"I purchased Piano Tutor for my 7 year old as he is struggling with learning to read music. This was just the app that I was looking for. Works great as he is more motivated to sit down with the iPod than in front of the Piano. It is a great little app and he is making great progress." - Chris B

Ratings and Reviews
Wrong Title on Some Songs
It's now 2021 and I'm still loving this app. That being said, I need to admit that there are problems with some of the songs. I plan on sitting down to write which songs have the wrong titles, but at the moment, I don't have paper and pen ready. All I can say is that it would be great if the developers can look into this problem. Hopefully, I will prepare a list of the songs that are mixed up with their titles soon. Until then, this is how my review stands. But thank you for a really fun app. I am leaving my previous review here, unless there's a problem in that it's too long.
Old Review Before 2021
Getting Better! Not only do I love this app, but after leaving it sitting on my old iPad 4th Generation for well over a year, I decided to try playing the songs again. Thank goodness the developers gave an update because I discovered that by trying it out again, I have actually improved on my sight-reading. The notes came quicker to my stubborn head and I did a lot better than I did before I dropped my practicing. When I first bought the app, I purchased all the songs. Now I am wishing for more. The next great thing the developers could do is offer more songs. There are lots of simple songs in the old book that we could buy to practice and have fun. I am in my sixties and I have always loved the piano but I never played one because I never had one to play. Now I do. The songs are good for children too! This was and is a great buy! More songs please!!
Just beginning and luv a challenge
I am 65 and due to an injury my favorite hobbies I can do no more. I started playing this as a game while recovering and became addicted. It stimulates your mind especially if u have never studies music. Also as a secondary benefit I learned the notes and subsequently I bought a piano and now am playing !! I wish it would give the fingering on the songs as with no formal training I probably don't play the notes correctly. It's also great to practice when traveling so you don't forget what u learned as sometimes that's a problem as a senior. I also recommend the Joytunes app which r more formalized lessons.
I’ve always wanted to play the piano so for Christmas I treated myself to a small keyboard for $99 (complete with stool and earphones so I can practice silently). Piano Tutor is terrific if you’re trying to teach yourself. It has so many different exercises and levels of practice. Great for learning to read music which is really one of my major goals. I am having so much fun with this and any time I have a few spare minutes is good to pick up my iPad and do a Piano Tutor exercise. I’m 75 so it’s never too late to acquire a new passion.
