Just curious. How many people playing this game are musicians?

[Post New]by forensicMD on Jan 2, 09 5:39 PM
I have formal music training in piano and multiple brass instruments. I would never have considered this game without a music background. But I wonder if some of you did, or are doing, this game because of the puzzles alone? I know there were some music puzzles in Azada or one of the Dream Chronicles but that is different from this game based wholly on music. Thanks for curing my curiosity!

I've been playing since I was 5 and enjoyed the game. I had played most of the pieces at one time or another. You can also try playing with out the sound, trying to solve using logic and the colors.

oh- piano, organ and violin

I took piano and guitar lessons for years, but that was decades ago. My daughter was in choir, so she reads music too. My son doesn't read music, and is autistic - he finished the game faster than I did, because he used the hints a lot and was ignoring the music, just going by shapes.

I have no musical talent. The only thing I can play is the radio. But I loved this game because of the geometry. I hope they do another one about 10 times as long.

I have no musical talent whatsoever and I adore this game. I like putting the music together more by geometrics and then listening to the results. I would really like another game like Musaic Box.

I LOVED playing this game!!! I too am a musician (piano, organ, french horn among many others). I have been playing piano since I was 5 with formal training, and have also had voice training. I thought that this training helped in playing the game, as I played these songs at one time or another in my musical training. This game is AWESOME!!! I was surprised at how short it was, I went through it so quickly! Maybe that is my musical background?!

I hope they make a sequel also, about ten times as long.

I happen to have a musical talent as well. I have played most of my music
by ear until I started to go to school where you had music classes where
you could come to the music room and sing along with the music teacher.
I didn't even try to learn how to read music until I joined the school band
and then the glee club. Now that I'm much older I belong to the church
choir and I will still follow the notes but I still can't read music. It wasn't until
later in life that I got to learn some of these classic composers. I also
belong to a forum called Magle International Music. You musicians should
give us a visit.

I have no musical training but know the words to a thousand songs ..usually the old gold 50 ,60 & 70's ..but I had a great time with this wonderful game.. It really was a lot of fun finding the pieces and then trying to put them together..

Of course I knew several of the pieces in and out of the classicals ..although a tad frustrated when I couldn't figure out how the press worked..lol..

I hope someone puts another game like this together one day..I will certainly buy it..!!..

Oh I did forget to mention that I 'played' violin in grade 5 and learned Twinkle Twinkle Little Star ..
I have a new violin that I will one day take lessons to learn how to play ..

Again I loved this super fun game...

Sometimes I will sit with my flute and play along or harmonica. This game is
a lot of fun and helps me out with my music. I wonder if any of you realize
that one of the pieces was used in a pop song called "Stranger in Paradise"
which is my favorite?

I am not a musician, though I have musical talent. I have been to music school and learned to play piano, violin and recorder, and, well, some other things. That also fed my love to classical music, so I really enjoyed this game. I wish they would make another game like this! It was a lot of fun and too short.

kerli,
sincerely

I love that! Do you mind if I use it too? I can't play any musical device except the radio either.

I am an experienced musician and I like the several different ways you can solve the puzzles: by ear, by shape, by trial and error with hints ...

Music is not my job but I was paid some for it in the past. Started singing at age 4, piano age 8-12, euphonium / baritone horn, and lots more singing.

Playing this game with my 4 year old daughter is great!

I have piano training. I totally love this game and also wish it was 3xs longer. It is not that easy since the tiles are in prearranged forms, if it were easy then I would not have bought it.

I pressed hint once and several pieces went dark. Are the dark ones in the right place, or does it mean they are in the wrong place. I only did hint once and since I do not know what it means, I won't be doing that again.
