The Most Important Steps To Start
Our sophisticated interactive animation spells out every note of every score in Gentle Piano module. Computers with the large monitors are the best fit for our system. Your vision should be feeling comfortable with the music notation, especially at the very beginning of your learning experience. You can choose any desktop or notebook with Windows or Mac for learning with Hiner Method. Organizing computer+piano station is the foundation for your successful learning/teaching experience! The best practice is to dedicate a computer just for Soft Mozart and to have the access to the system 24/7!
You have to have at least 61-key digital keyboard that is connectible to a computer in order to get started with our system. Interaction is the main key for learning with Soft Mozart. If you have an acoustic piano, it is wonderful for polishing purposes.
If you have a MIDI controller, it will work too! You will have to place check mark in Soft Mozart Tuning window to make it work:
Save the file on your computer. Find the file where your computer typically saves and run it. In some browsers files are getting saved without .exe at the end. Add the extension manually!

1. YOUR EQUIPMENT: computer, cable, piano. It is all about communication! You, your digital piano and your computer should communicate in a nice, GENTLE manner.
A. Our curriculum requires at least 61-keys (5 octaves) keyboard or digital piano. We recommend a simple, (not touch sensitive) keyboard for beginners between 24 months and 5 year old.
*Do you know that Mozart used mostly that many keys?*
B. Connecting wires. If you have USB piano keyboard, make sure that all the drivers are compatible with your computer OS (for that you may GOOGLE the following phrase: 'Free download <YOUR PIANO MANUFACTURER'S BRAND> MIDI driver for <YOUR WINDOWS OS>
If you have IN and OUT MIDI cable connection, you may need to download the latest drivers of the MIDI cable company, IF your MIDI chord won't work for you.
Attention: If connection is not working, first try to switch IN and OUT outlets regardless what is written on the cables!
2. Checking the connection.
1. Open the Gentle Piano Module
2. Press any key on your piano/keyboard
3. If you see on your computer screen a butterfly or a spider, the connection is established.
Find the TUNING program.Click on the icon with you right mouse and run the application as administrator
By default the sounds for all of our modules are set to come from your computer. But if your computer and piano are properly connected, after clicking on the drop down button you will see another option that will make all the sounds come from your piano! This will make a better quality of sound!
To solve ANY problem with the connection always remember: updated drivers either for your piano or your MIDI cable is the key.
