Play up to 4 people together. You can get a band if you want. The game plays backing tracks and speed is adjusted to your skill level.
In this game you can unlock short sections of songs, around 20 seconds, by playing 80% correct. It starts easy and gets harder as you get better at your instrument. You can unlock them together as a band. Finally become an InstrumentChamp. With in-app purchase of PREMIUM, you can also play the premium levels (inner curves) of the career.
Install the program and start play songs. For GUITAR, saxophone and trumpet, the computer microphone is used to hear if you play right. Digital PIANO and digital DRUMS is connected to the USB. If you do not have any instruments you can play with the computer keyboard. Read more here.
Have a look at how it works, in the manual.
As a saxophone beginner, I could play 3 songs within an hour. /Mike

Get started to play beautiful music – together
We want to say a big thank you to Nicholas Piegdon, who created Piano Hero.
It was the base for the initial functions of this game.
You can play along using any piano. When you play with an acoustic piano (currently in beta), the microphone is used to pickup how you play. When you play with a digital piano (recommended), it is connected to the computer.
Bass, snare and hi-hat is the most common drums in rock and pop beats. Crash (C) is the left cymbal. Ride (R) is the right cymbal. And then you have Tom 1-3. Read more here.
Saxophone is a beautiful instrument, both visually and to play. You can buy one here. Since it has one main button for each finger, it was much easier than I thought to learn to play. In 2 hours I could play 2 songs.
Trumpet is a really classic instrument.
You can also play using your computer keyboard:
Remember to go to settings and turn “piano sound” or “drum sound” to turn the computer sound on for these instruments.
You start in a career mode. It has 150 short sections of songs, usually 20-30 seconds. When you play the Level with 80% accuracy, you unlock them and can continue to next. You can get more stars by playing even better accuracy. First section has low tempo (around 30%), but as you come further the tempo increases.
The inner curve has extra interesting Levels, but is only available for premium paying users. You can continue for free using the outer curve Levels. When you have completed the first 8 Levels it is time for Celebration, as you unlock next Chapter. If you are a parent, make this something special 🙂
When you unlock Chapters you are introduced to new challenges. For example for piano, half through the levels, you need to play the base notes with your left hand at the same time as playing the melody with your right hand.
Some Levels are pre-programmed, but some are populated at install-time by the midi files that exists on your computer.
As recommended by Suzuki methodology, you will notice that some Levels feel similar. The may be repeated in a higher tempo, or merged together with other sections of the song. Eventually you will play the whole song in 100% tempo.
As you play songs in InstrumentChamp you gradually increase your user status, to finally become an InstrumentChamp.
When you have completed the career, or pay Premium, you unlock the possibility to just play any song.
To navigate through the menues of the game you can use:
You get more points if you play at harder skill level. If you succeed with many notes in a row you get points multiplier, which is zeroed at the first misstake.
Level overview 1. Click to play a section. If the players score more than 80% then next section is unlocked and you get one star. 90% give 2 stars and 95% gives 3 stars. First two sections are from the chorus and next two are from the verse. Finally the whole song are unlocked and can be played in full- speed.
You can click the inspiration-button to see inspirational video clips (requires Internet connection). The guitar player can practice the chord grips of the song before it starts. See the all time total score for each player.
Play the song by playing notes or chords when they reach the hitline. Listen to the background music. The better timing you have the better score you get. Due to system differences, you may need to adjust with F1 and F2 (moving notes up or down) to get your computer to show the notes at right timing.
Note that you can change speed during a song with the left and right arrows. You can also zoom in or out using arrows up or down, to see less but longer notes.
When you have finished a song you see the score and get your result worldwide, overall, and per instrument. When you are proud of your results, you can share them using the Facebook-button.
When you play you can press Space to pause. Then you see what functions you can use.
F1/F2 Synchronize the sound, forward / back.
F4 Repeat last 10 seconds.
F5 Loop last 10 seconds until team has 80% correct on original speed. If you fail, tempo is decreased.
With this mode on, the song starts at the set initial song speed. When you play below the set accuracy it repeats the last set of notes in a lower tempo. If you still cant make it, you get even lower tempo. Until you make it. Then you gradually repeat it until you reach the full initial speed again.
Then it continues the same song where you were, until you start play below the required accuracy, where the repeat process starts again.
With this method, a song or classical piece, can be mastered in a fast way.
When you activate orchestra mode, then note indicators are shown for all instruments. Then you can play with any instruments you like.
By buying premium you can play any song and get much more functionality.
