The magic element of this game is the piano experience. You can play the piano instantly by reading song LYRICS.....not notes. No lessons, learning or practice time. Just match colored lyrics of popular songs to colored decals on the keyboard. YES, it's now possible to PLAY the piano... without learning first!
What is IVOREEZ?
IVOREEZ is a product and method combination. Piano decals on the keyboard are used in conjunction with specially coded song lyrics found on the website, so all you do is match the colors, that's it!
IVOREEZ is NOT a learning system. The common practice is that you learn, memorize, and rehearse. After a month, you get to play an outdated song that you'll never again play in public. Even the newer learning systems require you to devote a significant amount of practice time and a requirement to learn some music theory - all this BEFORE the the enjoyment of actually playing a song.
IVOREEZ allows you to choose popular songs on the radio today, play without instruction, and enjoy music while indirectly gaining practical music skills. There are no notes to read, no notation or symbols to interpret, or theory to memorize - nothing your brain must process other than matching colors.
Be the life of the party. Everyone loves music in a casual setting. It's a surefire way to connect and create memories. Play for your friends while they sing, and record a party everyone will watch with envy!
For the rock star in you, grab an instrument and make your own rock band. This method lets you create mash ups, create your own renditions using Top 40 songs, change the style, rhythm and sequence of the song to your own creation. We provide the foundation, you create the music!
Who is going to love IVOREEZ?
Anyone that wants to play the piano or post their performances online will love IVOREEZ! Our target audience is not limited by age or music ability. People of all skill levels can enjoy IVOREEZ, but we really want to bring music to those who always wanted to play but never had the time, never had the opportunity, never had the money, or never had the desire to continue learning. We are now taking all of those excuses away from you!
What your donation will fund
Your donation to our Kickstarter campaign will primarily go towards website completion, app development, and copyright fees. Full app development is a stretch goal which we will update you on as the campaign progresses.
If we reach our Kickstarter funding goal, those of you who have pledged an amount to receive decals will get those quickly. If we don't reach our Kickstarter goal, then you will be able to order the decals on our website, which we'll open just after the Kickstarter campaign ends.
Thank you so much for viewing. Thank you in advance for your pledge and most of all for helping me spread the love of music.
IVOREEZ came about from years of interaction with thousands of students, clients and fellow musicians. In that time, I've developed a passion for making piano playing easily attainable to everyone, especially children. As a product of public schools, I know the value of music in my formative years and I'm committed to fundraising for music advocacy through IVOREEZ.

Be a YouTube Star!
You've got a voice. You've watched them all. Now, it's your turn!
We're developing a music app that will allow you to record your piano and vocal performance and post directly to your YouTube account. No piano skills? With this app, you will have the chops to accompany yourself and show the world that you've got real talent.
The objective of the game is to be an IVOREEZ Legend. The user will complete each level by showcasing your talent and posting those performances, build a fan following and compete for the national title. The Ultimate Legend wins a recording session with a YouTuber and can begin his/her career just like Justin Beiber and other online superstars!
Risks and challenges
Marketing is always the largest component to any launch. In this case, it's the entire campaign. Another piano method is as sexy as teeth pulling. I knew that separating the "learning" from the word "piano" is a grandiose effort and one met with bitter memories of strict teachers, blank stares and wasted time. And, it's not just you. I've heard endless stories of regret and I'm confident that this method breaks those stereotypes.
Why? Because it's the only method that removes learning and delivers genuine "play" time. All other systems disguise this with fun, interactive games, lighted keyboards, or online observation. They all do one thing (some exceptionally well): Teach. The color match system goes around the teaching by allowing you to just play, then learn if you are so inspired.
There are other color methods but their precept is to identify (learn) notes prompted by these colors. The IVOREEZ method goes beyond key recognition and aids in chord pronunciation (distinct set of 3 notes) to support melody. That means that you play all the same colors and you make music instantly. Not learn music instantly.
Nothing replaces real music knowledge and good old fashioned practice. Unfortunately, the learning required to perform one song is more than most can handle. It easily discourages those who have no other aspirations than to enjoy the experience, with a song they choose, on a level they can achieve. Playing on their terms. That's the concept!
And one I believe that will puts the desire in the hands of the user, not the teacher or parent. That has made all the difference in my 20 years as a music teacher.
Now, letting the world know that it exists is the evergrowing challenge.
To make the distinction between the common model of piano lessons and this innovation, no matter how effective or popular, is the greatest feat. That's why I need your help.
Instant play does exist.
It does work.
It is rewarding.
It is easy.
It is a unique experience that will make you feel like a rockstar.
