I Guess You Need To Learn Piano On The Web These Days
Clinton Clark teaches you piano at PianoNanny.com.

Too bad Jump! Music's Piano Discovery system has been discontinued.

I just found my old version, of Jump! Music's Piano Discovery system, in my basement and hooked it up to a very old PC.

The PC needed to have Windows 95 re-installed. I had the disk for that, and it installed nicely, but stopped and asked me for a serial # from my Certificate of Authenticity for Windows 95.

What! It's seven years later and Microsoft still wants my serial #? I bet if I installed DOS 1.0 it would require a serial # now.

Luckily, I had the certificate filed away in a folder, next to my grade school report cards, and completed the install.

Then I needed to hook the keyboard up to the MIDI port of the PC. Short version of the story; the MIDI IN and OUT on the Keyboard need to be connected to the MIDI OUT and IN cable on the MIDI cable.

MIDI IN <-> MIDI OUT
MIDI OUT <-> MIDI IN

Now I've completed Lesson One and can play Ode To Joy!

Oh Joy.
