Editors’ Notes

You’ve always promised yourself you’ll learn how to play piano one day. How about today? No need to hook up a special keyboard: Simply Piano listens to what you’re playing on any keyboard or piano—or lets you use an onscreen one. Within minutes you’ll start reading music, and soon you’ll be playing along with familiar songs and adopting good habits. Even if you’ve never touched a keyboard in your life, Simply Piano makes it easy to learn.

It works if you use it right..

Firstly I advise if you are committed to learning you have to use the right equipment, yes the app listens to you play so no direct connection is required but using the app this way will not give you the best results this is not the fault of the app but rather the technology it uses to listen to how you play. The only way to get the best out of this app or anything similar is to use a good piano that has Bluetooth built in, I have a Roland fp-30 with Bluetooth and the app works perfectly through this piano. I have been playing for about a month now and I the app in my opinion is fantastic and worth every penny to get the results you want. If you are truly dedicated to learning invest in a descent piano and an ipad and I would guarantee you will live the app. There is a support group on Facebook that the admins run and this is also very good everyone helps each other and everyone there is great. If you actually want to learn invest in decent equipment and download the app you won’t regret it.
Update, been playing six months now and I can now read music and to a point automatically playing and recognising music I hear, I would like to start using simply guitar it is a shame that there is no deal available as far as I am for using both apps.

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.
