With less than 12 hours until its Indiegogo campaign comes to an end, smart piano and light keyboard, the ONE, has successfully raised over $300,000 thanks to nearly 850 backers.
The ONE is self-dubbed as “the fastest and most affordable way to learn pop songs and classical pieces on the piano.” It is a keyboard that will teach users how to play the instrument in just 5 minutes by working with smartphones or tablets. The upright piano is equipped with 88 keys, 3 pedals, the classic body and comes in two colors. The light keyboard has 61 led light up keys, AUX output, MP3 speakers and comes in two colors as well.
The ONE’s advantages include:
- Cost-Effective: A great way to learn music without spending thousands of dollars on lessons.
- Real Instruments: No video game controls or toy substitutes to replace the normal piano experience.
- Apple MFi-Certified: Considered the “world’s first” MFi-certified smart piano.
- Music Lessons & Games: Users can browse video lessons, interactive LED-guided sheet music and games.
“There are thousands of sheet music pieces to choose from. Learn specific songs from HDPiano’s section of songs, such as Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ or ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth. Or, if you want to get back to the basics, pull up the lesson plan from Joseph Hoffman and get started with the fundamentals.”
Clearing the air in regards to The ONE replacing music teachers, the keyboard’s team noted:
“There will always be value in customized education from a teacher. We do not intend to replace individualized advice by expert piano teaches. Instead, we aim to support musicians without initial sight-reading knowledge in faster learning and playing. We focus on developing basic skills and articulation through video lessons as well, which provide the same set of basic instruction as a teacher would.”
“The ONE Piano Bench is easy to assemble, portable, and sturdy. It is made from custom wood and features a synthetic leather cushion for greater playing comfort. It is available in black or white and is the perfect compliment to your ONE Light Keyboard or ONE Smart Piano.
The new bench will be available for $79 through the campaign. Estimated delivery date for The ONE keyboard, piano and bench are set for September 2015.
