In Brief

The DODEKA keyboard not only presents an easier to play model, but also a new way of writing music

Always wanted to learn an instrument but deterred by the ominous difficulty of starting from scratch. Well, thanks to DODEKA, the process is now as simple as “doh reh mi” with its new notation system and keyboard.

Designed to make learning the piano as easy as possible, the keyboard is easier to read by getting rid of sharps and flats and changing the black half-length keys into full length keys. Otherwise, the notes and the songs sound the same. DODEKA’s Kickstarter has earned over $19,000 of their $53,000 goal. For those looking to get their hands on a keyboard of their own, its priced at $1,267 or $396 for a xylophone version.
