The benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) have sometimes been music to the ears of companies in fields such as manufacturing and health care. Increasingly, the technology is making itself heard in the field of musical education.

On Thursday, Kuke Music announced its AI-supported piano learning system would become part of the curriculums of more than 4,000 kindergartens across China.

The Kukey program combines smart pianos and digital courses, the company said. Cloud-based AI software can provide students with personalized guidance by analyzing finger movements data collected as they play, Kuke said.

Kukey also has a large music library containing copyrighted music from more than 900 record labels, according to Kuke.

The Chinese company said that it aims to bring Kukey to a total of 10,000 kindergartens by the end of this year.
