Play to Learn Guitar

Play to Learn Guitar

Musical Minds is a digital tutor system that aims to increase people’s motivation to learn guitar by helping users to develop their own music and then instructing on how to play it. Using a convenient sensor pad and tangible “notes,” users can create chord progressions, then transfer that song to an accompanying application which will give step-by-step directions on how to perform it with the instrument.
