Tap on the screen and magically perform beautiful music!

Touch Pianist is a musical toy / instrument that allows the user to perform hard-to-play classical piano music favorites (from composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Satie, Debussy to name a few) just by tapping the rhythm of the piece's particular sound events on a computer keyboard or a touch screen.

It also provides live visualisation of the pieces that are being performed. There is no score keeping, the user is free to perform the music in any way they wish. The premise is that it is really fun to perform a piece you know well, exactly like you feel it with so little effort.

Touch Pianist has CoreMIDI support so you can use your favorite piano / sound plug-in in your computer as a sound source if you wish.

Some of the highlights from the included pieces:

Debussy - Clair de Lune
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata (All movements)
Erik Satie - Gymnopédies (1, 2 and 3)
Chopin - Most popular pieces, and all 24 preludes
Bach - Well Tempered Klavier Book 1 (All preludes and fugues)
Beethoven - Pathetique Sonata (All movements)

Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Brahms, Schumann and many, many more! Playing them is extremely fun, and no prior musical skill is needed. Give it a try and you'll see.

I wish this would be updated for my iPad

This, for the longest time, was my comfort app. Whenever I was sad or anxious, I would open it and “play” a song. I even requested Scenes from Childhood and they added it!

Unfortunately, as the years have gone by, the images no longer apear clearly (they’re super glitchy) and the sound is sometimes odd.

I wish there would be an update every so often so i could keep using this without all the glitches.

Fun little app

Nice way to introduce piano music to grand children.
Personally, I would like the option of seeing the actual notes as a possible additional purchase.

The ads are awful!

I don't mind ads on a free app, but these ads are awful. Every time you go back to the main menu you get an ad and every ad has video. And since you have the sound turned up to hear the app the video is really loud. My choices are buy a song or delete the app. It really feels like bait and switch to have to pay to get rid of an unpleasant experience.
