Project Description

Music Everywhere is an augmented reality piano learning tool that focuses on teaching improvisation in blues, rock, jazz and classical styles. Leveraging a bidirectional MIDI-over-Bluetooth connection with a Microsoft HoloLens AR device, students at the piano can engage with interactive lessons, watch virtual hand demonstrations, see and hear example improvisations, and play their own solos and accompaniment along with AR-projected virtual bands and musicians.


Often missing from traditional curriculums, musical improvisation can enhance performance skills, develop one's ear and improve understanding of theory and context.

Virtual Hand

Leap Motion and VR captured. Displayed in AR to demonstrate hand positioning and performance techniques, the Virtual Hand is a tool well suited for both subject and technology.

Virtual Band

3D-modeled virtual bands perform with you in the AR space, providing an optimal environment to learn about and practice improvisation concepts, scales and techniques.
