1. Music score and piano roll notation make it fun and easy to learn!
Chordana Play displays the music score and piano roll notation for built-in songs and MIDI files. With MIDI files, you can select which tracks to play with your left and right hands, or you can assign the melody to the right hand and chords generated by the app to your left hand. Slow the tempo, transpose the score into a key that is easier to play, and with the AB repeat function, take lessons (practice) at your own pace.
You can take three-step lessons using the virtual on-screen keyboard. Select from 128 kinds of tone quality. Plus, a scoring system lets you keep track of your improving skills.

2. Use the 50 built-in songs or import standard MIDI files
Play one of the 50 songs included in Chordana Play, or add MIDI files.
Chordana Play can generate a music score from the MIDI file and detect chords, too, making it easy to learn to play two-handed piano pieces. You can search for and download MIDI files using the browser on your smartphone or tablet, then import them directly into Chordana Play. You can also import MIDI files from your computer to Chordana Play.

3. Lesson Mode
Using either the app's keyboard or a USB-connected musical instrument keyboard, you can take a three-step lesson while following the music score and piano roll. The scoring feature makes mastering a song even more fun.

4. Audio Mode
Play back audio on your device with musical tools such as key shift and tempo change, looping, and melody cancel.

■ Performance mode
When a song is played, the light-up keyboard shows the left-hand part and the melody. The notes and chords for the melody are shown on the keyboard's LCD.

■ Save mode
You can transfer and save the song's right-hand melody and left-hand chord data, or the left-hand performance data, to the keyboard. You can then play along to the song and use the step-up lesson function.

A very useful tool to learn how play a piano

His app offers a lot of tool to make the learning experience easy.

I only have one small problem with the app. It does not support the Sustain Pedal. I know the pedal is optimal for most keyboards, but I would be nice enabled that in the app in case we buy one

Won't import MIDI files

The app was once halfway decent when I downloaded it the first time about a year ago, I had ZERO problems when it came to transferring midi files to the app, and then onto my LK-265, but now it's a completely different story...The app will no longer load imported midi files, no matter how many times I try, and no matter how many different methods I try to use...the outcome is the same, so basically this app is 100% completely useless. The sad thing about this is that the app hasn't improved and/or been upgraded one single bit since it was first released, and you know that the developers have read the reviews attributed to their app, so that goes to tell you how much they care about their customers. I wonder when someone from Casio will finally speak up and do something about this ongoing 2-3 year problem. You’re letting your customers down Casio! Step up and fix the problem. -Dave.B

Thank you for using Chordana Play.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

MIDI files can be imported using method A or B.

A. Import using the Files app:
When you have downloaded the MIDI files via your computer’s browser, select “Save to Files” in the Share menu and add the MIDI files to the “Chordana Play” folder.

B. Import using iTunes:
Connect the smart device to the computer via USB and synchronize the data in iTunes. Then click “Chordana Play” in App > File sharing and add the MIDI files to the “Documents” list.

How to add midi on iOS

The Chordana app seems to have broken in iOS 13 and can not access downloaded MIDI files via mobile safari. What does work is to download the MIDI file on your desktop computer. Open iTunes (yuck, I know) connect your phone (you can turn off sync in preferences if you don't back up your phone to your computer). Now click the mobile icon in the header. On the left under settings is "file sharing" click and a list of apps should appear from your phone. Click "chordana play" and drag and drop midi files here. Works great. Really like the app but needs an update to work with iOS 13.
