Putting in the time to practice is the key to learning any skill. It isn't clear from the article but I'd bet that these machines weren't placed in homes but kept in central locations for maintenance purposes. That would mean a trip down to the center for practice. Good luck with that.

Skill and finesse as well as feelings are involved in music, that's why it is considered a performing art. Machines just can not teach that, only humans can.
