Best Piano Lessons
So post pandemic brain fog is what inspired me to jump into piano lessons. Life went back to normal but my brain didn't! I wanted to resharpen my mind bc I was losing my train of thought mid sentence too often and having a hard time just paying attention to the subject at hand after all the passive short video entertainment I engaged in. In short, it's working, and I'm excited about that! Im reactivating my brain! Learning piano, reading music, timing notes takes focus. And it's rewarding! The piano lessons are well organized, broken down in bite sizes, and the instructors do an amazing job at teaching. And now the piano is a relaxing part of my evening when I practice the songs I've learned balanced with the next lesson. This is the first time I'm learning to read music and the note timing which opens up a whole world of music. Each instructor brings a little different awareness and reminders so it's a well rounded experience. The song bank is superb with easy to difficult pieces so we all get a chance to play great music at our given level. Also connecting my keyboard to my iPad to track the notes through the app when learning is a game changer and makes me so appreciative of where tech has taken us. So glad I chose this program.

We're really happy to hear that Playground Sessions is helping you rebuild your attention! There are real cognitive benefits to learning to play piano, demonstrated by research from the University of Geneva (https://www.unige.ch/medias/en/2023/la-pratique-musicale-freine-le-declin-cognitif). If you want to request songs, please follow the link below.
This app is great for all ages. We got a family plan and this has been great for my preteen and us adults alike. Besides being much more cost effective than private lessons, I find it to be much better. With traditional lessons and practice, I find the practice often times means practicing mistakes, etc but with play sessions you get immediate feedback on whether you are hitting the right notes or beat…so you aren’t picking up bad habits and your practice is effective. I love the song diversity as well and that most of the songs are recognizable to me, whether they are a classic, from the 80s or something current. I highly recommend this.

If you think of songs you'd like to see added to our library, you can request them via UserVoice:
Love it !-Sort of. Well mostly I do because I learned so much great songs! Just a few Q’s. Where is that LEGENDARY piano player you’re going all talk talk about? I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for him. Why? Well, I’m a mere eleven year old girl and was looking for a piano teaching app. That was only after my Mum was upset with JoyTunes. So our Yamaha was advertising A LOT about your app so we got it. It wasn’t BAD or anything. But I searched your app WIDE ALL OVER for that music legend of yours but I couldn’t find it. Help!! Also I want to be as good as him. So HELP!!!(Again.) Also please make it easier to access the songs. Now, other than that, it’s a good app, and I recommend that people try it. (Tip; control the volume with the thing that controls the sound on your piano.) Happy playing! SuperWinger

We’re glad you like the songs that are available!
What you are seeing are most likely references to Harry Connick, Jr., with whom we had a partnership for a while. Harry recorded a number of video lessons for our Bootcamp that covered the basics of the piano and some more advanced topics like improvisation. The partnership having ended, we’re replacing his lessons with new ones featuring Playground’s David Sides and Phil Anderson, who we hope you’ll find to be engaging teachers.
We are working to make the songs easier to access!
