Classroom Maestro: Awards & Testimonials
Classroom Maestro is, without a doubt, one of the most valuable software apps that I've used in the past 8 years of my teaching. In my group piano classes, the pace is much quicker, students are noticeably more engaged in the lesson content, and they consistently remark that visualizing what I'm playing in real time on the keyboard and staff keeps them on task.
While Classroom Maestro may not have been originally conceived as an online teaching tool, it works perfectly in long-distance teaching scenarios. Whether I use it as a plugin with Internet MIDI or screen-sharing in real-time video conference lessons, or capture it with screen recording software for video tutorials, Classroom Maestro brings online music lessons to a whole new level.

Throw away your flashcards! Here is an indispensable tool for developing a creative, imaginative and powerful approach to the study of notes, intervals, chords, scales, note sequences, progressions – you name it. But words do not do it justice, you have to see it for yourself.
Ingeniously designed and user-friendly, Classroom Maestro is a must for the creative teacher. Originally intended for classroom use, as the title suggests, do not be misled: it is most suitable for individual instruction.

Classroom maestro is the quintessential software program for piano and theory classes! When coupled with an interactive white board, projector, or Remote Desktop in a classroom full of computers, it provides an irreplaceable tool to show scales, chords, patterns, intervals, and so much more.
When used with ScreenFlow or Camtasia, I can record training videos for my students that show exactly what I am playing in real time, superimposed with a video of my playing. I can’t live without it!
