Kid's Piano Deluxe is a fun way for beginning music students to learn the basics. Digitally recorded sounds from a grand piano are played in response to tapping the keys. Songs appear at the top of the screen as the app keeps track of correct key presses. If an incorrect note is played the note is highlighted to help the student find the right key. The students progress is tracked in a scoreboard where accuracy is shown as a percentage.

Good concept, not game
The concept is good, I actually decided to purchase this when I saw the ambiguously toned hand which is great for racial diversity for children...unlike almost all the other games that have light peach hands.
Unfortunately, the game is not intuitive and is NOT for beginners. This game does not recognize when keys are being pressed nor does it show when a learner is doing well or not. There is no system of “reward” that creates the perception the learner is doing whatever is expected and there are no clear directions that explain what is expected. I am sad that the game is not what I thought it would be and I would advice people NOT spend $2 on this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
