The ONE Piano Hi-Lite turns any piano into an educational tool

The Hi-Lite strip can be placed on top of a keyboard and connects via micro-USB to a tablet or smartphone.

The ONE Music Group has announced the pre-order launch of its new product, The ONE Piano Hi-Lite.

Keen readers may remember our review of The ONE Light Keyboard and its jam-packed educational app. Now, those who already own a keyboard or piano don’t have to buy a who new instrument to benefit from The ONE’s educational technology, as the Hi-Lite gives consumers the option to incorporate the firm’s piano learning programs into any standard 88-key piano or digital keyboard.

According to a survey conducted by The Gallup Organization and commissioned by NAMM, 50% of Americans receive formal music instruction at some point during their lives but only 12% actually continue to play as adults.

The ONE Music Group says it aims to change this and improve music education growth with its smart learning, technology-focused products.

“Through the great successes of our product line and classroom program, we identified a large group of potential customers that already owned a piano at home but wanted to experience the modern instruction The ONE provides,” said Ben Ye, Global CEO and co-founder of The ONE Music Group.

“The development of The ONE Piano Hi-Lite is a further testament to our dedication to transforming music education and providing a means to make it more easy, accessible, and enjoyable, for all ages and levels of expertise.”

The Hi-Lite strip can be placed on top of a keyboard and connects via micro-USB to a tablet or smartphone – it does not require any installation onto the existing piano or keyboard.

To access the instructional programs, users have to download The ONE Smart Piano’s free application on the connected iOS or Android device, they can then explore thousands of pieces of sheet music, more than 100 video lessons, fast-tracked lessons for beginners, and interactive games.

The Hi-Lite is lined with LED lights that sync with these programs to signal which keys to play when. Advanced laser sensor technology syncs with the program’s lesson or game, correlating the light colour and change speed depending on skill level.

Additionally, auto-correction enables the LED lights to pause until the correct keys are pressed. The ONE Piano Hi-Lite also can be used in The ONE Piano Classroom, a music-learning platform available to educational institutions and teachers.

TheONE Piano Hi-Lite retails for $269.99 and is now available for pre-order on Indiegogo for $199.99 in light of National Piano Month.

Official launch via additional large-scale, online retail stores and shipment to North American pre-orders will begin October 2017. The product is available in onyx black, with more colours available in the future.
