Play these instruments right here on my blog!

 I'm reposting this blog as per the request of a new member of MyEC. Enjoy, girl! 
Hello, my dear friends!
Do you ever wish you were able to play a musical instrument? The truth is we all do, don’t  we?  (Hope I’m  not bending the truth!)  Unfortunately,  there  could  be  some justifiable grounds for your dream failed to materialize. Perhaps you don’t have the means to own, for example, a piano as it costs you an arm and a leg. If you are one of those disappointed souls, the following instruments are coming to you for absolutely free! This is the moment you've been waiting for all this while. Please don't think that this is a childish prank, my friend. I'm deadly serious!! I know what is  crossing your mind right now!  Believe me,  I’m  not .insane and they are neither just  images of musical instruments  nor  e-toys!  They are  ‘real’ and you can use them straight away. The only difference is that they are ‘virtual.and you use either your computer keyboard or mouse to operate them. 
Well, what are you waiting for? Go on; give them a try! I’m sure you’ll have fun!

Lite Piano


How to use the Lite Piano

Click the  ‘question mark’ (?)  on the  top  right-hand  corner  of the piano.
This will show you the  characters.(letters,  numbers  and  symbols) matched
with the keys on your  computer  keyboard  that  correspond to the piano.
Press  an associated key on your keyboard to make the sound of that note
on the piano  
For a start,  try to play this series of musical notes(Use your computer keys)


Practise the song a few times.  Can you  guess the song  from the tune?
Now, for a change, try playing the song with the 'choir' tone! How's it?
For more 'tones',  click the option 'Full  Version'.  There are 4 different
tones under 'Sounds'.  Learn the SongPlay  and  Reset functions too! 


Player Piano


How to use the Player Piano:

Press the ‘Playbutton. A song will be played. This song is the default.  

Press the  ‘Songs’  button to pick .another song  from the list of songs.
Press the  ‘Play  button to listen to the song that you've  just selected.
[You. can hide the play list by clicking the  ‘songs  button again.  This will enable
you to see the piano keys.]
The  characters that you see  on the top of the  Player Piano are the  musical
notes of the song that is currently being played.
Now,. delete the musical notes of the current songCopy the musical notes
that  I have given above for the Lite Piano and paste onto the Player Piano's
musical notes box’.
Press the ‘slower (+)button and set the ‘Interval’ to 375.
Press the ‘Playbutton. Ok! You sould able to guess the song this time.
Click the ‘question mark (?) to learn more about  'Interval' and other things.

Here's another song for you to practise. (Set 'Interval' to 400 or 425


Do you know the name of the song?      
Use the  Player Piano  and  Lite Piano to play the song with  your computer keyboard keys.  If you are using the  Player Piano,  just  look at the musical
notes you pasted on the top and play accordingly. Isn't it much convenient?

playing. The arrow displays a different song every time you press it.

one at a time. For example, under 'loops' (the tiny green buttons) you can choose a

suitable rhythm to accompany your melody.
