McCarthy Music is the fun way to learn to play piano! Connect your keyboard or controller to the McCarthy Music app (either wirelessly over Bluetooth, or directly connected via USB, using the Apple Camera Adapter Kit), and our free app will guide you through 8 different songs, providing real-time scoring and feedback along the way.

Features of this version of our app include:
* Custom built score rendering system, featuring different levels of zoom. Make the notes for your sheet music as large or as small as you want.
* Integration of the new Apple MIDI Bluetooth Device code, allowing fully wireless connection with the McCarthy Music Illuminating Piano.
* Themed software, allowing you to choose from one of four different graphical themes for the app.
* Real time scoring and feedback as you play through a song. Persistent data keeps track of how you’re doing over time, and real-time scoring lets you know how you’re doing on just the current performance.
* Each app installation supports many users per installation – each user can have a profile, their own scoring and achievements, themes and settings.

App limits itself

I’ve been using this app for a few months now, and for what it does it is great. It’s what it does not do that is frustrating. Why can’t I import my own music files? I have a music teacher and he gives me specific pieces to practice. These are not in the music store and I can’t import them into the app, so the app sits there useless.

Thank you for your mostly positive review!

I sent you an email trying to gather more information about your use cases. In short, if you take Live Piano Lessons through our app, your teacher can send you custom arrangements through our system today.

We'll look into extending this to all users. Thanks for taking the time to review our app.

Would like to use it but... not compatible with new iPad.

I have been waiting for a release which will allow me to use my new iPad.
Until that happens the legato III is an expensive table decoration. It will have no volume and not be able to use any sound from the library or available songs. None of this incompatible issues were mentioned prior to my purchase. Sticker just says Bluetooth connectivity. There doesn’t seem to be any hurry to fix this issue.

Beginning piano student. Cannot preview the songs.

I am a beginning piano student and so far I really like the app. But I cannot find a way to preview a sample of any song. Is there a way to preview a song I am looking into possibly purchase? Thank you.

Thank you for your review! We're working on that for sure. Have a great day!
