Piano Booster is a new way to learn the piano just by playing a game.
It takes elements of the game Guitar Hero but now it uses a real piano
keyboard and the game has been turned sideways so the notes scroll along
a musical stave. So instead of pressing buttons on a fake guitar you end
up learning to play a real musical instrument: the piano.
To run Piano Booster you need a MIDI Piano Keyboard and a MIDI interface
for the PC. If you don't have a MIDI keyboard you can still try out
PianoBooster, using the PC keyboard ('x' is middle C), but a MIDI piano
is really recommended).
