Piano Maestro pros+cons
Pros: Piano Maestro is a fun way to learn piano for kids (and probably adults too.) You can also do it on your device if you don't have a piano. You can find books on there too in the "Methods" Section. You can slow it down and learn the music, plus putting add-ons to help you like it stops when you fumble on a note, it gives the note names if you choose, and can slow down the tempo, etc.
Cons: The cons are that sometimes the speakers don't work when you hit the note on your piano, and sometimes when it simplifies the songs they are kind of too easy and boring. You get points for how well you do on a piece of music, and if you do the add-ons, it takes away points, which I get but sometimes it annoys me. That's all!!!
Really helpful, some bugs are frustrating
Starting around chapter 16 with "rather be" the screen freezes but music keeps going and when it unfreezes it skips to catch up and you loose credit for those notes played. This Also happens in chapter 20 with "just the way you are". Won't let you progress past the level, even if you played it fine, the program doesn't recognize. The pauses/freezes seem to be more frequent as the songs get more complicated, which is a bummer, because it's so much fun to practice when it's working properly.
Review and Suggestions
This app is awesome! It helps me learn the piano and it helps make it fun, I remember there was a point in my life i wanted to learn the piano. When I discovered this app, it blew me away. I have been able to teach my self these sounds fluently without needing a private teacher. Now, some suggestions... I like the feature that you listen to the song on the touch piano preview mode. But can you make it to where you listen to the song preview With the background music, plus it would be cool if you add more cool songs. If it's not too much Trouble!
