I like the app but doesn’t work sometimes..

The app is helpful and easy to understand. Which I do like, however, the app detects I’m playing a whole different key. It is hard to learn the piano on this app when it is saying you are playing a key wrong. I’ve learned a lot from this app but it is frustrating I have to play the key multiple times to move on. I’ve studied each key, to make sure it wasn’t me playing the wrong key, but it wasn’t. On the bottom of the screen it shows the keyboard, and when you play a key it shows which one you are playing, so when i play the key it wants me to play, it says I’m playing a different one. And to move on, I have to play a key that isn’t required. But on the bottom of the screen It says I’m playing the correct key. to play, I either, play the wrong key and it moves me on, or keep playing the right key over, and over, again and then it moves me on. Sometimes it doesn’t even move me on so I HAVE to play the incorrect key. So this will not help me become a better pianist by telling me the correct key is the wrong key, and the wrong key is the correct key. So I think they should fix that. But other than that it’s is a nice app. It is helpful other than the wrong key thing. It’s easy to understand which is great for young kids who want to learn by them self, like myself.
But I really hope they fix that so I can give them a way better rating. If this wasn’t a problem I would give them a 5/5.

So sorry for this issue. This occurs when your piano is not tuned to A4=440hz (concert pitch). If you adjust the tuning on your piano, this should solve the problem. Please let us know if this works for you!

So fun - lots of Christmas music

I honestly can’t believe I can play piano with two hands now. I’m nearly done with essentials 3 and it’s amazing how much I’ve learned. I really love being able to read and play regular sheet music (it’s included within the app), which was always my goal. My only hesitation on recommending this app to everyone are some of the music choices. I’m not religious but there are a lot of Christian songs to work through, carols especially. I don’t mind them, as I know them well and that makes them easier for me to learn, but if you’re not Christian or don’t know carols at all it might be a barrier to you. One more note, the further I get in the course the more I’m wanting a keyboard to plug into (I’m using a real piano). I feel like sometimes it can’t “hear” the notes when I’m playing 4 at a time for example. This is something that Simply Piano acknowledges but I feel like I got quite far without one. As for the expense, my whole family is using it and we’re now playing lots of sheet music. Other sites have sheet music for about $5-6 a song. I think for all of us using it and getting sheet music it’s a great deal.
