iPerform3D, the In-browser Way to Learn How to Play Guitar

Who amongst you has not dreamed about being a rock star, living the dream and having it all? The first step in your endeavor would be to learn how to play a musical instrument, and since the clarinet does not exactly say rock-n-roll, perhaps it would be best to focus on the guitar.

iPerform3D, developed by MTW Studios, teaches you how to play the guitar, but in a very handy way – by that I mean all the lessons are provided directly into your web browser and the tutorials are in 3D format, allowing you to change the view angle as well as slow down/speed up the presentation. The other great thing is that MTW Studios has preferred to go with guitar veterans in creating these tutorials rather than with hot new names from the music industry.

There is a 5-day free trial, but once that time expires, the service will cost you between $40 for a beginner course and $140 for a whole year’s subscription. There is one other catch: in order for iPerform3D to work directly in your browser, you need to install the Unity-3D rendering engine, and doing so is not exactly a piece of cake. The only upside is that once this task is completed, iPerform3D will work with several browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari.

Founder and CEO of MTW Studios, Robert Miller, comments: “Now aspiring guitarists of almost any level can learn how to play their favorite songs and impress friends with a few music lessons in a matter of hours. It’s like ‘Guitar Hero’ but the real thing. Online education is a rapidly-growing industry because people want to learn on their own time, from the convenience of their home, at an affordable price, and have fun while doing so. Until now, the best way to deliver educational content online has been some form of video, which is more of a ‘sit back’ paradigm. Online video gaming, in contrast, has exploded because it’s a ‘lean forward’ experience. iPerform3D combines the desire to learn at home with the ‘lean forward’ interactive experience of gaming.”

It seems that Robert Miller and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger are on the same page here. Chad Kroeger stated a while back, during an interview for Jay Leno that kids should put down Guitar Hero and start playing for real.
