For the teacher wanting to inspire the class, for the music therapist looking for that magical contact and for the individual who has always longed to be a performer, this may be the answer. The QChord is an exciting digital instrument that strums like a guitar, plays chords like a piano and melody like a keyboard. Learn to play in seconds, then add features as you move through the multiple skill levels to become an expert. Use the LCD display when playing up to 84 different chord combinations, 100 instrument voices and fully orchestrated rhythms. To turn your QChord into a live concert, just plug in an optional QCard and strum. The QChord will teach, motivate and inspire – and you’ll have fun too!
