Join us Friday, August 9 (10am – 12:30pm) at Riverton Piano Company Peoria for a life-changing workshop with Sean Slade from Piano Marvel.  Sean will help you discover a technological tool that will not only help to quantify your students’ sight reading skills, but help IMPROVE them as they practice with interactive software over time.  Piano Marvel is an APP for iOS, MacOS and Windows that uses advanced MIDI technology to compare a student’s performance with the notes and rhythms of a given piece.  In short, this is the world’s first interactive, standardized sight reading assessment tool!  …and that’s not all!  Piano Marvel includes pop music with full band accompaniment, standard classical repertoire and the entire Alfred Basic Piano library!  There’s so much to unpack and – in this hands-on workshop – you’ll learn how to:

  • Clearly Define Your Students’ Sight Reading Levels
  • Motive Your Students to Practice Sight Reading at Home
  • Create Fun Challenges That Reward Improvement
  • Track Your Students’ Progress Throughout the Week
  • Quickly Build Skilled Sight Readers WITHOUT Sacrificing a Ton of Lesson Time!
  • Make Sight Reading FUN!

Even better, this program will also function as the World-wide debut of Piano Marvel’s NEW Bluetooth APP!  Now, you can quickly and easily connect the software to your Bluetooth MIDI piano without all the mess and setup of a wired connection.  It’s quick, it’s clean and it’s easier than ever!

Come explore this innovative approach to sight reading with us and you WILL marvel at how fun learning to sight read can be!  …and – if that’s not enough – come hungry because we’re having a (free) light lunch after the program!

R.S.V.P. before August 1 by calling (480) 905-8888 or email Gary Gordon at  We look forward to seeing you in Peoria!
