Ratings and Reviews
Great piano learning app
Update: for those having note recognition issues, use headphones. You can still hear the piano but the accompaniment music doesn't interfere with the microphones picking up played piano notes. Had zero issues with software hearing notes this way.
I’m a 53 yr old newbie to piano (I play tuba but doesn’t fit well with other family instruments). I’ve dinked around with piano through the years but want to play cord pads mainly on keyboard with family that plays piano or guitar. I need to get some note learning and muscle memory working in my favor to be something other than an embarrassment.
I have a long road ahead but I’m having fun blasting through the lessens. At first it felt a bit kid oriented however that soon changed after the first few lessens.
Love that the app works with MIDI - I’m practicing at midnight with headphones! I’d never be able to learn on a regular piano with my and my family’s schedule. Thank you for including MIDI!
My goal is to play a few (up to six) songs with family after one year for church. My goal is to not miss more than 30 days out of a year of practice.
I’m excited to see where this app will take me!! So far it’s about right, however it’s wise to go ever some songs several times before moving on, which you can do by pressing the back button before the practice song ends (saves a little time from having to go through the reward screen.
I’ll update my review further after more lessens are completed.
Great for beginners - Tedious for others
It’s great for beginners! There’s just two things I’m not a fan of. When I first downloaded this app, I didn’t have a real keyboard available to me, so I had to use the virtual one in the app. The problem is the keys are smaller than my fingers, so it’s hard to make sure you hit them perfectly. I found that hitting them slightly to the side either wasn’t recognized, or was recognized as the note next to the correct key. But obviously, this will not be a problem for those who have a physical piano/keyboard available to them. Another criticism that I have is that you have to unlock everything starting from the very beginning. That’s great for beginners, and I understand that’s who this is meant for. But it would be nice for those who already know a little bit, or those who play other instruments and already know what clef and a staff are to be able to start at their current skill level and skip what they’ve already learned elsewhere. Though with that said, it seems that the lessons are fairly quick, so it’s not the end of the world. It’s just an annoyance for those who aren’t complete beginners who have no musical knowledge under their belt, going into this.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for your review! I’m happy to update you that we have enlarged the size of the on-screen virtual keyboard. I hope you’ll find the current size more suitable and easy to use. If you have more feedback or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact our team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
best piano app!
okay to start this off, i don’t usually write reviews but i thought that this really just deserved one. i just want to say this app is so well created. if you had trouble finding an irl teacher, or piano app, i assure you this is the one. it would help to have prior music experience, especially when it comes to reading notes. but all is well, because they tell you every note, and breaks everything down into little videos, quizzes, games and playing tests! it’s everything you’ve ever wanted! best part is, the app listens to you play to check for accuracy, i don’t know what else anyone would want. the only downside i’d prolly have to say is that sometimes the app says the note is wrong/right when it actually isn’t. but most of the time it’s all good! anyway i hope this helps you download the app, ALSO last thing, everything is FREE! xx
