This is a must have gadget for all budding musicians. The Gigiway Piano and Violin Learning Pen does exactly what it says on the tin. Simply point the pen at the title of the piece and the pen will play it to you through an inbuilt speaker. Alternatively, if you are struggling with a particular section skim the pen over that area to hear that chosen passage.
There is an option to slowdown the playback so that the musicians can really hear the piece and the pen has a digital metronome. And if all that was simply just not enough, you can even use it to ensure your instrument is in tune. The quality of the music is excellent as professional musicians were used in the recording. Now if all this seems a little bit too good to be true, there is one slight drawback.
The pen can only be used with a specific music book! The pen uses a light sensor which only works with a specifically designed book. The good news? More and more sheet music is expected to become available so you will be able to extend your repertoire.
