MusicPath – Connecting Remote Pianos Over Networks

musicpath homepage

Presenter: Karen Wilder

MusicPath interconnects digital acoustic pianos through advanced high-speed networks, allowing one pianist to play several pianos in real-time, assisted by videoconferencing. This creates a new learning dimension for teachers, institutions and musicians.

This amazing product developed by Dr. Christoph Both and Dr. Jim Diamond, at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, in partnership with Yamaha Canada Music Ltd., and The Royal Conservatory of Music was presented by Ms. Wilder on Thursday afternoon. She provided an overview of the evolution of the software and then stepped the audience through a thought provoking demonstration of the product. If you are interested in how music education can be brought to the homebound, and to promising music students in remote locations view the video located at http://musicpath.ca/action.htm.
