Pulse-Assisted Piano Playing

Pulse-Assisted Piano Playing
Nicko Margolies

Concert Hands, a new product for teaching music, hopes to assist musicians struggling to learn the piano by gently guiding fingers to the correct keys with a system of finger sleeves, pulses and software.  The rather cumbersome series of wires and wrist pilots will introduce music to those that learn best through direct muscle memory.

The system uses software that converts a song file into a key combination for the piano that a controller box then distributes to the wrist and finger pilots.  The repetitive motions stimulate muscle memory and apparently work well with anyone from 8 to 80 years old who doesn’t want to learn a song through understanding music or having to hire an instructor.  For a slightly retro explanation of the “Augmental Musical Instrument Technology” check out their promotional video below:
