To use our virtual piano, first open it via the piano icon in the footer:
When you open the piano as a coach, it will automatically open for all students in the session.
Students can also open the piano. However, as a coach, you can grant or deny them access to the button in the footer. This works the same way as app access management. Check out this article for that: How can I turn the apps on and off for single students?
You can play our virtual piano in several ways. Click or tap on the keys you want to play, or use your computer keyboard to play keys. But the best way is to use your e-piano to play our piano (only available with Chrome Browser). Just connect your keyboard/e-piano/vario system to your computer via USB. doozzoo should now register every keystroke.
The sound of your piano will be sent directly to all other participants in the session. At the same time, all participants will automatically see which keys you press.
Important note: Playing the doozzoo piano via an external midi keyboard only works with the CHROME browser or other browsers based on the chromium engine like EDGE ore BRAVE. This option is not available via Apple iPad and iPhone. Unfortunately, Apple does not allow Web-MIDI for IOS yet.
Here you can see an overview of all options of the piano:
(1) Select the size of the piano and the note names to be displayed. (These options do NOT apply to the other participants. So everyone can customize their piano).
a. Turn on and off the display of computer keys that you could use to play the piano.
b. Choose which note names you want to be displayed.
All: Show each piano key labeled with the corresponding note name.
Basic: Show only one label of Cs to identify the correct octave.
Off: Turns off all note names.
c. Here you can specify the size of the piano. You can choose from 88, 73, 61, 49 and 25 keys. Alternatively you can select "Automatic". This way doozzoo will automatically adjust the amount of keys to the size of your browser window.
(2) If you’re displaying less than 88 keys, you can shift the octave section. This will only shift the view, not the notes played via MIDI. You can usually adjust this transposition on your electric piano, if necessary. (The displayed shifting of the octaves does NOT transfer to the other participants). The computer keyboard shifts analogously to the visual shift, so that you can play lower or higher notes on your computer keyboard.
(3) When you or your opponent press the (right) sustain pedal, this field lights up.
(4) If you don't want others to see which keys you press, you can turn this off here. This is useful, for example, for ear training or similar applications where you don't want others to know which keys you've pressed.
(5) Turn the sound of the piano on and off. It will still visualize which keys are pressed, but the piano is muted.
