Playground Sessions is a new human/software combo approach to learning to play an instrument from Zag, a brand development unit of ad agency BBH. Zag partnered with self-taught YouTube piano phenomenon David Sides and digital company Rain Interactive on the web-based learning system. Playground Sessions allows users to learn piano by playing popular  tracks, with Sides acting as a step-by-step video guide. Students can  follow along with Sides on specific tracks, then, in practice mode, they  can play songs while getting automated feedback, with green and red  indicators of correct and incorrect notes.
