, which will encourage and teach children the fundamentals of piano playing and music theory.  The child will not only be able to interact with the application using a virtual on-screen piano, but also an external USB Musical Instrument Device Interface (MIDI) keyboard.  This will provide the user with a physical simulation of a genuine piano.
