(beginner skill level)
Lead your personal orchestra with 22 Christmas songs from “American Popular Piano,” published by Novus Via Music Group – including “Deck the Halls,” “Jingle Bells,” and many more. Just connect a MIDI keyboard using a suitable connector kit (visit www.zenph.com/ipad for details) or play along with your acoustic piano and dazzle your audience with your piano skills.
This app is powered by Zenph’s Home Concert Xtreme (HCX). When used with a MIDI keyboard, HCX responds to your playing by following your timing, tempo, and volume, giving you your own accompanist, rehearsal tool, and music tutor. Use the in-app documentation to explore our extensive feature list.
This Special Christmas Edition works only with these Novus Via MIDI files. Search for ‘Home Concert’ on the App Store or visit www.zenph.com/ipad for information on the full-function version of award-winning HCX.
Novus Via Music’s “American Popular Piano” revives a 250-year old tradition, using music in popular styles to enhance students’ enjoyment and success. Popular styles. Traditional skills.
The app includes the following Christmas songs:
HCX works in three ways:
• LEARN: waits for you to play the right note.
• JAM: plays the accompaniment and you have to keep up. Use this with an acoustic piano, for example.
• PERFORM: follows your tempo and jumps to another part of the piece if you jump.
In all three, HCX tracks your dynamics and adjusts the loudness of the accompaniment as you play.
• track mixer
• single button for muting all accompaniment tracks
• on-screen keyboard display that shows the correct note in Learn mode
