Perfect for beginners (and so much cheaper than piano lessons!)

I can’t express how much I am enjoying this app. I have always wanted to be able to play the piano and after a couple of months on the app, I find that I can read and play (basic) sheet music! I am a complete beginner and have very little musical talent but have been so many times where I’ve said to myself, “Oh my god, look at me! I’m actually playing the piano.” The app is simple in design and the gamification of it means it’s a joy to play the piano.

In addition, the creators regularly add more songs to play and there are some great community challenges you can participate in. I’ve joined the Facebook group, which has provided me with lots of motivation to practise as well as given me a place to ask any questions I have.

There are some reviews on here complaining about the price, however, it is significantly cheaper than piano lessons would be. Others critique the lack of theory being taught. Simply piano is not for players who wish to become experts- there are better resources out there for those at more advance levels. However, if you are like me and you want to progress as a beginner to get to a point where you can play the piano for your own enjoyment, then this app is perfect for you.

It works for me.

I am 67, with no musical talent. A few years ago I tried to learn the piano using a different app, Piano Marvel, and weekly lessons with a teacher. I made a little progress, but after two months I gave up. I had spent a lot of time with the app and practising from sheet music, but my progress was very slow, and getting slower as I was given more difficult (but still elementary) pieces to play.

Then the lockdown was imposed so I restarted Piano Marvel, no private lessons of course. I soon remembered why I gave up Piano Marvel. My ear for music is not good enough for that app, I cannot identify and distinguish between chords, nor repeat a pattern of notes from memory. I am sure that to be a good pianist these are basic requirements, absolutely essential for progress to the higher levels. But I am not aiming to be a good pianist, I just want to be able play the piano confidently, read music, accompany songs and enjoy myself.

Simply Piano is great fun but challenging, and I love playing along with well known songs as I make progress. I am really glad I found it, since it has been a brilliant way to spend the lockdown.
