NOBILIS announces The first real music teacher on Nintendo DS™:

Music remains a major frustration for most of us. Only the bravest and those who could stand those boring and tough music lessons are now able to play music and live that unique experience. For the rest, you can still try to touch that feeling by playing a rhythm based video game and shaking a plastic guitar… but it will never be (sound) the same.

BUT now with“MUSIC”, a new edutainment game for the Nintendo DS coming out in April 09, you could learn and play music in a FUN and EASY WAY!

“MUSIC” brings a serious music learning method on DS developed by Shiro Tsuji a famous Japanese music teacher.

Learning music at all ages is now possible on DS!!!

About Shiro Tsuji’s method

Shiro Tsujis is a famous Japanese musician who is a music teacher too. His book and method to learn music has been a real success in Japan!

A NEW APPROACH OF MUSIC EDUCATION

Shiro Tsuji takes his music lessons experience, university piano instruction, solfege instruction, and choral instruction and puts it into familiar, easy-to-understand words and phrases for those who are just starting to learn to read music.

Through enjoyable hands-on repetition rather than the explanation of musical grammar, students are easily able to acquire a practical knowledge of musical theories.
