Customer Reviews

Good but could use improvements.

The good: allows you to quickly and easily see piano chord structure. Simple, effective interface. Good foundation to build from.

Needed improvements: 1) screen needs to rotate on iPad when orientation changes. 2) need to be able to play individual notes on selected chord (not just "play all notes). 3) need to be able to create a list of chord "favorites" to quickly be able to listen several chords without having to reselect them again. 4) need to show alternate fingerings, chord inversions.

Additional wish list: being able to save chord favorites per song. And maybe, just maybe, being able to add lyrics along with chord changes (simple cheat sheet or fake book functionality).

This app is a blockbuster, it is by far the best piano teaching tool I have experienced. D'Alessandro is a genius, bringing to us an app designed to make learning piano chords a pleasant and less difficult experience. His app has tremendously helped my grandchildren and increased their interest. Thanks Joseph for your incredible vision in developing this app.

Very disappointing!!

The app does not allow the user to play the chord. Pressing one key plays the whole chord regardless if the user does or not. There is a piano keyboard but it only plays one note at a time.

I suppose if you just want to use this as a reference to learn the notes and keys for the chords to play them on another keyboard this app is useful. However, if you were hoping to practice the chords in this app you are out of luck.
