Music Teacher Alexa Skill
Are you interested in learning how to play the piano? This skill will build up the skills for any novice looking to get started.
Level 1 - Free Music Lessons!
Say "Teach Me a Music Lesson" and your Alexa will walk you through basics of hand position, and how to get started playing the musical scale.
Level 2 - Basic Note Recognition
Say "Start Beginner Note Drill" and you can then get your hands set, then practice hearing individual notes, and trying to find them on a keyboard. This is the first step towards understanding music.
Level 3 - Learn your first Song
Once you understand the notes, start with a basic song. Say "Teach Me Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and the skill will walk through each note required to play.
Level 4 - Play a Duet with Alexa
Once you have mastered the sections, see if you can play the entire song along with Alexa in a duet. Just say "Duet for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and see if you can keep up and play all of the notes.
Music Teacher can currently teach you more than a dozen different songs. For a complete list, say "List Available Songs" and it will provide the full list.
