If you have been using Piano Marvel a while, you have probably been using it in Assessment Mode. Book Mode was introduced in Spring of 2016. If you are using a MIDI enabled piano you will be using Piano Marvel in assessment mode by default. This gives you all of the best features. If you are using Piano Marvel with an acoustic piano, you will want to use Piano Marvel in Book Mode. Here are the key differences between the two modes:

Assessment Mode:

  • Provides feedback on your performance
  • Tracks your lesson & song progress automatically
  • Allows for SASR tests
  • Tracks practice minutes

Book Mode:

  • No feedback on your performance
  • Allows you to manually track song progress
  • No SASR tests
  • Tracks practice minutes
